In the pattern - the joining part - it says to purl 3 together, can't quite understand as you have one stitch from the stitches on the needle and you pick up one stitch from the band, where is the third stitch from?

Oh dear. It made sense at the time. Maybe I was counting the stitch that was still on the needle from finishing the instep triangle? I'll have to make another to see what I was trying to explain. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for this pattern. I understand that they are meant to be "soalless" but I think I will also try adding them to flop/flop soals I have been meaning to reuse. I can't wear flip/flops as the plastic or leather straps rubs between my toes and I am too sensative there.

That might be possible to do if you can find a way to attach it to the soles. My sister wears her barefoot sandals with flip-flops to "dress them up". I wonder if you could yarn bomb that part of the flip-flop that goes between the toe with baby yarn to make them softer? Good luck with that endeavor.

I had a problem joining the triangle to the bracelet part, getting it centred, so I did a little revision - I made the triangle part as per your pattern, left it on the needle, then cast on 14 stitches, knit across the 14 stitches plus the triangle, cast on another 14 stitches. Then made the bracelet part the same as your pattern, and cast off. (I found I only needed 43 stitches to go round my ankle as the yarn I used was quite stretchy.) Goes quicker this way rather than having to join the two pieces. Thank you for the pattern and the inspiration. They are so quick and easy to make, I plan to make a lot for my summer craft sale.

That's super, Marg! I tried going in that direction to begin with, but didn't take the same approach as you did. Good luck in your sales.

HI! How pretty!
This is my first time knitting with beads and it is FUN!
I have a problem on row 14 of the Foot Triangle section. If I do the (YO, Bd/K, YO, K1) three times I am lacking a stitch for the K2 edge. What am I doing wrong? Do you know? Thank you for your help.

I can download this pattern but I can't read it because the print is too light. Has anyone else had this problem? I want this pattern, any suggestions?
