Picture coming soon.
Note: You will see the following symbols in this pattern. They are as follows: * sides of slipper, **row beginning up to instep, = instep of slipper. See bottom for changing pattern for different sizes.
Size 8 knitting needles
2 strands of knitting worsted
Cast on 45 stitches.
Knit across 6 - 8 rows. (3 - 4 ridges).
*Knit 1 row and Purl 1 row.*
Repeat * for about 6 rows.
**K 19, Knit 2 together, knit 4, knit 2 together** Do not turn yet.
=Pass stitch from 1 needle to the other, k 2 together, k 4, k 2 together, turn.= Repeat from = for 4 - 5 ridges. Knit to end of row on opposite side of beginning of this row..
P 1 row, K 1 row, for 6 - 8 rows. Bind off. Sew up back and bottom seams. You can make a cord or draw string to weave through the top for a tie if needed.
Cast on 55 sts.
Work same except:
**K 24, K 2 together, K 4, K 2 together. Turn.**
You may adjust sizes by adding or subtracting 10 stitches to cast on row and adding or subtracting 5 stitches to the ** row. This pattern works up very fast, especially after you have done the sides. I have made some with 2 strands of baby yarn and size 4 needles for babies.(35 sts)
