EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.
The area marked with grey has already been worked; it just shows how the next round is worked in the stitches/rows.

CROCHET INFORMATION-1 (in 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 from the previous round. The round ends with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch from the beginning of the round.

COLOUR CHANGE-1:
To get a neat transition when changing colour, work the last double crochet before the colour change as follows: Insert the hook in the last stitch, pick up the strand, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through all loops on the hook. Continue with the new colour.

COLOUR CHANGE-2 (decoration):
Crochet the slip stitch at the end of the first round with the new colour.

CROCHET INFORMATION-2 (for when working back and forth):
Each row starts with 1 chain stitch; the chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet.

2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER:
* Insert the hook in the next stitch, pick up the strand *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a yarn over and pull it through all 3 loops on the hook (= 1 double crochet decreased).

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SLIPPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round from the sole and up the edge. Then a half circle is worked on top of toe; this is worked together with the edge of the sole. Then you work a band, sides/back piece back and forth and a front edge for the laces. To finish, you work a flap, decoration and twisted cord (for laces).
Be careful when changing colour as you work, and read PATTERN above.

SOLE:
The sole is worked in the round, starting mid under the sole.
Work a row of 22-24-28 chain stitches (= the area marked with grey in diagram A.1) with hook size 5 mm and black.
Then work in the round (i.e. on either side of this row of chain stitches) as follows:
Work A.1a over the first chain stitch, insert 1 marker here (= mid front of toe), work A.1b over the same chain stitch, work A.1c over the next 20-22-26 chain stitches (= 10-11-13 repeats of 2 stitches), work A.1d and A.1e over the last chain stitch, continue in the round on the opposite side of the row of chain stitches, i.e. work A.1f over these 20-22-26 chain stitches (= 10-11-13 repeats of 2 stitches). Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been completed there are 72-76-84 double crochets on the last round. Cut and fasten strand.
NOTE: If the marker has been displaced slightly, replace it so that it is mid front of toe.

EDGE OF SOLE:
The edge is worked in the round.
Start the next round in the middle of the one side of the sole, i.e. start in the 18th-19th-21st double crochet before the marker. Work towards the toe with off white as follows:
ROUND 1: Read CROCHET INFORMATION-1. Work 1 double crochet in the back loop of each double crochet.
ROUND 2: Now work normal double crochets through both loops - work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
ROUND 3: Now work half a stripe at the end of the round on the heel as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 36-38-42 double crochets, change to black – read COLOUR CHANGE-1, and work 1 double crochet in each of the last 36-38-42 double crochets.
ROUND 4: Change to off white and work 1 double crochet in each double crochet = 72-76-84 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the piece to one side.

TOP OF TOE - HALF CIRCLE:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 5 mm and off white and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Then work back and forth according to diagram A.2. When A.2 has been completed there are 20 double crochets on the last row – do not cut the strand! Insert 1 marker mid front (= 10 double crochets on each side of marker) Follow the arrow in the diagram; you are now working sideways, i.e. around the rows on A.2. Work A.3 back and forth over these stitches. When A.3 has been completed there are 7 double crochets on the last row. Change to black – the next round of assembly starts here – from the right side!

ASSEMBLY (edge of sole and half circle):
Lay the half circle onto the edge of the sole; the marker on the half circle should meet the marker mid front of edge; In other words, start in the 13th stitch before the marker on the sole, work 1 round with black through both layers as shown in diagram A.4 (= 25 double crochets and 1 chain stitch which is equivalent to 1 double crochet), continue with 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 46-50-58 double crochets on the sole = 72-76-84 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the piece to one side.

BAND:
Work a small band which later will be crocheted together with the last row on the side piece. Work back and forth with off white as follows:
ROW 1: Work 5 chain stitches, turn and work 1 double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches = 4 double crochets.
ROWS 2-9: Read CROCHET INFORMATION-2! Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet.
Cut and fasten the strand. Lay the band to one side.

