Worked in 1 piece with seams mid back and mid upper foot.
Beg to knit at the mid back – see measuring chart below.
LOOSELY cast on 76-80-86 sts on needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with 2 threads Alpaca and work stockinette st back and forth on needle.
When piece measures 6-7-7 cm / 2 3/8”-2¾”-2¾” continue to work on 16 sts only on the left of piece (seen from RS) – slip the remaining 60-64-70 sts on a stitch holder.
Now work 7 cm / 2¾’’ stockinette st on the 16 sts and then bind off.
This piece will be were you sew the buttons afterward.
Slip the sts from stitch holder back on needle and cast on 16 new sts on the left side of piece (seen from RS).
Now continue on all sts.
When piece measures 8-9-9 cm / 3 1/8”-3½”-3½” (from cast on row at the very beginning) work next row as follows from WS:
work 4 sts, bind off 9 sts, work remaining sts on row. Cast on 9 new sts over the bind off sts on return row (= buttonhole).
When piece measures 18-19.5-21.5 cm / 7”-7¾”-8½” bind off 4-4-5 sts each side, bind off in beg of following 2 rows = 68-72-76 sts.
Now bind off at the beg of every row each side: 4 sts 2 times, and then at the beg of every other row each side: 1 st 8-9-10 times = 36-38-40 sts.
Continue until piece measures 34-38-42 cm / 13 3/8”-15”-16½”, bind off loosely.

Make 1 more slipper, but mirror it, i.e. when piece measures 6-7-7 cm / 2 3/8”-2¾”-2¾” only work the first 16 sts on the right side of piece (seen from RS).

ASSEMBLY: Fold slipper and sew tog mid back in outer loops of sts. Sew tog mid upper foot at the front in the same way.

Felt slippers in washing machine – SEE BELOW. For the perfect fit, put slipper on while still wet to shape it into the right size. After felting sew on buttons to fit buttonholes.

FELTING: To avoid the slippers felting tog during wash, attach a small plastic bag inside the top before putting them in the washing machine.
Wash at 40C/104F with a detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach, with normal spin, but no pre-wash.
After wash shape the slippers while still wet, and leave to dry – see above.
If after felting the slippers are too big, wash them again, if they are too small, leave them to soak and then shape them into the right size.
At subsequent washes wash the slippers at a wool programme.
