Worked back and forth in one piece and sewn tog underneath the foot and back on heel when finished.
The whole slipper is K on all rows (= garter st).

Cast on 46-48-50 sts on needle size 9 mm / US 13 with lime.
K 5-5-5 rows (1st row = WS) = upper edge on foot.
Insert a marker in the middle of piece (i.e. after 23-24-25 sts). K next row as follows: K until 2 sts remain before marker, make 1 YO, K 4 sts and make 1 more YO, K the rest of row.
On next row K the YOs twisted to avoid holes (i.e. work in back loop of st) – AT THE SAME TIME continue the inc with 1 YO on each side of the middle 4 sts on every row until there are 74-78-86 sts on needle.
Work 4-5-4 rows without inc.
Then dec 1 st at beg of the next 6 rows (i.e. dec a total of 3 sts in each side) = 68-72-80 sts remain on needle.
Bind off the remaining sts = under foot.
A total of 15-16-17 ridges (1 ridge = 2 rows in garter st) have been worked.
Loosely sew tog bind off edge under the foot and up mid back (sew edge to edge to avoid a thick edge).

There are 2 colors on the flowers.
A: Color 1 = yellow, color 2 = hot pink.
B: Color 1 = medium purple, color 2 = yellow.
C: Color 1 = hot pink, color 2 = medium purple.
Work 3 flowers for each slipper, one in each color combination .

Work as follows: ch 4 on hook size 8 mm / L/11 with color 1 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work 6 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round.
ROUND 2 (switch to color 2): * ch 5, 1 dc in the second of the 5 ch and 1 dc in the first of the ch 5, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times but the last time finish with 1 sl st in first leaf at beg of round instead of 1 sc in next st (= 6 leaves). Fasten off.

Place the slippers and the flowers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash warm at 40C/104F with normal spin but no pre-wash. After wash shape the slippers to the right size while still wet and leave to dry flat. At subsequent wash, wash the slippers at regular wool program.

Fasten the 3 flowers at the front on each slipper - use a sewing thread or a thin wool thread.
