When your piece reaches this length, then you will need to begin shaping the toe. Knit stitches onto double pointed needles. To shape the toe, you will need to work your stitches onto your double pointed needles. You can do this by knitting onto the double pointed needles instead of knitting them onto your straight needle. Start by exchanging your right hand straight needle for a double pointed needle when the knit side of your piece is facing you. Then, work about 6 to 8 stitches onto it.
After that, pick up another double pointed needle to work the next 6 to 8 stitches onto. Working the stitches onto the double pointed needles will form a circle with your knit piece. Make sure that you are working the stitches on so that the knit stitches right side are on the outside of the circle. Continue doing this until you have worked all of the stitches onto the double pointed needles.
Make sure to distribute your stitches as evenly as possible. Continue knitting in the round. Once you have worked all of the stitches onto your double pointed needles, continue to knit in the round.
To do this, simply knit all stitches in the round. Doing this will begin to form the toe area of your slippers. Decrease stitches when the piece reaches the middle of your big toe. Check the slipper size on your foot now and then to see how it is coming along. Keep in mind that the heel opening will still be open at this point, so you will need to pinch it closed to check the size.
When the slipper toe is long enough to cover your foot and is about at the middle of your big toe, then you can begin decreasing the stitches. Then, knit five stitches, and knit two together. Knit four stitches, and knit two together. Knit three stitches, and knit two together. Knit additional rows as needed to cover the tips of your toes or to provide space. Bind off when the piece covers your toes. Bind off the stitches as you normally would. Knit two stitches, then loop the first stitch over the second stitch to bind the stitch off.
Then, knit one and loop the first stitch over the second stitch. Continue to bind off in this manner until you have bound off all of the stitches in the round. Sew the toe and heel opening closed. To complete your slippers, you will need to sew the openings at the heel and toe of the slipper closed.
Turn the slipper inside out and then thread your tapestry needle. To do this, line up the stitches in the toe opening and then insert the threaded needle through the first two stitches. Bring the needle out and pull the thread taut. Then, insert the needle through the next pair of stitches from the same direction and pull the needle through and the thread taut. Continue doing this until you have sewn the opening closed.
Repeat the same process for the heel opening. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered. Already answered Not a question Bad question Other.
