Pattern for DROPS 189-29

INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 double crochet by working the next 2 double crochet together as follows: Work 1 double crochet in next single crochet but wait with last pull through, work 1 double crochet in next single crochet the same way, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first double crochet on every round/row with double crochets with 3 chain stitches and finish round with 1 slip stitch in third chain stitch.
Replace first single crochet on every round/row with single crochets with 1 chain stitches and finish round with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch.

PATTERN:
2 round/rows with single crochets,
1 round/row with double crochets.
Repeat these 3 rounds/rows.

STRIPES:
Work 3 rounds/rows (= 2 rounds/rows with single crochets and 1 round/row with double crochets) of each color.
Work stripes as follows:
* heather, apricot, shocking pink, mustard, green, petrol *, repeat from *-* until finished measurements.
------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Work from toe towards heel.

Work 5 chain stitches with petrol on hook size 4 mm / G/6 and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: Work 12 double crochets around chain stitch ring – beginning of round = mid under foot.
ROUND 2: Switch to white. Work * 1 double crochet in first double crochet, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 double crochets.
ROUND 3: Switch to petrol. Work * 1 double crochet in the first 2 double crochets, 2 double crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 double crochets.
ROUND 4: Switch to white. Work * 1 single crochet in each of the first 3 double crochets, 2 single crochets in next double crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 single crochets.
ROUND 5: Work 1 single crochet in every single crochet but increase 4-6-10 single crochets evenly = 34-36-40 single crochets.
ROUND 6: Switch to petrol. Work 1 double crochet in every single crochet.

Continue with PATTERN and STRIPES - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When piece measures approx. 10-11-13 cm, finish after 2 rounds with single crochet, cut the yarn. Insert 1 marker between the 2 middle stitches on round, i.e. after 17-18-20 single crochets. Work piece with toe towards you and count 4 stitches to the left of marker, begin working here from right side with double crochets. Work until 6 single crochets remain in total on round (i.e. 3 stitches on each side of marker mid on top of foot), turn = 28-30-34 double crochets. Continue pattern as before – work 1 slip stitch in first double crochet, then single crochets until 1 double crochet remains on row, turn. Then work back and forth over the remaining 26-28-32 stitches until piece measures approx. 21-23-26 cm in total – adjust so that next row is a row worked with double crochets. Work next row as follows: 1 double crochet in each of the first 11-12-14 single crochets, then work the next 4 double crochets together 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP, then work 1 double crochet in each of the last 11-12-14 single crochets. Fasten off. Fold the slipper double and sew tog edge to edge mid back.

EDGE:
Work an edge around the opening on slipper with mustard as follows:
ROUND 1:
1 single crochet in every single crochet mid on top of foot, 1 single crochet in transition between 2 color stripes, * 2 chain stitches, skip a color stripes, 1 single crochet in transition between the 2 next color stripes *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 slip stitch in first single crochet.
ROUND 2:
Work 1 single crochet in every single crochet and 2 single crochet around every chain space. Finish round with 1 slip stitch in first single crochet. Fasten off.

Work another slipper the same way.
