very cute, can't wait to try it out!
Hmmm, I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have tried this pattern twice and both times I end up with something that looks nothing like a bootie. It doesn't close up and the last round of stitches before the sl st ends up making the toe on the side. I am a fairly experienced crocheter so this is really puzzling me.
Mine did the same thing. I think it has to do with the first row, When you continue to stitch down the backside-something goes wrong. It would helpful to have a more clear description. In the other rows, I started my sc and hdc in the same stitch as the ch 1 stitch-you need to skip that stitch and begin in the next stitch. They are cute, hope I too can figure this out.
I had this very same problem and I found a super easy fix! ~Make your first slipper exactly as written in the pattern (this would be the right foot). ~For the second shoe (the left foot), follow the pattern as written, but when you finish the end of Round 7, turn your show inside out and keep it that way. Now your inside is on the outside and that will flip the little toe curve to the other side. ~Now work Round 8 and Round 9 exactly as written in the pattern and voila! You have a proper left and right shoe. It does feel a little awkward when you begin Round 8 once it's inside out, but as long your stitch count is correct you shouldn't have any problems with it. Plus weaving the yarn in when you're finished helps to hide any little gaps or lumps you might end up with. The cuff of the slippers are slightly different because of this, but no one ever notices. I've made about a dozen slippers doing it this way and they're just darling. Here's a pic, hopefully the link works, it's from my fb page. https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1/1621674_608682999185509_155847647_n.jpg
Hi there! I'm stuck at Round 7 of the pattern: Ch1, 8sc. 7 Hdc2tog. Sc 13. Slst into first stich. When I finish the 13 sc I still have over a dozen stitches from Round 6, creating a weird pooch. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong?
Resolved! My crocheting newbie-ness found me doing some unintentional increases. :)
I think the tutorials should have more photos.Thus, people who perceive little English could also see the tutorials
Ah i am so sorry that the pattern doesn't have the type of yarn but you need 8ply yarn :)
how can i print the pattern
Because of the size of the hook, I would guess that the yarn would be finer than worsted.
This is from the Lion Brand Yarn SiteCATEGORY 2 SPORT WEIGHT: FINE, SPORT WEIGHT, BABY YARNA light weight yarn used for babywear, sweaters, and lighter throws. UK/Australia approximate equivalent: 8 ply
are these made in worsted or double knitting yarn as the pattern does not say manythanks
could you say what yarn you used please as i would love to make these
What kind of yarn did you use for these? A worsted weight or lighter style yarn? I'm just curious...thanks for the great pattern!
