You do not have to knit heels for these "socks". The top edging and the leg are sewn onto the soft sole.

With needle size 2.5 mm in stocking stitch:
32 stitches x 42 rows = 10 x 10 cm
Tip: If you have more stitches than our tension sample you need a larger needle. If you have fewer stitches than our tension sample you should choose a smaller needle, so that your tension sample matches our tension sample and the finished slipper-socks are the correct size.
Pattern for top edging:
In rounds knit (k2 p2); repeat over all the stitches in each round.
On right side rows knit; on wrong side rows purl. Knit all stitches in rounds.
Follow the chart and knit the stitch count (divisible by 4) in stocking stitch. The pattern is repeated over 4 stitches.
11 stitches x 11 rows. Begin the embroidery in the centre of the chart.
Step 1 – Knit top edging
Cast on 60 / 64 stitches in olive. Divide the stitches across 4 of the needles (16 – 14 – 14 - 16 / 17 - 15- 15 -17 stitches per needle) and close into a round.
For the top edging pattern work 2 rounds in olive and 33 rounds in white.
Begin the leg with 3 rounds of stocking stitch in white. Continue to work in the Jacquard pattern in white, cyclamen and olive. Knit rounds 1 - 13 of the chart once. Then knit a further 3 rounds in stocking stitch in white.
Step 2 – Knit leg
Place 32 / 34 stitches from the 4th and 1st needles on the stitch holder.
Transfer the 28 / 30 stitches from the 2nd and 3rd needles together onto one needle and knit 10 / 11.5 cm in rows in stocking stitch.
Step 3 – Knit toe
Next row: Slip the first stitch, knit the second stitch and draw the slipped stitch over (the decrease slants towards the left). Knit all but the last 2 stitches. Knit the last 2 stitches together (the decrease slants towards the right).
Repeat this row another 6 times for size 27 - 29 and another 7 times for size 30 - 32.
Leave the remaining 14 stitches on the stitch holder.
Step 4 – Knit border
Divide the stitches from the 1st and 4th needles from the stitch holder evenly over two needles. From each edge stitch on the foot pick up 1 stitch. Divide the stitches for the toe evenly on the needles in the same way. Next, knit 10 rounds garter stitch (= purl 1 round and knit 1 round alternately).
Step 5 – Cast off stitches
Cast off all stitches loosely.
Tip: If you are afraid that your casting off will be too tight, cast off using a needle at least two sizes larger than the needles you are working with.
Step 6 – Embroider the flower
Measure the centre of the foot and mark it with a stitch marker.
Embroider the embroidery pattern in backstitch in cyclamen and olive. The stitch marker marks the centre of the embroidery.
Sew up the loose threads.
Step 7 – Prepare the sole
Pin the finished shoe securely to the sole.
Step 8 – Sewing on the soles
Sew the soles in cross stitch in olive.
Turn the top edging to the right side.
Use the same method to work the second slipper-sock.
