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

MAGIC CIRCLE:
To avoid hole in the middle beg with this technique:
Hold yarn end in the left hand and make a loop around left index finger (from left to right). Hold the loop with left thumb and index finger. Insert needle through loop, get yarn from ball, pull yarn back through loop, 1 YO (place yarn from the back and towards you) and pull YO through sts on needle, * insert needle through loop, 1 YO, pull YO through loop, 1 YO and pull YO through outermost st on right needle (i.e. the last st made) *, repeat from *-* until there are 12-12-12 sts on needle. Distribute sts on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm. Then work as explained in pattern – AT THE SAME TIME pull yarn end so that loop is tighten tog and the hole disappears.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. Work entire slipper in stocking st.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Work in the round in stocking st from the toe and back towards heel.

Start with red and MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above. On first round work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size) - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 has been worked, there are 32-36-40 sts on needle. Now slip the first 15-17-19 sts on round (= under foot) on a stitch holder, then switch to needle size 4 mm and work 2 ridges in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above, over the last 17-19-21 sts on round (= on top of foot) with red. Loosely cast off with 2 strands.
Now cast on 17-19-21 sts on needle size 4 mm with 2 strands red. Then work with 1 strand red. Work 2 ridges back and forth, then switch to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and put sts from stitch holder back on needle = 32-36-40 sts. Continue in the round with pattern and dec according to diagram A.2. When entire diagram has been worked vertically and 16-20-20 sts remain on round, cast off the remaining sts. Knit another slipper the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog heel in one and one st inside cast-off edge.
Sew edges in garter st neatly tog on each side of foot as follows: Place edge on edge in garter st from top of foot over edge in garter st from back of foot and sew tog through both layers in the sides. Fasten off.
