MAKE TWO.

Using long tail cast on methos, cast on 30 stitches. (Leave at least 30 cm tail, we are going to use it to sew the heel)

Row 1: sel s, k1, p3, k1, p3, k12, p3, k1, p3, k1, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, p1, ppc, p1, ppc, p1, k10, p1, ppc, p1, ppc, p1, sel s.

Row 5: sel s, k1, p2, turn the next stitch and purl it, k1, p2, turn the next stitch and purl it, k12, p2, turn the next stitch and purl it, k1, p2, turn the next stitch and purl it, k1, sel s. Check my video tutorial where I am showing and explaining why we need to turn the stitch.

Repeat rows 2-5 until you reach desired slipper length. For the size 7 I knitted from the beginning 45 rows.

Bind off all stitches and at the same time decrease 5 stitches. k2tog twice at the very beginning and at the end and once more in the center. Check video tutorial for more instructions.

Cut the yarn leaving at least 50 cm tail.

Fold the sock in half facing it right side out and start seaming the heel using the tail we left at the beginning. If you want to make the slipper to fit even better, thread the tail trough last 6 stitches (3 sts on the right side, 3 sts on the left side), and pull tight close the hole. The same what you usually do to close the hat’s top. Weave in end and cut the yarn. Check video tutorial of how to join toes and top part. Weave in end.
