    Are there directions for different sizes – children’s as well as adults?

    1. Fariba says:

      Hi Carol, this size will fit adult size of small, medium and large because it stretches out after completed, for kid’s size you can cut the numbers to half and try couple of rows to compare with kid’s size.

    Thank you!

    However, on written pattern, what happened to Rows 9-21? Then Rows 23, 25, 27, 29 seem to be missing also.

    1. Fariba says:

      Hi Kimberly, thank you for your comment. When you start the pattern you will get the order of increasing stitches and you will figure out the missing rows pattern. However if you looking for rows 9-21 you can put numbers in the below formula for X and get the row: (Put number instead of x)
      Row X: K10, YO, K(X+3), YO, K2, YO, K(X+3), YO, K10
      Also row 23,25,27,29 are return rows and are purled.
      Hope this clarifies it for you, please let me know if you need more questions. :)

    Hi Fariba, thank you very much for that slipper, it is very easy to knit, but if I want to increase the size for adult, who can I do it???

    1. Fariba says:

      Hi Dalia,
      You just need to cast on a little bit more if the given size does not look big enough for yourself. Then follow the same instruction to increase 4 stitches per even row prorating them symmetrically.
