From RS: * Work 6-6-7-7 sts, turn - READ KNITTING TIP - and work 6-6-7-7 sts. Work 10-10-12-12 sts, turn and work 10-10-12-12 sts. Work 6-6-7-7 sts, turn and work 6-6-7-7 sts *. Work 1 row over all sts, repeat from *-* in opposite side, beg from WS. Then work 1 row back over all sts from WS.

When turning mid piece slip first st. Tighten yarn and continue as before. There might be a small hole in piece but this will even out after felting.

To make the fringes hang nicely they should be moistened, shaken and dried before they are tied on.

The slipper is worked back and forth on needle.
Beg at the top of the leg and finish with the toe. Cast on 38-42-44-44 sts on needle size 9 mm with Eskimo. K 1 row from WS (1st row = from WS), 7 rows in stocking st, K 1 row from WS (work loops in this row later). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Then work in stocking st until finished measurements. Work as follows (next row = from RS): K 2 tog, K 34-38-40-40, K 2 tog = 36-40-42-42 sts. Work next row as follows (= from WS): P 2 tog, P 32-36-38-38, P 2 tog = 34-38-40-40 sts. Work next row as follows (from RS): Work ANKEL ELEVATION over the outermost sts in each side – see explanation above!
Work 6 rows in stocking st over all sts, AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row dec 4-4-4-2 sts evenly = 30-34-36-38 sts.
From RS: * Work 10-10-11-12 sts, turn and work 9-9-10-11 sts, work 2 sts in last st on needle. Work 6-6-7-7 sts, turn and work 5-5-6-6 sts, work 2 sts in last st on needle. Work 1 row over all sts *, repeat from *-* in opposite side, beg from WS. Repeat from *-* 2 more times in each side (= 3 times in total in each side) = 42-46-48-50 sts.
From RS: * Work 10-10-11-12 sts, turn and work 8-8-9-10 sts, work last 2 sts tog. Work 6-6-7-7 sts, turn and work 4-4-5-5 sts, work last 2 sts tog. Work 1 row over all sts *, repeat from *-* in opposite side, beg from WS. Repeat from *-* 2 more times in each side (= 3 times in total in each side) = 30-34-36-38 sts.
Insert 1 marker in the outermost st on one side, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE. Then dec from RS on top of foot like this: Work 8-8-9-10 sts, K the next 2 sts tog, work until 10-10-11-12 sts remain, K 2 tog, work remaining sts on row, repeat the dec on every row from RS a total of 3-3-4-4 times = 24-28-28-30 sts. Continue in stocking st without dec until piece measures approx. 18-21-25-29 cm, measured from marker.
Dec 3-4-4-4 sts evenly on next row from RS, repeat the dec on every row from RS 4-4-4-4 times in total = 12-12-12-14 sts on needle. On next row from RS K sts tog the entire row 2 by 2 = 6-6-6-7 sts. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Crochet loops to fasten fringes in. Work in P sts (i.e. 9th row from cast-on edge). Work on hook size 7 mm with Eskimo as follows from RS: Work 1 dc in first st, * 2 ch (= loop), skip 1 st, 1 dc in next P-st *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Fasten off.

Sew tog mid under foot and up to cast-on row, sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam. Knit another slipper.

Cut 1 leg of a nylon stocking in 2 (along side). Thread stocking up and down through loops to avoid them felting tog, tie tog the ends of stocking. Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 degrees 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 programme.

Fasten 1 fringe in each loop after felting - READ FRINGE TIP. 1 fringe = cut 2 lengths of 20 cm each. Fold them double, thread the loop through the loop on the slipper and pull ends through the fringe. Cut fringes to a length of approx. 7 cm.

How many stitches are cast on

DROPS Design 06.11.2018 kl. 21:04:

Dear Jan! You have to cast on 38-42-44-44 sts, choose the number according to your size (ex. in size 35/37 you have to cast on 38 sts). Happy knitting!

Linda Haverkamp 03.11.2018 - 19:59:

Pattern states: "Then work in stocking st until finished measurements." What is the finished measurement before continuing with the ankle elevation?

