This morning being the first quiet moment as my daughter got up I decided to build up the shoes, this is a relatively small knit although it has a few complex increase rows which take concentration to complete. After around and hour both pieces were complete.
As you can see there is a decrease of stitches on the second row, leaving the excess at 20 cm for making up, start were you tie off, folding the stitches knit side in ensure the stitching does not cover the leg opening and mattress stitch the shoe seam to completion.
The easiest way to remember is to follow the reduction along the shoe line until you reach the centre of the base of the shoe. Once both are completed you should have two tiny little booties, that are ready to fit to the base of the legs, once the stuffing is in place.
The next pieces are the jacket and arms, which will take a reasonable amount of time to complete being three pieces. So I will return to my project as soon as I get a moment but until then this is the character pieces so far, it is better to secure the shoes using the excess from the base of the trousers so any excess wool can be cut back after tying off.
