Slipper: Worked in 1 piece with seams mid back and mid front. Beg mid back (see Fig-1). Loosely cast on 72-76-80 sts on needle size 5.5 mm with 2 threads Alpaca and work stocking st. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 3 cm dec 1 st each side on every row a total of 14 times (dec by K tog the first 2 sts and the last 2 sts on row) = 44-48-52 sts. When piece measures 10.5-12.5-14.5 cm inc 1 st each side on every row a total of 12 times (inc by working 2 sts in the first and last st on row) = 68-72-76 sts. When piece measures 17-18.5-20.5 cm cast off each side on every other row as follows: 4 sts 2 times, then on every 4th row: 1 st a total of 8-9-10 times = 36-38-40 sts. Continue until piece measures 34-38-42 cm, cast off loosely.
Assembly: Fold slipper double and sew tog mid back in outer loop of sts. Sew in the same way at front over the foot. Fig-2 shows the slipper sewn tog.
Make 1 more slipper.
Crochet border: Crochet round the opening of slipper with crochet hook size 7 mm and 2 threads Puddel as follows: 1 dc, * 3 ch, skip approx 1-1.5 cm, 1 dc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round. With 2 threads Puddel sew a very loose seam, up and down, in the seam mid front. Let the Puddel threads sit in small loops on top of seam.

Felt slippers in the washing machine – see below. To ensure the best possible fit, put the slipper on while it is still wet so that it forms to your foot in the right size.

Felting: Attach a small plastic bag inside each slipper at the toes with a safety pin to avoid it felting tog. Put slippers in the washing machine with a powder free of enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 degrees without pre-wash and with normal spin. If after felting, the slippers are too big, you may felt them again. If they are too small, thoroughly wet them and pull them into the right shape and size. At subsequent washes, wash the slippers at a wool programme.
