NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round/row with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round. Finish row with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row.
Replace first tr at beg of every tr round/row with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Finish row with 1 tr in ch from beg of previous row.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc/tr by working 2 dc/tr in same st.

DECREASE TIP:
Work 1 dc/tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc/tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook = 1 dc/tr dec.

CROCHET TIP:
On the round after tr at the front of slipper have been worked tog 2 by 2, work somewhat tightly at the front of slipper, i.e. tighten the yarn a little between every tr when working. This is done to avoid a loose mid piece at the front of slipper.

TEXTURE ROWS:
* 1 row dc (worked from WS), 1 row tr (worked from RS) *, repeat from *-* (1 row dc + 1 row tr = 1 texture row).
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
READ CROCHET INFO and beg with sole - NOTE: Work in every st (not between sts).
Work 12-14-16-19 (25-28) ch (incl 1 ch to turn with) on hook size 3 mm with light steel blue.

Then work 1 dc in every dc from previous row while AT THE SAME TIME inc 2 dc at beg and end of first row by working 3 dc in first and last dc on row = 15-17-19-22 (28-31) dc.
Work dc back and forth until 1 row remains before piece measures 3-3-4-4 (4½-5) cm. Now dec 2 dc in each side - READ DECREASE TIP = 11-13-15-18 (24-27) dc on row – NOTE: At the end of row beg dec when 4 dc remain, then work the last 4 dc tog 2 by 2.
