HELP need pattern for classic old knit slippers
the pattern I'm looking for is an old classic. what I remember is:
row 1 K
row 2 P (until about 1/3 across row <K1> P a bit more <K1> P to end of row
repeat these 2 rows to certain length

Shape toe
all rows K with decreasing at certain points.

I've tried to figure it out but for the life of me can't get the sizing down. HELP if you can.
and thanks in advance.

Unfortunately that is a little vague. There are thousands of patterns. Here's some links to older style or grandma's knit slippers. Maybe one of them is it?

Here's a pattern similar to Jan's, but it uses larger needles.
