Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
CROCHET INFO:
At the beginning of each round/row of double crochets, replace the first double 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 double crochet in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the previous row.
At the beginning of each round/row of treble crochets, replace the first treble 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 treble 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 double crochet/treble crochet with 1 slip stitch.
Decrease at the end of the row as follows: Turn the piece when the number of double crochets/treble crochets left on the hook is the number to be decreased and work back.

2 TREBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER:
Work1 treble crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on the hook), then work the next treble 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 treble crochet).

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

ANKLE STRAP:
Remember CROCHET INFO! Start from the right side, work 2 rows with treble crochets back and forth over the middle 5-5-5-7 treble 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 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from the hook, 1 treble crochet in the next treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 treble crochet (= buttonhole), then work 1 treble crochet in each of the remaining 27-28-29-30 chain stitches and 1 treble crochet in each of the last remaining 5-5-5-7 treble crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

TOP:
Remember CROCHET INFO! Start from the right side and work 1 treble crochet in each of the middle 7-9-9-11 treble 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. 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 double crochet in each of the middle 5 double crochets mid front of the slipper (the first row is worked at the back of the lobster stitches). Work double crochets until the strap measures approx. 6 cm. 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 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 treble 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.
