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 pattern in stocking st. Choose diagram for correct size.

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

Start with medium blue and MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above - on double pointed needles 4.5 mm. On first round work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION When A.1 has been worked, slip the first 15-17-19 sts on round (= under foot) on a stitch holder, then 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 medium blue. Loosely cast off with 2 strands.
Now cast on 17-19-21 sts on needle size 4.5 mm with 2 strands medium blue. Continue with 1 strand and work 2 ridges, slip 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. Fasten off.

Kan denne opskrift laves i størrelse 44/45... ? Hvordan gør jeg? Alexandra

Hej Alexandra, når du først er igang, så tror jeg let du kan strikke det strykke rundt om foden så langt du vil, inden du går igang med hælen. God fornøjelse!

Is het mogelijk om het patroon uit te breiden naar maat 46 (EUR)?

DROPS Design 01.04.2016 kl. 16:33:

Hoi Dayen. Ik kan je helaas niet helpen met individuele aanpassingen, maar het zou mogelijk moeten zijn met hulp van de stekenverhouding (aantal st per 10 cm) en als je weet hoe groot de slof dan moet worden. Succes!

Die Slipper finde ich wunderschön, leider kann ich noch keine Muster stricken. Deshalb meine Bitte: könnten Sie mir eine Kurzanleitung geben, wie ich daraus unifarbene Slipper stricken kann? Vielen Dank!

Sie können ganz einfach die Farbwechsel weglassen und stricken die Diagranmme nur einfarbig glatt re mit den Zunahmen und Abnahmen. Sie müssen nur beachten, dass durch das Norwegermuster die Hausschuhe etwas dicker sind, da man ja den Faden, den man gerade nicht braucht, beim Stricken auf der Rückseite mitführt. Ihre Schuhe werden dann also etwas "dünnschichtiger". Für einen Einstieg ins Musterstricken schauen Sie sich doch einfach mal unser Hilfsvideo "Fair Isle" oben im Kopf neben dem Foto an - es ist nicht so schwierig, wie es Ihnen vielleicht erscheint, man muss nur ein wenig aufpassen und mitzählen. Sie können das Muster auch an einem Probestück testen.

The way these slippers hug the feet and fit so snugly to the foot is what drew me to this pattern as to how well the foot is covered to keep warm with how well it stays on the foot. This is a very nice and well functioning design.
