Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 20 sts and 26 rows (4 inch) in St st (Knit 1 row; Purl 1 row) to make slippers that measure 5-1/2 (6-1/2, 7-1/2) inch when done. Remember to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needles and hooks; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size needles and hooks. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Pattern is written for Child's Size Small with with changes for Child's Sizes Medium and Large parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.
