Nelle Slippers Crochet Pattern

These slippers are pretty and elegant.  

I know sometimes working with Drops' patterns is difficult, because they do not state the weight of their yarn required.  All of their yarns have names and a yarn group letter, so if you don't have access to their yarns, this can be difficult.  To get a better idea, go to their comparison chart, here they give you the gauge information, you can play around with your own yarn and hooks until you get the tension correct!

US: 5/6½ - 7½/9 - 9½/10½ ,
Foot length: 22-24-27 cm / 8¾”-9½”-10½”

Materials:  DROPS NEPAL from Garnstudio, 150-150-150 g color no 0100, off white
