Worked from toe towards heel, work lace edge at the end.

Ch 4 on hook size 3 mm / C with Merino Extra Fine and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Insert a marker at beg of round but do not finish every round with 1 sl st, just work in the round to make the beg and end of round less visible.
ROUND 1: 8 sc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 12 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 18 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the first 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 24 sc.
ROUND 5: * 1 sc in each of the first 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 30 sc.
ROUND 6: * 1 sc in each of the first 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 36 sc.
ROUND 7: * 1 sc in each of the first 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 42 sc.
ROUND 8: 1 sc in every sc - at the same time inc 4-6-8 sts evenly on round = 46-48-50 sc.
Continue working in the round with 1 sc in every sc until piece measures 7-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3"-3½".
Now divide for opening mid on top of foot as follows: Work until 4-6-6 sc remain on round, turn with ch 1, skip first sc and work 1 sc in each of the next 40-40-42 sc. * Turn with 1 ch and work 1 sc in every sc *, repeat from *-* until entire piece measures approx. 20-22-25 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-9 3/4" (the slipper will be stretched when worn), cut the thread and sew tog edge to edge mid back of heel.

Start mid back from inside of slipper.
ROUND 1: 1 sc, * skip approx. 1.5 cm / ½'', work as follows in next st: 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr, 1 ch and 1 tr, skip 1.5 cm / ½'' and work 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* around the entire slipper, skip a little less than 1.5 cm / ½'' mid front to avoid a tight lace edge when it is folded over the slipper, finish round with 1 sl st in first sc instead of last sc.
ROUND 2: ch 3, * in 3-ch-space from previous round work: 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 3, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, 1 ch and 1 tr, then 1 dc in sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 3: Work as 2nd round, cut and fasten the thread.

Crochet another slipper the same way.

Steam iron the slippers lightly so that the lace edge lies neatly around the edge of opening.

Ik heb de laatste rij anders gemaakt, zodat de hak mooi rond loopt ipv zo mal vierkant: haak 1 v in de eerste 10 steken, dan de volgende 20 steken 1 v, 1 overslaan, 1 v, enz en de laatste 10 steken gewoon weer 1 v in elke steek. Dan bij het sluiten heb ik de rijgdraad iets aangetrokken, tot het mooi om de hak sluit.

Jolis pour soi et à offrir ! Rajouter 3 rangs à 46 ms avant de diminuer pour les pieds un peu larges

Ludivine 23.10.2013 - 21:46:

Pouvez-vous m'aider car mes rangs vont en diminuant pour arriver au talon ? Où est mon erreur ? Faut-il augmenter à un endroit ? Merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 24.10.2013 kl. 09:33:

Bonjour Ludivine, quand vous continuez en allers et retours, veillez à bien continuer sur les 40 ou 42 ms (cf taille) comme dans la vidéo ci-dessous, 1 ms dans chaque ms. Bon crochet!
