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.
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. 1 round knit and 1 round purl.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = 2 rows knit.

STRIPES:
Work * 1 ridge off white, 1 ridge gray *, repeat from *-* to finished measurements.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn over twisted to prevent holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
The piece is worked in the round from the toe backwards, then work back and forth over the heel. Sew together mid back and mid front of the toe.

Cast on 28 stitches with double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and gray. Knit 1 round and insert 1 marker in the first stitch and 1 marker in the 15th stitch (= the sides). Continue with stockinette stitch AT THE SAME TIME as, on the next round, you increase 1 stitch on each side of both markers (= 4 stitches increased on the round) – READ INCREASE TIP! Increase in this way every 2nd round 3-4-4 more times, then increase 1 stitch before each marker (= 2 stitches increased on the round) 0-0-1 times = 44-48-50 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue working stockinette stitch until the piece measures 13-14-15½ cm / 5"-5½"-6 1/4''.
Work 2 RIDGES in the round – see description above, AT THE SAME TIME as you insert a marker mid top of foot after the first 11-12-13 stitches. Cut the strand.
Start after the marker (from the right side) and work STRIPES and RIDGES back and forth – see description above. Bind off when the piece measures approx. 26-28½ -31½ cm / 10 1/4"-11 1/4"-12½" (let the strand end be approx. 20 cm / 8'' long, this is used for assembly).

ASSEMBLY:
Fold the binding-off edge double and sew together mid back – sew in the outermost stitch so that the seam is not too thick.
Sew together the hole at the front of the toe with graft stitches in gray – sew the 14 stitches on top of the foot with the 14 stitches under the foot.

Work another slipper in the same way.

FELTING:
Put the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash hot at 40C/104F with the normal spin and without pre-wash. Afterwards, put the slippers on your feet and shape them to the right measurements while they are still wet. Later, wash the slippers as wool garments.

Skal der strikkes hele vejen rundt fra mærket midt på foden ? Jeg kan ikke se hvordan man skal sy sammen under foden ??? Skal der strikkes i 2 stykker fra mærket til midt bag ??

Hei Dorthe. Du strikker rundt fra tåen og frem til du setter et merke midt oppå foten (når arbeidet måler ca 13-14-15½ cm.) Videre strikkes det frem og tilbake på pinnen, fra merket midt oppå foten. Det vil si at den delen med striper (hælen) er strikket frem og tilbake. God fornøyelse.

Vil gjerne bruke drops eskimo på denne oppskriften, hvordan forholder jeg meg til antall masker pinnestørrelse og mål Kunne også tenkt meg enda en større størrelse (44/46) Blir veldig glad om jeg kunne få svar meget raskt, da jeg ville lage disse som presanger og ikke har så lang tid på meg 1000 takk

Hej Inger, Vi har flere filtede tøfler i Eskimo, det er bedre du bruger de opskrifter: tovede tøfler

Opskriften passer. Til gengæld passer garnangivelsen IKKE: Der er for lidt af den naturfarvede, hvis man følger farvesammensætningen. Mangler til den ene bagstrop og snørrebånd! Til gengæld er der RIGELIGT i de andre farver, hvor jeg har 2 nøgler af den aqua og 1 nøgle af den havblå til overs. Har hæklet den mindste størrelse. MEN hellere for meget end for lidt! med venlig hilsen Lisbeth

Der er noget der ikke passer i denne opskrift: Der slås 28 masker op og tages 1 maske ud på hver side af begge mærker (= 4 masker taget ud på omgangen) 3-4-4 gange til, hvorefter der tages 1 maske ud før hvert mærke (= 2 masker taget ud på omgangen) 0-0-1 gang = 44-48-50 masker. (for str. 38 bliver det: 28+4x4+0=44m og ikke 48m) Senerre sættes der et mærke midt ovenpå foden efter de første 11-12-13 masker. Er det det korrekte antal masker?

DROPS Design 02.11.2017 kl. 14:00:

Hei Vibeke. Det er riktig slik det står i oppskriften. Det står: Tag ud således på hver 2.omgang 3-4-4 gange til, ... Altså; det står beskrevet hvordan du øker og deretter skal du gjøre det 3-4-4 gange til (Totalt 4-5-5 ganger). Da stemmer maskeantallet med hvor merket som settes oppå foten. God Fornøyelse!

Coleen Gray 29.04.2017 - 13:02:

When measuring for the length of the slipper, ie "Cast off when the piece measures approx.26-28½ -31½ cm", do you measure from the start of the garter stitch or from the original cast on? I am asking because I don't have anywhere near the same number of stripes as in the picture for this pattern, although my gauge is correct,

DROPS Design 02.05.2017 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Gray, this should be total length (= from cast on). Remember to keep same tension when working garter st. Happy knitting!
