Wooly Woodland Moccocin Slippers

by Ms Barbara Wood
(Ontario Canada)

I am making trying to knit this pattern for Wooly Woodland Moccocin slippers and I'm having trouble understanding the pattern.

Cuff
Cast on 14 stitches.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 13 stitches for 11 rows.
(Question): Do I slip 1 p-wise and knit 13 stitches for 11 rows, or just slip 1 p-wise, for the first row. How many stitches should I have on my needles after I follow this, once I understand it?

Change colors, if you want the body of the moccasin to be
a different color from the cuff. Cast on 10 stitches, using a
provisional cast-on, knit them, then knit the original 14
stitches.


Body
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 22 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 21 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 20 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 19 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Knit 2 ridges (4 rows) of garter stitch (knit every stitch),
slipping the first stitch of every row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 22 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 21 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, k2t, knit 18 stitches, turn, knit to end of
row.
K2t, knit 17 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.
Halfway point!
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 21 stitches, turn, slip 1 stitch, knit to
end of row.
Slip 1 p-wise, knit 20 stitches, turn, knit to end of row.

YOUR ANSWER



Knit 11 rows, slipping the first stitch of every row purl-wise.

The number of stitches should remain the same, slipping the first stitch of every row just helps with keeping the sides tight and makes it easier to sew up when you are finished knitting.
