When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle. Hold the yarn end with left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold loop with left thumb and index finger. *stick hook through loop, pick up the yarn from the skein, pull yarn back through loop, make a yo around hook and pull yo through st on hook = 1 sc*, repeat *-* until there are 5-6-8 sc around loop, finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull the tail to close the loop and the hole will be gone.
Replace first sc from beg of row with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round. I.e. when piece is worked in the round you work alternating from RS and WS and fasten with 1 sl st in 1st ch on the round.
Slipper is worked on hook size 10 mm / N/15 with 1 strand Polaris. Beg working from the toe. First work in the round – read CROCHET INFO above, and then continue back and forth.
Make a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above.
ROUND 1 (WS): Turn piece, work sc and inc 4 sc evenly = 9-10-12 sc - see CROCHET INFO above.
ROUND 2 (RS): Turn piece and work 1 sc in each sc.
ROUND 3 (WS): Turn piece, work sc and inc 4 sc evenly = 13-14-16 sc.
Work 5-5-7 rounds with 1 sc in every sc (last row is worked from RS).
Now work back and forth over the first 10-11-13 sc. Work 10-12-14 rows with sc back and forth. Slipper measures approx. 22-24-26 cm / 8¾”-9½”-10¼” in total. Work tog mid back with 1 row sl sts through both layers.
Then work around the entire slipper as follows: 1 sc in every row and 1 sc in every sc mid on top of foot.
Crochet another slipper.
