Ok, finishing up these cute little sandal booties. They are on page 43 of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Book. I have sewn up the seam and heel. I have a little strap leading up off of the instep. This will be folded over and make a loop for the strap that comes around from the shoe (through the loop to be buttoned on opposite side).
After join sole and back heel seem it goes thus:
Right side facing beg and end within 9 sts of back seam, k up 18 sts along heel for ankle strap ( I believe this makes the little piece that adds height to the back of the shoe (like the old fashioned Mary Janes).
Next Row: Cast on 22 (on what?), k to end, turn and cast on 4 sts (Before the previously knitted row?) What does this "Next row" have to do with the 18 stitches that added height to the back of shoe?
Buttonhole Row: K to last 3 sts (knit which?) k2tog, yf, k1,k2 rows cast off.
Any ideas, suggestions, insights, or just good ol fashioned epiphanies will be most welcome!
