It is important to have the correct knitting gauge and to be exact when measuring so that the squares are quadratic.

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

Worked back and forth in one long piece in garter st that is sewn tog when finished. READ MEASURING TIP above! NOTE! Make sure to work the same no of ridges in each square.

Cast on 16-18-20 sts on needles size 6 mm / US 10 with Big Delight. Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Continue until 32-36-40 rows in garter st have been worked (= 16-18-20 ridges) (insert a marker here = 1st square). REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Now cast on 16-18-20 new sts = 32-36-40 sts. Work 32-36-40 rows in garter st back and forth (= 2nd and 7th square). On the next row from RS, bind off the first 16-18-20 sts = 16-18-20 sts (= insert a marker here = between 2nd and 7th square). The remaining sts on needle = 2nd square. Continue in garter st and insert a marker in the piece for every 32-36-40 rows in garter st worked 3 more times (= 3rd, 4th and 5th square). Then work over the first 16-18-20 sts, insert a marker here (= 6th square), cast on 16-18-20 sts (= 8th square). Continue with 32-36-40 rows in garter st and bind off.
Knit another slipper the same way.

Fold the slipper and sew neatly tog edge to edge - see illustration to see square's placement after assembly.

Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40C/104F with normal spin but no pre-wash. After wash shape the slippers to the right size while still wet and leave to dry flat. At subsequent wash, wash the slippers at regular wool program.
