Is there a pattern to work on a loom for this? Would love to make for my mom, just because. Thanks

Dear Mrs Haney, there is only a knitted pattern to these slippers. Should you need any help, you'll find some videos showing the different techniques used in that pattern. Happy knitting!

Christiana 11.10.2017 - 18:00:

Hi, when you say "K 3-4-4 sts, turn piece, tighten the thread and K back...." you mean from the beginning of the work knit 3 or knit 3 before the end and start the short rows. I am a bit confused. Thank you in advance for your time.

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 09:05:

Dear Christiana, at the very beginning of the work, just after casting on sts, work the short rows as explained: first on the right side of piece from RS then work 1 row over all sts and work the short rows over the left side of piece (seen from RS), ie starting from WS. Then K 1 row over all sts and continue with moss stitch. Happy knitting!

XRumer 12.0.19 is the BEST

Maria 22.01.2016 - 02:37:

I've moved to dpns and have 27 stitches. Seed stitch doesn't work evenly on an odd number of stitches so I get to the end and have two same stitches in a row. Am I doing something wrong?

DROPS Design 22.01.2016 kl. 10:40:

Dear Maria, see below how to work seed stitch in the round with an uneven number of sts. Happy knitting!

Florence 19.12.2015 - 11:01:

Bonjour Pourriez vous me préciser ceci: Quand les mailles sont sur les aiguilles double'pointes je ne comprends pas comment vous mesurez les 18 cm. Quel est le côté le plus court? Dans l'attente. Votre réponse, Merci.

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 10:15:

Bonjour Florence, au tout début, vous avez fait quelques rangs raccourcis et le bord de l'ouvrage n'est pas tout à fait droit, prenez les mesures au milieu, là où l'ouvrage est plus court que sur les côtés. Bon tricot!

Candice Ryba 05.12.2014 - 22:04:

What is the gauge for this pattern? I want to use chunkier yarn for these. Thank you.

DROPS Design 07.12.2014 kl. 13:26:

Dear Mrs Ryba, these slippers are worked with our bulky DROPS Eskimo with a tight gauge of 13 sts x 22 rows in seed st = 4"x4". see also here. Happy knitting!

Naomi 11.05.2014 - 12:04:

Hi, I am at the point where it says "Repeat dec on every 6th row a total of 4 times = 17-19-21 sts. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 11-13-15 cm on the middle, cast on 8-8-8 new sts at the end of next row from WS = 25-27-29 sts". I have decreased every 6 rows a total of 3 times, and done 2 more rows. My piece now measures 13cm on the middle (what I need) - so do I now cast on 8sts on WS, and if so, what do I do about the last few rows before the 4th decrease? Thanks, N

DROPS Design 12.05.2014 kl. 09:32:

Dear Naomi, cast on the 8 new sts now (when your piece measures 13 cm), continue in the round in moss st, and make the 4th dec 6 rows after the 3rd dec as done before. Happy knitting!

Hannie 31.10.2013 - 13:13:

Ik google mijn naam en zie de vraag die ik hier gesteld heb openbaar op Google staan. Vinden jullie dat netjes?

DROPS Design 31.10.2013 kl. 16:35:

Beste Hannie. Ja, de website en de blog is duidelijk openbaar.

Hannie Franken 20.10.2013 - 16:06:

Er lijkt een fout te staan. In regel 3 van het patroon staat "Brei 11-12-13 st recht, keer het werk, trek de draad aan en brei de een nld recht over alle st." Maar dat kan niet. Bij het nalezen van de Engelse vertaling blijkt dat er een patroon regel ontbreekt. Er moet namelijk staan:"Brei 13 st recht; keer het werk, trek de draad aan, brei recht. BREI 1 TOER IN RIBBELSTEEK OVER ALLE STEKEN. Wie kan dit aanpassen in de Nederlanse vertaling van het patroon? Groet uit Lewedorp

DROPS Design 21.10.2013 kl. 15:49:

Het patroon is aangepast, bedankt voor het doorgeven.
