I love these slippers. The only thing I would've liked to see is measurements for blocking. I found the pattern easy to follow.

Thanks ANNA BACHTEL for your post. It was driving me crazy looking for that same information. Life is good now.

I want to change my Review that I sent in yesterday. I couldn't find the chart for the Sole anywhere on the pattern and wrote to the designer, Emily Kintigh, who answered my email immediately, telling me where it should be. And sure enough, it is on the page with the Left/Right patterns. It is very small - only three stitches wide and two rows high, so I just didn't see it. I'm blaming that on my advanced age! So very sorry for the complaint. The pattern and kit is wonderful and I am learning about steeking. I do think I will make a second pair to see if I can improve on the first pair.

I have never heard the term steeking and am delighted to now know how to do it....not sure I ever want to try it again, so my plan to make a pair of these slippers for each of my female relatives next Christmas will now need to be revised. I downloaded the pattern (as it clearly states on the website - it also clearly states that steeking is required) but I either missed a page or it was missing from the link. I do not have the sole chart so can't finish these slippers until I get it. Hopefully, they will email or text me with a simple solution.

While I learned A LOT, these are difficult unless you are very comfortable with intarsia and steeking. Google/YouTube was my companion and got me through. The end result was as pictured.

The kit contains portion of the purchase page does say that steeking is needed for this pattern and it is a downloadable pattern right after you purchase it.

This kit is beautifully presented but it did not mention the pattern requires steeking so it is no longer a good option for gifting as the recipient is not up to this skill level

For now I am giving it an average review for the same reason above....I did not know that. Actually, I don't even have the pattern yet as the kit just arrived and the pattern has not....and the office is close until after January 1st. So any ideas I had of knitting cozely by the fire in the frigid temps while actually having a long holiday weekend are gone up in smoke as they say. It should have been emailed immediately when I placed my order, incidentally while their offices were open. Not happy with Knit Picks customer service. Products and prices are fantastic, getting them and so forth is not so great. Now to realize that I have to learn a new technique that wasn't mentioned. Frustrating.

I wish the description mentioned that the pattern uses steeking to knit these. It is a skill I am unfamiliar with and won't be able to knit these up until I learn.
