DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st before marker as follows: K 2 tog.
Dec 1 st after marker as follows: K 2 twisted tog.

GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

SEED ST:
Row/round 1: * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*.
Row/round 2: K over P and P over K. Repeat 2nd row/round.

MEASURING TIP:
Measure in the middle of cable in A.1/A.3.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Worked back and forth from mid back.
Cast on 33-33-35 sts on needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Nepal (let the yarn end be approx. 20 cm / 8"; used for assembly). Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 4 sts evenly = 37-37-39 sts. Then work as follows from RS: P 4, A.3 (= 8 sts), 13-13-15 sts SEED ST – see explanation above, A.1 (= 8 sts), finish with P 4. Continue the pattern like this, work P sts K from WS. Repeat A.1 and A.3 until finished measurements. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures 10½-11½-13 cm / 4¼''-4½"-5" – see MEASURING TIP above, work as follows from RS: P 4, A.3, 13-13-15 sts seed st, A.1, P 4, cast on 4 new sts, work the first 4 sts, round beg here = 41-41-43 sts. Now work piece in the round on double pointed needles. Work pattern as before but now work A.2 (= 12 sts) over the 4 P sts in each side of piece and the 4 new sts. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work A.a until piece measures 17-19-22 cm / 6¾''-7½"-8¾". Now work in stockinette st over sts in A.a, or start stockinette st a bit earlier. Continue A.1 and A.3 until finished measurements. Now insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Work A.3 but insert 1st marker between 1st and 2nd st and 2nd marker between 7th and 8th st in A.3, work seed st as before, work A.1 but insert 3rd marker between 1st and 2nd st and 4th marker between 7th and 8th st in A.1, K the remaining sts (= 14 sts on top of foot, 15-15-17 sts under foot and 6 sts in each side of piece).

Now dec for toe on next round as follows: Dec 1 st after 2nd marker and 1 st before 3rd marker under foot 0-0-1 time in total – READ DECREASE TIP above, work the remaining sts = 14 sts on top of foot and 15 sts under foot (= 41 sts in total). On next round, dec as follows: Dec 1 st before 1st and 3rd marker and 1 st after 2nd and 4th marker (= 4 dec in total). Repeat dec every round 6 times in total AT THE SAME TIME on last dec work cable sts in A.1 and A.3 as follows: K 2 twisted tog, K 2 tog. After all dec there are 13 sts on needle. Piece measures approx. 20-22-25 cm / 8''-8¾"-9¾". Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Meine Frage hat sich erledigt aber ich denke dann ist die Anleitung falsch. Die Anschlagkante ist nicht der obere Rand sondern die Stelle an der der Hausschuh zusammengenäht wird.

Sandra 19.01.2019 - 09:18:

Eigentlich kann ich doch von Anfang an in Runden stricken oder? Ich sehe keinen Grund warum ich nicht gleich damit anfange

Emily Reardon 05.01.2019 - 22:05:

When I am ready to cable in A.2 (row 3) it says to P/K1 from cable needle. This depends on whether you are on a RS/WS? Should I be knitting only RS now that I am joined in the round? Therefore all cables with be knit? Thank you!

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 11:01:

Dear Mrs Reardon, the sts in the middle of A.2 will be worked in seed stitch, so when working the cables in A.2 you will have to either K or P the st depending on how it should be worked on next row. Happy knitting!

Sacha Roest 02.01.2019 - 19:42:

You say that the cable row is row 5 in diagram A.1 and A.3 but it is actually the 4th row.. You see my confusion. But I understand what to do now, thanks

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 20:41:

Dear Sacha, the cable row is row 5 in diagram A.1 and A. 3. Diagrams are to be read from the bottom corner, right to left. Happy crafting!

Sacha 31.12.2018 - 13:52:

Hello, the first time to start with the charts A.3 & A.1 it says to start on RS. But then the cable row end up being a WS row.. am I missing something here? In the cable explanation it says to knit so that seems like a RS.

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 11:06:

Dear Sacha, first row of all diagrams will be worked from RS so that the cable (= row 5 in A.1 and A.3) happens on a RS row. Happy knitting!

Aivan ihana ohje! Mutta miksi jalkapöydän kohdalla ruvetaan toistamaan A.a:ta A.2 sijasta? Tiukalla käsialallani sukkaan mahtuisi hyvin kaksi salmiakkikuviota, joten voinko korvata A.a toistamisen vain jatkamalla koko salmiakkikuviota (A.2)?

Hello, Thanks for posting this lovely pattern! I read the pattern before I started and want to make some notes. I just want to make sure that the first chart to use is A.3 and not A.1. Also, is the RS considered the row with the first line of knit stitches after the cast-on row? Thank you!

DROPS Design 19.12.2018 kl. 08:39:

Hi Lorraine. Happy to hear you like the pattern. Yes, A.3 is worked before A.1. The only difference between them is the way the cable turns. On the photo featuring the back of the slippers, you can see A.3 is on the left side and A.1 is on the right side of the foot. Yes, the first row worked after cast on is the RS, that way the first row in the diagrams are also the RS. Happy knitting

Bleue 11.12.2018 - 22:14:

Hi, my question is about A1 pattern. I don't understand exactly how to do "slip 1 st on cable needle behind piece, K 2, P/K 1 from cable needle". Yes, firstly I should knit twice, than what? purl firstly one time and than knit the one from cable needle. But when I do that, spiral look doesn't occur. I can get the desirable look from A3. What can be the reason?

DROPS Design 12.12.2018 kl. 08:03:

Hi Bleue, You slip the stitch onto the cable needle and the needle lies at the back of the piece, knit the next 2 stitches (not the stitch on the cable needle) and then either purl or knit the stitch from the cable needle depending on which round you are on. I hope this helps and happy knitting!

Bonjour,\r\nJe ne comprends pas le passage du tricot en _ retour au tricot en rond, \r\nComment tricoté t\'on les\'4 premières mailles?\r\nAuriez vous une vidéo qui explique ce point de\'l\'ouvrage, les explications trouvés dans les commentaires ne m\'aide pas vraiment.\r\n\r\nJe vous remercie\r\nMathilde

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 10:41:

Bonjour Mathilde, vous pouvez répartir les mailles sur les aiguilles doubles pointes juste à ce moment là: tricotez 4 m env, A.3, 13-13-15 m point de riz, A.1, 4 m env, monter 4 m, répartissez les mailles sur les aiguilles doubles pointes et tricoter les 4 premières m du tour, les tours commencent désormais ici.
