SLIPPER:
Worked back and forth in one piece and sewn tog mid under foot when finished.
The whole slipper is worked in garter st (= K all rows).
Cast on 28-32-36-40-42 sts on needle size 9 mm / US 13 with lime. K 3-4-5-6-6 rows. Insert a marker in middle of row. Work next row as follows: K until 1-1-1-2-2 sts remain before marker, make 1 YO, K 2-2-2-4-4 sts and make 1 more YO, K the rest of row.
On next row K the YOs twisted to avoid holes (i.e. work in back loop of st) – continue the inc with 1 YO on each side of the middle 2-2-2-4-4 sts on every row until there are 50-56-62-68-74 sts on needle.
Switch to olive. Work 4 rows without inc. Then dec 1 st at the beg of the next 4-4-4-6-6 rows (i.e. dec a total of 2-2-2-3-3 sts in each side) = 46-52-58-62-68 sts remain on needle. A total of 22-24-26-30-32 rows have been worked (= 11-12-13-15-16 ridges (1 ridge = 2 rows in garter st). Bind off the remaining sts.
Loosely sew tog edge to edge under foot and mid back (avoid a thick edge).

EYES:
Cast on 2 sts with olive on needle size 9 mm / US 13.
Row 1: K 2 sts in each st = 4 sts.
Row 2: P all sts.
Row 3: K 2 sts in each st = 8 sts.
Row 4-6: Work in stockinette st without inc.
Row 7: K2 tog across = 4 sts.
Row 8: P all sts.
Row 9: K2 tog across = 2 sts.
Cut the yarn and leave approx. 20 cm / 8'', pull it through the remaining sts.
A circle has now been worked, baste the thread around the circle and tighten tog.
Work another eye and sew them on top of the slipper.

FELTING:
Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at warm 40C/104F with normal spin but no pre-wash. After wash shape the slippers to the right size while still wet and leave to dry flat. At subsequent wash, wash the slippers at regular wool program.

FACE:
Sew on a red mouth, 2 black stitches for nostrils and sew white and black on the eyes as on picture.
