I’m a beginner at knitting and I’m totally confused with this pattern.
After I knitted the 11 rows, I started the 1st row of “Shape Toe” I did all the stitches but I still have stitches left over.
Do I start the second row with the left over stitches or just knit to the end of the row?
This is the pattern:
Cast on 27 (35-43) sts.
1st and alt rows: (WS). Knit.
2nd row: K1. yfwd. K12 (16-20). yfwd. K1. yfwd. K12 (16-20). yfwd. K1. 31 (39-47) sts.
4th row: K1. yfwd. K14 (18-22). yfwd. K1. yfwd. K14 (18-22). yfwd. K1. 35 (43-51) sts.
6th row: K1. yfwd. K16 (20-24). yfwd. K1. yfwd. K16 (20-24). yfwd. K1. 39 (47-55) sts.
Knit 11 rows (garter st).
1st row: K15 (19-23). K2tog. K5. Sl1. K1. psso. Sl1. yf. Turn.
2nd row: K2tog. K5. Sl1. K1. psso. yf. Sl1P. Turn.

6th row: P2togtbl. P5. P2tog. Sl1P. Turn.
7th and 8th rows: As 5th and 6th rows once more.
9th row: K2tog. K5. Sl1. K1. psso. Knit to end of row. 21 (29-37) sts.
10th row: Purl.
Cont in garter st for 2 (2˝-2˝) ins [5 (6-6) cm], ending with a WS row. Cast off.
Sew sole seam. Sew back seam, reversing seam 1˝ins [4 cm] from cast off edge for turn back.
You are working short rows, which mean you will not use all of the stitches on a row. Follow the directions and when it says to turn, do just that. Swap needles in your hands and work back on the other side of your work.
Hi and welcome to Knitting Help!
Don't worry about the extra stitches that are left unworked when you turn. You'll knit them when you get to rows 9 and 10.
Very sweet pattern for booties. Thanks for posting the link.
I am doing this pattern and slightly new to knitting. So i got past the shaping the toe and im at:
Cont in garter st for 2 (2˝-2˝) ins [5 (6-6) cm], ending
with a WS row. Cast off.
my question is do i cont garter until what i have is 2 inchs or do i do garter stitch for 2 in
Just in-case its confusing im asking do i knit until the whole project is 2 inches or do i add 2 more inches of garter stitch to my project?
Thanks ahead of time for the help!!
Welcome to the forum!
Garter stitch for 2 inches (add 2 more inches to the bootie). This will make part of the sides and the sole of the bootie.
