GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

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

See diagram A.1 (choose diagram for correct size). Work entire pattern in stocking st.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round K YO twisted to avoid holes.

Worked in the round from the toe and backwards, then worked back and forth over heel. Sew tog mid back and mid front on toe at the end.

Cast on 20 sts on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm with goldenrod. K 1 round and insert 1 marker in first st and in 11th st (= sides). Continue in stocking st AT THE SAME TIME on next round inc 1 st on each side of both markers (= 4 sts inc on round) - READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc in each side every other round 2-3-4 more times = 32-36-40 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION Continue in the round with goldenrod until piece measures 5 cm. Then work in the round according to A.1 (= 2 repetitions in width). When A.1 is done vertically, work 2 ridges in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above, with cerise - AT THE SAME TIME insert a marker mid on top of foot after the first 8-9-10 sts. Cut the yarn.
Continue with cerise, beg after marker and work in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above. Cast off when piece measures approx. 22-24-26 cm (let the yarn end be approx. 20 cm, this is used for assembly).

Fold cast-off edge double and sew tog mid back - sew in edge sts to avoid a chunky seam.
Sew tog hole at the front of toe with grafting/kitchener stitches - sew the 10 sts on top of foot tog with the 10 sts under foot.

Knit another slipper the same way.

Jeg får ikke økningen på tåen til å stemme. Om jeg legger opp 20 masker og skal øke 4 m 4x for å få den største str får jeg 36m, men i mønsteret står det at man skal ende opp med 40m??

Ida 08.07.2018 - 23:10:

Ska ökningen för tån alltid ske före och efter markörerna man först sätter ut på 1a och 11e maskan? Gör jag det så får jag inte markören senare (vid 8-9-10 maskor) att hamna mitt på foten. Då hamnar den alldeles för lång ut på sidan alternativt att min tå blir sned och ökningarna hamnar ovanpå och under foten. Tyckte inte att videon hjälpte heller då den snabbspolade efter första varvets ökningar för tå. Vad har jag missförstått?

Hej Ida, økningen skall alltid ske före och efter markörerna i sidorna, så du alltid har lika många maskor ovanpå och under foten. Lycka till :)

Mary 02.12.2016 - 02:03:

Is there an error in the first column of the diagram A1?

DROPS Design 02.12.2016 kl. 08:42:

Dear Mary, diagram looks fine, start reading diagram at the bottom corner on the right side, beg with the 1st st for your size and repeat the number of sts applying to your size. Happy knitting!

Jeg forstår ikke, Strik 10m sammen med 10m under foden?? Mvh.

DROPS Design 21.11.2016 kl. 13:19:

Hej Joan. Du er startet med 20 m i okker - det er 10 over og 10 under. Dem syer du sammen = taaen.
