MEASURING TIP:
Measure when piece is flat, it is important not to stretch the piece when measuring.
--------------------------------------------------------

LEFT SLIPPER:
Worked back and forth on needle in garter st, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 28-31-35 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand Eskimo. Insert 1 marker after 22-24-26 sts seen from RS (6-7-9 sts = toe). Then K back and forth on needle (1st row = RS), but on every 4th row (i.e. every other row from RS), turn before marker so that there are fewer rows worked on toe. NOTE: Tighten the thread a little extra when turning in the middle of row to avoid holes.
Continue like this back and forth until piece measures 8-9-10 cm / 3"-3½"-4" (measured at the widest). On the next row from RS, bind off the first 14-16-17 sts = 14-15-18 sts remain on needle. Continue as before back and forth over these sts until piece measures approx. 2-2-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-1 1/8" from where the sts where bound off (measured at the widest).
Now cast on 14-16-17 new sts at the end of next row from WS = 28-31-35 sts. Insert 1 marker after 7-8-8 sts seen from RS (pick up for leg here).
Continue back and forth as before until piece measures 8-9-10 cm / 3"-3½"-4" from where the new sts were cast on, loosely bind off.

ASSEMBLY:
Pull a thread through every edge st on the toe, tighten tog and fasten the thread. Start at the end of toe and sew the slipper tog edge to edge in outermost sts under foot to avoid a chunky seam and continue up the back of heel .

LEG:
Worked back and forth on needle. Pick up new sts for leg with 1 strand in each color Symphony on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 along the opening of slipper as follows: Beg at marker (mid in the side), pick up from RS in outermost sts approx. 30 - 40 sts around the entire opening - move the marker to beg of row from RS - pick up sts for band here.
K next row - while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 30-34-38. Continue in garter st until leg measures 20-21-22 cm / 8"-8 1/4"-8 3/4".
On next row from RS switch to needle size 6 mm / US 10 and 1 strand Eskimo - AT THE SAME TIME work rib as follows: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 2.
Continue like this until rib measures approx. 2 cm / 3/4'', bind off with K over K and P over P. Leg measures approx. 22-23-24 cm / 8 3/4"-9"-9½" vertically.

BAND:
Pick up new sts for band in the side along the leg as follows: With 1 strand Eskimo on needle size 6 mm / US 10, pick up from RS (beg at the bottom of leg from marker) approx. 30 - 40 sts in outermost sts along the entire leg edge.
On next row from WS, P while AT THE SAME TIME adjusting no of sts to 34-38-38. On next row from RS work rib as follows: 2 edge sts in garter st, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 2 and 2 edge sts in garter st.
Continue like this until rib measures approx. 2 cm / 3/4'', loosely bind off with K over K and P over P.

ASSEMBLY:
Fasten the band as follows: Place edge A (= edge where band in Eskimo was knitted) over edge B (= edge without band) - see diagram, fasten band on leg with little stitches.
Sew on 4 buttons on band through all layers.

RIGHT SLIPPER:
Cast on and work as left slipper but reversed.
