Second time knitting this pattern… loved and wore the first pair so much they worn out the balls of my feet! This time, the yarn is inspired by Stardust, a favorite movie of both me and E.

using Chaiagoo needles. modified stitch count for my feet size (72st instead of 58), added extra stitches on either side of the lace panel on the top of the foot.

modded the heel to work with the extra stitches, and widened and lengthened the hearts (google drive spreadsheet, because the heart decreases near the top just weren’t making sense) for the side panels.

integrated a twisted rib into the top of the last heart pattern (sinking deeper into the point), and did some increases over the front and back spine since this length hits right over my calf muscles.
