Replace first dc on round/row with 1 ch. Replace first tr on round/row with 3 ch. Finish each round/row with 1 sl st in 1st/3rd ch from beg of round, (in 1st/3rd ch from beg of previous row when working back and forth).
PATTERN: See diagram M.1 and M.2.

Beg with the toe. Crochet with crochet hook size 4 mm and Nepal.
ROUND 1: Crochet 3 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 2: 5-5-6 dc in ring – See CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 3: 2 dc in each dc = 10-10-12 dc.
ROUND 4: *1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc*, repeat from *-* to end = 15-15-18 dc.
ROUND 5-7: 1 dc in each dc.
ROUND 8: *1 dc in first dc, 1 dc in 2nd dc and 2 dc in 3rd dc*, repeat from *-* to end = 20-20-24 dc.
ROUND 9: *1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, and 2 dc in 4th dc*, repeat from *-* to end = 25-25-30 dc.
ROUND 10: *1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, and 2 dc in 5th dc*, repeat from *-* to end = 30-30-36 dc.
Continue with 1 dc in each dc until piece measures 6-6-7 cm. Now continue in M.1 in the round. Work M.1A, then repeat M.1B and finish with 1 sl st in st from beg of round. Continue like this until piece measures approx 11-13-14 cm.

Now divide piece and continue back and forth from mid upper foot in M.2, work M.2A, then repeat M.2B and finish with M.2C. When the slipper measures approx 22-24-27 cm place it flat and crochet tog mid back with a row of dc through both layers. Cut and fasten thread.

Crochet 1 row of dc round the opening of slipper (beg mid front). When you are back at the beg work 12 ch (for flap), turn and work 1 dc in each of these ch. Now continue back and forth with 1 dc in each dc until leg measures 8 cm. Cut and fasten thread.
LEFT SLIPPER: Beg with 12 ch, then work 1 row of dc round the opening (beg mid front). When you are back at the beg turn and work 1 dc in each dc and 1 dc in each ch. Now continue back and forth with 1 dc in each dc until leg measures 8 cm. Cut and fasten thread.

Sew 2 decorative buttons through both layers on the flap.

Hi there.... if I didn't want the slippers to be that hole-y could I just continue to single crochet all the way up the foot? Are there any special steps I should follow to do that?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 17:39:

Dear Kelsey, you can continue with single crochets if you rather like to, just continue adjusting to the length/number of rows required for your size. Happy crocheting!

Susan 01.04.2018 - 23:27:

My daughter bought her wool while on holiday so there is no hope of her going back to shop in America to ask about pattern. She is new to diagram patterns having only used worded patterns before. The M1 /M2 part has got her foxed. Not very good for her.

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 08:55:

Dear Susan, you can always contact your DROPS store, even per mail or on social medias (see their profile). Whenw working diagram, each symbol is the key to one stitch/group of st. Start reading diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS. Happy crocheting!

Marlies Monster 13.10.2017 - 21:48:

Begrijp ik het goed dat je bij patroon m1a eerst 2x een tour met vaste moet haken en daarna een tour met noem maar even twee samen gestelde stokjes.

DROPS Design 04.11.2017 kl. 14:19:

Hallo Marlies, Bij telpatroon M.1 is de eerste toer (dus niet de eerste 2 toeren), een toer met vasten. (= P.s.: De eerste vaste op de toer wordt vervangen door een losse (zie 'informatie voor het haken' bovenaan het patroon), deze wordt in het telptroon aangegeven met een verticaal streepje.

Johanne Elise Reianes 10.05.2016 - 20:18:

Hei! Jeg har problemer med og forstå diagrammet, og jeg ser jeg ikke er alene. Kan dere legge ut en bedre forklaring? I diagrammet er det en stav i slutten av første runde med st sammen, det kan vel ikke være riktig, denne står alene single st? Og i andre omg med staver sammen er det en single st som kommer hver tredje sammenhekling, slik ser det ikke ut på bildet.. Der er det to og to staver sammen rundt hele...

DROPS Design 13.05.2016 kl. 12:24:

Hej Johanne. Som jeg forstaar det saa hekler du staver sammen men 1 lm mellem hver og den sidste single stav er til afslutning paa omg. (og kun der).

Salima 09.12.2015 - 09:33:

How we do drops by video please and thanks

DROPS Design 09.12.2015 kl. 10:12:

Dear Salima, the video below shows how to work the slipper - but remember to follow the pattern at the same time, video is only showing technique and construction. Happy crocheting!

Sara 26.09.2015 - 19:59:

Hej! Har tittat på det här mönstret ett tag nu och har äntligen bestämt mig för att börja virka. Mitt problem är att jag har hittat ett garn som kräver en virknål i storlek 5 mm. Om jag följer beskrivningen, hur mycket kommer resultatet påverkas??

DROPS Design 30.09.2015 kl. 11:16:

Hej För att få rätt storlek på dessa tofflor krävs denna stickfasthet: "DROPS VIRKNÅL NR 4 – eller den virknål du måste ha för att få 14 fm x 20 v på 10 x 10 cm." Gör en provlapp för att se så du får dessa mått. Lycka till!

Jessica 19.05.2015 - 03:15:

What does the 5-5-6 mean and to see crochet info? I replace the 5 with part one of crochet info? Anyone know?

DROPS Design 19.05.2015 kl. 08:29:

Dear Jessica, this pattern is written in 3 sizes. In first 2 sizes you will crochet 5 sts in ch-ring, in largest size you will crochet 6 sts in ch-ring. Depending on your size follow first, 2nd or 3rd number. Happy crocheting!

Virginia Glynn 15.12.2014 - 15:51:

Where can I go to find help with this pattern. I've try to do this pattern but confused on how to read your diagram please help I would really like to do this for my daughter. I did not buy the yarn from a yarn shop for I live in Oklahoma and the nearest yarn shop is 2 hours away so I can't go to a yarn shop to ask if you can write out the diagram for me maybe I can understand this is very confusing thank you

DROPS Design 15.12.2014 kl. 17:31:

Dear Mrs Glynn, in the diagram each st/group of sts is represented by a symbol (see under diagram text), read diagram starting at the bottom corner on the right side and work towards the left every round (M.1) - or when working in rows, read RS rows from right to the left and WS rows from left to the right. You can get our yarns here in the USA, and then contact them by mail when you need assistance with a pattern. Happy crocheting!

Karin Allikas 25.01.2014 - 21:38:

Mul on raske aru saada mustrist, et kuida pidi ma peaks hakkama heegeldama? Kas M.1 suunas võis siis M.1A ja siis sealt otse edasi M.1B ja siis jälle M.1A? Vabandan natukene selle rumala küsimuse pärast aga olen alles algaja.

DROPS Design 30.04.2014 kl. 17:11:

"Nüüd jätka skeemiga M.1 ringis. Heegelda M.1A, siis korda M.1B ja lõpeta aass-ga ringi algusse. Jätka niimoodi, kuni töö on u 11-13-14 cm kõrgune." St. M.1A tehakse ainult ringi alguses ja siis korratakse skeemi M.1B.

Cathy Milner 17.11.2013 - 20:03:

I am having a problem understanding the parts of pattern M1A, M1B, etc. Where may I find help? Thanks

DROPS Design 18.11.2013 kl. 10:08:

Dear Mrs Milner, M1A shows the beg of round (eg: ch 1 on round 1), M1B shows 1 repeat of the pattern to work around and join with 1 sl st in beg ch of round ("v" in diag). Happy crocheting!
