Pattern Help Needed ASAP Please!!

Hi everyone!

I am working on a pattern for a Mickey Mouse Baby Set for a friend, and was hoping to drop it off to her tomorrow. Of course, waiting till the last minute to try to finish it was not a good idea, as I am stuck on the pattern for the booties.

Normally I would contact the author of the pattern, but she has closed Comments on this post and I cannot find an e-mail address or any way to contact her anywhere on her blog.

Here are the exact directions:

Bootie (make 2) with yellow hook size 5 mm
chain 2
row 1: 12 sc in second chain from hook, slip stitch to join, ch 1 turn (12 sc)
row 2 to 7: sc in each sc around, slip stitch to join,ch 1 turn (12 sc)
row 8 to 13: sc in each sc around ch 1 turn, do not slip stitch to join
join the end of the bootie by slip stitch every stitch fasten off
join yarn at the space left were you did not slip stich to join every row sc around repeat two more row
I have gotten through Row 13 with no problem, but now I am totally confused as to what to do next. The directions make no sense to me, starting with "join the end of the bootie by slip stitch..."  Maybe I haven't had any coffee yet today??!!
Can any of you please explain this to me so that it makes more sense?? Thanks in advance for your help :)


  1. Hi Sandy. I think it means to sl st the back of the booties (where the heel is) together. It looks like you did that in the picture. Then you would add 3 rounds of sc around the ankle opening. I hope that's it. :)

  2. Thanks Debi, I think you're right. Your way of saying it made much more sense, thanks so much!!

  3. I wrote it out as best as I could:

    Fold Row 13 in half - matching stitches together (match 1st sc with last sc) - join with a sl st to back loop of 12th sc and front loop of 1st sc - sl st across to close up the heel. End off.

    Join yarn with a sc to top ankle edge (at the back of the heel). Sc evenly around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. End off.

  4. Thanks again so much Debi. I'm going to put your instructions in with my pattern, in case I ever make it again I will know what to do!

  5. Debi's answer sounds exactly right. :)
