I am on the decrease here, I have 39 stitches, and I have tried this like 3 times, and I keep ending with 14 stitches instead of 13- Am I doing something wrong? I think I have miscounted, though how could I have miscounted 3 times??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iorcSCGwdDw&feature=emb_err_woyt
After several frogs, I have completely given up on this project- I don’t have time to fiddle with it!
Completely understandable. This pattern is painful from the get-go. There are plenty of other slipper patterns if that’s what you’re interested in making.
Glad you agree! I have been searching for a slipper pattern/knit along with no seaming though and that is proving to be a bit of a challenge. I have seen a few, but they have a hole in the toe area, which is not going to work for me, because my kid will inevitably put his finger in the hole… (and though I have tried several times, I can’t seem to grasp the pin hole cast on). I guess I will have to keep looking, though I do appreciate your help!
Those slippers you tried look gorgeous but I tried these simpler ones and they work a treat.
You could reduce the cuff to make them less sock-like maybe?
Thanks Tina, I was just trying to get away from seaming, I am not good at that!
I can sympathise with that!
It really is the bane of a knitter’s life but not as bad I think as “pick up and knit”, etc.,
how I hate to see that in a pattern.
I never get the number of stitches right or end up with holes, not the professional finish I would like.
Ah the woes of knitting, still it’s one of the good things about lockdown, we can knit all day and not feel quilty! Yeh!
How about toe up slipper-socks?
Thanks Jack, I actually did go with a similar pattern, I am making these ones (and I learned the pin hole cast on, so there is no hole!)
