  1. Hi,
    Im confused..
    Inc beg rows (toe) 17, 19, 21 and 23.
    Do I increase each of the rows with 1 stitch or more?
    Also were is row 18, 20 and 22?

    This is the baby slippers flower pattern.

    1. Hello Mona, you increase 1 stitch at the beginning of the following rows (only where the toe is and not on the outside edge of the slipper) – Inc beg rows (toe) 17, 19, 21 and 23. Then for the other rows – 18, 20 and 22 you just knit every row, there are no increases. I hope that helps and if you need anything else, feel free to send me an email. Thanks for visiting and happy knitting! 🙂
