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

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 40 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Eskimo. Work A.1, on last row in A.1 adjust no of sts to 39-41-43. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION

Then work according to A.2 with 1 edge st in GARTER ST - see explanation above - in each side over the remaining 15-15-15 sts. When A.2 has been worked, continue in garter st until over piece measures 7-8½-10 cm, on last row (= from WS) dec 1 st in each side = 13-13-13 sts, slip sts on 1 stitch holder and cut the yarn. Work next row as follows (from RS): Work sts from stitch holders back on needle AT THE SAME TIME pick up 12-14-16 sts on each side of over piece inside 1 edge st = 63-69-75 sts. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Then work piece back and forth in garter st until finished measurements. Insert 1 marker mid front on toe. When piece measures 2 cm, K 2 tog on each side of marker. Repeat dec every other row – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4-4-5 cm, K 2 tog inside 1 edge st in each side of piece, repeat dec in the side every other row (= 4 sts dec in total every other row). Cast off when piece measures 5-5-6 cm. Knit another slipper the same way.

Sew seams under foot in outer loops of edge sts to avoid a chunky seam. Sew tog mid back in front loop of outermost sts.

J'adore ce modèle je l'ai juste modifié de façon à faire une semelle plus simple à faire pour moi mais j'adore merci

Sylvie 07.01.2018 - 19:40:

Bonjour. Combien doit -on avoir de mailles avant de rabattre toutes les mailles ? Merci

DROPS Design 08.01.2018 kl. 09:37:

Bonjour Sylvie, vous rabattez toutes les mailles après avoir tricoté 5-5-6 cm point mousse, en diminuant tous les 2 rangs au dernier cm. Si votre tension est juste en hauteur, vous devriez avoir diminué 2 fois environ. Bon tricot!

Sylvie 23.12.2017 - 22:05:

Bonjour. Que voulez dire par "placer 1 marqueur au niveau devant, côté pointe du pied". Est ce que c'est à la moitié des mailles (63 pour la taille 35/37 ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 08:14:

Bonjour Sylvie, tout à fait, vous devez avoir la moitié des mailles entre les 2 marqueurs, l'un sera situé au milieu devant (= entre les mailles côté pointe) et l'autre au niveau du talon. Bon tricot!

Hallo, ich würde sehr gerne die hausschuhe nach stricken, nun meine frage hab ich dass so richtig verstanden dass ich mit nadelst. 5,5 stricke und die wolle dazu ist aber in nadelst. 8 mm. ist dass so richtig über eine antwort würde ich mich freuen

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 11:35:

Liebe Steffi, es stimmt so, die Hausschuhe werden mit dünneren Nadeln gestrickt, beachten Sie nur, daß Ihre Maschenprobe (= 13 M x 17 R glatt re oder 14 M x 28 R kraus re) stimmt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

This pattern is improved by knitting it in the round on double pointed needles / circular needle - no unsightly sewn seam Also grafting the sole closed (Kitchener method), instead of sewing it improves the appearance of the finished item
