CROCHET TIP:
Make sure that sts picked up are loose enough.

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

CROCHET INFO:
At beg of round with sc work 1 ch (does not replace 1st sc). Finish round with 1 sl st in first sc at beg of round.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Worked in the round, top down.

LEG:
Work 25-29-31 LOOSE ch on hook size 8 mm / L/11 with Eskimo and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
Then work star pattern as follows:
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET TIP! Work ch 3, pick up 5 sts, beg in 2nd ch from hook (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, work 1 ch to make a hole over the 6 sts, * pick up 1 st in the hole, pick up 1 st in the side on the last of the 6 sts, pick up 1 st in same ch as the last of the 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in each of the 2 next ch (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 11-13-14 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
ROUND 2: ch 2, work 2 hdc in each "star hole", finish round with 1 sl st in 2nd ch at beg of round = 12-14-15 stars. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 3: ch 3, pick up 1 st in 2nd and 3rd ch from hook, 1 st in the back loop of the first 3 hdc on row (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, ch 1, * pick up 1 st in the hole, 1 st in the side on the last of the 6 sts, 1 st in the back loop of the same hdc as the last of the 6 sts was picked up in, 1 st in the back loop of each of the 2 hdc (= 6 sts on hook), make a YO and pull through all 6 sts, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 11-13-14 times in total, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Repeat from round 2 and 3 8 times in total. Then repeat 2nd round 1 more time = 9 rows with stars. Piece measures approx. 30 cm / 11 3/4''.

Turn the piece with WS outwards, turn and work 1 round the opposite way as follows: Work ch 1, 1 sc in every hdc AT THE SAME TIME dec 4-4-6 sts evenly – READ DECREASE TIP, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc = 21-25-25 sc. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

FOOT:
Work in the round.
Work every sc in back loop of sc on round below.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 8-10-10 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, skip next sc, 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 8-10-10 sc and 2 sc in last sc = 24-28-28 sc + 1 ch.
ROUND 2: Work 1 sc in each of the first 12-14-14 sc, 7 dc around ch and 1 sc in each of the last 12-14-14 sc = 31-35-35 sts.
ROUND 3: Work 2 sc in first st, 1 sc in each of the next 13-15-15 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, skip next 1 sc, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 13-15-15 sts and 2 sc in last st = 34-38-38 sc + 1 ch.
ROUND 4: Work 1 sc in each of the first 17-19-19 sc, 7 dc around ch and 1 sc in each of the last 17-19-19 sc = 41-45-45 sts.

ROUND 6: Work 1 sc in each of the first 22-24-24 sc, 7 dc around ch and 1 sc in each of the last 22-24-24 sc = 51-55-55 sts.

ROUND 8: Work 1 sc in each of the first 27 sc, 7 dc around ch and 1 sc in each of the last 27 sc = 61 sts.

ALL SIZES:
After last inc there are 51-55-61 sts on round. Continue in the round with 1 sc in every st until piece measures 6-7-8 cm / 2½"-2 3/4"-3''. On the next 5 rounds work the first 2 and the last 2 sc on round tog into 1 sc – Remember Decrease tip (work the other sc as before) = 41-45-51 sc. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Start under the foot at the front of toe. Sew tog edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam mid under foot. Fasten off. Fold leg so that RS is outwards. Work another slipper the same way.
