CROCHET INFO-1 (when working in the round):
Each round starts with 1 chain stitch which replaces the first double crochet and each round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

CROCHET INFO-2 (when working back and forth):
Each row starts with 1 chain stitch, the chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet.

COLOUR CHANGE:
To get a neat transition when changing colours, work the last double crochet before the colour change as follows: Insert the hook into the last stitch, pick up the strand, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through all the loops on the hook. Continue with the new colour.

2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER:
* Insert the hook in to the next stitch, pick up the strand *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a yarn over and pull the yarn over through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
The piece is started by working in the round from the sole, bottom up. Then it is worked back and forth.

SOLE:
ROUND1: Work a row of 21-25-29 chain stitches (including 1 chain stitch to turn with) with hook size 4 mm and sea blue.
Work 4 double crochets in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, insert the first marker in the middle of these 4 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 18-22-26 chain stitches, work 4 double crochets in the last chain stitch, insert the second marker in the middle of these 4 double crochets, continue working around on the other side of the chain-stitch row, work 1 double crochet in each of the 18-22-26 stitches, finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet = 44-52-60 double crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO-1. Work * 1 double crochet in each stitch until there is 1 stitch left before the marker, work 2 double crochets in each of the next 2 stitches (the marker will continue to sit between these stitches) *, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times, work 1 double crochet in each stitch the rest of the round = 4 double crochets increased.
ROUND 3: Work as for round 2 = 52-60-68 double crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 double crochet in each stitch until there are 4 stitches left before the marker, 2 double crochets in the next stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 double crochets in each of the next 2 stitches (the marker sits in the middle of these stitches), 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 double crochets in the next stitch *, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times, work 1 double crochet in each double crochet the rest of the round = 8 double crochets increased.
ROUND 5 AND ONWARDS: Work as for round 4, 2-2-1 times then work as for round 2, 1-1-3 times = 80-88-96 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.
Use only the first marker from here. NOTE: If the marker has moved, it must be adjusted so that it sits mid front of the toe.

EDGE OF SOLE:
Start the next round in the middle of the one side, in other words, start in the 21st-23rd-25th double crochet before the marker. Work towards the toe with off white as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 1 double crochet in the back loop of each double crochet.
ROUNDS 2-3: Now work normal double crochets through both loops - work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROUND 4: Now work a half stripe at the end of the round on the heel as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 40-44-48 double crochets, change to sea blue – READ COLOUR CHANGE and work 1 double crochet in each of the last 40-44-48 double crochets.
ROUNDS 5-6: Change to off white. Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet = 80-88-96 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the piece to one side.

TOP OF TOE – SEMI-CIRCLE:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 4 mm and off white and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue working back and forth - READ CROCHET INFO-2!
ROW 1: Work 6 double crochets around the ring.
ROW 2: Work 2 double crochets in each double crochet = 12-12-12 double crochets.
ROW 3: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROW 4: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 2 stitches, * 2 double crochets in the next stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, work 2 double crochets in the last stitch = 16-16-16 double crochets.
ROW 5: Work 1 double crochet in the first double crochet, * 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 double crochets *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, work 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the last 2 stitches = 20-20-20 double crochets.
ROW 6: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 2 double crochets, * 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, work 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, work 1 double crochet in each of the last 2 stitches = 24-24-24 double crochets – do not cut the strand! Sizes 35/37 and 38/40 are continued from ALL SIZES.

SIZES 41/43:
ROW 7: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 3 double crochets, * 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 5 double crochets *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times, work 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, work 1 double crochet in each of the last 2 stitches = 28 double crochets – do not cut the strand!

ALL SIZES:
Work another row across, starting from the right side, i.e. around each row (= 6-6-7 rows on each side of the chain-stitch ring). Work back and forth as follows:
ROW 1: Skip the first row, work 1 double crochet around each of the next 5-5-6 rows, work 1 half treble crochet around the chain-stitch ring, work 1 double crochet around each of the next 5-5-6 rows, skip the last row, finish with 1 slip stitch in the start of the previous row = 11-11-13 stitches.
ROWS 2-5: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
Change to sea blue – the next round for assembly starts here – from the right side!

ASSEMBLY (the edge of the sole and the semi-circle):
Lay the semi-circle on top of the edge of the sole, the middle of the semi-circle (= 12-12-14 double crochets on each side) should meet the marker mid front of the edge. Work 1 round with sea blue in the round as follows: Remember CROCHET INFO-1! Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet/around every row through both layers = 80-88-96 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the piece to one side.

BAND:
Work a small band which will later be worked together with the last row of the side piece. Work back and forth with off white as follows:
ROW 1: Work 5 chain stitches, turn and work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches = 4 double crochets.
ROWS 2-11: Remember CROCHET INFO-2! Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the band to one side.

SIDES/BACK PIECE:
Work a side piece back and forth from the last round on the edge. You no longer work over the 24-24-28 double crochets mid front.
ROW 1 (= right side): Work with aqua blue. Work 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 56-64-68 double crochets.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Work 2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER – see description above, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there are 2 double crochets left on the row, work 2 double crochets together (= 2 double crochets decreased).
ROW 3: Work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 21-25-27 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 21-25-27 double crochets, finish with 2 double crochets together (= 4 double crochets decreased) = 50-58-62 double crochets.
ROW 4: Repeat row 2 = 48-56-60 double crochets.
ROW 5: Work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 18-22-24 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 18-22-24 double crochets, finish with 2 double crochets together (= 4 double crochets decreased) = 44-52-56 double crochets.
Continue by repeating row 2, 7-9-9 more times = 30-34-38 double crochets on the last row.
Then work 6-6-6 rows with 1 double crochet in each double crochet = a total of 18-20-20 rows.
The last row is worked together with the band from the right side as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 13-15-17 double crochets, fold the band in 2 and work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets through all 3 layers, then work 1 double crochet in each of the last 13-15-17 double crochets. Do not cut the strand!

FRONT EDGE FOR SHOE LACES:
Work 1 edge down the rows which were decreased as follows: Work * 2 chain stitches, skip 1 row, work 1 double crochet around the next row *, repeat from *-* along the whole of the slanted edge, finish with 1 slip stitch in the last row = 9-10-10 chain-spaces. Cut and fasten the strand. Work 1 edge on the other side in the same way, but in reverse, i.e. start at the bottom with 1 slip stitch in the first row, finish with 1 slip stitch in the top.

FLAP:
Work a flap, continuing back and forth in the 11-11-13 double crochets which were worked across on top of the semi-circle. Work with aqua blue.
ROW 1: Remember CROCHET INFO-2! Work 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 9-9-11 stitches, work 2 double crochets in the last double crochet = 13-13-15 double crochets.
ROW 2: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
Repeat row 2, 17-19-19 more times, then work as follows: * Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet, turn and work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there are 2 double crochets left, work 2 double crochets together (= 2 double crochets decreased) *, repeat from *-* a total of 3-3-4 times = 7-7-7 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

DECORATION:
Work 3 chain stitches with off white and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
ROUND 1: Work 3 chain stitches (= 1 treble crochet), work 11 treble crochets around the ring, finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch, change to sea blue.
ROUND 2: Remember CROCHET INFO-1. Work 2 double crochets in each treble crochet = 24 double crochets.
Sew the decoration with small, neat stitches, to the middle of one side of the side piece.

CORD:
Work a twisted cord as follows: Cut 2 strands off white of 4 metres. Twist them together until they resist, fold them double and they will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end. Thread the cord through the row of chain stitches (every other chain-space) in the same way as you thread a shoe lace.

Work 1 more slipper in the same way, but sew the decoration on the opposite side of the side piece.
