ROUND 2: Crochet 4-4-5-5 (5-5-6) dc in ring – See CROCHET INFO!

Continue with 1 dc in each dc.
When piece measures 5-5-6-7 (7-8-10) cm change to tan and continue until piece measures 7-8-9-10 (10-12-14) cm.

Change to red, AT THE SAME TIME divide piece and crochet back and forth from mid upper foot – remember CROCHET INFO!
When slipper measures 15-17-19-21 (23-25-28) cm place it flat and crochet tog mid back with a row of sl sts through both layers. Cut and fasten thread.

Crochet 1 round dc with red round the opening (beg mid front) = approx 22-26-28-30 (26-28-30) dc. Continue in the round with 1 dc in each dc until leg measures approx 3-3-4-4 (5-5-6) cm. Now continue back and forth on only half the sts - i.e. from mid front to mid back - crochet dc, AT THE SAME TIME dec to create a point as follows: * turn with 1 ch, skip first dc and crochet 1 dc in each dc until 1 dc remain *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, cut and fasten thread.

Make a small off-white pompom with a diameter of approx 2-2-2-2 (3-3-3) cm and attach to the top of the point on leg (= top of Santa’s hat). Fold leg down towards RS. Make another pompom in red and sew it to mid upper foot in the transition between off-white and tan = Santa’s nose.
Embroider eyes on each side of the nose with black.

Crochet the other slipper in the same way, but when making Santa’s hat crochet on the opposite side of slipper.

Bonjour Avez-vous une adresse de mercerie qui vendrait vos laines DROPS au Luxembourg où j'habite ? Cordialement. Mara

DROPS Design 08.12.2015 kl. 17:27:

Bonjour Mme Abete, il n'y a pas encore de revendeur DROPS au Luxembourg, vous pouvez commander dans une des boutiques en ligne en France ou en Belgique. Bon crochet!

Thank you so much on your help with the heel, it turned to be a very simple pattern that goes very fast!

DROPS Design 05.11.2015 - 14:05:

There is now a new video showing how to work this kind of slippers - but remember to follow the written pattern at the same time (for number of sts, increase, etc..). Happy crocheting!

Virginia 02.11.2015 - 00:02:

I am so disappointed in this pattern! I have read all this stuff and still have no idea how to do the heel. Beyond aggravated! It would have been so much easier for us trying to follow the pattern if you would have put the directions in there! I'm about to give up and would hesitate buying one of your patterns afraid it wouldn't be any clearer then this is.

DROPS Design 02.11.2015 kl. 10:13:

Dear Virginia, sorry you get worries about the pattern, slippers are worked from the toe, first in the round, then back and forth for the opening of leg. When you have reach length for slipper, crochet tog the last row with a sl st row - see also video below. Remember your DROPS store will always help you with tips and advices when required. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour, pour l'échantillon, il est écrit 14ms pour 10 cm de largeur, mais combien de rang en ms faut il faire ? Merci

DROPS Design 13.10.2015 kl. 09:33:

Bonjour Maggy, pour avoir la bonne taille, le plus important est le nbe de ms en largeur, la hauteur sera ajustée en cm (pas en nbe de rangs). Bon crochet!

Carmen 08.10.2015 - 13:28:

Estoy realizando estas pantuflas y veo que la estimación de ovillos de color rojo para realizar un par no se ajusta a lo que indica el patrón. Con 50gr no me alcanza más que para un pie. La talla que estoy realizando es la de 28/31. Tanto si lo hago con aguja de 7 como con una menor me falta material. Podríais revisar el patrón? Yo creo que necesito algo más de 100gr para un par de esa talla

DROPS Design 10.10.2015 kl. 11:33:

Hola Carmen. La cantidad de la lana en este modelo está ajustada. Hay que tener en cuenta la tensión recomendada en el patrón, es decir, si trabajas más prieto vas a necesitar más lana. Con 100 gr yo he tejido la talla grande. Ten en cuenta también que los pompones son pequeños.

Anna 14.03.2015 - 17:08:

J'ai réalisé ces chaussons que j'ai offert à ma fille pour Noël, effet garanti, un vrai succès !

Helen Andersson 02.01.2015 - 17:48:

Hej! Undrar när man kommit till det röda garnet. Förstår inte hur man delar och hur man får ihop häl och skaft. Tacksam för svar. Med vänlig hälsning Helen

DROPS Design 04.02.2015 kl. 16:00:

Hej Helen, efter kamel fortsätter du längs med resten av foten bakåt mot hälen med rött. Sy ihop bak i hälen. Sedan virkar du skaftet i det röda runt om toffelns öppning. Lycka till!

Virginie 14.11.2014 - 16:59:

Bjr, Pourquoi doit on diviser l'ouvrage en deux si c'est pour le refermer ensuite avec des mailles coulees, et comme le dit Plet pourquoi au milieu dessus pied , est ce une erreur ? ce n'est pas tres clair, pouvez vous m'expliquer svp merci

DROPS Design 15.11.2014 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Virginie, quand on change pour le fil rouge, on n'arrête de crocheter en rond et on continue en allers et retours pour créer l'ouverture pour y passer le pied. Quand la longueur totale du chausson est atteinte, on plie le dernier rang rouge en double et on assemble en mc au dos du talon. Bon crochet!

Karin 06.11.2014 - 13:27:

Ich musste ein bisschen mit der Grösse probieren aber ansonsten sind sie toll geworden ...um sie ein bisschen stabiler zu machen habe ich Einlegesohlen eingelegt.
