Hello, I am doing this baby booties project for my 4-month-old niece.
This is the link of the pattern:
The expected sole length would be 9cm, so I casted on 28 stitches and worked from there last night. Everything was just fine until I reach the Strap section this morning. After casting on 12 stitches for the strap, the pattern says that I have to turn then ssk. However, the ssk undid the cast-on stitches. I am using knit-on cast on technique, maybe that’s why?
My questions are:
- On the Shape Top section Row 5: k7 and slip to stitch holder, bind off the next 7sts, k2, then bind off the next 7sts. 7+7+2+7 sts which left me with remaining 8sts (31-23 = 8sts) to knit. While on the next row (Strap Section), I have to continue over remaining 7sts. Where does the extra 1 stitch go? :’)
- Then, how do I manage to do ssk without undoing the cast-on sts?
If it is because of the cast-on technique…
- What is the best cast-on technique for this pattern (where you have to casting back on after binded off the previous row)?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
