GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

Inc 1 st on each side of the middle 2 sts by making 1 YO, on next row work the YOs twisted to avoid holes.

Piece is worked back and forth on needle from mid back, beg at the top and work downwards. Cast on 50-54-58 sts on needle size 4.5 mm with 1 strand of each yarn (= 3 strands). Work 4 ridges in garter st over all sts. Work next row as follows: 1 edge st in garter st, * K 2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 edge st in garter st. P 1 row. Continue in stocking st but work first and last st in garter st - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row, inc 1 st on each side of the 2 middle sts – see INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc on every row (i.e. from both RS and WS) 15-17-20 times in total = 80-88-98 sts. Work 1 row after last inc. Now piece measures approx. 10-11-12 cm. Continue in garter st over all sts - at the same time after 3 ridges, dec 1 st at beg of the next 6 rows (i.e. 3 sts dec in each side) = 74-82-92 sts. When a total of 6 ridges have been worked, loosely cast off.

Sew seam under foot and up along mid back - sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.

Knit another slipper.

Cut 4 lengths of 1.5 metres each with off white. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Baste tie up and down through row with eyelet holes - start mid front. Make 2 pompoms with an approx. diameter of 2 cm in off white. Fasten a pompom in each end of the tie. Repeat on the other slipper.

Bonjour j’ai réalisé ce modèle exactement comme dit avec’ un même numéro d’aiguilles, j’ai été très déçue du résultat Trop large pas joli pointe très pointue. J’ai tout démonté et refait avec’ beaucoup de modifications, le résultat est’ plus beau sauf encore la pointe orteils’ mais ma prochaine paire je ferais des’ dimini comme pour pointe de chaussettes. Peut on vous faire parvenir une photo.
