I assume after we are left with 6 stitches, we are to cast off and then cut the strands? I have already cut the strands and realized I should have cast off first. I'm a fairly new knitter so instructions have to be specific. Thanks.

Dear Jennie, stitches are not bound off, pull yarn through these 6 remaining stitches, tigthen together and sew tog edge to edge from toe up to 1/3 of the slipper with the same yarn. Happy knitting!

Decrease instructions make no sense! Can anyone transcribe?

DROPS Design 25.06.2018 kl. 06:24:

Hi Alice, To decrease first row: knit 1 then knit the rest of the stitches together 2 and 2 - so knit 2 together, knit 2 together, knit 2 together and so on. Then you knit 3 rows without decreasing and on the next row, knit 5-5-3-3- stitches and knit 2 together and repeat this to end of row. Knit 1 row and finally knit all stitches together again, 2 and 2 which leaves you with 6 stitches. I hope this helps and happy knitting!

Jeg er ret ny inden for strikkeverdenen, så jeg kan ikke helt læse mig frem til, hvor mange garnnøgler af DROPS eskimo, jeg skal bruge, hvis jeg skal strikke disse sutsko til min kæreste i en størrelse 44/46. Kan i svare mig på det? :)

Hej Rikke. Se mit svar herover. Sig til om der er noget du ikke forstaar der.

Bonjour, merci pour ce modèle, je viens d'en tricoter une paire et je vais en faire pour toute la famille :) Ils sont très confortables. Par contre je n'arrive pas à faire une couture qui soit jolie sur le dessus du pied. Y a-t-il une technique particulière ? merci

Bonjour Florence et merci, la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment assembler du point mousse. Bon tricot!

Marie 02.11.2014 - 21:15:

Jeg lurer på om det er en feil i tallene/forklaringen etter at man er ferdig med å strikke rillene og skal begynne å strikke maskene sammen? Hvis en har 29 m, deretter strikkes m sammen til 15 m, deretter skal det strikkes sammen 2m 3ganger, som igjen skal bli 12m. 15-6=9 (ikke 12) ?

DROPS Design 07.11.2014 kl. 18:32:

Hei Marie. Det er ikke feil. Du har 15 masker og strikker: 3 m r, de neste 2 m strikkes r sammen, Dvs, 3 + 1 maske (2 r sammen), 3 gange = 4 x 3 = 12
