no need for dp needles to make these slippers.  If anyone has used the socks on o1 needle technique you can use it here with great sucess.  I have made at least 2 dozen of these slippers as gifts since the pattern first appeared on knitty.com with just one needle.  my favorite yarn to make them with is lopi, 2nd fav is brown sheep.  also a great way to use up leftovers -- go funky with a mix and match color pattern.  I am wearing them now and lovin' 'em!

I'm using bigger yarn and needles in the hope that these will work for a big footed guy. I haven't changed the pattern though. I think the felting process is pretty forgiving so you should be able to felt them down to the right size for you bf. I've neglected mine for a long time to work on other holiday knitting. i should get back to work on these.

I made a pair of these for my dad (just finished them this morning!)  His are about a size ten I think.  The pattern says to take the length of the foot, multiply but 1.3 and then subtract 3.5 to know how loing it should be before starting the toe decreases.  That's what I did.  I'll let you know how they turn out once I felt them.
Here's a prefelting shot (with a bottle of "soothing foot lotion" for scale. Smiley



I'll post a photo once I felt them.

i decided that since i have to make a pair of huge socks anyways, i should just make some unfelted normal ones and not "waste" all that time knitting huge socks then shrinking them back to down to semi-huge socks  Tongue

thanks for the help though  Smiley

"Row 1: p 13, p2tog, p1, turn"

On the heel turn you don't use all of the 22 stitches at once.  Just knit on the 16 and eventually you'll get to where you ktog the edges (decrease).  You can look back on page two at my pics if you need further help!  Don't worry, I was wondering the same thing when I first started this pattern Smiley

If your where I think you are, you should turn before you're done with the row. You know how most people won't put down their work until they've finished a row so they won't accidentally pick it up again and start knitting in the wrong direction? You're doing that on purpose. You turn before you get to the end of the row. I'm probably doing a terrible job explaining this. I'm much more of a visual teacher than a written instructions kind of a teacher.

Try the video on sock heels here.

Once you see it done, it'll be really easy from then on. I swear.
