    Instructions not real clear and jumps from row 23 to the 49th row

  2. Patricia Kietzke says:

    My pattern is easier, too, and turns out better.

  3. Gloria Butler says:

    The pattern I have is way, way, easier and looks just as nice if not better…..

  4. I have come across many patterns where the first stitch is “slipped” to the opposite needle and not worked. This creates a smooth edge. In the above instructions I almost think the (slip tog) is a typo and not instructions to knit 2 stitches together. When you add the stitches in the first row you come up with the original 34. However, further on in the pattern there are clear instructions to decrease by knitting 2 stitches together. Hope this helps:)

  5. Not very clear about instructions

  6. What is S1.1, not familiar with this one?

  7. susan haller says:

    please explain Sl.1(slip tog) I would like to make these slipper for xmass

  8. Kathleen Heseltine says:

    From the comments shown here there is quite a bit of confusion about those first two rows and the Sl.1 sitch at the beginning. I admit that I too am confused and I would love to make these slippers. Has anyone made them that could clear up these instructions?
