Good morning everyone
I am making these awesome slippers, http://www.purlbee.com/mary-jane-slippers/
or, at least I am trying to. I have made the sole, but this is my first time picking up stitches and I am having some problems.
, when I "pick up" the stitches in this pattern, am I JUST
picking up? Or am I picking up and knitting? I don't really see how I can pick up the stitches on the heel and toe and not pick up and knit, but the pattern says to just pick up.
the pattern says to pick up 3 for every 4 stitches up the sides, but I can't evenly do that, the math doesn't work out. Where exactly do I start picking up only 3 of 4 instead of every one?
picking up the stitches! again, I have never done it, and this pattern is doing it in garter stitch. I found this excellent tutorial, http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/archiv...kup_lines.html
the only issue is that it is from left to right? and it is just pick up, not pick up and knit which again becomes a problem when picking up the stitches in the toe and in the heel
am I doing something wrong? Please help knitting experts!
Its at times like these that I really wish that I had a mentor!
Thanks so much ahead of time for any help that anyone can offer!
