Toe up Mountain form slippers/bed socks

I wrote about this pattern in this post
and Maria asked me for the pattern
I can't claim this as my own,  i'ts
based on a pattern  by  Wakako Sato
and just another way to make them.
It's an easy-measure-as-you-go pattern
(I have a large about size 10/40 foot)

Toe up Mountain form slippers/bed socks
10 ply wool and 4.5mm needles 9wpi
cast on 7 sts using wrap/turkish method
(14 sts in total)
continue knitting in the round using the magic loop method
1st row: knit
2nd row: *k1, increase in next stitch, knit to last stitch, increase in next stitch* for both sides of slipper.
Repeat last 2 rows 6 more times until 42 stitches (21sts each side)
knit in the round for 3.5cm (stocking stitch)
Knit 1, purl 1 rib for *6.5 to 7.5cm (*depending on size of foot)
(Knit 1, Purl 1) 5 times, cast off 1 stitch (this is the middle).
You will now be working back and forth-not in the round and turning after each row
Round 1: Knit 13, Purl 1, Knit 13, Purl 1, Knit 13.
Round 2: Knit
Repeat last two rounds until measures *8cms from Rib pattern. (*again depending on size of foot)
Fold in half wrong sides together and graft ( Kitchener stitch) together.
Kitchener Stitch
to set up 
Front row- purl on
Back row- knit on

Kitchener stitch Garter
1 Front Knit Off
2 Front Purl on
3 Back Knit off
4 Back purl on

  1. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern Jane. Will definitely be giving it ago very soon. And I learnt something new "Turkish wrap" is not just food :-)

  2. I think I could knit this pattern, thankyou for sharing..
    I like the colour and like you I too have a good grip on the ground (10)..:))

  3. You guys are too funny! I had a falafel wrap for lunch this week Maria and I don't remember hearing the "good grip on the ground" before Pat. hope you enjoy making them and feel free to give feedback

  4. Looking good! Love the colour...

    Not sure I am talented enough to attempt this pattern yet, but give me a bit of time and I will figure it out! Thank you for sharing...
