Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

For that purpose, each of our patterns has specific tutorial videos to help you, which you will find at the bottom of the page.

We have also step-by-step lessons to help you understand some of the techniques we use in our patterns. You'll find them here!

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
To avoid a hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. * Insert hook through loop, get the yarn from ball, pull thread through loop, make 1 YO on hook and pull YO through st on hook = 1 sc *, repeat from *-* until there are 5-6-8 sc in loop, finish with 1 sl st in first sc. Continue as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

Replace first sc at beg of round with 1 ch. Finish every round with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round. I.e. when piece is worked in the round, work alternately from RS and WS and fasten with 1 sl st in first ch on round.

Slipper is worked on hook size 10 mm / N/15 with 1 strand of each color (= 2 strands Eskimo). Beg working from the toe. Piece is first worked in the round - read CROCHET INFO above, then worked back and forth.

Make a MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above.
ROUND 1 (WS): Turn piece and inc 4 sc evenly = 9-10-12 sc.
ROUND 2 (RS): Turn piece and work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 3 (WS): Turn piece and inc 4 sc evenly = 13-14-16 sc.
Work 8-8-10 rounds with 1 sc in every sc (last round is worked from WS).

Now work back and forth.
ROW 1: Work over the first 8-9-11 sc.
ROW 2: Turn piece and work over the first 7-8-10 sc.
ROW 3: Turn piece and work over the first 6-7-9 sc.
ROW 4: Turn piece and work over the first 5-6-8 sc.
Work 1 sc in every sc until slipper measures approx. 23-25-26 cm / 9”-9¾”-10¼”. Fasten off.

Work the edge around with 2 strands old pink as follows: 1 sc in every row and 1 sc in every sc mid on top of foot, repeat 1 more time (= 2 rounds in total). Fasten off. Work another slipper.
