Pattern instructions

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.
GARTER ST (in the round on double pointed needles):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

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

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.

PATTERN 2:
Row 1 (= RS): * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain, K 2.
Row 2 (= WS): K over K and P over P. Repeat 2nd row
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
First work an edge at the bottom of leg, then work the foot. Then work a loose leg across.

LEG:
Cast on 37-37-39 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm with Andes. Work in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above - until piece measures approx. 4 cm, finish after 1 round P. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

FOOT:
Now work piece back and forth.
Now keep the first 10 sts on the needle, slip the remaining 27-27-29 sts on 1 stitch holder. Now work a middle part according to PATTERN 2 – see explanation above, over the 10 sts – AT THE SAME TIME at the end of the next 2 rows cast on 1 new edge st (work edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above) = 12 sts. When middle part measures 7-8½-10 cm, dec 1 edge st in each side = 10 sts. Then slip the sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 12-14-16 sts on each side of middle part (inside 1 edge st) = 61-65-71 sts on needle. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker in the middle of the 10 sts on middle part (= mid front on toe) and 1 marker in st at the back of heel, there are 30-32-35 sts between markers in each side. Now continue piece in the round in garter st. When piece measures 2 cm, K 2 sts tog on each side of every marker on every other round (= 4 sts less per round). Continue dec until piece measures 5-5-6 cm. Cast off the remaining sts. Sew seams under foot in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.

LOOSE LEG WORKED ACROSS:
Worked back and forth on needle.
Cast on 22 sts on needle size 6 mm with Andes. Work 4 ridges AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 6 sts evenly = 28 sts. Work according to A.1 (= 28 sts) until piece measures approx. 35-36-38 cm. Work 4 ridges AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 6 sts evenly = 22 sts. Cast off. Place cast-off edge over cast-on edge and sew on 3 buttons for decoration through ridges on the leg.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the loose leg worked across to cast-on edge on leg (i.e. cast-on edge for leg at beg of pattern). Sew the loose leg so that buttons are placed on the outside of slipper with opening faced backwards towards the heel – sew from WS so that seam is invisible.

Knit another slipper the same way, make sure that the leg opening is in the opposite side.

Hi , I watch the video of pattern 2 but the yarn over stitch is not clear for me?

DROPS Design 16.04.2019 kl. 07:45:

Hi Pauline, The yarn over is just winding the yarn around the right needle before working the next stitch. Happy knitting!

Hoii, in het patroon staat dat breinaald 6 gebruikt moet worden, maar in de lijst van de garencatagoriën staat dat deze wol voor naald 9 is, is dit een typfout in het patroon?

DROPS Design 17.02.2019 kl. 18:43:

Dag Marjolein,

Er wordt in dit patroon inderdaad een andere naalddikte gebruikt dan staat aangegeven in de garenlijst. De stekenverhouding is ook anders. Dit is geen typefout, maar is bewust gedaan, zodat het breiwerk wat dichter wordt.

Sarah 25.09.2017 - 21:44:

I find this pattern very hard to follow, and I am not a beginner - I'm not used to patterns starting from the middle and having to find my way from starting to the end, and back to the beginning. Very difficult to follow.

DROPS Design 26.09.2017 kl. 09:08:

Dear Sarah, the video below is showing how to knit these slippers, this should help you to vizualize how they are worked. Happy knitting!

Gwen Maddox 25.06.2016 - 04:49:

I am not sure where it says "work according to A1 until piece measures 38cm." Is the 38cm measured from cast on edge (i.e. beginning of garter stitch) or is it measured from the beginning of the piece where the A1 pattern starts ?

DROPS Design 27.06.2016 kl. 08:40:

Dear Mrs Maddox, measure the 38 cm from the cast on edge. Happy knitting!

Deborah 16.04.2016 - 15:56:

What are double pointed needles and also what ply wool are you using please?

DROPS Design 17.04.2016 kl. 14:54:

Dear Deborah, double pointed needles are straight needles with two points, perfect for working small circunferences in round, such as socks or sleeves. They're usually sold in group of four or five, and you cand find them of different lenghts. This pattern is worked in Andes, which is a super bulky yarn. Happy knitting!
