Crochet info: Replace first tr on round/row with 3 ch. Finish each round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Finish each row with 1 sl st in ch from beg of previous row.

Decreasing tip:
Dec as follows at beg of row: replace 1 tr with 1 ch
Dec as follows at the end of row: Turn piece when number of tr to be dec remains and work return row.

Increasing tip: Inc by working 2 tr in 1 tr.

Foot: Crochet from toe towards the heel with crochet hook size 3.5 mm. Crochet 3 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Round 1: 8 tr in ring – see Crochet info!
Round 2: 2 tr in each tr = 16 tr.
Round 3: * 1 tr in first tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 24 tr
Round 4: * 1 tr in each of the first 2 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 32 tr.
Round 5, size 41/43 only: * 1 tr in each of the first 3 tr, 2 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* = 40 tr.
On next round inc 2-6-2 tr evenly = 34-38-42 tr. Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until piece measures 9-10-11 cm. Now work 30-34-38 tr, turn the piece (do not crochet the last 4 sts = opening mid upper foot). Continue back and forth, at the same time dec 1 tr each side on first row – see Decreasing tip = 28-32-36 tr. Work 1 tr in each tr until piece measures 14-16-19 cm. Now inc 1 tr each side on every other row a total of 3 times – see Increasing tip = 34-38-42 tr. When piece measures 22-24-27 cm fold it double and crochet slipper tog mid back with a row of sl sts through both layers. Cut the thread and fasten.

Change to 2 threads Cotton Viscose and continue as follows: 1 dc mid back in first dc, * 3 ch, 1 tr in the first ch, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
Strap: Crochet 6 ch with crochet hook size 3.5 mm and 2 threads Alpaca. Work 1 tr in the 4th ch from hook (= 2 tr) and 1 tr in each of the last 2 ch = 4 tr. Work 1 tr in each tr – remember Crochet info – until strap measures 10 cm. Cut the thread and fasten. Sew strap to slipper with 1 pearl button each side – buttons are for decoration only.

I do not understand what "inc 2-6-2 dc evenly" means. I know that the 2-6-2 is size, but what does "dc evenly" means. Round 4 ends with 32. I'm doing size 51/2. please explain how to crochet round 5 and the number of stich that I will end up with please. Thank you, Love the slippers.

Dear Ethel, you've to work round 5 only if you're working size 41/43, otherwise, you've to work next round and increase at the same time: for example for size 35/37 you've ended up round 4 with 32 tr. On the next round you've to increase 2 tr (see increasing tip) and end up with 34 tr. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas très bien la confection de la bride de boutonnage : monter une chaînette de 6 ml, 1B dans la 4ème ml à partir du crochet (=2B). Faut il en fait monter 2 B dans la 4ème ml puis 1 B dans les deux suivantes pour obtenir 4 B à la fin du 1ier rang ? Merci

DROPS Design 03.03.2014 kl. 09:46:

Bonjour Céline, on monte 6 ml, on crochète 1 B dans la 3ème ml à partir du crochet (les 2 premières ml = 1ère B), on a ainsi 2 B, 1 B dans chacune des 2 ml (pas B, faute de frappe corrigée) suivantes = on a 4 B. Bon crochet!

Très joli modèle mais j'ai modifié le modèle en faisant 5 diminutions au centre du chausson sur les 2 derniers rangs pour obtenir un talon tout rond

Hur gör man om man vill virka barnstorlekar, till exempelvis en 3-åring?

DROPS Design 01.11.2013 kl. 09:26:

Jo men vi har flera virkade tofflor till barn. Gör ett sök med "virka" och "tofflor". Lycka till!

What does "inc 2-6-2 dc evenly" mean??

DROPS Design 28.09.2013 kl. 09:49:

Dear Patrice, it means you will have to inc 2 sts in 1st size, 6 sts in 2nd size and 2 sts in last size evenly (crochet 2 sts in the same st evenly distributed on the row). Happy crocheting!

Kan man ikke få en opskrift på hæklet hjemmesko uden hæl

Vi sender dit ønske videre til Design :)

Mandie 19.01.2013 - 22:57:

I do not understand what "inc 2-6-2 dc evenly" means. Does it mean that one round you increase the 1 dc in the next 4 dc and then 2 in the next dc and then the next round is 1 dc in the next 11 dc and then 2 in the next dc? or is the 2-6-2 all in one round?

DROPS Design 20.01.2013 kl. 19:29:

Dear Mandie, this refers to the different sizes.

Jocelyne 23.12.2012 - 22:38:

Modèle très facile et rapide à crocheter. Avec la laine Alpaca, très agréable à porter. Merci

Souhila 11.11.2012 - 18:25:

Bonjour je n'ai pas compris ceci: Continuer en allers retours, en même temps, diminuer 1 B de chaque côté sur le 1er rang – voir diminutions ci-dessus = 28-32-36 B. a partir de quel rang je commence a faire les diminutions. merci

DROPS Design 12.11.2012 kl. 09:17:

Bonjour Souhila, vous avez crocheté 1 rang sur 30-34-38 B, puis vous tournez, et sur ce rang, vous diminuez 1 B de chaque côté. Bon crochet !
