GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

INCREASING TIP: Inc from RS with 1 YO. On next row work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole.

Worked back and forth on needle from toes towards the heel, and sewn tog mid upper foot afterwards. Cast on 10-11-13-14-15-17 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Eskimo (leave approx 50 cm / 20'' thread end, and use this to sew slipper tog afterwards). Insert a marker in st 4-4-4-5-5-5 and 1 marker in st 7-8-10-10-11-13. Work stockinette st, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st each side of the 2 markers – SEE INCREASING TIP, and repeat the inc on every other row a total of 6 times = 34-35-37-38-39-41 sts.
Continue until piece measures 13-13-14-16-18-20 cm / 5 1/8"-5 1/8"-5½"-6 1/4"-7"-8" and work next row as follows: 8-8-8-10-10-10 garter sts, 18-19-21-18-19-21 stockinette sts, 8-8-8-10-10-10 garter sts.

Sew thread through outermost sts towards toes and tighten, sew seam mid upper foot inside ½ st to where the garter st beg. Fold slipper double and sew tog mid back, edge to edge, in order to avoid a chunky seam.

Wash slippers in the washing machine with a detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40C/104F with normal spin, but without pre-wash. After wash form the slipper to the right size whilst still wet and leave to dry. At subsequent washes, wash slippers at a wool programme.
