EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

-------------------------------------------------------

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At the beginning of each round of treble crochets, replace the first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches, i.e. skip the first stitch on the previous round. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.
At the beginning of each round of double crochets, replace the first double crochet with 1 chain stitch, i.e. skip the first stitch on the previous round. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 double crochet by working 2 double crochets in the same stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 2 treble crochets by working 2 and 2 treble crochets together as follows: * Work 1 treble crochet in the next double crochet, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through, work 1 treble crochet in the next double crochet in the same way, make 1 yarn over and pull it through all 3 loops on the hook *, work from *-* one more time = 2 treble crochets decreased. 

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

COLOUR PATTERN (for A.2 and A.4):
When changing colour at the beginning of a round, work the slip stitch at the end of the previous round with the new colour.
When working in the round with several colours, work as described below: 
Each time you change colour, work the last double crochet with the first colour, but wait with the last pull through, change to the next colour and work the last pull through, then work the next double crochet with the new colour. 
When working with two colours, lay the strand of the colour you are not using over the stitches from the previous round and work around the strand so that it is hidden and carried forward.
Make sure that the strand you carry forward does not tighten and is not tight when picked up from the previous round.

-------------------------------------------------------

SLIPPERS - SHORT SUMMARY OF THE PIECE:
The slipper is worked in the round from the toe to the instep, then worked back and forth to mid back of heel. The piece is crocheted together mid back before you work an edge around the opening of the slipper. To finish you make a tassel which is fastened to the side of the slipper.

SLIPPER: 
Work 5 chain stitches with hook size 4 mm and light grey and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Read CROCHET INFORMATION and work A.1 in the round: the start of the round is mid under foot. When A.1 has been completed, there are 30 stitches on the round. Change to ruby red.
The next round is worked as follows: Work A.2A (= 4 stitches), then work A.2B over the remaining stitches AT THE SAME TIME as you increase 2-6-10 double crochets evenly spaced – read INCREASE TIP = 32-36-40 double crochets on the round.
Continue A.2 like this (there is now room for 7-8-9 repeats of A.2B in addition to A.2A which is worked over the first 4 stitches). REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When A.2 has been completed, work double crochets in the round with mustard until the piece measures 12-13-15 cm (in the smallest size, you will probably reach the right measurement straight after A.2), cut the strands.
Insert 1 marker between the 2 middle stitches on the round, i.e. after the first 16-18-20 stitches on the round.
Hold the piece with the toe facing you and count 4 stitches to the left of the marker, start with 1 slip stitch in mustard in the fourth stitch from the marker and work the first row as follows from the right side: Work A.3A (= 1 stitch), work A.3B until there are 7 stitches left on the row (i.e. until there are 4 stitches left before the marker) and finish with A.3C (= 1 stitch), turn the piece. Continue with A.3, but now you decrease 1 stitch in each side by working the next row as follows: work 1 slip stitch in the first treble crochet, work double crochets until there is 1 treble crochet left on the row, turn the piece.
Now work A.3 back and forth over the remaining 24-28-32 stitches until the piece measures a total of approx. 21-23-26 cm from the toe – adjust so that the next row to be worked is a row of treble crochets, but to get the right measurement, you can, if necessary, work an extra row of double crochets before this row of treble crochets.
The next row is worked as follows: Work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 10-12-14 double crochets, now decrease 2 treble crochets by working the next 4 treble crochets together 2 and 2 – read DECREASE TIP and finally work 1 treble crochet in each of the last 10-12-14 double crochets = 22-26-30 treble crochets on the row.
Fold the slipper double, mid back, with the right side in and crochet the seam together at the back from the top down; 1 double crochet in each treble crochet (work through both layers). Cut and fasten the strand and turn the slipper inside out so that the right side is outside again. 

LEG:
Start mid back and work 40-44-48 double crochets with mustard, evenly spaced around the opening at the top of the slipper. The next round is worked as follows: Work A.4A (= 4 stitches), then work A.4B over the remaining 36-40-44 stitches (= 9-10-11 repeats of 4 stitches).
Continue the pattern like this. Cut and fasten the strands when A.4 has been completed. The leg measures approx. 3 cm in height.

TASSEL:
1 tassel = Cut 20 strands of light grey, 5 strands of ruby red and 5 strands of mustard (= a total of 30 strands) each 18 cm long.
Cut 1 strand of light grey of approx. 20 cm to use to fasten the tassel and lay this strand across the middle of the other 30 strands. Fold the 30 strands double and tie a new strand of light grey around the tassel (approx. 1 cm from the top). Fasten the strands well and then sew the tassel to one side of the slipper in the transition between leg and foot.
Work 1 more slipper in the same way and fasten a similar tassel to the opposite side.
