----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Piece is worked in the round from toe and back to instep, then work back and forth from mid back on heel.

Work 4 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with Nepal and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work 6-6-5 dc in ch-ring – READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 12-12-10 dc.
ROUND 3 (and then every other round): Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in first/next dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 18-18-15 dc.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 24-24-20 dc.
ROUND 8: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 30-30-25 dc.
ROUND 10: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 6-6-5 times in total = 36-36-30 dc. Inc are now done in size 35/37. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

SIZE 38/40 - 41/43:
ROUND 12: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 6-5 times in total = 42-35 dc. Inc are now done in size 38/40.

SIZE 41/43:
ROUND 14: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 40 dc.
ROUND 16: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 7 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 5 times in total = 45 dc. Inc are now done in size 41/43.

ALL SIZES:
= 36-42-45 dc on round. Then work as follows: PATTERN-1 - see explanation above, over the first 16-22-25 dc, 1 ch, work A.1 over the next 20 dc as follows: * skip 2 dc, in next dc work as follows: FAN - see explanation above, 3 ch, work a new fan in same dc, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, 1 ch. On next round work as follows: Pattern-1 over the first 22 tr, 1 dc around ch, work A.1 as follows: * 1 dc in fan, 3 dc around ch-space, 1 dc in fan *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total, 1 dc around ch.
Repeat these 2 rounds until piece measures 14-16-18 cm, adjust to finish with a round with tr. Fasten off. Now work back and forth, start from WS.

Do not work over the middle 2 repetitions of A.1.
Work as follows, beg from WS: Work 1 dc between transition from middle and last repetition of A.1, continue to work A.1 over next repetition as before, 1 dc around ch, PATTERN-2 - see explanation above, over the next 16-22-25 tr, 1 dc around ch, A.1 over the next repetition as before, fasten with 1 dc between transition to next repetition = 30-36-39 dc. Continue with A.1 and pattern-2. On every row with tr beg and end row with 1 tr and on every row with dc beg and end row with 1 dc - Remember CROCHET INFO.

When slipper measures 20-23-25 cm on the shortest (i.e. approx. 6-7-7 cm from where it is divided), adjust so that next row is with dc, insert 1 marker in the middle of piece (= 1 dc at beg of row, A.1, 1 ch and 11 dc on each side of marker). On next row dec 1 tr on each side of marker, i.e. beg 2 sts before marker and work the next 4 tr tog 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP (= 2 tr dec) = 20 tr under foot. Work 1 row without dec, place slipper double and work tog mid back with a row with sl sts around both layers (slipper now measures approx. 22-24-27 cm from toe to heel). Fasten off.

EDGE:
Beg mid back and work a finishing edge at the top around the opening on slipper as follows: Work 1 dc, work along each long side: 4 dc around every ch-space (= tr row) and 1 dc in outer loops of every dc row, work as follows over the two repetitions skipped. A.1 over the middle two repetitions of A.1 as before (i.e. dc row), adjust so that dc no is divisible with 5. Then work as follows: 3 ch, * skip 2 dc, 1 fan in next dc, 3 ch, 1 fan in same dc, skip 2 dc *, repeat from *-* around the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch. Fasten off.

Work another slipper the same way.

Very disappointed with the way the pattern is written...beginning with row 4. I always have issues with the patterns on this site

DROPS Design 20.05.2019 kl. 14:13:

Dear Susan, The DROPS patterns are knitted and crocheted by thousands and thousands of people  around the world. We understand however that in certain countries, with different knitting/crochet traditions than Scandinavia, our patterns might be written in a way that differs from what some are used to. Just have another try with new eyes and follow each step as described (ex round 4 is an increase round where you will increase 6-6-5 sts on the round. Happy crocheting!

Jag virkar storlek 38/40 och första varvet med solfjädrar står det att de ska virkas över de nästa 20 fm. Fast på 20 maskor får jag 6 solfjädrar, inte 4. Hur ska det vara här?

DROPS Design 30.01.2017 kl. 15:59:

Hej Maria. Du har 20 m og hver gentagelse af A.1 gaar over 5 m, saa det er 4 gentagelser i alt.

Eva-Lena Dahl 17.01.2017 - 20:29:

Hej igen! se tidigare fråga. Tror jag kommit på felet. Mönster 1 första varvet ska man sticka 22 (storlek 35/37) stolpar enl mönster 1, inte 16 som det står (16-22-25 i beskrivningen). Då har man 14 maskor för diagram A1 - solfjädrar - och det blir då 4 solfjädrar resten av varvet. Det verkar stämma för mig när jag virkar. För övrigt är detta en toppensida med många fina beskrivningar - min favorit!

Eva-Lena Dahl 17.01.2017 - 13:49:

När jag ska virka första varvet med solfjädrar så står det i mönstret. Stolpar första 16 maskorna, sedan börjar jag med mönster enligt A1 över 20 maskor? som ska upprepas totalt 4 gånger, det blir fler än 4 solfjädrar, jag får 6 st solfjädrar på varvet för storlek 35/37. Andra varvet ska jag göra 22 maskor enligt mönster 1 - jag har bara 16 maskor före A1-mönstret. Har jag missförstått mönstret eller är något fel? Tacksam svar.

DROPS Design 18.01.2017 kl. 15:59:

Hej Eva-Lena. Jeg skal se paa det og sende videre. Om det er korrekt, saa retter vi ellers giver jeg besked senere hvad der ellers menes

Cyndi Jackson 09.02.2016 - 06:10:

I am having a problem understanding this pattern. On round 14, are you really leaving 8 st. unworked, joining to beginning of row, or are we turning the work,

DROPS Design 09.02.2016 kl. 10:21:

Dear Mrs Jackson, when piece measures 14-16-18 cm (see size), you don't work in the round anymore fasten off. On next row, join as stated and work now in rows leaving some sts unworked on mid upper foot for the opening of foot. Happy crocheting!
