Sacha Slipper strap confusion
I'm finishing a pair of Sacha Slippers and the directions for the Center Strap aren't making sense to me. I can make it work, but I want to know where I'm misunderstanding. I've found no corrections.

From the pattern

Quote:
Center Strap: With straight needles, using MC, cast on 16 sts.

Row 1: K9, bind off 6 sts.

Row 2: K1, cast on 6 sts, k9. Rep Rows 1 and 2 once more. Bind off. Sew short end of strap without holes to bound-off sts where toe was divided for sides.
When I cast on 16 sts then K9 and BO 6, I have 2 sts left on my needle.

Am I doing the bind off count incorrectly? Or am I supposed to have 2 sts remaining and only work one on Row 2? I'm confused, obviously.

Anyhow, I will as I said make it work or I'll find out what I'm doing wrong and make it right. Either way, they're nearly done.

Knit 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9...THEN knit the 10th and 11th stitch, and bind off the 10th stitch over top of the 11th stitch (1 st is now bound off)...and continue the bind-off count. I think you misconstrued the part in blue. AFTER you knit the 9 knits...you need to knit two stitches more (10th & 11th) before the binding off 'count' clock starts ticking.

I think this is where your extra stitch came from. Try it.

Thanks so much. I tried it and it worked. I was sure it was my counting somehow. So now I've done one strap and it makes sense.
