I'll copy it below. good luck , Bobbie D.

Thanks helmer@ & Littlemy22@
I hope this is what you are looking for. This pattern was handed down to me from my grandmother.
These slippers fit size 5 to 7 ½.
3 ounces yarn (worsted weight)
size 9 knitting needle - the gauge is 4 ½ stitches per inch and the slippers are worked in garter stitch and knit one, purl one ribbing.
Cast on 32 stitches and work in garter stitch (knit every Row) for five inches.
Then work 24 rows of knit one, purl one ribbing.
On the 25th Row, knit two together all across the Row, ending with 16 stitches. Break yarn leaving a 25-inch end. Thread the yarn into a tapestry needle and pass through all of the stitches on the knitting needle.
Pull up these stitches tightly for toe, fasten yarn securely and sew together the edges of the ribbed rows. Weave the heel seam and attach a pompon (optional) on top of slipper where the ribbing started.
