Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: Work 1 dc in next sc but wait with last pull through, work 1 dc in next sc the same way, make 1 YO and pull yarn through all 3 sts on hook.

Replace first dc at beg of every dc round/row with ch 3, finish round with 1 sl st in third ch.
Replace first sc at beg of every sc round/row with ch 1, finish round with 1 sl st in first ch.

2 rounds/rows with sc,
1 round/row with dc.
Repeat these 3 rounds/rows.

Work from the toe towards the heel and then the leg, fan edge and strap.
Work 5 ch with Alaska on hook size 4 mm / G/6 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 1: Work 12 dc around ch-ring – beg of round = mid under foot.
ROUND 2: Work * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 sc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 sc in every sc but inc 4-6-10 sc evenly = 34-36-40 sc.

Continue with PATTERN as explained above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When piece measures approx. 12-13-15 cm / 4 3/4"-5"-6'' – finish after 2 rounds with sc, cut the yarn. Insert 1 marker between the 2 middle sts on round, i.e. after 17-18-20 sc. Work piece with toe towards you and count 4 sts to the left of marker, beg working here from RS with dc. Work until 6 sc remain in total on round (i.e. 3 sts on each side of marker mid on top of foot), turn = 28-30-34 dc. Continue pattern as before – work 1 sl st in first dc, then sc until 1 dc remains on row, turn. Then work back and forth over the remaining 26-28-32 sts until piece measures approx. 21-23-26 cm / 8 1/4"-9"-10 1/4'' in total – adjust so that next row is a row worked with dc. Work next row as follows: 1 dc in each of the first 11-12-14 first sc, then work the next 4 dc tog 2 by 2 – READ DECREASE TIP, then work 1 dc in each of the last 11-12-14 sc. Cut the yarn. Fold the slipper double and sew tog edge to edge mid back.

Beg mid back and work 40-42-44 dc evenly around opening at the top of slipper. Continue in the round with pattern until leg measures 12-12-14 cm / 4 3/4"-4 3/4"-5½'', work 1 round with dc while inc 3-1-5 dc evenly = 43-43-49 dc.

Work 88 ch at the end of round, then work back and forth. Turn and work 1 dc in 4th ch from hook (= 2 dc), work 1 dc in each of the next ch 7, * skip ch 1, work 1 dc in each of the next 6 ch *, repeat from *-* 11 times (= 75 dc until slipper, work 1 dc in every dc from slipper = 118-118-124 dc). Turn and work fan edge around the opening on slipper and ch as follows:
ROW 1:
1 sc in first dc, * ch 3, skip 2 dc, 1 sc in next dc * = 39-39-41 ch-spaces. Turn.
ROW 2:
Work sl sts until mid of first ch-space, 1 sc around this space, * work 6 dc around ch-space, 1 sc around next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire row. Fasten off.