DROPS Design 05.11.2018 kl. 09:12:

Dear Mrs Haverkamp, you work now in stocking stitch until the slipper has been completed, ie to the end of the slipper. Happy knitting!

Kann man die Hausschuhe nicht wie "normale" Socken stricken und dann filzen.?

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:31:

Liebe Frau Aksoy, dafür haben wir keine Erfahrung, am besten folgen Sie die Anleitung dieser Hausschuhen wie sie erklärt wurde. Leider können wir keine individuellen Umrechnungen vornehmen, wenden Sie sich mit diesem Wunsch bitte an den Laden, in dem Sie die Wolle kaufen. Vielen Dank für Ihr Verständnis.

Irena 20.10.2017 - 12:39:

Czy przerabiając piętę, również należy po przerobieniu pierwszych oczek i obróceniu pierwsze oczko zdjąć z drutu i zacisnąć nitkę (jak wg WSKAZÓWKI przy robieniu kostki)?

DROPS Design 20.10.2017 kl. 18:01:

Witaj Ireno, dokładnie tak: zawsze gdy zawracamy w środku rzędu, zdjąć 1-sze o., zacisnąć nitkę i dalej przer. jak wcześniej. Może pojawić się dziurka, która zniknie po filcowaniu. Miłej pracy!

Heidi Breinlinger 21.08.2017 - 16:23:

Ich habe Grösse 40/42 gestrickt (brauche Grösse 37). Nach dem Waschen habe ich eine Fusslänge von 20 cm!

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 12:10:

Liebe Frau Breinlinger, hatten Sie die richtige Maschenprobe? Gerne können Sie Ihre Erfahrung Ihrem DROPS Laden mitteilen.

Hvorfor er den kategoriserer under hækling? Det gør det sværere at finde den igen

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 14:32:

Hej Jenny. Der var en lille fejl i vores side her, men vi arbejder paa sagen, saa det burde vaere löst indenfor et par dage :)

Jenny 15.10.2016 - 08:42:

Hei! Ohjeessa lukee, että "neulo sitten sileää neuletta lopulliseen mittaan asti", mikä tämä lopullinen mitta on? :) Kiitos vastauksestanne jo etukäteen!

DROPS Design 18.10.2016 kl. 16:03:

Neulot sileää neuletta, kunnes tohveli on valmis. Tohvelin mitat huovutuksen jälkeen ovat seuraavat: Jalkapohjan pituus: 22-24-26-28 cm ja tohvelin korkeus: n. 19 cm.

Elizabeth-Anne 25.01.2016 - 14:33:

Bonjour, J'ai un doute. Après le dernier rang de diminution talon (30 mailles), je dois placer un marqueur dans la maille la plus au bord de l'un des cotés. Ce marqueur je le pose donc à l'endroit extérieur le plus large du talon et non pas sur la maille extérieure du dernier rang de diminution ? C'est bien cela ? Merci.

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 17:06:

Bonjour Elizabeth-Anne, le marqueur se place dans une des m lis, après les diminutions du talon, quand on commence le pied. Bon tricot!

Helle Lagermand 29.12.2015 - 22:58:

Kan jeg købet et par i str 36/37 færdig-lavet ? Åhhh det håber jeg da jeg har sclerose og ønsker mig så endelig et par at hygge mig i 🙏🏼 Mvh Helle Godt nytår

DROPS Design 06.01.2016 kl. 16:47:

Hej Helle. Vi saelger ikke faerdiglavede sokker, men kontakt en garnbutik, de kender sikkert nogen der kan strikke dem til dig mod betaling.

Marion 02.11.2015 - 12:19:

Bij welke beenhoogte wordt gestart met het meerderen voor de hiel?

DROPS Design 02.11.2015 kl. 14:28:

Hoi Marion. We geven geen hoogte aan. Maar je begint na de 6 nld tricotst en het minderen van de steken: "Brei 6 nld in tricotst over alle st, minder TEGELIJKERTIJD in de 1e nld 4-4-4-2 st gelijkmatig = 30-34-36-38 st."
