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 grey and 2 rows light grey alternately upwards.

Cast on (52-54-56) 60-62-66-70 sts on needle size 5 mm with denim blue or grey. Insert a marker in middle of piece. 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 = (56-58-60) 64-66-70-74 sts. Continue in stocking st but work 1 st in each side K on every row. When piece measures approx. (11-12-12) 13-14-15-15 cm (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), K the first (8-8-8) 9-9-9-9 sts before slipping them on a stitch holder (for button strap), then cast off the next (2-2-2) 2-2-3-3 sts, work the rest of row. Turn piece and cast off the first (10-10-10) 11-11-12-12 sts = (36-38-40) 42-44-46-50 sts remain on needle. Continue in stocking st until finished measurements – AT THE SAME TIME dec 1 st at the beg of every row (2-2-3) 3-3-3-3 times in each side = (32-34-34) 36-38-40-44 sts. When piece measures (18-21-24) 27-29-31-34 cm in total, K all sts tog 2 by 2 from RS. Work 1 row without dec, then K all sts tog 2 by 2 one more time = (8-9-9) 9-10-10-11 sts remain. Cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts and tighten tog.

BUTTON STRAP:
Slip the (8-8-8) 9-9-9-9 sts from stitch holder back on needle size 5 mm. (On the slipper with stripes, work the entire button strap with grey.) K back and forth (= garter st) until strap measures (8-9-10) 11-13-14-16 cm. Now cast off the middle (2-2-2) 3-3-3-3 sts for button hole. On next row cast on (2) 3 new sts over the cast off sts. Then dec at the end of every row by K 2 tog until only (2) 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 (11-12-12) 13-14-15-15 cm. Work next row as follows: Cast off the first (10-10-10) 11-11-12-12 sts, work the rest of row. Turn, work the first (8-8-8) 9-9-9-9 sts and then slip them on a stitch holder, cast off the next (2-2-2) 2-2-3-3 sts = (36-38-40) 42-44-46-50 sts remain on needle. Continue as on right slipper.

EARS:
Cast on (6-6-6) 7-7-8-8 sts on needle size 5 mm with denim blue or grey. 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 (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 40 degrees 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 programme.

FACE:
Embroider on a red mouth and black eyes, nose and whiskers as on picture.

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

Dit patroon met Big Merino was inderdaad geen succes... de wol vilt zelfs niet in kokend water, ik heb dit patroon gebreid met dubbele draad Alpaca. Dit is heel mooi geworden. Mijn neefje was er erg blij mee!

Hoi Caja. Big Merino is een Superwash garen, dus dat vilt inderdaad niet. Je moet voor het vilten altijd wol gebruiken, dat niet Superwash behandeld is.

Bedankt voor uw advies. Voor de zekerheid heb ik Oranje 'Big Merino' besteld deze valt in de zelfde garen categorie.. Deze kan op dezelfde naald dikte zodat ik het patroon kan aanhouden. Maak wel een proeflapje voor de zekerheid dat ik ook vilt. Bedankt.

Hoi Caja. Big Merino is superwash behandeld. Dit garen vilt niet. Ik zou snel de order aanpassen! G

Caja 12.07.2013 - 00:02:

Kan ik dit patroon ook breien met de wol "eskimo" garengroep E? Op naalden 5? Ik wil deze slofjes graag in het oranje breien, vind de eskimo kwaliteit erg mooi. Alvast Bedankt. Vriendelijke Groeten Caja

Hoi Caja. Eskimo is veel dikker dan Alaska. Ik denk dat het niet zal kloppen met de stekenverhouding. Maar brei een proeflapje in Eskimo, ga hem vilten en zie hoe het resultaat (stekenverhouding) het doet.

I am not sure what to do on the row where pattern says to purl next row with 2 k sts in each side. Does that mean to k2, then purl to within 2 stitches of the end of row and knit the last 2. Also, what does it mean to " continue in stockinett st but work 1st in each side k each side? Thanks for the help. I'm new at this.
