NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here.

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

PICOT EDGE (back and forth on needle):
ROW 1 (= right side): Knit all stitches.
ROW 2 (= wrong side): Knit all stitches. 
ROW 3 (= right side): Knit until there are 4 stitches left, these are worked as follows: Knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, in each of the last 2 stitches work 2 stitches = 2 new stitches on needle.
ROW 4 (= wrong side): Slip 1 stitch, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over, knit 1 and pass the back stitch on the right needle over the front, 2 stitches now decreased - then knit to end of row.
Repeat rows 1 - 4.

The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle.

Cast on 26-28-30 stitches with circular needle size 6 mm and Eskimo. Work GARTER STITCH – see description above, AT THE SAME TIME as you work PICOT EDGE – see description above, over the last 4 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When you have worked a total of 37-39-41 ridges (i.e. 74-78-82 rows, the piece measures approx. 28-30-32 cm) cast off.

Knit up 1 stitch in each ridge along the long side without the picot edge = 37-39-41 stitches. Work 2 ridges, then knit 1 row from the right side.
The next row is worked as follows - from the wrong side. Work the first 14-14-15 stitches and place on a thread, increase 1 stitch, work the next 9-11-11 stitches, increase 1 stitch, work the last 14-14-15 stitches and place these 14-14-15 stitches on a thread. Cut the strand. Continue working garter stitch over the middle 11-13-13 stitches. When top piece measures 7-8½-10 cm cast off the 1 edge stitch in each side = 9-11-11 stitches, place stitches on a thread. Cut the strand. Work the next row as follows (= from the right side): Work stitches from the threads AT THE SAME TIME as you knit up 12-14-16 stitches on each side of the top piece inside the 1 edge stitch = 61-67-73 stitches. THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE! Insert 1 marker thread mid front of toe. Continue with garter stitch back and forth to finished length. When piece measures 2 cm, knit 2 together on each side of the marker thread. Repeat the decrease every 2nd row – AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 4-4-5 cm knit 2 stitches together inside the 1 edge stitch in each side of the piece, repeat the decrease in the sides every 2nd row (= a total of 4 stitches decreased every 2nd row). When piece measures 5-5-6 cm place stitches on a thread. Work another slipper in the same way.

Divide the stitches between 2 needles (= mid under foot), lay double and sew together lengthwise with grafting stitches.
Sew the slipper mid back and up the leg – sew in the outermost loop of outermost stitch, so that the seam will not show when folding down the top part towards the right side.

What is your eskimo group E yarn comparable to in US weight yarns is it a bulky? Super bulky, chunky??

DROPS Design 12.04.2018 kl. 02:14:

Dear Debbie, the DROPS Eskimo yarn can be considered "super-bulky" in teh US yarn-weight system. There is 50 meters in a 50 gramm skein, and we suggest using about 8 mm thick needles. Don not forget however, that eveyone knits slightly difefrently, therefore it is very important to always knit a swatch, wash it and check your gauge, and change needle sizes if necessary. Happy Crafting!
