Hi. I’m in the process of making (what I though would be) simple slippers. Made it through the sole a-ok, but now I’m lost.
here is the link: http://gasparotto.typepad.com/miscellanea/2006/09/maes_slippers_t.html
Here is the pattern:
Cast on 8 stitches.
Row 1: k1, inc1, knit to last stitch, inc1, k1.
Row 2: Purl
Repeat these two rows until there are 28 stitches.
Row 1: k1, inc1, k5, inc1, k1 (put these 9 stitches on stitch holder) k to end.
Row 2: p7, k14
Row 3: knit
Row 4: p7, k14
Turn work and cast off 14 stitches, knit to end. (7 stitches)
Next row: p1, inc1, p5, inc1, p1 (these 9 stitches will form the sides of the slipper).
Row 1: knit
Row 2: p7, k2
Repeat these two rows until the strip measures 30cm. Notice that the 2 inside stitches worked in garter stitch form a mini border that ensures that the slipper sides won’t curl inward.
Using kitchener stitch, graft these 9 stitches to the 9 live stitches left on stitch holder. This way there will be no seams that might hurt the foot while walking. Fasten off yarn.
My question is, I’ve put the first 9 stitches on st holder, but then, a bit farther down, it has me make another 9 stitches which says it’s the slippers side. Do I put these stitches on a holder too? It doesn’t say to, and when I get to ROW 2 (under this) it says to only P7, K2. I cant wrap my mind around it. :shrug: Doesn’t seem like it makes sense in this pattern to me.
Thanks girls (and boys!)
