Men's Camping slippers



Things you will need:
24 peg loom & loom hook
Stitch markers or blue masking tape
Row counter
Scissor
A Yarn needle
Mark pegs 1-24
2 strands of Worsted weight yarn of each color. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn colors. Buff for the cuff color & Coffee for the rest of the slipper.
Techniques you'll need to know:
How to ewrap knit
How to purl
How to work a short row heel

Pattern:

Cuff:
Place slip knot on peg 1, ewrap cast on 1 to peg 24 in a flat panel method. I don't count this as a row. Row 1 ewrap knit.
Row 2 purl
Row 3 ewrap knit
Row 4 purl
Row 5 ewrap knit
Row 6 purl
Row 7 ewrap knit
Row 8 purl
Row 9 ewrap knit
Row 10 purl
Row 11 ewrap knit
Row 12 purl
Before the next row, pick up the first row of stitches and place them back on the pegs. Just like making a brim. Every peg should have 2 loops on them except the peg where the yarn is coming from. Now row 13 ewrap knit back to peg 1. Just like a making a brim of a hat, lift both loops over the pegs.

Foot part:
Ewrap knit 2 rows. Next row & heel. (I used the short row heel method from pegs 6 to 18. I didn't lift & slip stitches off the pegs. you can if you want. I do hear it makes it tighter heal per my friend Cathi. (She tested this pattern for me.) Row 3 Ewrap knit pegs 2 to 18. (Decreasing heel) Wrap around peg 18, so peg 18 will have 2 loops on it. Knit to peg 6 wrap around peg 6, so peg 6 will have 2 loops on it. Knit to peg 17. Wrap around peg 17, so peg 17 will have 2 loops on it. Knit to peg 7. Wrap around peg 7, so peg will have 2 loops on it. Knit to peg 16. Wrap around peg 16, so peg 16 will have 2 loops on it.) Knit to peg 8. Wrap around peg 15, so peg 15 will have 2 loops on it. Knit to peg 9. Wrap around peg 9 ewrap (increasing heel ) Knit to peg 15. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 15.) Ewrap knit back to peg 9. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 9.) Ewrap knit back to peg 16. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 16.) Ewrap knit back to peg 8. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 8.) Ewrap knit back to peg 17. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 17.) Ewrap knit back to peg 7. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 7. Ewrap knit back to peg 18. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 18.) Ewrap knit back to peg 6. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 6.)

Stabilizing the heel:
Pick up the previous stitches from on pegs 6 and 18 and place them on the adjacent pegs next to them 5 and 19.
This Picture is showing you what stitch to pick up on each side.
Ewrap Knit around to peg 1. (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 19.) That's completing row 3 and the heel.

Start ewrap knitting in the round again (Treating Wrap both loops as one on peg 5) as long as you may need. I made mine 30 rows because I wanted them roomy. You could also use a ruler to measure the slipper or after 15-20 rows you can slip your foot into the slipper to see how far you need to go.

Closing the slipper:
I used the gathering cast off method. Just like you would close a hat.
