I've never been so disappointed with a pattern. Not only difficult to follow, the video is useless because there is no sound and the parts I needed to see were sped up ...I used larger needles, followed the pattern to a T, and used the largest size AND THE COMPLETED SLIPPER MIGHT BE THE EQUIVALENT OF A SIZE 5 US!!!! Get better designers!

Dear P S, we are very sorry to hear that you get so many troubles with this pattern, it's a very popular pattern that has been made successfully a lot of times. Remember your DROPS store will provide you any further individual assistance when you are stuck, even per mail, telephone or social medias. Happy knitting!

These are so cute, I made one but unfortunately it doesn't fit. I wear a size 9 1/2 women's and i made the largest size that should fit a 9/10 but it was too small. They are adorable though and I'm giving my pair to a friend. :) I think I'll just try again with larger needles to see if that works. Thanks for sharing this pattern!

Margaret 12.05.2018 - 06:11:

I have made three pairs and I am very delighted as they look just like the picture. I however used two needles instead of the pointed ones. thank you for this beautiful pattern. I made these for mothers day

Thank you for sharing this pattern. I have been looking for a button cuff style bootie pattern for a year now. It is not exactly what I want but I may be able to adapt to fit my requirements. Great work~

If I have a larger foot (in size, and also it's being operated on, what adjustments should I make? Thanks in advance!

Hei, onko ohjeessa virhe? En saa tehtyä kantapäästä pitemmälle...

Bonjour, Est ce que je peux vous envoyer me debut de mon ouvrage pqar mail, je ne sais pas ce qui cloche, j ai pensé bien suivre le patron mais une fois la tige et le chausson finis je ne peux pas faire de coutures comme indiquée, le chausson semble trop petit. En vous remerciant

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 11:38:

Bonjour Mme Dhenin, pour toute assistance individuelle, n'hésitez pas à vous adresser au magasin où vous avez acheté votre laine, au forum DROPS ou au groupe DROPS Workshop. Bon tricot!

Nadia Critchfield 11.11.2017 - 04:58:

Is there a video tutorial for this pattern using circular needles rather than double pointed needles?

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 09:15:

Dear Mrs Critchfield, this pattern is worked with double pointed needles, that's the reason why the video is using these needles. You will find videos using circular needles there. Happy knitting!

Renee 18.10.2017 - 05:00:

What is the gauge for this pattern? I made these and they turned out to be toddler socks!

DROPS Design 18.10.2017 kl. 08:57:

Dear Renee, you will find gauge under tab Materials, ie 13 x 17 rows in stockinette st with 2 strands DROPS Nepal worked together = 4"x4". Happy knitting!

Kristel 13.10.2017 - 21:16:

Bonjour, je ne comprend pas une chose sur le patron a la fin au niveau du dessous du pied quand on démarre le jersey il est indiqué de tricoter ensemble les mailles chaque coté du marqueur tous les 2 tours et ensuite 4 diminutions par tour... doit on faire un rang jersey sans diminutions tous les 2 tours? Ça risque de dépasser les 3 cm non?

DROPS Design 16.10.2017 kl. 09:23:

Bonjour Kristel, on diminue 4 m tous les 2 tours juqu'à ce que la partie jersey mesure 3 cm. Pour diminuer, on tricote 2 m ens à l'end avant et après chacun des marqueurs (côté pointe et côté talon)) = 4 diminutions. On tricote ensuite 1 tour sans diminuer et on répète ces 2 tours. Bon tricot!
