The pattern is exclusive to the participants in the “Does Santa wear Slippers” KAL held in the Malabrigo Junkies group and TSKS in December 2012
The KAL is CLOSED for new members.
The pattern will be available through Ravelry in 2013.
Clue 1: There’s a mistake in the written instructions of A1.
Row 1 should read: sl1 wyf, k1, p1, k2, p1tbl, k2, RC, k2, p1tbl, k2, slk3 wyf, row 2 and 3 are correct, row 4 is correct except for the RC which needs to be k2tbl.
Clue 2: There was a bit confusion regarding the word „instep”, it might have been better to call it „top of foot“. In this clue you knit kind of a “tongue” that forms the middle part of the top of the foot.
Also: The box that marks the repeat in the set up round is missing. The ribbing pattern is k1tbl, p2, but the round ends with an additional k1tbl.
To determine the beginn of the toe chart, I tried my slippers on and measured the bit that was uncovered between the knitted “tongue” and the tip of my toes (~ 6 cm).
Note: even when the toe chart is completely knit, there will be still an uncovered part, i. e. the tongue will not reach the tip of your toes. We’ll take care of that bit in clue 3. :)
