Change color on same row as follows: Work the first 4 sts on row with dark brown, work next st with light plum - but twine the threads first at the back so that the two parts are linked tog.

Worked in one, beg at the top of leg. Loosely cast on 24-25-26 sts on needles size 8 mm / US 11 with dark brown. K 5 rows (1st row = RS, beg of row seen from RS = mid back, end of row seen from RS = mid front). REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

When piece measures 50-53-56 cm / 19 3/4"-21"-22", bind off for leg at beg of every row from WS as follows: bind off 1 st 3-3-2 times, 2 sts 3-4-6 times = 22-23-24 sts.
On next row from RS work as follows: Work 13-13-14 sts, turn and work back from WS (= 9-10-10 sts remain in the left side, slip the sts on a stitch holder). Continue in stockinette st over the 13-13-14 sts until piece measures 72-76-82 cm / 28 3/8"-30"-32 1/4". P 1 row from WS while AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st = 14-14-15 sts.

Fold the slipper double RS against RS and sew tog mid back in outermost sts. Sew the same way at the front over the foot and up along leg mid front.
Turn the slipper with RS out. Place band in dark brown over the other side of slipper and fasten it as follows: Beg from short side of band and continue along the entire long side of band.
Sew long side on the other side of slipper to the back of band.
