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. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

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

See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

Cast on 38-38-40 stitches with double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 and Andes. Work GARTER STITCH in the round – see description above, until the piece measures approx. 4 cm / 1½'', finish after 1 round purl. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!

Now keep the first 11-11-11 stitches from the round on the needle, the other 27-27-29 stitches are placed on a thread. Work 2-2-4 rows stockinette stitch back and forth over the 11-11-11 stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first row cast on 1 new stitch in each side (edge stitches) = 13-13-13 stitches.
Then work pattern as follows: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, A.1 (= 11 stitches), finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When A.1 is finished continue with stockinette stitch. When the top piece measures 7-8½-10 cm / 4'' bind off 1 edge stitch in each side = 11-11-11 stitches. Continue by placing the stitches from the thread back on the needle and knitting up 11-14-16 stitches on each side of the top piece (inside the 1 edge stitch) = 60-66-72 stitches on the needle. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE.
Insert 1 marker thread mid front on the toe and 1 marker thread mid back on the heel. Continue in the round with garter stitch. When the piece measures 2 cm / 3/4'' knit 2 stitches together on each side of each marker thread every 2nd round (= 4 stitches less per round) continue the decreases until the piece measures 5-5-6 cm / 2''-2''-2½'' – bind off. Sew the seam under the foot in the outermost stitch so that there is not a thick seam. Work another slipper in the same way.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit from right side, purl from wrong side
= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the stitches which were knitted together.
= between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs. On the next row let the first yarn over drop down and knit the next (= 1 stitch)

I just finished making the 38/39 size. When I finished the A.1 pattern my piece ALREADY measured 8 1/2 cm. But your pattern says to continue in stocking stitch until piece measures 8 1/2 cm. I am wondering if the pattern could be incorrect. Could you please advise? Thanks

Dear Mrs Jennylunt, make sure your tension is correct and to measure along middle part only (= top of foot with A.1). If A.1 is finished when you reach 8.5 cm, continue as explained in pattern. Happy knitting!

Ich finde plötzlich nicht mehr den Button, um ein Modell zu meinen Lieblingsmodellen hinzuzufügen.
