Replace first sc at beg of every sc round with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.
Replace first sc at beg of every sc row with 1 ch. Finish row with 1 sl st in ch from beg of previous row.

After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

Work 1 sc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next sc but on last pull through, pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 sc dec.

Worked in the round from the toe and to the back to the instep, then work back and forth until mid back of heel.

Work 4 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with 1 thread Big Fabel or 2 threads Fabel and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
ROUND 1: Work 6-6-5 sc in ch-ring – READ CROCHET INFO 1!
ROUND 2: Work 2 sc in every sc = 12-12-10 sc.
ROUND 3 (and then every odd round): Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 18-18-15 sc.
ROUND 6: * 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times = 24-24-20 sc.
ROUND 8: * 1 sc in each of the first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times = 30-30-25 sc.
ROUND 10: * 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times = 36-36-30 sc. Inc in size 5/6½ (35/37) are now done. Continue below for all sizes.
ROUND 12: * 1 sc in each of the first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 6-5 times in total = 42-35 sc. Inc in size 7½/9 (38/40) are now done. Continue below for all sizes.
ROUND 14: * 1 sc in each of the first 6 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 40 sc.
ROUND 16: * 1 sc in each of the first 7 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 45 sc. Inc in size 9½/10½ (41/43) are now done.

= 36-42-45 sc on round. Work in the round with 1 sc in every sc (without finishing the rounds – READ CROCHET INFO 2) until piece measures 14-16-18 cm / 5½"-6 1/4"-7".
Then work sc back and forth over the first 24-30-32 sc (i.e. do not work over the last 12-12-13 sc on round) - remember CROCHET INFO 1!
When slipper measures 20-22-25 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9 3/4"'' (i.e. approx. 6-6-7 cm / 2½"-2½"-2 3/4" from where the piece was divided), insert 1 marker in the middle of piece (= 12-15-16 sc on each side of marker). On next row dec 1 sc on each side of marker, i.e. beg 2 sts before marker and work the next 4 sc tog 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 sc dec).
Work 1 row without dec. Repeat dec on next row (= 2 sc dec) = 20-26-28 sts remain on row.
Work 1 row without dec, place the slipper double and work tog mid back with one row sl sts through both layers (slipper now measures approx. 22-24-27 cm / 8¾”-9½”-10½” from toe to heel). Fasten off.

Beg mid back and work a finishing edge at the top around the opening of slipper as follows: 1 sc in first st, * ch 1, skip approx. ½ cm / 1/4'', 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* the entire round but finish round with 1 sl st in sc from beg of round (instead of 1 sc in next st). Fasten off.
Sew on 3 buttons for decoration mid on top of slipper - see picture.
Work another slipper the same way.
