Bergere de France Ideal, 40% Wool/30% Acrylic/30% Polyamide, 50g/125m per ball, two balls in Vitamine (24109) (main orange colour (M)), two balls in Meije (51253)

Tapestry needle.

Size: to fit an adult woman size 39 (UK 6, US 9)

Stitches control: 24 sts x 31 rows = 10 x 10 cm.

Instructions

Using the long tail cast on method and 2.5mm needles cast on 72 sts in M, this will form the first row of knitting. Work all stitches in M until otherwise stated. The first 8 rows of the pattern are worked in a 2 x 2 rib, with the cast on row counting as ‘Row 1’.

Row 2 *k2, p2; repeat from * to end

Rows 3 to 8 repeat Row 2 Change to 3.5mm needles. To form the shape of the slipper, three sts are increased either side of the central part; there are 27 sts either side of the increase sections and 6 sts in the centre.

Row 18 purl, adding scrap yarn markers (colour A) on the 43st and 54nd stitches and scrap yarn markers (colour B) on the 59th and 70th stitches. These are a small amount of yarn tied to the instructed stitches and will be used as a guide later when placing the features.

Row 21 k27, (kfb, k7) three times, k6, (k7, kfb) three times, k27 [114 sts]

Changing colour

When changing colour either use the intarsia method or carry the yarn along the back of the piece. We carried the orange across the cream colour changes, attaching a second thread of cream yarn on the other section when needed. Be sure to keep the yarn loose or it’ll pull the piece. The contrast colour is added where the pattern changes, using M for the main colour and C for the contrast. The cream cheeks are knitted in garter st (knit on each row), however when adding the cream on the wrong side, purl it, then change to knit for the already formed cream sts, as the pattern instructs. This ensures no ‘wrong side’ garter bumps are added on the right side of the piece.

Assembly

Lay the slipper flat and place the two sides together, forming an oval. Then sew up the back seam, from the cast on edge to the cast off edge. Sew up using a mattress stitch in M. Take a front ear piece and back ear piece and place wrong sides (WS) together. Pin and sew up in a mattress stitch in M, leaving the cast on edges open. Repeat for the second ear. Take the tail and match the two edge seams WS together. Pin and sew up from the cast on edge to cast off edge using a mattress stitch in M.

Use the scrap yarn markers as a guide for placing the fox’s features. Take the first sewn up ear and place between the set of Colour A scrap markers. Pin and sew into place using M. Then repeat for the second ear, placing it between the Colour B scrap markers and sewing into place. Remove the markers.

Embroider each eye on to the face between the scrap yarn Colour D and E markers. Do this by loosely sewing a straight line in the black yarn from marker to marker, then loop it downwards to form the eye. Add small stitch at the bottom of the loop to secure it in place and weave in the loose ends. Remove the markers. Place the nose at the centre of the snout, leaving a little space at the end for your fox slippers to be sewn up. Sew into place using black yarn then weave in the loose ends.

Lay the fox slippers so the cast off edge is facing up. Then pin it together. When sewing up this seam just sew from the outer stitch of the cast off edge to the other outer cast off edge in M. Pull it tightly after a few stitches, but be careful not to pull it too tightly as the soles of your fox slippers need to stay flat and comfortable. Weave in all the loose ends.

Place the tail a third of the way down from the cast on edge on the back of the seam of the slipper. Sew into place using M and weave in the loose ends. Viola! One pair of cosy fox slippers for adults – you could make matching pairs for your cubs, too.
