Crochet tension: 11 dc = 10 cm in the width.

Crochet info:
Substitute the first dc 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).

Lobster sts: 1 row of lobster sts are the same as a row of dc but the row is crochet backwards, which means the crochet is done from the left towards the right.

Foot: Beginning with the toe, crochet in Eskimo and hook size 8 mm 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 dc around the loop – read crochet info!
3rd round: 2 dc in each dc = 10-10-12 dc.
4th round: *1 dc in the first dc, 2 dc in the next dc*, repeat from *-* = 15-15-18 dc.
5th – 7th round: Crochet 1 dc in each dc.
8th round: *1 dc in the first dc, 1 dc in the second dc and 2 dc in the third dc*, repeat from *-* = 20-20-24 dc.
Continue to crochet 1 dc into each dc until the piece measures approx 11-13-14 cm.

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

Leg: Crochet 1 round of dc round the opening of the slipper. Continue round with 1 dc in each dc until the piece measures 9 cm. Now crochet 1 round with lobster sts – see explanation above- before cutting the threads.
