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.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Choose diagram for your size.

Piece is worked in the round from mid under foot and up to leg. Round starts mid back. Cast on 38-42-46 (58-66) stitches on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Lima. Insert 1 marker after 19-21-23 (29-33) stitches in piece (= mid front). Knit 1 round. Then increase as follows:
ROUND 1: Knit 1, 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remain before marker mid front, 1 yarn over, knit 2 (marker is in the middle of these stitches), 1 yarn over, knit until 1 stitch remains, 1 yarn over, knit 1 (= 4 stitches increased).
ROUND 2: Knit all stitches, work yarn overs twisted; they should not make holes.
Repeat 1st and 2nd round 3 times in total = 50-54-58 (70-78) stitches. REMEMBER THE GAUGE!
Knit 2 rounds. Purl 1 round. The sole is now done and continue to work pattern over all stitches as follows:
Work A.1a (= 25-27-29 (35-39) stitches), (marker mid front), work A.2a (= 25-27-29 (35-39) stitches). Continue pattern in the round like this. When A.1a and A.2a have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 40-44-48 (52-60) stitches on needle. Then work A.1b over A.1a and A.2b over A.2a. Repeat A.1b and A.2b vertically until piece measures 7-9-12 (12-14) cm. Work A.1c over A.1b and A.2c over A.2b = 44-48-52 (56-64) stitches. Then work rib as follows: Work A.1d over A.1c and A.2d over A.2c. When piece measures 13-16-20 (21-24) cm (2 cm now remain), work 2 holes for ties in the side as follows: Work 7-9-9 (11-11) stitches as before, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over (= 1 hole), work 2 stitches as before, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over (= 1 hole), work as before the rest of round. Continue with rib as before, do not work yarn overs twisted, they should make holes. When piece measures 15-18-22 (23-26) cm/6"-7"-8 3/4" (9"-10 1/4"), bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Make sure to avoid a tight bind-off edge, bind off with 1 larger needle size if needed. Sew the slipper together under foot, sew in the outermost part of the outermost stitch. Work 1 more slipper, when making holes for the ties make them at the end of round. I.e.: Work as before until 13-15-15 (17-17) stitches remain, knit 2 stitches together, 1 yarn over, knit 2, knit 2 stitches together, 1 yarn over and work as before the rest of round.

Cut 2 lengths Lima of approx. 1 meter/1.2 yds. Twine the strands together until they resist, fold the strands double so that they twine. Make a knot at each end. Fold rib approx. half way down and thread tie through holes, tie a bow. Make 1 tie for each slipper.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= knit
= purl
= slip 2 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= slip 2 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, do not work yarn over twisted on next round; it should make a hole
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, work yarn over twisted on next round; it should not make a hole
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over
= slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2, pass slipped stitch over
= no stitch

Ich verstehe leider in der Anleitung nicht was das mit der "Keine Masche" zu tun hat. Ist die einfach mitgeschtrickt oder einfach abheben? Liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 25.09.2018 kl. 09:10:

Liebe Erika, man strickt hier einen kleinen Zopf über 2/3 M: bei der 1. Reihe wird 1 M abgehoben, 2 M re gestrickt und die abgehobene Masche über die gestrickte Masche übergezogen = es sind jetzt nur 2 Maschen übrig. Bei der 2. Reihe stricken Sie: 1 M. re, 1 Umschlag, 1 M re = 3 M wieder. Siehe auch Video unten. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Janne Haugen 23.09.2018 - 22:20:

Jeg kan ikke se at det står forklart hvordan den svarte ruten i mønsteret skal strikkes...

DROPS Design 24.09.2018 kl. 07:37:

Hei Janne. Den sorte ruten står helt nederst i symbolforklaringen og betyr at det er ikke er noen maske (pga felling forrige omgang) så gå bare videre til neste symbol. Altså hopp over den ruten. God fornøyesle.

Aldeles nydelig tøfler! Eneste problemet jeg fikk var for lite garn. Jeg trodde garnmengden i oppskriften skulle være nok til begge tøflene. Jeg har strikket en tøffel i størrelse 6-9 mnd, og brukte 26 gram av garnet.

Blanchette 01.09.2018 - 20:47:

Pourquoi dans la légende du diagramme il y a un carré tout et cela dit pas de maille ?

DROPS Design 02.09.2018 kl. 08:48:

Bonjour Blanchette. Le carré noir c’est une maille diminuée au rang précédent. Donc il n’y a pas de maille ici et vous tricotez la maille suivante sur l’aiguille comme le carré suivant dans le diagramme. Bon tricot!

Pussot Léa 23.07.2018 - 13:30:

Bonjour, quand il est noté "jusqu'a ce que l'ouvrage mesure 7 cm", est ce 7 cm de diagramme fantaisi ou 7cm avec la semelle en jersey y compris ? Merci pour votre première réponse.

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 14:35:

Bonjour Mme Pussot, on mesure ici depuis le rang de montage. Bon tricot!

Wilmo 21.07.2018 - 15:59:

Pussot: il n'y a pas de rangs envers, on tricote en rond, on est toujours sur l'endroit de l'ouvrage.

Pussot 21.07.2018 - 11:36:

Bonjour, sur le diagramme de points fantaisies les rangs envers sont ils représentés ? Merci

DROPS Design 23.07.2018 kl. 07:45:

Bonjour Mme Pussot, tous les rangs sont représentés dans le diagramme, toutefois, les chaussons se tricotent en rond, le diagramme va ainsi également se tricoter en rond: lisez tous les rangs du diagramme de droite à gauche à chaque tour, en commençant en bas à droite. Bon tricot!

Leena-Mari 06.07.2018 - 14:49:

Hei. Er det min telefon som ikke leser diagrammet eller er det en feil? Er noen ruter som ikke er forklart? Eller?

DROPS Design 06.07.2018 kl. 15:20:

Hej Leena-Mari, alle ruder skal være forklaret.. Kan du beskrive hvad du savner, så skal vi se på det? :)

Heidi 08.04.2018 - 09:09:

Jeg holder på å strikke A1b og A2b, også skal jeg strikke dette til sokken måler 12cm. Er det 12 cm fra mønsteret startet eller er det 12cm fra sålen?

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 08:11:

Hei Heidi, Det er 12 cm fra sålen. God fornøyelse!
