Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every dc round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
Replace first sc at beg of every sc round with 1 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch at beg of round.
Replace first dc at beg of every dc row with 3 ch.

COLOR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing color work as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next dc. When working with two color place strand for the color not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows in the round. Make sure not to tighten the yarns.
Replace first dc with ch 3, if last dc on previous round and first dc on next round are different color work last dc as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round, then work 3 ch (= beg of round).

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working the next 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), then work next dc but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

DECREASE TIP-1 (evenly spaced):
To calculate how often dec should be done, use the total no of dc on round (e.g. 56 dc) and divide by no of dec to be done (e.g. 5) = 11.2. I.e. in this example work approx. every 10th and 11th tog.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show colors on slippers. 1 square in diagram = 1 dc.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEG:
Worked in the round, top down from mid back. Work 64 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with sea blue. Work 3 ch (= 1 dc) - READ CROCHET INFO, 1 dc in first ch from ch-ring, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* = 56 dc. Work A.1 (= 8 sts) 7 times in total on round - READ COLOR PATTERN. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 16 cm / 6 1/4''.

Work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc with raspberry rose AT THE SAME TIME dec 8 dc evenly = 48 dc. Insert 1 marker between 24th and 25th st (marks mid front). Fasten off.

HEEL:
Now work back and forth. Beg 5 dc from marker. Work with raspberry rose as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the 38 dc (= 10 dc remain mid front, these dc are no longer worked). Continue with 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 7-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-3"-3½'' from marker (= 23-24-25 cm / 9"-9½"-9 3/4" in total).

Work next row as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 15 dc, work the next 2 dc tog – READ DECREASE TIP, * 1 dc in next dc, work the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* 2 times in total, work 1 dc in each of the last 15 dc = 35 dc. Work 1 row with 1 dc in every dc. Work next row as follows: Work 1 dc in each of the first 15 dc, * work the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, work 1 dc in each of the last 14 dc = 32 dc. Piece measures approx. 26-27-28 cm / 10 1/4''-10 5/8''-11'' in total. Cut the yarn and leave approx. 25 cm / 9 3/4'' for assembly.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog mid under foot. Fasten the strand.

FOOT:
Insert 1 marker in the piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work with raspberry rose. Beg mid under foot (i.e. where seam is). Work 14-16-18 dc evenly around dc row (i.e. before dc on leg) until 1 row remains, work 1 dc around last dc row but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc in first dc from leg but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook (= 1 dc dec), work 1 dc in each of the next 8 dc over leg, work 1 dc in last dc but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc around first dc row but on last pull through, pull yarn through all sts on hook (= 1 dc dec), work 14-16-18 dc evenly over the last dc rows = 38-42-46 dc.

Work 2 rounds with 1 dc in every dc and dec 1-3-3 dc evenly on every round - READ DECREASE TIP-1 (= 2-6-6 dc dec in total) = 36-36-40 dc. Work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures approx. 6-8-10 cm / 4'' from marker. Then work A.2 (= 4 dc) in total 9-9-10 times on round. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, work until finished measurements with sea blue as follows:

SIZE 9½/10½ (EU41/43):
Work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc and dec 4 dc evenly = 36 dc.

ALL SIZES:
ROUND 1: Work * 1 dc in each of the first/next 2 dc, work the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* 9 times in total = 27 dc.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 dc in first/next, work the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* 9 times in total = 18 dc.
ROUND 3: Work all 2 dc tog 2 by 2 = 9 dc.

ALL SIZES:
Cut the yarn, baste it up and down through sts at the tip of slipper, pull yarn to tighten and fasten tightly.

EDGE:
Work an edge around the leg in ch-row where first round was worked with sea blue as follows: Work 1 sc in every ch there was worked dc in on first round, i.e. Do not work in the ch skipped (= 56 sc).

Work another slipper the same way.

TWINED TIE:

Cut 2 strands with sea blue of approx. 2 meters. Twine them together until they resist, fold them double and they will twine
themselves together. Make a knot in each end. Thread the tie up and down on the shaft and fasten a small pompom made from all of the colors at each end.

Hallo liebes Team, folgendes Problem: An dem Punkt: "Fertigstellen" möchte ich wissen, wie genau ich vernähen soll. Wo fange ich an? Wo höre ich auf? Habe ich das richtig verstanden, dass ich mit dem 25cm langen Faden die komplette untere Naht schließe? Dann habe ich ja auch die Ferse zugenäht???? Dann der Fuss: Wo genau bringe ich den Markierer an? an der offenen Seite die dann spitz zuläuft? Vielen Dank für Ihre Mühe

Liebe Frau Schmidt, Sie müssen die letzte Reihe der Ferse doppeld falten, und die letzte Reihe von der Mitte an der Ferse bis untem am Fuß zusammennähen. Dann wird der Fuss um herum von dem Ferse-Teil gehäkelt. Der Markierer am Fuss soll vor der 1. Runde eingesetzt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

I love the socks! They are so cute, but I've run out of votes!

Elizabeth Walker 18.06.2016 - 16:06:

I love these socks, too! The pattern is beautiful but I've run out of votes!
