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.

Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On next round knit yarn over twisted to avoid a hole.

The piece is worked in the round, from the toe backwards, then worked back and forth over heel. The piece is sewn together mid back and mid front of toe afterwards.

Cast on 28 stitches with double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and Lima. Knit 1 round and insert 1 marker in the first and 15th stitch (= the sides). Continue with stockinette stitch AT THE SAME TIME on the next round increase 1 stitch on each side of both markers (= 4 stitches increased on round) - read INCREASE TIP! Repeat the increase in each side every 2nd round 3-4-4 more times, then increase 1 stitch before each marker (= 2 stitches increased on round) 0-0-1 time = 44-48-50 stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue with stockinette stitch until the piece measures 13-14-15½ cm / 5"-5½"-6 1/4''.
Now work 2 RIDGES in the round - see description above, AT THE SAME TIME as you insert a marker mid top of foot after the first 11-12-13 stitches. Cut the strand.
Start after the marker and work GARTER STITCH back and forth - see description above. Bind off when piece measures approx. 26-28½-31½ cm / 10 1/4"-11 1/4"-12 3/8'' (leave a strand end of approx. 20 cm / 8'', this is used for assembly).

Fold the bind-off edge double and sew together mid back - sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so the seam is not thick.
Sew together the hole at front of toe with grafting stitches - sew the 14 stitches on top of foot to the 14 stitches under the foot.

Work another slipper in the same way.

Put the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes or optic bleaches. Wash at hot 40C/104F degrees with normal centrifuge but without pre-wash. Afterwards, put the slippers on and shape them to the right measurements while they are still wet. Later wash as normal wool garment.

Jag krånglade till det mer än nödvändigt. Nu förstår jag monteringen 😀.

Hei Anna. Så bra at du fikk det til. Tips til neste gang: om du velger å stille "spørsmål" istedet for en "kommentar" ser vi spørsmålet ditt raskere. God fornøyelse

Hej, jag förstår inte monteringsanvisningen. Kan ni beskriva lite närmare för jag får inte ihop min till en toffla som på bilden.

Skal tåen stikkes i glatstrik, som der står i opskriften, eller skal hele tøflen strikkes i retstrik inden inden den filtes?

Hej Freja, ja vi har strikket tåen i glatstrik, du kan se det på billedet. Men vælger du at strikke hele tøflen i retstrik så gør du bare det. God fornøjelse!
