I had some time last night to work on my Siberian Slipper pattern. It still needs a little tweaking, but it’s almost there.Photo0627I’m still working newborn size because it’s faster to knit and fine-tune mistakes. Once I’m satisfied with my technique I will try it full-size. I plan on trying a slightly different way of picking up the sole stitches.
I’m also not quite satisfied with how the decreases look. Decreasing that many stitches at once creates quite a ridge on the top of the slipper. I’m thinking I may try decreasing over three stitches and see if that gives me the look I want. I have also decided that I need to decrease one stitch before I get to the back ribbing so that it comes out right. You can see on this slipper I ended up with 2 purl rows together in my 1x1 rib. As always, I appreciate any suggestions anyone has.
