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

EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At the beginning of each round/row of single crochets, replace the first single crochet with 1 chain stitch, i.e. skip the first stitch on the previous round/row. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

INCREASE TIP:
Work 2 single crochets in same single crochet.

COLOR CHANGE:
When changing colors at the beginning of a round, work the slip stitch at the end of the previous round with the new color.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

SLIPPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked in the round, from the toe to the instep, with ears. Then you work back and forth over the heel. You work an edge with antlers around the opening. Eyes and nose are worked separately and fastened to the slipper to finish.

TOE WITH EARS:
Work 3 chain stitches with hook size 6 mm = US J/10 and light beige and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Start of round = mid under foot.
ROUND 1: Work 7-7-8 single crochets around the ring - read CROCHET INFORMATION!
ROUND 2: Work 2 single crochets in each single crochet = 14-14-16 single crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 single crochet in the first single crochet, 2 single crochets in the next single crochet *, work from *-* to end of round = 21-21-24 single crochets.
ROUND 4: Work 1 single crochet in each single crochet at the same time as you increase 3-3-4 single crochets evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 24-24-28 single crochets.
Change to tan – read COLOR CHANGE and work 1 single crochet in each single crochet until you have worked 7-8-10 rounds with tan (= a total of 11-12-14 rounds). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Do not cut the strand, but work the ears as follows:

EARS:
ROUND 1 (round with ears): Work 1 single crochet in each of the first 9-9-11 single crochets. Work * 6 chain stitches, turn and work back in these chain stitches as follows: 1 half double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, 1 double crochet in the next chain stitch, 1 treble crochet in the next chain stitch, 1 double crochet in the next chain stitch, 1 half double crochet in the last chain stitch * (= ear). Work 1 single crochet in each of the next 6-6-6 single crochets (= mid top of foot), work from *-* 1 more time (= ear) and then work 1 single crochet in each of the last 9-9-11 single crochets.
ROUND 2: Work 1 single crochet in each single crochet; make sure the ears lie to the front while you work. The piece now measures approx. 11-12-13 cm = 4 3/8”-4 3/4”-5 1/8”.
Cut and fasten the strand.

HEEL:
Now divide the piece and work back and forth with tan. Start working in the 16th-16th-18th single crochet from the beginning of the round (i.e. the beginning of the round is now on the side of the foot). Work 1 single crochet in each of the next 18-18-22 single crochets (= 6 single crochets mid top of foot are not worked). Work back and forth with 1 single crochet in each single crochet until the piece measures 22-24-27 cm = 8 3/4”-9 1/2”-10 5/8”. Fold the slipper and lay flat; crochet together mid back with a row of single crochets through both layers from the wrong side. Cut and fasten the strand.

EDGE WITH ANTLERS:
Work an edge around the opening of the slipper with dark brown, at the same time as you work antlers on round 2.
ROUND 1: Start mid back of heel and work the next round as follows: Work 10-11-14 single crochets evenly spaced on the rows on the first side, 1 single crochet in each of the 6 single crochets mid front, 10-11-14 single crochets evenly spaced on the rows on the next side = 26-28-34 single crochets on the round.
ROUND 2 (round with antlers): Work 1 single crochet in each of the first 10-11-14 single crochets. Work * 4 chain stitches, turn and work back over these chain stitches as follows: 1 single crochet and 1 half double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, 1 slip stitch in the next chain stitch, 3 chain stitches, 1 single crochet and 1 half double crochet in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, 1 slip stitch in the next chain stitch and work 1 slip stitch in the last of the 4 chain stitches * (= antler). Work 1 single crochet in each of the next 6-6-6 single crochets (mid top of foot), work from *-* 1 more time (= antler) and then work 1 single crochet in each of the last 10-11-14 single crochets. Cut and fasten the strand.

EYES:
Work 3 chain stitches with hook size 6 mm = US J/10 and dark brown (leave a strand end of approx. 10 cm = 4” for use in assembly), 1 double crochet in the first chain stitch worked, change to off white and work 4 chain stitches, 1 slip stitch in the chain stitch at the bottom of the double crochet, work 4 chain stitches and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch worked with off white. Cut the strand (leave a strand end of approx. 10 cm = 4” for use in assembly). Fasten the strands which will not be used in assembly. Work 1 more eye. Fasten the eyes to the front of the slipper – place them so that there are 2 rounds of tan over the eyes and approx. 1 cm = 3/8” between each eye.

NOSE:
Make a pom pom with red, of approx. 5 cm = 2” in diameter and fasten it mid front of slipper – place it between the rounds of light beige and tan.

Work the other slipper in the same way.
