for Knitting Pure and Simple 2011
113 Children's Mukluk Slippers
"Snuggly slippers for kids, fast to knit and long wearing in bulky yarn. The tops can be made longer or shorter as you want. Sizes toddler 7 to big kid size 5," says Soucy. (This last translates to a foot length of about 6" to 8".) What is it about her that comes up with such good-looking, kid-friendly, practical pieces? This is going to be one of those things you could make hundreds of, if you were willing-- demand would be that high, and the pattern's that simple. Gauge given over garter stitch. Note that chunky yarn is knitted on smaller needles than usual for extra durability. An adult version is available here.

The 7 or 8 ridges is the total number from the cast on edge.
The pattern tells you exactly when to stop the garter stitch, and it tells you when to join the work into a round. If you follow the pattern step by step, it will make sense as you work it. If it still does not, you might need another knitter to help you.

I am having the same problem as Ms Thorn, but as well, which side to i stop knitting for the garter stitches rs or ws? to continue on with the instep, is it then that i divide the st among the 3 needles,? the patterns says no, but how does the row work from row 2 (of the instep) on. . . .with all the turns, i don't understand?
would really appreciate someone's help on this

I just finished the small size of these slippers and it took me about a day. It worked up very quickly and the instructions were spot-on. I have the cutest little pair of mukluk slippers and I intend to make more. Gauge is really important here if you want a specific size. Overall it was fairly easy for the advanced beginner knitter (like me) to follow the instructions.
New reviews will be available soon.
