Crochet tension: 11 dc = 10 cm in the width.
Substitute the first dc at the beginning of round/row with 1 ch. Finish each round with 1 sl st in the ch from beg of previous round (1 sl st in the ch from beg of previous row when crocheting back and forth).
Foot: Beginning with the toe, crochet in Eskimo and hook size 8 mm as follows:
1st round: Crochet 3 ch and make a loop with a sl st in the first ch.
2nd round: Crochet 5-5-6 dc around the loop – read crochet info!
3rd round: 2 dc in each dc = 10-10-12 dc.
4th round: *1 dc in the first dc, 2 dc in the next dc*, repeat from *-* = 15-15-18 dc.
5th – 7th round: Crochet 1 dc in each dc.
8th round: *1 dc in the first dc, 1 dc in the second dc and 2 dc in the third dc*, repeat from *-* = 20-20-24 dc.
Continue to crochet 1 dc into each dc until the piece measures approx 11-13-14 cm.
Heel: Now divide the piece and crochet back and forth from the centre top of the foot – remember crochet info – 1 dc into each dc.
When the slipper measures approx 22-25-28 cm place it flat and crochet it tog at the centre back with a row of dc through both layers. Cut the thread and sew.
Leg: Crochet 1 round of dc round the opening of the slipper (beginning at the centre front). Continue round with 1 dc in each dc until the leg measures 11 cm, continue to crochet back and forth from the centre front as follows:
1st row: Turn the piece and crochet back until 1 st left (which should be left un-worked from now on).
2nd row: Turn the piece and crochet back over the sts from previous row until 1 st left (which should be left un-worked from now on) = 2 sts at the centre front.
3rd row: Turn the piece and crochet over the sts from previous row.
Cut the thread.
Continue to crochet around the edge of the leg in Puddel as follows.
1st round: 1 dc in each dc round all of the leg (incl the slit at the centre front). Finish with a sl st in the first dc.
2nd round: *3 ch, 1 dc in the following st*, repeat from *-*, and finish with a sl st in the first ch from beg of round.
Cut the thread.
Assembly: Make a pompom with a diameter of 5 cm in Puddel (please see Garnstudio’s Technique Pages on the pattern front page). Sew the pompom to the slipper at the centre front between the leg and the foot.
