One Seam Baby Slippers
4mm crochet hook
4mm knitting needles
worsted weight yarn
Instructions (RIGHT SLIPPER):
- With crochet hook, chain 40, remove hook and insert knitting needle in loop that the crochet hook was just in. Pick up/knit 6 stitches from the bumps on the back of the chain strip (you should have 7 loops on the knitting needle),
skip 3 chains/bumps and insert needle into the 4th chain/bump (this creates the button hole). Continue picking up/knitting stitches across. (37sts)
- Bind off 15 stitches, *knit across remaining 6 stitches and pick up 1 stitch from the Bind Off edge of the first 15 stitches you bound off (see photo below), turn work. (8sts)
- Knit 2 stitches together then knit across remaining 6 stitches. (7 stitches on needle) Repeat from * across for 28 rows or until there are no more stitches to pick up on the Bind Off edges (this is attaching the sides of the slipper to the sole (or bottom) or the slipper).
Here is how the bottom of the slipper should be looking, as your work is progressing:
- Seam through all 3 layers to close toe.
Sew buttons in place and put on your favourite baby feet. ˚Ü˚
