MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back.

ROUNDS WITH SC:
Beg every sc round with ch 1, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 sc by working 2 sc in next sc.

SC-ROW:
Beg every sc-row with 1 ch (not counted as 1st sc), 1 sc in every sc the entire row, turn.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc by working 2 sc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next sc, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.
--------------------------------------------------------

DOG SLIPPERS:
Worked first in the round and then back and forth. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - at the edge of toe with light gray on hook size 4.5 mm / US 7.
ROUND 1: Work 7-7-7-8-8 sc in the magic circle, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc. Then work ROUNDS WITH SC - read explanation above.
ROUND 2: Inc 1 sc in every sc - READ INCREASE TIP = 14-14-14-16-16 sc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 sc in every sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4-6-8-8-8 sts evenly on round = 18-20-22-24-24 sc.
ROUND 4: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 sc in every sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 8 sts evenly on round = 26-28-30-32-32 sc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 7: Work 1 sc in every sc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts evenly on round = 30-32-34-36-36 sc.
Then work 1 sc in every sc until piece measures approx. 7½-8½-9-10-11 cm / 3"-3 1/4"-3½"-4"-4½". When the last sc on round has been worked, do not work sl st in 1st sc but continue with 1 sc in each of the next 10-10-11-12-12 sc (= 1st row from RS), turn piece and work 1 sc in each of the next 20-20-22-24-24 sc from WS (= 10-12-12-12-12 sc remain mid front of slipper, now beg of round from earlier is under the sole). Then work SC-ROW - read explanation above - back and forth with 20-20-22-24-24 sc on every row. When piece measures approx. 14½-16½-17½-19½-21½ cm / 5 3/4"-6½"-6"-7 3/4"-8½", work next row from RS as follows:
ROW 1: Work 6-6-7-8-8 sc, dec 2 sc over the next 4 sc - READ DECREASE TIP = 8-8-9-10-10 sc, turn (10-10-11-12-12 sc remain on other side of row).
ROW 2: Dec 2 sc over the first 4 sc, 1 sc in every sc the entire row = 6-6-7-8-8 sc, turn.
ROW 3: Work 2-2-3-4-4 sc, dec 2 sc over the last 4 sc = 4-4-5-6-6 sc.
ROW 4: Dec 1-1-1-2-2 sc over the first 2-2-2-4-4 sc, 1 sc in every sc the entire row = 3-3-4-4-4 sc, cut and fasten the thread.
Work over the remaining 10-10-11-12-12 sc on the other side as follows:
ROW 1: Dec 2 sc over the first 4 sc, 1 sc in every sc the entire row = 8-8-9-10-10 sc, turn.
ROW 2: Work 4-4-5-6-6 sc, dec 2 sc over the last 4 sc = 6-6-7-8-8 sc, turn.
ROW 3: Dec 2 sc over the first 4 sc, 1 sc in every sc the entire row = 4-4-5-6-6 sc.
ROW 4: Dec 1-1-1-2-2 sc over the last 2-2-2-4-4 sc = 3-3-4-4-4 sc, cut and fasten the thread. Sew seam mid back of slipper.
Start mid back on slipper, crochet from RS one round with sc around the entire opening. Over the rows in the sides work as follows: Work 1 sc in every row along the sides, and 1 sc in every sc at the front of slipper - in 1st corner at the front work as follows: * Insert hook in the last sc from rows, get the thread, pull hook in the 1st sc from front part of slipper, get the thread, make 1 YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook *. Repeat from *-* in 2nd corner at the front but reversed. Finish round with 1 sl st in 1st sc. Then work 1 round with sc, cut and fasten the thread.

Worked in the round in a circle. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE with dark gray on hook size 4.5 mm / US 7.
ROUND 1: Work 4 sc in the magic circle - NOTE: Do not work sl st in 1st sc, READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE!
ROUND 2: Inc 1 sc in every sc = 8 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in next sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* one more time = 14 sc.
ROUND 5-6: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 7: * 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 12 sc.
ROUND 8: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 9: * 1 sc in next sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 8 sc, cut and fasten the thread. Work another ear the same way.
