RIGHT SLIPPER:
Worked back and forth in one piece and sewn tog mid back and mid on top of foot when finished.
If you want slippers with stripes, work 2 rows gray and 2 rows light gray alternately.

Cast on 58-60-62-66-70 sts on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with denim blue or gray. Insert a marker in middle of sts on the row. K 1 row. Work next row as follows: * K until 1 st remains before marker, make 1 YO, K 2 sts and make 1 more YO, K the rest of row. P next row with 2 K sts in each side - P YOs twisted to avoid holes (i.e. work in back loop of st) *. Repeat from *-* 1 more time = 62-64-66-70-74 sts. Continue in stockinette st but K the first and last 2 sts in each side on every row. When piece measures approx. 12-13-14-15-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½"-6"-6" (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), K the first 9 sts before slipping them on a stitch holder (for button strap), then bind off the next 2-2-2-3-3 sts, work the rest of row. Turn piece and bind off the first 11-11-11-12-12 sts = 40-42-44-46-50 sts remain on needle. Continue in stockinette st until finished measurements – AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st at the beg of every row 3 times in each side = 34-36-38-40-44 sts. When piece measures 24-27-29-31-34 cm / 9½"-10 1/4"-11 3/8"-12 1/4"-13 3/8" in total, K2 tog across. Work 1 row without dec, then K2 tog across again = 9-9-10-10-11 sts remain. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts and tighten tog.

BUTTON STRAP:
Slip the 9 sts from stitch holder back on needle size 5 mm / US 8.
K back and forth (= garter st) until strap measures 11-12-13-14-15 cm / 4½"-4 3/4"-5"-5½"-6"- (on slipper with stripes work the whole button strap in gray). Now bind off the middle 3 sts for button hole. On next row cast on 3 new sts over the bound off sts. Then dec at the end of every row by K 2 last sts on row tog until only 3 sts remain on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

LEFT SLIPPER:
Work as right slipper until piece measures 12-13-14-15-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5 1/8"-5½"-6"-6". Work next row as follows: bind off the first 11-11-11-12-12 sts, work the rest of row. Turn, work the first 9 sts and then slip them on a stitch holder, bind off the next 2-2-2-3-3 sts = 40-42-44-46-50 sts remain on needle. Continue as on right slipper.

EARS:
Cast on 6-6-7-7-8 sts on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with denim blue or gray. K back and forth - AT THE SAME TIME on second row, K the last 2 sts tog. Repeat dec at the end of every other row until all sts have been dec (i.e dec only in one side). Work 2 ears for each slipper.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the slipper double and sew tog mid back and mid on top on foot – sew edge to edge in front loop of outermost st to avoid a chunky seam. Sew ears on top of foot – fasten in the side on ears where sts were dec.

FELTING:
Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at warm at 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 and black eyes, nose and antennas as on picture.

BUTTON:
Sew on 1 button on each slipper so that they fit the button holes. Try the slipper on to ensure the correct width around the ankle.

Hei! Jeg har strikket str. 20/22, gråstripet. Det står at man trenger 50 gr. av hver farge, men jeg fikk for lite av den grå. Mvh. Oddlaug

Bonjour Quel laine je pourrais remplacer si je ne veux pas feutrer? Merci! Lucie

DROPS Design 20.02.2015 kl. 09:28:

Bonjour Lucie, les explications des chaussons feutrés sont adaptés en largeur et en longueur à un feutrage. Si vous ne souhaitez pas feutrer, il est recommandé de regarder parmi les autres modèles non feutrés. Bon tricot!

Bonjour, je ne suis pas certaine de comprendre l'étape suivante de ce patron: "continuer en jersey mais continuer à tricoter à l'endroit tous les rangs 1 m de chaque côté". Est-ce que cela veut dire que sur le rang envers, la 1ère m. se tricote toujours à l'endroit. Merci!!

DROPS Design 23.01.2015 kl. 15:22:

Bonjour Mme Tessier, la phrase a été reformulée, vous continuez en jersey en continuant à tricoter 1 m à l'endroit (= au point mousse) de chaque côté, c'est-à-dire au début et à la fin du rang. Bon tricot!

Ik begrijp niet goed waarom je bij dr kleinste maat een hoogte breidt van 18 cm, terwijl de voetlengte maar 11 cm is. Kan dit uitgelegd worden aan mij?

DROPS Design 11.02.2014 kl. 10:27:

Hoi Ester. Na het vilten (krimpen) past de slof bij een voetlengte van 11 cm. Maar eerst moet je een grotere slof breien om te vilten. Dus volg het patroon en brei tot 18 cm
