Pattern instructions

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.
ANKEL ELEVATION:
From the right side: * Work 6-6-7-7 stitches, turn and work 6-6-7-7 stitches back - read KNITTING TIP! Work 10-10-12-12 stitches, turn and work 10-10-12-12 stitches back. Work 6-6-7-7 stitches, turn and work 6-6-7-7 stitches back. * Work 1 row over all stitches, repeat from *-* in the opposite side, beginning from the wrong side. Then work 1 row back from the wrong side over all stitches.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 34 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 8.5. In this example, knit together alternately every 7th and 8th and every 8th and 9th stitch.

KNITTING TIP: 
Every time you have turned in the middle of a row, slip 1 stitch. Tighten the strand and continue as before. There will be a hole in the piece, but this evens out after felting.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER: 
The slipper is worked back and forth in stocking stitch. You start at the top of the foot and finish at the toe.

Cast on 38-42-44-44 stitches with needle size 9 mm and 1 strand of each colour of Big Delight (= 2 strands).
ROW1 (= right side): Knit 2 together, knit 34-38-40-40 stitches, knit 2 together = 36-40-42-42 stitches.
ROW 2 (= from wrong side): Purl 2 together, purl 32-36-38-38 stitches, purl 2 together = 34-38-40-40 stitches.
ROW 3: Work ANKEL ELEVATION over the outermost stitches in each side - see description above! REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!

Work 4 rows over all stitches, AT THE SAME TIME on the first row decrease 4-4-4-2 stitches evenly on row - read DECREASE TIP = 30-34-36-38 stitches. Work 2 rows over all stitches.

NOW INCREASE TO HEEL AS FOLLOWS:
From the right side: * Work 10-10-11-12 stitches, turn and work 9-9-10-11 stitches back, work 2 stitches in the last stitch on the row. Work 6-6-7-7 stitches, turn and work 5-5-6-6 stitches back, work 2 stitches in the last stitch on the row. Work 1 row over all stitches *, work from *-* in the opposite side, starting from the wrong side.
Work from *-* 2 more times (= a total of 3 times) in each side = 42-46-48-50 stitches.

NOW DECREASE TO HEEL AS FOLLOWS:
Work the next row as follows:
* Work 10-10-11-12 stitches, turn and work 8-8-9-10 stitches back, work the last 2 stitches together. Work 6-6-7-7 stitches, turn and work 4-4-5-5 stitches back, work the last 2 stitches together. Work 1 row over all stitches *, work from *-* in the opposite side, starting from the wrong side.
Work from *-* 2 more times (= a total of 3 times) in each side = 30-34-36-38 stitches.

NOW WORK FOOT AS FOLLOWS: 
Insert 1 marker thread in the outermost stitch on one side – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Continue stocking stitch AT THE SAME TIME as you decrease from the right side on top of foot as follows: Work 8-8-9-10 stitches, knit together the next 2 stitches, work until there are 10-10-11-12 stitches left, knit together the next 2 stitches, work to end of row, repeat the decreases every row from the right side a total of 3-3-4-4 times = 24-28-28-30 stitches. Then continue with stocking stitch without decreases until the piece measures approx.19-21-25-29 cm, measured from the marker thread.

DECREASE TO TOE AS FOLLOWS: 
Decrease 3-4-4-4 stitches evenly on the next row from the right side. Repeat the decreases every row from the right side a total of 4-4-4-4 times = 12-12-12-14 stitches on needle. On the next row from the right side work all stitches together 2 and 2 = 6-6-6-7 stitches.
Pull the strand through the remaining stitches, tighten and fasten well.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew together mid under foot and up to the cast on edge, edge to edge (in the outermost loop of stitch), so you do not have a thick seam. 
Work another slipper in the same way.

FELTING: 
Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optic bleaches. Wash at 40 degrees with normal centrifuge, without pre-wash. After washing, shape the slippers to the right measurements while still wet. Later, wash the slippers as normal wool garments.

Bardzo proszę o wyjaśnienie "WSKAZÓWKI: Za każdym razem, gdy obracamy robótkę w środku rzędu, zdjąć 1 oczko, zacisnąć nitkę i dalej przerabiać jak wcześniej\\\"\\r\\n - nie jestem pewna w którym miejscu i i przez ile rzędów należy zdjąć 1 oczko.

