The slippers are worked starting with the leg ribbing, onto the top of the foot, then the sides of the
foot, finishing with the sole.

st from each side on a holder and work the middle 14 st as follows: 1 st reverse st st, st number 11
then sts 1 to 11 from the small diamonds charts and 1 st reverse st st. Work for 16 rows (ie rows 1
to 14 then rows 1 and 2 of the chart) to make the top of the foot. Put these sts on a holder.
Work the 12 right sts left in waiting, pick up and knit 14 st on the 1st side of the top of the foot to
the st st, + 12 st of the 14 center sts, the first and last st will be cast off, + 14 st on the second side
of the foot + the 12 st on the left side in waiting = 64 st. Work in st st for 9 rows.

12th st together with the first st left on hold.
