Using chunky/bulky yarn and a 4.50 mm hook
rnd 1: 7 hdc in 3rd ch, sl st to 1st hdc (to creat a circle!)
*all stitches in back loops from now on unless otherwise specified*
rnd 2: ch 2, 2 dc in each st, sl st
rnd 3: ch 2, *1dc, 2 dc* to end, sl st
rnd 4-9: *ch 2, 1dc in each, sl st* for 6 rows.(if you want a maryjane/ballet look, do less of this, and compensate in the next section of the slipper.)
rnd 10: ch 2, 1 dc in each, leave 5 sts unworked
rnd 11: ch 2, 1 dc in each to end of row in Front loops ( to keep all the same way)
rnd 12: ch 2, 1 dc in each in Back loops
rnd 13: ch 2, 1 dc in each to end of row in Front loops
rnd 14: ch 2, 1 dc in each in Back loops
rnd 15: ch 2, 1 dc in each to end of row in Front loops
rnd 16: ch 2, 1 dc in each in Back loops
rnd 17: ch 2, in front loops: 1dc in next 6 sts, 1hdc in next 2 sts, 1sc in 4 sts 1hdc in next 2 sts, 1 dc in 6 sts to end of row.
leaving hole for heel to sew up after, join to top edge around ankle.
ch 1, sc around edge, sl st at end.
leaving extra long tail (i left more than 20 inches,
but you probably don’t need so much), cut yarn. thread tail on to yarn needle and sew heel closed. make sure it is secure and then weave in the ends. You could also close the heel using sc or slip stitches if you don’t have a yarn needle.
