Please help with slipper pattern
Hi. I'm in the process of making (what I though would be) simple slippers. Made it through the sole a-ok, but now I'm lost.

here is the link: http://gasparotto.typepad.com/miscel...lippers_t.html

Here is the pattern:

Upper:

Cast on 8 stitches.

Row 1: k1, inc1, knit to last stitch, inc1, k1.

Row 2: Purl
Repeat these two rows until there are 28 stitches.

Row 1: k1, inc1, k5, inc1, k1 (put these 9 stitches on stitch holder) k to end.

Row 2: p7, k14

Row 3: knit

Row 4: p7, k14

Turn work and cast off 14 stitches, knit to end. (7 stitches)

Next row: p1, inc1, p5, inc1, p1 (these 9 stitches will form the sides of the slipper).

Row 1: knit

Row 2: p7, k2

Repeat these two rows until the strip measures 30cm. Notice that the 2 inside stitches worked in garter stitch form a mini border that ensures that the slipper sides won't curl inward.

Using kitchener stitch, graft these 9 stitches to the 9 live stitches left on stitch holder. This way there will be no seams that might hurt the foot while walking. Fasten off yarn.

My question is, I've put the first 9 stitches on st holder, but then, a bit farther down, it has me make another 9 stitches which says it's the slippers side. Do I put these stitches on a holder too? It doesn't say to, and when I get to ROW 2 (under this) it says to only P7, K2. I cant wrap my mind around it. Doesn't seem like it makes sense in this pattern to me.

HELP!

Thanks girls (and boys!)

Heidi

No,do not put the second 9 stitches on holder
Row 2 is those 9 stitches.
Once you start knitting it will make more sense,go for it

Heidi,
Sorry but I guess I don't understand this pattern either I don't get It either went back and looked at pattern and I'm not sure why you have those 7 sts from the row before, and it only says to work 9
Someone with more knowledge is gonna have to help you.

from what i can gather, the first 9 are still put away for later working... not sure for what, and the 7 that you had on your needle are increased by 2 to become the 9 that are now being worked for the sides. As far as I see it, if I were working the pattern, those first 9 would still be on their own stitch holder somewhere.

Here's how I see this: (in my mind anyway, hope I can describe it!)

Upper:

Cast on 8 stitches.

Row 1: k1, inc1, knit to last stitch, inc1, k1.

Row 2: Purl
Repeat these two rows until there are 28 stitches. {This makes the part that goes across your toes.}

Row 1: k1, inc1, k5, inc1, k1 (put these 9 stitches on stitch holder) {This will be the beginning of one side}, k to end {Should be 21 st}.

Row 2: p7, k14

Row 3: knit

Row 4: p7, k14

Turn work and cast off 14 stitches {This is your instep}, knit to end. (7 stitches)
{Turn the work here and make those 7 st into the 9 they want in the next row}
Next row: p1, inc1, p5, inc1, p1 (these 9 stitches will form the sides of the slipper). {This will start what is going to be the rest of the "sides", it'll go along the side of your foot, around the heel and meet up with the 9 st on the holder}

Row 1: knit

Row 2: p7, k2

Repeat these two rows until the strip measures 30cm. Notice that the 2 inside stitches worked in garter stitch form a mini border that ensures that the slipper sides won't curl inward.

Using kitchener stitch, graft these 9 stitches to the 9 live stitches left on stitch holder. {Here's where you'll have the part that covers your toes with a long strip on one side; the end of the long strip will loop around and connect with the part you left behind a while ago on the stitch holder, which is on the other side of the part that covers your toes}. This way there will be no seams that might hurt the foot while walking. Fasten off yarn.

Okay, a silly question before I get started (again)~

When I finally work up to the 28 stitches:

(Pattern reads)

Cast on 8 stitches.

Row 1: k1, inc1, knit to last stitch, inc1, k1.

Row 2: Purl


Repeat these two rows until there are 28 stitches.

do I stop at the increase row, or stop at the purl row before moving on.

Thanks soooo much!

Heidi
