Hi - I'm sending you my never-fail makes-up-quick pattern for knitted "dorm boots" - cuffed slippers with a knitted sole.  Enjoy!  Barbara in California

Knitted Dorm Boots SIZES:  Childs size - use US #5 needles
              Woman's size (or small man) - use US #7 needles
               Mans size - use US #8 or #9 needles

MATERIALS:  2 - 3 oz. knitting worsted (4-ply yarn)

Cast on:  76 stitches (for child), (86 for woman or small man), (96 for large man).
If desired, you can use a double strand of yarn for thicker sole.

SOLE:  Knit 14 rows:  makes 7 ridges.  (for a very broad adult foot, knit 16 rows)

NEXT ROW:  If you are using a double strand for the sole, drop one strand now.  Knit 35 (40 - 45) stitches, K 2 tog., Purl 2, Slip 1, K 1, PSSO, Knit remaining 35 (40 - 45) stitches.

NEXT ROW:  Purl 34 (39 - 44) stitches, Purl 2 tog., Knit the next 2 stitches by knitting in the back of the stitch rather than the front, Purl 2 together, Purl the remaining 34 (39 - 44) stitches.

[what you are doing is, you are shaping the sides of the slipper, and there will be a Row of contrasting stitches right up the front of the foot, over the arch, to the ankle (the 2 central purl stitches in the K Row and the 2 central K stitches in the P Row)]

Repeat these two rows, Knitting or Purling one less each time and continuing to decrease on either side of the center contrast Row, until you have a total of 40 stitches remaining.

CUFF:  Knit 6 or 7 rows to form a cuff of about 3 ridges.  Bind off loosely, leaving long tail.  Sew down the back of the heel and down the sole to the toe.
  The sole and cuff can be knit of a different color, if you wish.  This pattern uses up odds andends of yarn very nicely.