SIDES/BACK PIECE:
Work a side piece back and forth from the last round on the edge. Do not work over the 18 double crochets mid front (9 double crochets on each side of the marker in front).
Work over the remaining 54-58-66 double crochets – starting from the right side as follows:
ROW 1: Remember CROCHET INFORMATION-2. Work with dark grey. Work 2 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER - read description above, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there are 2 double crochets left on the row, work 2 double crochets together (= 2 double crochets decreased).
ROW 2: Repeat row 1 = 50-54-62 double crochets.
ROW 3: Work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 19-21-25 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 19-21-25 double crochets, finish with 2 double crochets together (= 4 double crochets decreased) = 46-50-58 double crochets.
ROW 4: Repeat row 1 = 44-48-56 double crochets.
ROW 5: Work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 16-18-22 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets, 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 16-18-22 double crochets, finish with 2 double crochets together (= 4 double crochets decreased) = 40-44-52 double crochets.
ROW 6: Repeat row 1 = 38-42-50 double crochets.
ROW 7: Repeat row 1 = 36-40-48 double crochets.
ROWS 8-11: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet = 36-40-48 double crochets.
Insert 1 marker on this row – THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
ROW 12: Work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 2-1-4 double crochets, * 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 double crochets *, work from *-* a total of 6-7-8 times, finish with 2 double crochets together (= 8-9-10 double crochets decreased) = 28-31-38 double crochets.
ROW 13: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 7-7-10 double crochets, work 2 double crochets in each of the next 14-16-18 double crochets and 1 double crochet in each of the last 7-8-10 double crochets = 42-47-56 double crochets.
Then work back and forth with 1 double crochet in each double crochet until the piece measures approx. 9-10-11 cm from the marker.
The next row is worked as follows: Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 7-7-10 double crochets, work 2 double crochets together a total of 14-16-18 times, work 1 double crochet in each of the last 7-8-10 double crochets = 28-31-38 double crochets.
The next row is worked together with the band (the band is placed on the right side of the slipper) from the right side as follows:
Work 1 double crochet in each of the first 12-13-17 double crochets, fold the band in 2 and work 1 double crochet in each of the next 4 double crochets through all 3 layers, then work 1 double crochet in each of the last 12-14-17 double crochets. Do not cut the strand!

FRONT EDGE FOR LACES:
Work 1 edge down the rows where you increased/decreased as follows: Work * 2 chain stitches, skip 1 row, work 1 double crochet around the next row *, repeat from *-* along the whole diagonal edge, finish with 1 slip stitch in the last row. Cut and fasten the strand. Work 1 edge on the other diagonal side in the same way, but reversed; i.e. start at the bottom with 1 slip stitch in the first row, finish with 1 slip stitch at the top of the diagonal edge. Cut and fasten the strand.

FLAP:
Continue by working a flap back and forth in the 7 double crochets which were worked across the top of the half circle. Work with dark grey.
ROW 1: Remember CROCHET INFORMATION-2! Work 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 5 stitches, work 2 double crochets in the last double crochet = 9 double crochets.
ROW 2: Work 2 double crochets in the first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each of the next 7 stitches, work 2 double crochets in the last double crochet = 11 double crochets.
Repeat row-2, 0-1-1 time = 11-13-13 double crochets.
Then work 1 double crochet in each double crochet until the flap measures approx. 14-15-16 cm. Then work as follows: * 1 double crochet in each double crochet, turn and work 2 double crochets together, 1 double crochet in each double crochet until there are 2 double crochets left, work 2 double crochets together (= 2 double crochets decreased) *, work from *-* a total of 2 times = 7-9-9 double crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

DECORATION:
Work 3 chain stitches with off white and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.
ROUND 1: Work 2 chain stitches (= 1 half treble crochet), work 11 half treble crochets around the ring, finish with 1 slip stitch in the 2nd chain stitch, change to black – read COLOUR CHANGE-2 (decoration) = 12 half treble crochets.
ROUND 2: Work 1 chain stitch (= 1 double crochet), 1 double crochet in the first half treble crochet, work 2 double crochets in each of the remaining 11 half treble crochets = 24 double crochets.
Sew the decoration to the middle of one of the side pieces with small neat stitches.

CORD:
Work a twisted cord as follows: Cut 2 strands off-white, each 4 meters in length. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold the strands double and they will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end. Thread the cord through the chain-spaces in the same way as you would thread a running shoe and tie a bow.

Work 1 more slipper in the same way, but sew the decoration to the opposite side of the slipper.

= 1 double crochet in stitch
= 2 double crochets in same stitch
= chain-stitch ring - this is described in the text. The first row starts at the point on the circle
= 1 chain stitch
= 2 double crochets around the chain-stitch ring
= shows where to continue on the diagram
= double crochet around the outermost double crochet on the row/around the chain-stitch ring
= start here, work through both layers (= 26 double crochets)
= continue in the round with 1 double crochet in each double crochet on the edge (= 46-50-58 double crochets)
