Stash Busting...

The stash busting continues with a pair of super cute slippers for Miss Connie to match the ones made for Little Millie last week...
Inspired by these slippers my modifications are as follows....
Cast on 20st using 5mm needles and 2 x 12ply yarns held together...
row 1 - knit
row 2 - k5, p1, k8, p1, k5
rep these 2 rows 9 more times...
next row - k1, p1 to end.
rep this row 4 mote times.
dec row - (k1, p1) x 4, k2tog, p2tog, (k1,p1) x 4.
next row - k1, p1 to end.
dec row - (k1, p1) x 3, k2tog, p2tog, k2tog, p2tog, (k1, p1) x 2
next row - k1, p1 to end.
dec row - (k1, p1) x 3, k2tog, (k1, p1) x 3.
Thread tail onto darning needle and thread stitches off needle onto tail, thread through again and pull REALLY tight….
Sew up along the toe ribbing to enclose shoe and weave in end.
Fold cast on edge in half and sew closed, weave in ends…
These instructions will make up a pair of size 7-8 child's shoe which fits a 2-3yr old.
I'm loving stash busting at the moment and have a gorgeous feather and fan bib on the go as I type this... Stay tuned for my modified version of the pattern and a few snap shots later on in the week... :)
