I am stuck - HELP
Maybe I am just having one of those days, but I thought this was supposed to be an easy pattern and I've done much harder, but can't get past the foot row on this one
http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=1876
The row for shaping the feet just doesn't come out right on 40 stitches am I missing something somewhere? Anybody made these that knows. Thanks, Sherry

Gummy Jelly Baby help
Hi Sherry,
Well, I think I've figured it out. The pattern is just badly punctuated at that point. It says this:
Shape Feet:
K4 (K3 tog) 4 times. K8 (K3 tog) 4 times, K4 - 24 sts

What it SHOULD say is this:
K4. Then K3tog 4 times (that makes a total of 8 stitches so far).
K8. Then K3tog 4 times again. (that makes a total of 20 stitches now).
K4. (that makes a grand total of 24 stitches).

What is happening is you are really pulling together tons of stitches in a small space every time you knit 3 stitches together, creating only 1 new stitch on the other needle.

Does that work for you?
