These slippers begin with the heel, which is worked flat. Then, the piece is folded and joined in the round for the foot. The toe is shaped with basic decreases and Kitchener stitch is used to graft the toes. The back of the heel is sewn together using mattress stitch. Stitches are then picked up along the top of the heel and a folded cuff is worked flat. The side edges of the cuff create a front split and the doubled fabric is closed using mattress stitch. A slip stitch crochet edging is used along the front of the front of the foot. Finally, the contrast color is used to smock the cables
