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:
At the beginning of each round/row of single crochets, replace the first single crochet with 1 chain stitch. When working in the round, the round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the chain stitch from the beginning of the round. When working back and forth, the row finishes with 1 single crochet in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the previous row.
At the beginning of each round/row of double crochets, replace the first double crochet with3 chain stitches. When working in the round, the round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the round. When working back and forth, the row finishes with 1 double crochet in the chain stitch from the beginning of the previous row.
Work in each stitch, (not between stitches).

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease at the beginning of the row as follows: Replace 1 single crochet/double crochet with 1 slip stitch.
Decrease at the end of the row as follows: Turn the piece when the number of single crochets/double crochets left on the hook is the number to be decreased and work back.

2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER:
Work1 double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on the hook), then work the next double crochet, but when you are working the last pull through, pull the strand through all the loops on the hook (you have now decreased 1 double crochet).

LOBSTER STITCH:
Work single crochets from the left to the right.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1.
----------------------------------------------------------

LEFT SLIPPER:
READ CROCHET INFO and start with the sole. Work 18-20-22-26 chain stitches (including 1 chain stitch to turn) with hook size 3 mm / C and BabyAlpaca Silk.
The first row is worked as follows: 1 single crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, 1 single crochet in each of the next 16-18-20-24 chain stitches = 18-20-22-26 single crochets, turn the piece. On the next row, work 3 single crochets in the first single crochet, 1 single crochet in each single crochet until there is 1 single crochet left on the row and 3 single crochets in the last single crochet = 22-24-26-30 single crochets on the row. Continue by working single crochets back and forth (with 1 single crochet in each single crochet) until there is 1 row left before the piece measures 3-4-4-5 cm / 1"-1½''-1½''-2''. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Now bind off 2 single crochets in each side – READ DECREASE TIP= 18-20-22-26 single crochets on the row and the piece measures approx. 3-4-4-5 cm / 1"-1½''-1½''-2''. Cut and fasten the strand. Insert 1 marker thread in each corner = 4 marker threads. Continue working double crochets around the sole as follows:
ROUND 1: Start mid back (= middle of the one short side) - Work 1 slip stitch in the first stitch, 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 double crochet), work 2-3-3-4 double crochets up to the corner, 2 double crochets in the corner, 18-20-22-26 double crochets along the side, 2 double crochets in the corner, 5-7-7-9 double crochets along the other short side (= the toe), 2 double crochets in the corner, 18-20-22-26 double crochets along the side, 2 double crochets in the corner and 2-3-3-4 double crochets to mid back, finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the round = 54-62-66-78 double crochets.
ROUND 2: Work as for round 1, but the 2 double crochets in each corner at the front of the slipper (by the toe) are worked 2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER – see description above = 52-60-64-76 double crochets.
Continue by working 2-2-3-3 rounds with double crochets (work 1 double crochet in each double crochet) without decreasing. The piece now measures approx. 3-3-4-4 cm / 1"-1"-1½"-1½" in height.

ANKLE STRAP:
Remember CROCHET INFO! Start from the right side, work 2 rows with double crochets back and forth over the middle 5-5-5-7 double crochets mid back on the slipper and finish by working 33-34-35-36 chain stitches at the end of the last row, turn the piece. Work 1 double crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, 1 double crochet in the next double crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 double crochet (= buttonhole), then work 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 27-28-29-30 chain stitches and 1 double crochet in each of the last remaining 5-5-5-7 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

TOP:
Remember CROCHET INFO! Start from the right side and work 1 double crochet in each of the middle 7-9-9-11 double crochets mid front of the slipper. Continue by working pattern back and forth according to A.1. Repeat rows 1 and 2 in A.1 until the top measures approx. 4-4-5-5 cm / 1½"-1½"-2"-2". Cut and fasten the strand. Fasten the top in each side of the slipper with small, neat stitches.

EDGE:
Work 1 round with LOBSTER STITCH – see description above, along the whole of the opening of the slipper and round the ankle strap. Cut and fasten the strand.

MIDDLE STRAP:
Work 1 single crochet in each of the middle 5 single crochets mid front of the slipper (the first row is worked at the back of the lobster stitches). Work single crochets until the strap measures approx. 6 cm / 2 3/8''. Fold the strap double towards the wrong side and fasten to the inside of the slipper with small, neat stitches.
Sew on a button mid back of the slipper approx. 0.5 cm / 1/4'' from the top.

RIGHT SLIPPER:
Work as for the left slipper, but in reverse. In other words, work in the same way until the first 2 rows of double crochets on the ankle strap have been completed. Now work 1 row with slip stitches back from the right side before working 33-34-35-36 chain stitches for the ankle strap, the rest of the slipper is worked in the same way as for the left slipper.
