Replace first dc at beg of round/row with 1 ch. Finish each round/row with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round/from beg of previous row.

Beg by the toes and crochet with off-white and crochet hook size 7 (8) mm.
ROUND 1: Crochet 3 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 2: Crochet 4-4-5-5 (5-5-6) dc in ring – See CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 3: 2 dc in each dc = 8-8-10-10 (10-10-12) dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 12-12-15-15 (15-15-18) dc.
ROUND 5-6: 1 dc in each dc.
ROUND 7 (only applies to size 35/37, 38/40 and 42/44): 1 dc in each dc.
ROUND 7-8: * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 16-16-20-20 (20-20-24) 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.
