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.

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

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

SLIPPER:
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).

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.
