Putting your slippers together.

Take your large square and place it wrong side up in a diamond shape. Lay your square made with yarn A and B right side up lining the top corners up. Using yarn C, join the top corners of both squares together and ch1.

You now want to start joining your squares together. Line your stitches up and work 1dc along to the 1st ch2 sp. Fold over the side of the bottom square to line the stitches up to the top square. Work 1dc along to the next ch2 sp.

Fold over the other side and continue to work 1dc in each stitch round back to where you started. Ss to top of first dc st to join. cast off and weave in the ends.

Take your last 2 squares and position them as shown below. Using yarn A line up the stitches and 1dc along ach side to join the squares onto the sole.

Line up the sides of the back squares to make the heel. Using yarn D and a darning needle. Sew the 2 squares together up to the top edge. Alternatively you can crochet 1dc in each stitch as before. Cast off and weave in the ends.

RIGHT FOOT: Join yarn C to the bottom of the heel as shown below. Work 1dc in each st up to the last 3tr cluster, Ch 20 and ss back into the same st to make button loop. Continue to work 1dc in each st round (work 2dc on each corner sp) till you get to the other side of the slipper as shown below, ss to join to the sole, cast off and weave in the ends.

LEFT FOOT: Join yarn C to the bottom of the heel as shown below. Work 1dc in each st up to 1st corner (2dc in corner sp) 1dc along the top edge, (2dc In corner sp) 1dc to bottom of first tr cluster. Ch 20 and ss back into the same st to make button loop. Continue to work 1dc in each st as shown below, ss to join to the sole, cast off and weave in the ends.
