CROCHET 2 STS TOG:
Crochet the first st but wait with last YO and pull through, crochet next st and at last pull trough now pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

CUFF
Worked sideways.
With 1 strand dark gray Eskimo ch 13 loosely. Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in every ch the entire row = 12 sc. Work back and forth with sc in the back loops of the sts for 10½-11-11½ inches. Fasten off.

SLIPPER:
Worked top down, back and forth with the opening in the back of leg.
With 1 strand ligh gray Eskimo and 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé held together work 31-33-35 sc evenly along one side of cuff.
Continue to work as follows: * ch 2, turn piece, work 1 dc in every st on row, ch 1, turn piece, work 1 sc in every st on row *, repeat from *-*. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures a total of 6 inches dec 2 sts on next row as follows: Work the first 2 sts tog - see explanation above - and at mid front work 2 sts tog = 29-31-33 sts on row.
Continue as before until piece measures 10-11-12 inches.

Now work the foot as follows – insert a marker in the middle st on row:

ROW 1: Work 1 sc in every st until st before mid st, 2 sc in next st, 1 ch (= middle st), skip next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 2: Work 1 sc in each of the first sts until the ch, work 7 dc in the middle ch (the 4th dc of the 7 dc is now the middle st) and 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 3: Work 1 sc in each of the next sts until st before mid st, work 2 sc in next st, 1 ch (= mid st), skip next st, work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 4: Work 1 sc in each st until mid st, 7 dc in ch and 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

Repeat 3rd and 4th row until piece measures approx. 9"-10"-11" measured in foot length - measure the piece is folded double.
Switch to 1 strand dark gray Eskimo and now measure piece from here.
* Work 1 row with sc, finish row with 1 ch and turn piece *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx. 1½-1 3/4-2 inches. Work one more row where you work the first 2 and the last 2 sts tog. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the boot double, sew tog under foot and up along back of leg leg. Sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

POM-POM TIES
Work a ch-row with dark gray Eskimo of approx. 60''. Make small pompoms to fasten in each end – Tip: Before the second pompom is attached to the ch-row, pull the tie through a st at the bottom of leg in the back, in the transition between light gray and dark gray Eskimo, so it is fastened. Tie around the leg.
