Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Crochet the first st but wait with last YO and pull through, crochet next st and at last pull trough now pull thread through all 3 loops on hook.

Worked back and forth, top down. Work 32-34-36 loose ch on hook size 8 mm with 2 threads Symphony (1 thread brown and 1 thread light beige) or Melody (2 threads beige). Turn piece. Work 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 dc in every ch the entire row = 31-33-35 dc.
Continue to work as follows: * 2 ch, turn piece, work 1 tr in every st, 1 ch, turn piece, work 1 dc in every st *, repeat from *-* - REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION – important so that the slippers are the correct size.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10-10-10 cm, dec 2 sts on the row as follows: Work the first 2 sts tog - see explanation above - and the 2 middle sts tog = 29-31-33 sts on row.
Then continue until piece measures 19-20-21 cm.
Now work the foot in dc as follows – insert a marker in the middle st:
ROW 1: Work 1 dc in every st until st before mid st, 2 dc in next st, 1 ch (= middle st), skip next st, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of the last sts, turn piece.
ROW 2: Work 1 dc in each of the first sts until the ch, work 7 tr in the middle ch (the 4th tr of the 7 tr is now the middle st) and 1 dc in each of the last sts, turn piece.
ROW 3: Work 1 dc in each of the next sts until st before mid st, work 2 dc in next st, 1 ch (= mid st), skip next st, work 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in each of the last sts, turn piece.
ROW 4: Work 1 dc in each st until mid st, 7 tr in ch and 1 dc in each of the last sts, turn piece.
Repeat 3rd and 4th row until piece measures approx. 22 - 24 - 27 cm in length - measured when piece is folded double.
Switch to Eskimo and now measure piece from here.
* Work 1 row with dc, finish row with 1 ch and turn piece *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx. 4-4,5-5 cm - at the same time on last row, work the first 2 and the last 2 sts tog - see explanation above. Cut the thread.

Fold the slipper double, sew tog edge to edge in front loop of outermost st to avoid a chunky seam. Loosely work a row with dc at the top of leg with Eskimo.
Work a ch-row with Eskimo of approx. 150 cm, make a small pompom in each end – Tip: Before the last pompom is inserted on the ch-row, pull the ribbon through a st at the bottom of leg in the transition between Symphony / Melody to Eskimo so it is fastened tightly.
Tie this ch-row around the leg.

Grazie per la sua disponibilita'. le chiedo se all'inizio e troppo stretto con 32 maglie , come posso fare ?

Lory 07.03.2019 - 16:03:

Scusami non capisco quando spieghi 10-10-10- cm e diminuire 2 all'inizio e 2 centrali . devo fare 30 cm e poi diminuire sempre 2 all'inizio e 2 centrali ? o quando devo iniziare a farlo ? misura piede 37 . grazie aspetto risposta

DROPS Design 07.03.2019 kl. 16:16:

Buongiorno Lory. L'indicazione 10-10-10 cm è la misura riferita ad ognuna delle taglie. In questo caso è uguale per tutte e tre le taglie. Quando il suo lavoro misura 10 cm, deve lavorare insieme le prime 2 maglie e le 2 maglie centrali. Sui ferri rimangono 29 maglie. Prosegue senza ulteriori diminuzioni finchè il lavoro non misura 19 cm (per la taglia 35/37). Buon lavoro!

Er det rigtigt at der skal bruges ialt 300 gr symphony men kun 150 g melodi?

DROPS Design 21.02.2017 kl. 16:18:

Hej Majbritt. Ja, det er korrekt, for Melody löber 140 m per 50 gr og Symphony löb kun 70 m.

I made these for my daughter and was so much fun! She loves them!

Niki 27.07.2015 - 17:02:

What yarn can I use if I cannot find the Symphony on here? Maybe I missed it, but the only one I see is the Eskimo.

DROPS Design 27.07.2015 kl. 18:08:

Dear Niki, DROPS Symphony is now discontinued - click here for alternatives and yarn requirements. Your DROPS store will help you with tips & advices. Happy crocheting!

Andrea 22.02.2015 - 04:33:

I love these! I was wondering though, could you the pattern for soles please?

DROPS Design 23.02.2015 kl. 10:03:

Dear Andrea, the pattern for sole starts from the part worked in Eskimo. Happy crocheting!

MaryAnn 25.01.2015 - 00:50:

What does it mean when you saw "folded double "? Just folded like you would wear it around your leg?

DROPS Design 26.01.2015 kl. 10:06:

Dear MaryAnn, that's correct, so that you can sew tog beg/end of rows along the back of leg and on bottom of foot. Happy crocheting!

Shelly Moses 14.12.2014 - 23:51:

I've only been crocheting a few months so could you explain what 32-34-36 etc. means?

DROPS Design 15.12.2014 kl. 10:27:

Dear Mrs Moses, each number refers to the matching size, the slippers are in size 35/37, 35/40 and 41/43. If you work 1st size, you will start with 32 ch and have 31 dc at the end of 1st row, in 2nd size, you start with 34 ch and have 33 dc at the end of 1st row, and in larger size, you start with 36 ch and have 35 dc at the end of 1st row. Happy crocheting!

Shara 14.11.2014 - 22:26:

Sorry, assembly unclear. Foot done. Assembly says fold in half. When I do it is extremely pointed, even with just 5 DC. Does the toe assemble to look envelope with a square end on the end or pointed? in the us, and didn't buy garn yarn. In Missouri. So I can't ask them. Could you email?

DROPS Design 15.11.2014 kl. 09:47:

Dear Shara, after having crocheted sole (sc rows worked "straight"), you then fold last row double and sew sole together on the bottom (and along mid back). Click here to get yarn in the U.S.. Happy crocheting!

Shara 14.11.2014 - 07:31:

Followed pattern, but when finished, the toe is so pointed. Should i only do 5 instead of 7 DC? "Row 4: Work 1 sc in each st until mid st, 7 dc in ch and 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

DROPS Design 14.11.2014 kl. 14:40:

Dear Shara, you are welcome to adjust your work following your own wishes, remember you can get tips & advices from your DROPS store. Happy knitting!
