Continue to work until the length comes down to your heal when stretched.
Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing the back seam. Fold heal area in half and sew together. Sew in the toe loose end. Turn slipper right side out.
Edging – Working across end of rows, join with sc at heel, sc in end of each dc row, 2 sc in each of the corners at the front. Join with ss at end of first round. Repeat for a 2nd round.
Contrast edging. Join yarn at heel, continue to work as per edging, depending on thickness of your contrast yarn (2 sc may look better if it is a thinner wool or you could do hdc) see what it looks like. I did 2 rows of sc edging using the eyelash wool. Fasten off and thread in ends.
