Crochet info:

Foot: Beginning with the toe, crochet in Eskimo and hook size 8 mm [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 3/8”-5 1/8”-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 ¾”-9 ¾”-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.

Edge: Crochet 1 round of sc along the entire opening of the slipper with 1 thread of Eskimo and 3 threads of Glitter (If Glitter is not used, then just crochet with 1 thread of Eskimo). Finish the round with 1 sl st in the first sc. Crochet the next round as follows: *3 ch (if using pearls, these should be pulled on to the thread before this round. The pearls are pushed up on to the 2nd ch and will be placed at the centre of the point on the border edge), 1 dc in the 1st ch, skip approx. 2 cm [3/4’’], 1 sc in the next st*. Repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in the 1st ch from beg of round.
