Need Some Help-Knitting Slippers
Hi Ya'll! First off, this is my first post!! Im from Tennessee and just began knitting last year, and love it!
I started to make a pair of maryjane slippers for my daughter and Ive encountered a problem. I don't know if its me doing something wrong or the pattern.

It's a pattern from the Simply Knitting magazine Issue 66 May 2010.

It says to cast on 32 stitches and eventually you knit up to 44 stitches. Ive got that done with no problem.

Then it says:
Row 13 K23, k2tog, k1, turn
Row 14 Sl 1, K6, k2tog, K1, turn.
Repeat these 2 rows until you have 35 sts in total.

Well, I go and repeat both row 13 and row 14 twice. And when I go to repeat row 13 for the third time, I don't have enough stitches to knit even 23 less the rest of the row. And Im only down by about 4 stitches.

Wonder if anyone can help me here??

Hi and welcome, FiddleKat!
Sounds like some sort of shaping to me, does the pattern indicate what part of the slipper you're working on for these rows?

Welocme to KnittingHelp!
I agree, maybe shaping the toe or heel.
There's a mistake in the pattern. You can't repeat row 13 exactly. I think what you should do is something like row 13, row 14 and after the turn, knit to one stitch before the small gap (from the previous turn), k2tog, k1, turn. You can repeat that, each row decreasing one stitch until you get to 35sts. It's a bit like a heel turn for a sock. http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/pl...heel-of-a-sock

There are errata online for that issue of Simply Knitting butI don't see the maryjane slippers.
