    In regards to the pattern are all sizes worked the same except for the length in which you measure ?….I don’t see any parentheses for changing stitches for the size…… Thank you…..

      Hi Veronica. sizes Small and Medium differ only in their lengths but size Large differs in the shell rows as well. Size Large is given separately.

    I have a question. the pattern reads

    Border Around the Slipper
    You will now work 2 rounds around the opening of the slipper with a few increases thrown in. This will make your slippers snug and keep it from falling off your feet. You will be working across row ends for the most part and have to distribute your sc as evenly as possible.

    Round 1: Sl st to the back seam, ch 1, sc2tog, work sc evenly around the slipper with 7 decreases (sc2tog), 1 at the back, 2 on either side and 1 at each of the corners of the toe top as shown ( see pic for smaller sizes). Sl st to the 1st sc, do not turn.——-57 sts

    Round 2: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st as ch 1, *(sk 1 st, 1 sc in next, 1 sc in the previous skipped st), repeat from * to end and sl st to first sc. Fasten off and weave in the tails.
    Where are the increases you are referring to? I’m confused.

      Hi Pat, please take a look at Picture 7 in the pattern. It shows you where to work the decreases. I hope that helps.

        I am so sorry, that are decreases(sc2tog) and not increases. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. I just corrected it.

    I’m sorry to be such a pest. I still don’t know where the INCREASES come in. You went from 24 stitches to 48 stitches. Some where I have to 2 sc in every stitch, is that right? Please forgive my ignorance.

      After the 24 stitches, you seam the back side and fasten off. The 48 stitches are then worked around the opening of the slipper. You are not increasing 24 to 48 here. Makes sense?

    I think a little light bulb may have gone off in my head! By Jove, I believe I got it!!!!Thanks for being so patient with me. The slipper is beautiful and I really want to make some. Again, thanks for all your help. When I finish a pair is there somewhere I can post it so you can see them?
