This is the original site this pattern could be found at, HOWEVER, it is closed down now, so I'm sharing from my printed copy...
These slippers fit my feet with sock on and I wear a size 9. (Read not at bottom of page) If you wear a different size (as I JMSQ do) you will need to either decrease or increase the number of rows on round 4-17. These slippers are very warm and the ribbing at the top keeps your ankles warm too. Enjoy.
FPDC = means Fron Post Double Crochet
BPDC = means Back Post Double Crochet

Round 1: ch 2, work 11 hdc in ring, (12) join with a sl st to top of ch 2, NOTE: Beginning ch 2 counts as first hdc here and throughout

Row 31-32: ch 3, Repeat row 30
Fasten off, leaving a length of yarn long enought to sew up back of slipper.
NOTE: add a couple extra rows of ribbing for higher ribs around your ankle for warmth
NOTE:I use a H hook for the men in our home & I use a G hook for the ladies in our home. Also I work 4 rows less of row 17 for one of the ladies in our home
