Knitted slippers

In some countries there is a custom to give only birthday gifts made by yourself - a purchased gift is considered offensive. We do not have such a custom, but often there is a desire to give the birthday man something original, something that no one else has. It is desirable that this unique thing was not just a souvenir, but a useful object in the household. Well, what could be more useful than soft knitted slippers made of good wool? ..
 Knitted slippers
Materials required: For one pairs of medium-sized slippers (37 ... 40) will need about 200 g (up to 300 g, depending on the thickness of the thread) of high-quality wool, about 150 g of synthetic thread, 6 needles with a pointed point on both sides and a long hook.Sole It is knitted first. The basis for the calculation is the insole of the available shoes or just circled on a sheet of foot paper. The pattern can be adjusted so that the slippers do not differ on the right and left,and you can knit with this difference in mind. The number of loops gathered for the sole and the number of loops added during the knitting process may vary depending on the size of the leg and the thickness of the yarn. I got the following calculation: the needles No. 4 were taken for size 37, three synthetic threads were added to the wool - the thickness of the yarn turned out to be approximately equal to the thickness of the needles. To begin with, 10 loops were gathered (along with the edge loops), in the next even row a loop was added on each side, near the edge loops. After 10 and 20 rows, two more loops were added on each side. Then three rows - without adding, subsequent rows - with a decrease of one loop on both sides until the moment when on the spoke, along with the edge loops, 6 loops remain. After this, the loops are closed.

Knitting, as seen in the photo, the usual garter. You can knit stocking (all the odd rows - face, even - knotted loops) or other viscous. Top For tying the top along the edge of the sole dial loops (their number corresponds to the number of rows , loops of beginning and end - that is, in my case, 60 + 10 + 6 = 76).The set is made either for three or for five spokes, as shown in the photo.

Next, 15 rows are knitted with a hosiery, and then loops are diminished in the nose. This is done in this way: on each side of the four loops that were recruited from the end of the sole, in each even row (16, 18, 20 and 22 from the beginning of the knitting of the top, respectively), three loops are connected together. Odd ranks fit without subtraction.

After the 23rd row, the spokes are alternately replaced with a long crochet, as shown in the photo, and a cord or ribbon is pulled through them - they will be fastened top slipper, allowing you to adjust its tightening for the completeness of the foot.

Result On the finished slippers we hide all tails with a hook , we pull them to to give the desired shape. After that, it is very good to wash them in cool water and dry them on the shoe. If the product turned out more than necessary, not scary - we wash it in VERY hot water, and, carefully straightening and stretching it with our hands, dry it again on the block.Slippers "sit down", knit in shape. The gift is ready!
