  5. I'm just wondering, I'm always ending up with 49 stiches at the end of the sole of the shoe. I followed precisely...it happened on both soles...?? Help please!! Or does it even matter? I'm just starting out ��

    1. I was having issues also. I think the repeats on the 3rd round are off. The first should be repeat once more instead of twice and instead of repeat 5 times, it should be 4. So there is a total of 5 iterations on the front and back of the sole.

  6. My sole comes out to be about 6 inches in length. Is that correct? Seems huge for an infant. What could I have done wrong?
    Thank you

    1. Hello,
      Your yarn weight might be slightly too heavy, or your gauge might be a lot looser than mine. My sole measured roughly 3.5 inches in length.

  15. They are so sweet. I have troubles doing them as my daughters feet are already about 11,5 -12cm . Can you recommend how to deal with the difference?

    Thank you sooo much for this pattern!

  16. Olivia,
    I absolutely adore these, however my daughters feet are huge! I've worked the field mice and the sizing was perfect at 6-12m. Could you possibly publish the change with this pattern as well?
