INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

STRIPES:
* 1 ridge red, 1 ridge light gray *, repeat from *-*.

DECREASE TIP:
To calculate how to decrease evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 78 stitches) and divide stitches by number of decreases to be done (e.g. 7) = 11.1.
In this example knit approx. every 10th and 11th stitch together.
----------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPER:
Work entire slipper back and forth on needle and sew together mid back and mid under foot. Work leg and middle piece on top of foot sideways, then pick up stitches around the entire slipper and work foot downwards.

LEG AND MIDDLE PIECE:
Cast on 17-18-19 stitches on needle size 4 mm / US 6 with light gray. Work in GARTER STITCH (back and forth) - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When 18-19-19 ridges have been worked, piece measures approx. 9½-10-10 cm / 4''. On next row from right side, cast on 15-17-23 stitches at the end of row = 32-35-42 stitches. Knit 1 row from wrong side. Insert 1 marker in the piece. Work 10-12-14 ridges back and forth over all stitches from marker (piece measures approx. 15½-17-18 cm / 6 1/8"-6 3/4"-7''). Knit 1 row from right side. At the beginning of next row (wrong side) bind off 15-17-23 stitches = 17-18-19 stitches. Insert another marker in piece. Then work 18-19-19 ridges back and forth from last marker. There are 48-52-54 ridges in total and piece measures approx. 25-27-28 cm / 9 3/4"-10½"-11'' from cast-on edge.

FOOT:
Now pick up stitches along edge on slipper, i.e. work next row as follows from right side with light gray: bind off the first 17-18-19 stitches on needle (= mid back on slipper), continue without cutting the yarn, i.e. pick up 1 stitch in each of the 18-19-19 ridges along edge on leg, pick up 1 stitch in each of the 15-17-23 stitches along middle piece, pick up 1 stitch in the corner, pick up 1 stitch in each of the 10-12-14 ridges at the front on middle piece, pick up 1 stitch in the corner, pick up 1 stitch in each of the 15-17-23 stitches along middle piece and pick up 1 stitch in each of the 18-19-19 ridges along edge on leg = 78-86-100 stitches on needle. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Knit 1 row from wrong side. Continue in garter stitch back and forth over all stitches and work at the same time STRIPES – see explanation above. When foot measures 5-5-6 cm / 2''-2''-2½'', decrease 7 stitches evenly on next row from right side - read DECREASE TIP. Decrease like this every 4th row (i.e. every other row from right side) 3 times in total in all sizes = 57-65-79 stitches. When foot measures 8-8-9 cm / 3"-3"-3½'', bind off all stitches by knitting from right side.
Fold the slipper double and sew leg together mid back and continue seam mid under foot - sew edge to edge in outer loop of edge stitch to avoid a chunky seam. Knit another slipper the same way.
