Baby Slippers - Knit Right Shoe Strap
Hello everyone!

I am knitting a pair of super-soft slippers from the book Two Balls or Less by Jenny Hill. I already knitted the left slipper, it is super cute with its strap. I started the right slipper and stopped right before the rows to shape the strap. The pattern says: For right shoe, repeat as for left shoe, REVERSING SHAPING OF THE STRAP. I don't know how to do this

Please help me, my baby girl deserves a pair of decent slippers made by mom.



How do I reverse shape Row 32, 33, 34, 35 and 36?
I know that I am supposed to put the last 8 stitches on a holder b/c then I can use first 8 sts to begin the strap ( I am looking at it WS), but I end up with the last 8 and the tail yarn together!

FYI Shaping instep, before the shaping of the strap...
Row 29 - S1, p9, (s1, p1, psso) turn. 38 sts
Row 30- S1, K9 (s1, k1, psso). turn. 37 sts
Row 31 - S1, p9, (s1, p1, psso). work in seed stitch pattern to the end. 36 sts


These are the rows for the shaping of the strap....
Row 32 (RS) Patt in seed stitch for 8 sts. Put these stitches onto a stitch holder. Bind off 4 sts in seed stitch.k2tog, bind off this stitch and 8 sts across the front of the shoe, k2tog and bind off this stitch and 4 further sts in seed stitch, then work 8 sts in seed stitch to end. This will leave the middle of the shoe, across the instep, bound off.

Row 33 (WS) K8, cast on 12 sts

Row 34 (RS) K20, Now take the 8 sts on the stitch holder with the point of the needle towards the back seam of the shoe. Knit across these 8 sts. Then cast on 3 sts. 31 sts

Row 35 (WS) K28, yo, k2tog, k1. 31sts

Row 36 (RS) Knit to end. Bind off loosely and evenly.
