Star Stitch Slipper Boots

Star Stitch Slipper Boots


MATERIALS
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight. I used Redheart Supersaver. I am not sure how much I used as I bought the larger skeins and only used a small amount of both colors.
Hook: 5.00 mm
Size: Will fit a 9 to 9.5 inch foot. For a smaller size I would try using a 4.50 mm hook and for larger sizes I would try using a 5.50 mm or 6.00 mm hook.


Gauge: 4 sc = 1 inch, 3 rows of sc = 1 inch


Abbreviations used:
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
    hdc - half double crochet
Rnd - Round

How To Make the Star Stitches for this pattern:
(Note: I go through the "loop under the top loops" of the hdc. See my blog post at http://suescrochetknit.blogspot.ca/2014/01/the-star-stitch.html for a photo of where to find that loop. You could go through the top loops if you want, but I think it looks better if done through the loop under the top loops)

Starting Star Stitch: For this pattern you will make the starting star stitch this way. This is the first star stitch of each round, after you make the hdc which each Rnd starts with, ch 2, insert hook into the 2nd chain, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook the same stitch where you made the hdc, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the next st of the Rnd, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on the hook. yarn over hook and pull through the loop on your hook to close the star stitch (this will form an "eye").

The normal Star Stitches: Insert hook into the eye of previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into the same place where you made the 5th st of the previous star stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, then through each of the next 3 sts pulling up a loop in each one, yarn over and pull through all 6 sts on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the loop on your hook (same as doing a ch1) to close the eye of the star stitch.
