We can usually find them or at least the picture if we have a name.

A wild guess here (which is akin to assuming) but I'll do it anyhow. Did you start at the toe and bind off in the middle of your stitches so you have strips continuing along the sides toward the heel? I expect I now have egg all over my face.

On the pattern they are just called slippers, probably not very helpful.

I started at the toe and the step before is to K9, cast off 13, K9.

It sounds to me as if the strips will be the sides of the slipper and they are the live sts on each side of those you cast off. Even a picture of a similar slipper could be helpful. If you can tell whether it is from a book, magazine, etc., and it's title, someone might have it.

You've done this part, correct?
Quote:

K9. Cast off 13 sts. K9.
For this next part

Quote:
Join a 2nd ball of yarn to first 9 sts. Working both sides at same time, cont in garter st (knit every row) until strips from cast off edge measure 1 ins [3 cm].
you will work the stitches still on the needle on each side of the cast off stitches until they are each 1 3/4" when measured from the row where you cast off the 13 sts in the middle. You'll have to join new yarn on one side.

Excellent! Here's the link for anyone helping. I will take a look in a little bit to see if there's anything I can add, but you've gotten good help already.
