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.

See diagram A.1. Work entire pattern in stocking st.

Inc 1 st on each side of the middle 2 sts by making 1 YO, on next row work the YOs twisted to avoid holes.

Piece is worked back and forth on needle from mid back, beg at the top and work downwards.
Cast on 40-40-52 sts on needle size 4 mm with light grey. Work 5 rows in stocking st (1st row = P from WS). Insert 1 marker in the middle of piece and 1 marker in one of the sides - NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM MARKER IN THE SIDE.
Work next row as follows from RS: 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above, work pattern according to diagram A.1A until 1 st remains before marker in the middle of needle (= 3-3-4 repetitions of 6 sts), work 2 sts in stocking st with light grey (= mid front of slipper), work pattern according to diagram A.1B over the next 18-18-24 sts and finish with 1 edge st in GARTER ST. Continue pattern like this (when A.1 has been worked, continue with light grey until finished measurements). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3-3-4 cm from marker in the side inc 1 st on each side of the 2 middle sts on needle – READ INCREASE TIP (= 2 sts inc). Repeat inc on every row (i.e. from both RS and WS) 17-19-18 times in total = 74-78-88 sts - NOTE: Work the inc sts in the pattern. After last inc cast off 5 sts at beg of the next 2 rows = 64-68-78 sts remain on needle and piece measures approx. 12-13-13 cm from marker in the side.
Work 27-29-34 sts, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder or spare needle, work the next 10 sts (= mid front on slipper) and slip the remaining 27-29-34 sts on 1 stitch holder or spare needle. Work in garter st back and forth over the 10 sts (= sole) AT THE SAME TIME K last st on every row (both from RS and WS) tog with first st on stitch holder/spare needle. Repeat until all sts on stitch holder/spare needle in each side have been worked. Cast off the 10 sts in garter st on sole.

Sew seam mid back on slipper - sew edge to edge in front loop of outermost st in garter st to avoid a chunky seam. Then sew cast-off edge on sole to slipper mid back where there is an opening.

Make a pompom with cerise, 4-5 cm in diameter and fasten it at the front of slipper.
Knit another slipper.

Zijn deze slofjes geschikt om te vilten?

DROPS Design 08.09.2019 kl. 18:06:

Dag Irene,

Ja, dat zou je zeker kunnen doen. Het garen Andes is ook heel geschikt om mee te vilten. Houd er wel rekening mee dat er gemiddeld ongeveer 2/3 over blijft na het vilten, dus je zult de slofjes een stuk groter moeten breien.

Bonjour, quand j'arrive à l'étape des augmentations, je suis perdue. J'arrive à suivre le motif sans soucis quand il n'y a pas d'augmentations à faire. J'ai réussi à les faire aux rangs 5 et 6 avec les augmentations car cette étape est présente dans le tutoriel vidéo. Mais après c'est le vide... Avez-vous une astuce pour faire les augmentations en jacquard, comment lire le motif dans ce cas là? Merci.

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 08:27:

Bonjour Karina, vous augmentez après A.1A et avant A.1B en répétant les diagrammes: pour A.1A, les nouvelles mailles tricotées le seront en reprenant le diagramme à partir de la 1ère m à droite (dès que vous aurez augmenté 6 m = 1 motif complet) et pour A.1B, répétez le diagramme en le commençant par la dernière m de A.1B (puis l'avant-dernière et ainsi de suite jusqu'à ce que les 6 m augmentées vous donnent un motif complet). Bon tricot!

Carole 10.12.2017 - 03:07:

I wrote in French a question but dont get an answer. In the pattern its written to place a marker in the middle and 1 any side... where is that? And also mesure from the side marker... I really dont understand can you please write it more clearly for me please Thanks

DROPS Design 10.12.2017 kl. 06:55:

Hi Carole, The marker in the side is just for measuring purposes, so it doesn't matter which side, so at the start or end of the row and the length of the piece is measured from here. The marker in the middle is mid front of slipper and helps to make the two sides of the slipper match, I hope this helps and happy knitting!

Carole 08.12.2017 - 17:49:

Bonjour Dans le patron ça demande de mettre un marqueur au milieu et sur le côté. Que voulez-vous dire sur le côté ... où exactement pour le côté. Ça dit également de mesurer à partir de ce marqueur à 3 cm je ne comprends vraiment pas comment faire. Pouvez-vous me dire plus clairement svp. Merci de m'aider

DROPS Design 11.12.2017 kl. 08:36:

Bonjour Carole, mettez le marqueur en début ou en fin de rang (= sur le côté de l'ouvrage). On va désormais mesurer la hauteur le long de ce côté (au milieu devant, on va augmenter, la hauteur sera donc différente). Pour vous aider, regardez cette vidéo qui montre comment réaliser les chaussons en 35/37. Bon tricot!

Sara 01.12.2017 - 19:36:

Når man skal strikke de nye masker ind i mønsteret, strikker man så gradvist en ny omgang af A.1A før midtermarkøren og tilføjer en ny omgang gradvist i A.1B når de første 3 omgange er strikket? Er det rigtigt forstået sådan? vh Sara

DROPS Design 05.12.2017 kl. 15:32:

Sara, når du har en ny maske, skal den strikkes i den farve du er kommet til hvis du skulle fortsætte mønsteret. God fornøjelse!

I ordered the yarn for these slippers, but thought there may not be enough to complete two slippers. Sure enough I finished knitting one slipper yesterday, and there is not enough of the light grey. I believe that the quantities at the beginning of the pattern are incorrect, and should read 200grams of grey and 100grams of cerise for the pair of slippers. I love your patterns and yarns and this is the first time in many years that there has been something wrong.

Nataliya Hagen 29.11.2016 - 13:00:

Det er ikke nok 100 gr av hovedfaget å strikke disse.Ikke i det hele tatt.?

Lacrose 21.10.2016 - 21:33:

Bonjour, vous annoncez un no d'aig 4 alors que la laine andes se tricote en 9, il y a erreur? une faute de frappe? merci

DROPS Design 24.10.2016 kl. 09:04:

Bonjour Mme Lacrose, on tricote ici volontairement avec des aiguilles plus petites pour obtenir une texture plus serrée. Pensez à bien vérifier votre échantillon et ajustez la taille des aiguilles si besoin. Bon tricot!

Cecilie 09.12.2015 - 12:04:

Jeg undrer mig over at opskriften siger pinde nr. 4, når der til Andes garn anbefales pinde nr. 9 og de andre garner i garngruppe E også ligger på pinde nr. 8 eller 9. Er dette en fejl?

DROPS Design 09.12.2015 kl. 12:34:

Hej Cecilie. Nej, det er det ikke. Standard anbefales pinde 9 til Andes, men strikkefastheden til disse töfler er fastere (de strikkes strammere), saa du skal bruge en tyndere pind. Strik en pröve og brug den pind du skal bruge til den rette strikkefasthed: 15 m x 19 p glatstrik = 10 x 10 cm

Andreya 09.11.2015 - 11:55:

Can you post a video tutorial please? Thanks, have a nice day!

DROPS Design 09.11.2015 kl. 13:22:

Dear Andreya, here it is below - You can find this video and more under tab "video" on the right side of the picture. Happy knitting!
