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

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.

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

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.

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.


= K with white
= K with red
= 1 YO between 2 sts - with red
= K 2 tog - with red
= K 2 twisted tog - with red

HIRAUX Hélène 14.12.2018 - 17:42:

Bonjour, je ne comprends pas ce que signifie le fait de monter 19 mailles avec les aiguilles 4 et 2 fils rouges puis un fil rouge ensuite : est ce monter les mailles avec deux fils puis ne tricoter ensuite qu’avec une seul fil? Merci pour votre réponse et tous vos modèles et vos vidéos !

DROPS Design 14.12.2018 kl. 19:09:

Bonjour Mme Hiraux. Il faut monter 19 mailles avec 2 fils, ensuite couper un fil et continuer a travailler avec un seul fil. Bon tricot!

Gerda Van Den Hof 01.12.2018 - 17:15:

Hallo, ik krijg gaten met de omslag breien...heeft u een video? Want volgens mij zie ik geen gaten

DROPS Design 04.12.2018 kl. 12:44:

Dag Gerda,

Om gaatjes te voorkomen kun je de omslagen op de volgende naald het beste gedraaid breien, dus in de achterste lus van de omslag.

Vilde Venås 24.11.2018 - 18:28:

Har dere video på hvordan man starter med disse? skjønner ikke oppskriften i det hele tatt.. Håper dere har :)

DROPS Design 26.11.2018 kl. 11:51:

Hei Vilde. Her er en video av hvordan du begynner: . God fornøyelse

Caroline 31.08.2017 - 22:08:

Hej! Hur börjar man första varvet i A1? Om jag läser nerifrån, från höger till vänster, så är första instruktionen "1 omslag mellan 2 maskor". Hur gör jag då? Blir det hål när man stickar omslag i mönstret eller hur undviker man det? Vänliga hälsningar Caroline

DROPS Design 11.09.2017 kl. 14:29:

Du ska börja varvet med 1 omslag. På följande varv bör du sticka omslaget vridet så att du undviker hål i arbetet.

Nina Johanne 19.03.2017 - 08:40:

Oppskriften sier striik to riller, fell løstt av med to tråder, betyr det dobbel tråd eller er det en spesiell teknikk?

DROPS Design 20.03.2017 kl. 12:17:

Hoi Nina. Ja, dobbel trad (2 traade paa 1 gang).

Dea 21.12.2015 - 13:43:

Potete fare un video che mostra la chiusura del tallone?

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 14:05:

Buongiorno Dea, invieremo la sua richiesta alla casa madre, ma si intende una cucitura semplice, maglia per maglia. Buon lavoro!

Dea 21.12.2015 - 10:22:

Buongiorno, cosa si intende per "chiudere il tallone maglia per maglia"? Cucitura a punto maglia o in inglese "kitchenere stitch"?

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 14:04:

Buongiorno Dea, non viene indicato il metodo di cucitura del tallone, ma solo di cucire maglia per maglia. Buon lavoro!

Dea 15.07.2015 - 07:54:

Quanto deve essere lungo il ferro circolare? grazie

DROPS Design 15.07.2015 kl. 11:39:

Buongiorno Dea, la lunghezza del ferro circolare è indifferente, perchè il bordo a maglia legaccio è lavorato avanti e indietro e le maglie sono poche. Buon lavoro!

Else 13.12.2014 - 16:33:

Hvorfor kommer det ikke diagram på tøflene når jeg skriver ut? Kom kun utskirift av øverste del (11 og 13 linjer) av str 38/40 og 41/42.

DROPS Design 18.12.2014 kl. 16:20:

Hei Else. Det ved jeg desvaerre ikke. Vi har ikke kunnet finde nogle fejl paa printen her, saa det kan ligge i dine print indstillinger.
