Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We are now open for accepting orders on a first come/first serve basis.  Please allow more time for filling custom orders.  I am entering into a closer retirement time.   Thanks for your patience.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 50 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2020, I will be entering my 2nd phase of retirement.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer.  I will no longer be accepting custom orders for the Winona Camo garments: jackets, pants, vests, hoodies, ect. As I have time I will knit some of these Camo garments and put up on the web site. These would be a 'one order item of a certain size and colorway.  I will keep some of  the Winona Camo hat category, the Native American, and Yarn, Kits and Patterns categories. I will be updating the online store to reflect these changes and look forward to hearing from you in the coming years.
Have a Great Day, Sharon

3 Generation Slipper Pattern ~ Hand Knitting Version by Sharon Nani
SKU: pksliphand

The treasured "Three Generation Slipper" knitting pattern is finally being shared with you! Perhaps it will inspire many new knitters in the creative hobby of hand knitting. But if you just enjoy machine knitting, we didn't leave you out either --- check out the identical pattern written as the 'machine knit version' also available in our online store.

This is a 'beginner level hand knit pattern' using stockinette stitches. It uses a simple slip stitch method to create the shaped heel and toe with only two knitting needles. It uses US needle size 9, so they are fast too make and only take 1-3 ounces of yarn dependant upon the size you choose to knit.

Tips are included for several yarn choices to pick from: worsted weight yarns, acrylic / nylon blends, or cotton. Interchangable yarns that will result in approximately the Stitch and Row Gauge required for this slipper pattern. Then you have the choice of following a knitting diagram template, a knitting chart for the seven slipper sizes, and detailed step by step instructions for the knitting procedures.

The Three Generation Slipper has been a favorite Bread & Butter Basic knit item since the 1970's. The form shaped heel and toe allow for a great fit. The fiber mixture of 60% acrylic and 40% nylon give it the strength needed for longer wear and easy care. The versatility of sizes baby through extra large meet the needs of all.

Over three generations of knitting this slipper, the fit of approximate 'shoe sizes' were determined. Of course 'width' of foot will become a personal matter for you in determining your size. These sizes were based on an average width. A sizing tip is included on how to adjust for different foot lengths as desired.

  • Instructions are for Hand Knit Version of the Three Generation Slipper
  • Once you learn the basic 'foot body', all kinds of variations can be knit by simply changing the cuff part of the slipper
