MATERIALS

1 - 50g ball of Black 4 ply knitting worsted.
2 - 50g ball of White 4 ply knitting worsted.

I used white and black as it shows up better in the picture, but you can use any color combinations that you prefer.

Hook - 4.50 mm. See Charts for conversions to US and UK sizes.

My notes, are in blue.


SIZE is for a foot length of 9 to 10 inches. I don't have time right now to do patterns for different sizes, so I would suggest for larger slippers, use a larger hook size. I wouldn't go any larger than a size 6.00 mm (J-10 US). For smaller slippers, use a smaller hook. (Note: a 4.00mm hook will fit a foot length of 8 inches.) I wouldn't go any smaller than 3.75 (F-5 US) as it may be too difficult to work with. You could try a sportweight yarn with a smaller hook for even smaller sizes.
Gauge (with 4.50mm hook) - 4 sc = 1 inch, 4 rows of sc = 1 inch



Abbreviations used:
st - stitch
ch - chain
ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
beg - beginning
tog - together
How To Make 2 dc tog - Yarn over hook, insert into stitch, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on your hook. Leave these two loops on your hook. Yarn over hook insert into the next stitch, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on your hook, yarn over hook and pull through all loops on your hook.

How To Make 2 sc tog - insert your hook into the next stitch, put the yarn over your hook and pull up a loop, leaving that loop on your hook, insert your hook into the next stitch, put the yarn over your hook and pull up another loop, next put the yarn over your hook and pull through the 3 loops on your hook.

SOLE
With black yarn, ch 6.
ROW 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (7 sc) In the next rows, all stitches are through back loops only. (Throughout the pattern, ch 1 does not count in the stitch count.)
ROW 2: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 3: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 4: 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn. (13 sc)
ROW 5: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 6 to 18: Same as Row 5.
ROW 19: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (11 sc)
ROW 20: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn.
ROWS 21 to 33: Same as Row 20.
ROW 34: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (9 sc)
ROW 35: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (7 sc)
ROW 36: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (5 sc)
ROW 37: 2 sc tog, 1 sc in next 1 sts, 2 sc tog, ch 1, turn. (3 sc)
ROW 38: 3 sc tog, ch 1, turn.
Next, make 1 sc in last sc of previous row, place 1 sc at the end of each row along side of sole (don't make them too tight) (39 sc), place 6 sc across the back of the starting chain, place 1 sc at the end of each row along other side of sole (38 sc), 1 sc in same place as the starting sc of the round, ss to join to the starting sc, ch 1, (Total = 84 sc) do not turn. Now you are going to make a turning ridge - 1 ss through the front loops of each sc (don't make your ss too tight), ss to join, attach white yarn, ch 1, turn.

Row 1: Through the back loops only, 1 sc in each st, ss to join, ch 1 and turn. (84 sc)

For the rest of the pattern all your stitches will be through both loops of every stitch. 1 sc in the next 30 sts, 1 dc in next 10 sts, 2 dc tog twice, 1 dc in next 10 sts, 1 sc in next 30 sts, ss to join, ch 1 and turn. (82 sts)
