SLIPPERS:
LEG:
Cast on 36-38-40 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with Eskimo. Work in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above - until piece measures approx. 4 cm / 1½'', finish after 1 round P.

FOOT:
Now keep the first 9-11-11 sts on the round on the needle, slip the remaining 27-27-29 sts on 1 stitch holder. Continue in garter st back and forth over the 9-11-11 sts - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row cast on 1 new st in each side (edge st) = 11-13-13 sts. When piece measures 7-8.5-10 cm / 2 3/4"-3 1/4"-4'', bind off 1 edge st in each side = 9-11-11 sts. Then slip the sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 12-14-16 sts on each side of middle part (inside 1 edge st) = 60-66-72 sts on needle.
Now measure piece from here. Insert 1 marker mid front of toe and 1 marker mid back on heel.
Continue in the round in garter st.
When piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'', K 2 sts tog on each side of every marker on every other round (= 4 sts less per round) continue dec until piece measures 5-5-6 cm / 2"-2"-2½" – bind off. Sew tog seam mid under foot in outermost st to avoid a chunky seam.


LOOSE LEG WORKED ACROSS:
Cast on 22 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Eskimo. Work 1 ridge in garter st, on last row inc 6 sts evenly = 28 sts. Work according to A.1 (= 28 sts) until piece measures approx. 32-33-35 cm / 12½"-13"-13 3/4", on last row dec 3 sts over every cable in A.1 = 22 sts.
Work 1 ridge in garter st and bind off. Place cast-on edge over bind-off edge and sew on 3 buttons for decoration through the leg. Pull leg 2 cm / 3/4'' down on foot with buttons on the outside of slipper and sew leg to cast-on edge on slipper from WS with invisible stitches.

Knit another slipper the same way, make sure that the leg opening is in the opposite side.
