Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Crochet gauge: 11 sc = 10 cm [4’’] in the width.

Crochet info:
Substitute the first sc at the beginning of round/row with 1 ch. Finish each round with 1 sl st in the ch from beg of previous round (1 sl st in the ch from beg of previous row when crocheting back and forth).

Foot: Beginning with the toe, crochet in Eskimo and hook size 8 mm [US L/11] as follows:
1st round: Crochet 3 ch and make a loop with a sl st in the first ch.
2nd round: Crochet 5-5-6 sc around the loop – read crochet info!
3rd round: 2 sc in each sc = 10-10-12 sc.
4th round: *1 sc in the first sc, 2 sc in the next sc*, repeat from *-* = 15-15-18 sc.
5th – 7th round: Crochet 1 sc in each sc.
8th round: *1 sc in the first sc, 1 sc in the second sc and 2 sc in the third sc*, repeat from *-* = 20-20-24 sc.
Continue to crochet 1 sc into each sc until the piece measures approx 11-13-14 cm [4,4’’- 5,1’’- 5½’’].

Heel: Now divide the piece and crochet back and forth from the centre top of the foot – remember crochet info – 1 sc into each sc.
When the slipper measures approx 22-25-28 cm [8,75’’- 9,75’’- 11’’] place it flat and crochet it tog at the centre back with a row of sc through both layers.
Cut the thread and sew.

Leg: Crochet 1 round of sc round the opening of the slipper (beginning at the centre front). Continue around with 1 sc in each sc until the leg measures 11 cm [4,4’’], continue to crochet back and forth from the centre front as follows:
1st row: Turn the piece and crochet back until 1 sc left (which should be left un-worked from now on).
2nd row: Turn the piece and crochet back over the sts from previous row until 1 sc left (which should be left un-worked from now on) = 2 sts at the centre front.
3rd row: Turn the piece and crochet over the sts from previous row.
Cut the thread.
Continue to crochet around the edge of the leg in Puddel as follows.
1st round: 1 sc in each sc around all of the leg (incl the slit at the centre front). Finish with a sl st in the first sc.
2nd round: *3 ch, 1 sc in the following sc*, repeat from *-*, and finish with a sl st in the first ch from beg of round.
Cut the thread.

Assembly: Make a pompom with a diameter of 5 cm [2’’] in Puddel (please see Garnstudio’s School of Handicraft on the pattern front page). Sew the pompom to the slipper at the centre front between the leg and the foot.

Jag har provat både och men får de ändå inte att stämma. Gjorde lösare efter första gången då de blev trångt.

Kajsa Claesson 10.11.2016 - 16:15:

Hej ! Hela toffeln blir alldeles för smal får inte på den på foten. Vad gör jag för fel? /Kajsa

Hej Kajsa. Haekler du for stramt (stemmer din haeklefasthed)?

Eva Lundberg 11.02.2016 - 15:40:

Jag förstår inte då jag läser mönstret, hur mitt uppe på foten kan vara en beskrivning på hälen, jag vill gärna virka denna toffel.

DROPS Crocheting Tutorial: How to work a slipper from the toe, heel and leg. from Garnstudio Drops design on Vimeo.

Cheryl 03.11.2015 - 21:16:

I still do not understand what it means to divide the piece and crochet back and forth

DROPS Design 04.11.2015 kl. 09:11:

Dear Cheryl, when you have worked in the round until you have reached the stated measurement for your size, do not work in the round anymore, but work in rows, ie at the end of next row, do not join with a sl st at the beg of row, but turn and work next row from WS. At the end of next row, turn and work next row from RS. Continue like this working alternately from RS and WS, this will create the opening for leg. When you have reached the final measurement for slipper, fold last row double and crochet tog 1 row in both layers (mid back on heel). Happy crocheting!

April Cox 04.09.2015 - 05:01:

I prefer a tighter pattern so there are not holes. Can I just use sc instead of double and still have it look nice? Any other suggestions. I want to keep feet toasty warm!

DROPS Design 04.09.2015 kl. 10:13:

Dear Mrs Cox, this pattern is worked with dc (UK-English) = sc (US-English), click here for the pattern written in US-English or change language clicking on the arrow "change language" below picture. Happy crocheting!

Caroline 17.05.2015 - 21:55:

Hello, I'm considering this pattern as a starter crochet project, reading through the pattern I understand it until it says 'Heel: Now divide the piece and crochet back and forth from the centre top of the foot' how is it divided? do you do one side at a time from the centre front = 1 dc into 10 dc, then join the heel. Thank you.

DROPS Design 18.05.2015 kl. 10:32:

Dear Caroline, after you have worked foot in the round, you continue back and forth from the middle on top of foot, working 1 dc in each dc. When the slipper has reached the correct measurement, fold piece double with opening (for leg) at the top and crochet 1 row dc in both layers (see video below). Happy crocheting!

Deemah 22.10.2014 - 08:39:

Sorry but I didn't understand this part and there is no video for it ..the of the heel!

DROPS Design 22.10.2014 kl. 10:12:

Dear Deemah, the video below shows how to fold the piece in double and crochet together through both layers to "close" heel. Happy crocheting!

Deemah 18.10.2014 - 14:34:

Hello it's a nice pattern but would you do a video for it please because so many things I didn't understand it please do a video it good when we see some one works !?

DROPS Design 20.10.2014 kl. 10:00:

Dear Deemah, you will find several relevant videos to this pattern on the right side of the picture under tab "video". You start on the toe working in the round, then continue back and forth (for the opening of leg), then crochet tog the mid back. Finish then crocheting in the round around the opening of leg for the cuff. Happy crocheting!
