EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.
Section marked with grey has already been worked, it only shows how next round should be worked in stitches.

COLOUR CHANGE.
To get a nice transition between the colour changes, work last double crochet before changing colour as follows: Insert hook in last stitch, get yarn in new colour, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through all loops on hook. Continue with the new colour.

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

SLIPPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round from middle of sole and upwards on foot. Note the colour changes along the way, and read PATTERN.

SOLE:
Work the sole in the round, begin mid under sole.
work a chain stitch row of 17-19-23 chain stitches (= area marked with grey in diagram A.1) on hook size 7 mm with red.
Then work in the round (i.e. on each side of this chain stitch row) as follows: (Beginning of round = mid back on heel) work A.1a over the first 2 chain stitches, work A.1b over the next 13-15-19 chain stitches, work A.1c over the last 2 chain stitches, work in the round on opposite side of chain stitch row, i.e. work A.1d over the first 2 chain stitches, work A.1e over the next 13-15-19 chain stitches and finish with A.1f over the last 2 chain stitches = 34-38-46 double crochets after first round. Continue this pattern. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been worked, there are 51-55-63 double crochets on last round. Sole measures approx. 27-29-33 cm in length.

FOOT:
Continue from mid back on heel with dark grey, and work next round as follows: Work A.2a over the first 4 stitches, repeat A.2b over the next 13-15-19 stitches, work A.2c over the next 17 stitches, repeat A.2d over the next 13-15-19 stitches and finish with A.2e over the last 4 stitches. Continue until entire diagram A.2 has been worked vertically – switch colours as explained in diagram = 41-45-53 double crochets on last round.
Work A.3a over first stitch, repeat A.3c over the next 12-14-18 stitches, work A.3b over the next 15 stitches, repeat A.3c over the remaining 13-15-19 stitches. Continue until entire diagram A.3 has been worked vertically – switch colours as explained in diagram = 33-37-45 double crochets on last round. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Work the other slipper the same way.

FELTING:
Place the slippers in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 degrees with normal spin but no pre-wash. Put on the slipper and shape it to the correct size while it is still wet. At subsequent wash, wash the slippers at regular wool programme.
