CROCHET INFO:
Start every row with sc with 1 ch.

CROCHET 2 STS TOG:
Crochet the first st but wait with last YO and pull through, crochet next st and at last pull trough now pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

CUFF
Worked sideways.
With 1 strand dark gray Eskimo ch 13 loosely. Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, then work 1 sc in every ch the entire row = 12 sc. Work back and forth with sc in the back loops of the sts for 10½-11-11½ inches. Fasten off.

SLIPPER:
Worked top down, back and forth with the opening in the back of leg.
With 1 strand ligh gray Eskimo and 1 strand Alpaca Bouclé held together work 31-33-35 sc evenly along one side of cuff.
Continue to work as follows: * ch 2, turn piece, work 1 dc in every st on row, ch 1, turn piece, work 1 sc in every st on row *, repeat from *-*. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures a total of 6 inches dec 2 sts on next row as follows: Work the first 2 sts tog - see explanation above - and at mid front work 2 sts tog = 29-31-33 sts on row.
Continue as before until piece measures 10-11-12 inches.

Now work the foot as follows – insert a marker in the middle st on row:

ROW 1: Work 1 sc in every st until st before mid st, 2 sc in next st, 1 ch (= middle st), skip next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 2: Work 1 sc in each of the first sts until the ch, work 7 dc in the middle ch (the 4th dc of the 7 dc is now the middle st) and 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 3: Work 1 sc in each of the next sts until st before mid st, work 2 sc in next st, 1 ch (= mid st), skip next st, work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

ROW 4: Work 1 sc in each st until mid st, 7 dc in ch and 1 sc in each of the last sts, turn piece.

Repeat 3rd and 4th row until piece measures approx. 9"-10"-11" measured in foot length - measure the piece is folded double.
Switch to 1 strand dark gray Eskimo and now measure piece from here.
* Work 1 row with sc, finish row with 1 ch and turn piece *, repeat from *-* until piece measures approx. 1½-1 3/4-2 inches. Work one more row where you work the first 2 and the last 2 sts tog. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the boot double, sew tog under foot and up along back of leg leg. Sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

POM-POM TIES
Work a ch-row with dark gray Eskimo of approx. 60''. Make small pompoms to fasten in each end – Tip: Before the second pompom is attached to the ch-row, pull the tie through a st at the bottom of leg in the back, in the transition between light gray and dark gray Eskimo, so it is fastened. Tie around the leg.

The pattern looks really nice. Just a suggestion..."eskimo" isn't a proper term (it's derogatory and means "raw meat eater") and it could offend some people. Inuit I believe is the proper name. Inuit "booties" are called mukluks. Just a gentle bit of information to use the proper words. Thanks.

Comment faire l'échantillon car je n'y arrive pas. Quels points dois-je faire au crocher pour y arriver?

DROPS Design 04.11.2016 kl. 09:20:

Bonjour Mme Gougeon, avec 1 fil Eskimo et 1 fil Alpaca Bouclé (= on travaille ici avec 2 fils en même temps), crochetez environ 15-20 ms sur 15-20 rangs. Vérifiez ensuite que dans votre échantillon, 10 ms x 11 rangs font bien 10x10 cm. Bon crochet!

My mom is want make the boots but she cant fine how much yarn she need can someone tell me how much she need.

DROPS Design 11.09.2016 kl. 21:09:

Dear Elizabeth, you carn fond the yarn amount at th top of the pattern, next to the picture. The booties sizes are: 35/37 - 38/40 – 41/43, and you'll need Eskimo, 200-200-250 g colour no 14 dark gray and 150-200-200 g colour no 53 light gray. And use: ALPACA BOUCLÉ 50-100-100 g colour no 517 gray. Happy knitting!

When starting the slipper part, it says "work 31-33-35 sc evenly along one side of cuff." How can that be done? I have 28 rows on the cuff. Also, does it matter on which edge I do it, and which side is facing out?

DROPS Design 06.05.2016 kl. 08:36:

Dear Katie, work 31-33-35 sc evenly along one side of the cuff, ie work 2 sc in same st to adjust to the correct number of sts for your size. When cuff is done, both sides are looking the same, just work along one long edge, cuff will then be folded down. See also video below. Happy crocheting!

I just made the first bootie of my first pair...It turned out really well...Not to toot my own horn but it actually was easy. The videos and pattern was clear and concise. I can tell I will be making many more of these in the coming days. Totoal time from start to complete finish (for my very first boot, leaving time to watch the videos a few times, ) was about 4 hours...I will do second boot tomorrow when I get the light again. I do love this pattern :)

Kathy 12.01.2016 - 06:55:

DROPS Design 12.01.2016 kl. 10:08:

And remember your DROPS store can help you to choose, you can contact them per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Merry Shaffer 11.01.2016 - 08:17:

I was noticing in your Assembly section for the pom-poms that you have the chain listed as 60"...or 5 feet, in US that would be Inches... should that read "Chain 60" for the pom-pom chain. Just wanted to make sure that is what you meant or not. Thanks...

DROPS Design 11.01.2016 kl. 11:29:

Dear Mrs Shaffer, you chain for 60 inches (= 150 cm) see video below to see how to assemble the chain with pompons to the slipper. Happy crocheting!

Jane Smith 10.01.2016 - 21:00:

I know several have asked this before but when I watched the video it shows the piece being measured with the cuff at 6". The video shows only 2 rows being crocheted after the color change then the decrease. I did the decrease after 6" of the slipper part and if I continue to make the slipper part until 11" it will be knee length without the cuff. I would just like to know which one to follow. Thank you

DROPS Design 11.01.2016 kl. 11:22:

Dear Mrs Smith, you crochet first dec measuring from the total length (cuf including), leg will be 11" in total including cuff. Happy crocheting!

Stacey 08.01.2016 - 20:17:
