Full step by step tutorial to knit these easy cozy slippers. Here's the full pattern to knit child's, ladies or men's size slippers. I have used the ladies size for the video.
My apologies for the spelling error in this video. Spell check changed my Purl to Pearl. For beginner knitters it is spelled Purl.

Measure out about 18" and cut wool.
Thread yarn on darning needle and pass this thread through all stitches on the needle and remove off needle as you go. Pull the stitches together. Pass the needle through the first stitch again and now pull tightly so there is no hole showing. Thread through remaining stitches again and secure wool end. Thread through a few stitches and cut yarn.
Turn inside out and use a blanket stitch to sew up toe. Sew about 1" past the ribbing of the toe and into the slipper part. Secure wool and cut.
Now sew up the heel with a whip stitch and secure wool end.
Make another slipper the same size.
Yeah! All done.
