A Solo Shoe Act

I saw a cute pattern when I was at knit group two weeks ago, and I acquired said pattern, even though it was crochet and I don’t know how to read a crochet pattern, because said pattern was so cute.

I cast on for said pattern, worked my way through the stitches, even though I wasn’t sure what hdc stood for or dtc, and completed half of a pair of Baby MJ Skimmers! (rav link)

Aww!

So when I went to cast on for the second of the shoes, I had already looked up the terms I didn’t know, and how to do them, and forgot how I attempted them the first time around, and now I cannot get the second one to match! This one took me probably a total of 4-5 hours to complete, and since I am now more comfortable and know how to read a pattern, I could probably do it faster. This means that it will be much less hassle to just leave this one and make another pair that will be easier to match. So that is what I’m going to do.

Now what shall I do with one slipper? I was thinking that I could make a key-ring decoration from this, or I could use it as decoration for the baby’s room. I could stuff a catnip pillow in it and make a cat toy. Got any other suggestions?!

  1. I can’t believe you figured out how to do that! Crochet is a mystery to me.
    I think the one slipper would be an adorable decoration for the baby’s room, maybe even as part of a mobile.

  2. I’m happy to try to make you a matching one, if you send me the yarn and the one you’ve got. Or, worse-case scenario, I can frog and start over to make 2 to match. I bought that pattern a long time ago, and I’m glad to see it’s so cute in person, too! šŸ™‚
