Come fare questo modello coi ferri dritti?

DROPS Design 19.10.2018 kl. 14:16:

Buongiorno Maria. La lavorazione è in ferri di andata e ritorno. Può quindi lavorare con i ferri dritti al posto dei circolari. Potrebbe solo essere un po' più laboriosa la parte finale della pantofola. Buon lavoro!

Comment peut on travailler si peu de mailles ( 14 au départ) sur une aiguille circulaire?

Chere Doberset, ces chaussons se tricotent en allers et retours. Bon tricot!

SO CONFUSED... There has GOT to be some steps missing here! After the stiches are separated onto two stitch holders and the needles, which section am I knitting? And even after I do get that far, I don't get it. I'm a very experienced knitter. This pattern is just confusing!

Dear Kris, when working over the 12-14 mid sts, you are working top of foot, then you will knit back the first sts on thread, pick up sts along top of foot, work sts on top of foot, pick up sts along other side of top of foot and knit the sts from 2nd thread and work then to mid under foot. This video shows how to work the foot of a similar slipper pattern (remember to follow number of sts/pattern on the correct pattern). Happy knitting!
