Tips & Help

Thank you for choosing DROPS Design!

We do our best to make our patterns easy to follow.

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side. Choose the diagram for your size.

DECREASE/INCREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease/increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 63 stitches), minus the edge stitches (e.g. 2 stitches) and divide the remainder by the number of decreases/increases to be made (e.g. 6) = 10.1. In this example, you work every 9th and 10th stitches together, or you increase after every 10th stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
All decreases are made from the right side!
Decrease as follows after the edge stitch/marker thread: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch.
Decrease as follows before the marker thread/edge stitch: Start 2 stitches before the marker thread/edge stitch and knit 2 together.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
The whole slipper is worked back and forth, with circular needle and sewn together mid back and mid under foot at the end.

LEG:
Cast on 53-53-63 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and Nepal. Work the first row as follows from the right side: 1 edge stitch in GARTER STITCH – see description above, work A.1A over the next 50-50-60 stitches (= 5 repeats of 10-10-12 stitches), work A.1B (= 1 stitch) and finish with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 has been completed, work stocking stitch with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side – AT THE SAME TIME on the first row from the right side decrease 2-0-6 stitches evenly along the row – READ DECREASE/INCREASE TIP = 51-53-57 stitches on the needle. Work until the piece measures 18-19-20 cm, but finish so that the next row is worked from the wrong side.

FOOT:
Work the first 19-19-20 stitches on the needle as before and then place them on a thread, cast on 1 new stitch on the needle, purl the next 13-15-17 stitches (= top piece), cast on 1 new stitch on the needle, work the last 19-19-20 stitches as before and then place them on a thread = 15-17-19 stitches on the needle. Cut the strand you have been working with.
Work back and forth over the 15-17-19 stitches on the top piece as follows: 1 edge stitch in garter stitch, 1-2-3 stitches stocking stitch, A.2 (= 11 stitches), 1-2-3 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way.
When A.2 has been completed 2 times in height work stocking stitch over all the stitches with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch in each side until the top piece measures 7-8½-10 cm – AT THE SAME TIME on the last row from the wrong side decrease 1 stitch in each side by purling the 2 first and the 2 last stitches on the row together = 13-15-17 stitches left on the needle. Place the stitches on 1 thread and cut the strand you have been working with.
The next row is worked from the right side as follows: Knit the 19-19-20 stitches from the thread on the right-hand side of the piece, knit up 13-16-19 stitches along the side of the top piece (knit up inside the 1 edge stitch in garter stitch), knit the 13-15-17 stitches in the front of the top piece, knit up 13-16-19 stitches along the other side of the top piece and knit the 19-19-20 stitches from the thread on the left-hand side of the piece = 77-85-95 stitches on the needle. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Knit 1 row from the wrong side where you increase 11 stitches evenly along the row in all sizes = 88-96-106 stitches on the needle. Insert 1 marker thread between the middle 2 stitches at the front of the toe. Continue by working garter stitch back and forth until finished length.
When the piece measures 2 cm – adjust so that the next row is worked from the right side, decrease 1 stitch after the edge stitch at the beginning of the row, one on each side of the marker thread in front and one before the edge stitch at the end of the row – READ DECREASE TIP (= 4 stitches decreased). Decrease in this way every 4th row (i.e. every other row from the right side) until the piece measures approx. 5-5-6 cm – cast off the remaining stitches. 

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the seam mid back and continue the seam under the foot – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat. Work another slipper in the same way.

Diagram

= knit from the right side, purl from the wrong side
= purl from the right side, knit from the wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= 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
= BUBBLE: Knit 1 in front and behind the same stitch until there are 4 stitches, turn and purl from the wrong side over these 4 stitches and then knit 1 row from the right side. Use the left needle and pass second stitches from the right-hand needle over the first stitch, then off the needle, pass the third stitch over the first stitch and then the fourth stitch over the first stitch (= 1 stitch left)
