SPECIAL TERMS
pu-PB = Pick up in st below next left needle st (for short row turning this picked up st will appear to be emerging
from the same st below the next true LN st)
s-LN = Slip st just worked back to left needle (for short row turning)
Lacing chain = With CC, (CO 1, *yo, BO; rep from *.)
NOTES
Ballet style slippers are worked from short row heel to short row toe back and forth on double-pointed needles.
On the chart, the Os are each worked in CC from 40 of yarn on bobbins. The MC background is stranded
across the back of each O. Each O is finished on the inside by weaving the CC tail leftover into the MC strands
on the WS and tails are hidden between the woven and RS layers.
Without tying off the yarn, 1x1 ribbing is picked up onto 3 needles and worked in the round.
After ribbing is bound off an optional finishing technique is described, using the crochet hook, which closes short
row eyelet holes as it strengthens the heel and toe.

Work 1x1 ribbed finishing around foot opening with 4 dpns as follows:
Needle #1: Slip 1 st purlwise, k 6, slip next st knitwise, k2tog, BO (=minus 2 sts), k 7 = 15 front Center Front Toe
sts;
Needle #2: Skip 1st row, pick up 1 st in right side of each Foot Length row from toe to heel = 17 (23, 29) right
side sts, pick up 12 sts in beg CO at back of right side of heel = 12 (of 24) Heel sts;
Needle #3: Pick up next 12 sts in beg CO at back of left side of heel = 12 (of 24) Heel sts, pick up 1 st in left
side of each Foot Length row from heel to toe, do not pick up 1 in last side of row before sts on needle #1 = 17
(23, 29) Left Side sts.
Ribbing at foot opening =73 (85, 97) sts before working center back lacing loop.
Make back of heel loop for upper lacing.
Beg with 1st st on Needle #1: *(K 1, p 1) 22 (25, 28) times to 2 center back sts.
Make loop: *CO 1, BO; rep from * 4 times more; purl next st, BO; *(k1, p1) 14 (17, 20) times =18(24, 30) foot
opening sts.
Work 1 (2, 3) more rows of 1x1 rib for S (M, L). BO sts around. Pick up 1 st in 1st BO st, BO. If working the
optional reinforcement to close short row gaps, do not tie off.
Optional reinforcement for toe and heel
Continue from rib finish by sliding the last BO loop to the hook, work ch st: yo, pull yo through loop on hook, insert
hook at WS through back of nearest st, work slip st: insert hook into backside of st, yo, pull through st and loop on
hook, work 1 more ch and 1 more slip st. This brings the working yarn to the first eyelet gap in the left side of the
toe. Temporarily remove hook from loop on hook.
1. With hook now on RS of slipper and working yarn remaining on WS: Insert hook into next short row gap, pull up
loop, insert into turning knit st between gaps, yo on WS, pull yo through st and loop on hook. Rep this in all gaps
to the solid knit sts at center front toe. Temporarily remove hook from loop on hook. Pull loop to WS.
2. With hook and working yarn on WS of slipper: Insert hook into each purl bump work slip st, across to opposite
side toe short row gaps and rep 1.
3. .Pull loop on hook to WS as before and slip st in every other st along side (at base of picked up rib sts) until
you reach the heel gaps. Pull loop on hook to RS.
Rep steps 1, 2, and 3 to reinforce the heel and turning row gaps; tie off to inside.
Finish WS of each O
Thread tail of CC (leftover from bobbins) to yarn needle and weave through MC strands in 5 woven rows. Tie off.
Pull beg and ending tails of CC between RS O and woven layer to conceal ends.
For foot opening drawstring tie make a ch in MC of 75 (80, 85) sts. Weave this tie through ribbing beg and ending
before foot opening BO at the center back heel.
For tie lacing at back of heel make a chain in CC of 240 (250, 260) sts. Thread this tie lace midway through loop
on back of heel. This tie lacing may be criss-crossed up the calve to the knee and tied or wrapped several times
around the ankle and tied in a bow.