DROPS Design 11.12.2018 kl. 08:55:

Witaj Grażyno! Zdejmujesz 1 oczko i zaciskasz nitkę za każdym razem, gdy obracasz robótkę gdzieś w środku rzędu, aby wykonać rząd skrócony. Tą technikę dokładnie ilustruje filmik TUTAJ. Powodzenia!

Guten Tag, Ich habe das Modell Eiger in Grösse 40/42 gestrickt und gefilzt. Leider bin ich sehr enttäuscht. Die Schuhe sind nicht nur ein bischen zu kurz, was nicht weiter schlimm wäre, sondern viel zu eng. Für kleine Füsse, die dort hineinpassen, sind sie wiederum viel zu lang. Die Proportionen des Modelles stimmen meines Achtens nicht. Schade!

DROPS Design 22.11.2018 kl. 09:13:

Liebe Frau Spillmann, war Ihre Maschenprobe vor filtzen richtig? Hier lesen Sie mehr über filzen, nehmen Sie bitte Kontakt mit Ihrem DROPS Laden auf - auch telefonisch oder per E-Mail, sie können Ihnen sicher weiterhelfen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, j'ai réalisé ces chaussons taille 35/37 pour en faire un cadeau, Après feutrage, la longueur et la hauteur obtenues sont conformes à ce qui est inscrit. Par contre, la largeur n'est pas indiquée et mes chaussons semblent très serrés. Pouvez-vous me dire quelle largeur correspond aux pointures 35/37. Et s'il existe une méthode pour élargir après feutrage. (Je n'ai pas trouver de tutoriel uniquement sur le feutrage). Merci

DROPS Design 22.10.2018 kl. 09:09:

Bonjour Nadette, vous trouverez ici toutes les informations utiles sur le feutrage. Bon tricot!

The videos "How to knit short rows with wrap (RS) (WS) are very necessary. However, they are difficult to interpret correctly for a knitter using the English method. I t seems that the intention is to make a loop around the next stitch on the RH needle, by slipping the stitch to and fro, and then when you come back to that loop, putting a twist in it around the stitch through the one that was slipped.

DROPS Design 10.05.2018 kl. 09:22:

Dear Mrs Stewart, you can also use the basic method to work the short rows, even if there might be small holes at the transitions, they will disappear when felting. Happy knitting!

Kan eg bruke Alaska til slike tova tøfler? Og hvor mye trenger eg et en Herre str?

DROPS Design 25.02.2018 kl. 00:19:

Hei Hege. Du kan bruke Alaska. Under Materialene finner du en link: "Vil du bruke et annet garn? Her kan du konvertere!" - Her finner du det korrekte garnforbruk i dit garn til din størrelse :) Go Fornøyelse.

Sigrid 22.02.2018 - 00:27:

Etter ankelforhøyningen står det: "Strikk 4 pinner over alle masker, SAMTIDIG på første pinne felles det 4-4-4-2 masker jevnt fordelt - les FELLETIPS = 30-34-36-38 masker. Strikk 2 pinner over alle masker." Hvorfor står det ikke bare Strikk 6 pinner over alle masker? Det blir jo det, når du først skal strikke fire pinner, så to pinner til??

DROPS Design 22.02.2018 kl. 08:54:

Hej Sigrid, Du har ret, du strikker ialt 6 pinde over alle masker. Jeg ved ikke lige hvorfor design har valgt at dele det op.... God fornøjelse!

Magdalena Lobell Berglund 22.01.2018 - 14:47:

Stickar dessa tofflor i eskimå. Kan det verkligen stämma med maskantalet? 24-30m över foten. Ser väldigt smått ut och mycket färre än andra tovade tofflor med samma Stickfasthet. Ett annat liknande mönster har tex 38m över foten (blueberry strl 35-37) och kermit jättemånga fler. Så jag blir lite undrande. Tacksam för svar.

DROPS Design 30.01.2018 kl. 11:35:

Hej Magdalena, Ja maskantalet stämmer. Du börjar överst på foten och här har du flera maskor sedan minskar du när du stickar mot tån. Lycka till :)
