Moss stitch

Round 1:* K1, p1 * repeat from *-*.

Round 2: K over p and p over k.

Repeat round 2.

Piece worked in the round on double-pointed needles, from top down.

Cast on 50 (50: 54: 58:62) sts on double-pointed needles size 2.5mm with Alpaca. K1 round on all sts and continue as follows:

Sizes 1-3 months, 6-9 months and 2 years

K1, * p2/k2 *, repeat from *-* on the next 16(16:20) sts, p2, M.5 (= 12 sts), * p2/k2 *, repeat from *-* on the next 16 (16:20) sts, p2, k1.

Sizes 12-18 months and 3-4 years

P1, * k2/p2 *, repeat from *-* on the next 20 (24) sts, M.5 (= 12 sts), * p2/k2 *, repeat from *-* on the next 20 (24) sts, p1.

Continue like this until piece measures 6 (7:7:8:8)cm, 2 1/2 (2 3/4:2 3/4:3 1/4)in.

K 1 round on all sts, ATTHE SAME TIME dec 4 sts evenly on round - do not dec on the 16 sts on upper foot (= M.5 + p2 each side) = 46 (46:50:54:58) sts. Keep the 16 sts on upper foot on needle and slip remaining 30 (30:34:38:42) sts on a stitch holder.

Continue in M.5 with p2 each side back and forth on needle for 3 (3.5:4:5:6) cm, 1 1/4 (1 1/2:1 1/2:2:2 1/2)in. On next row from RS dec 4 sts on M.5 = 12 sts left on upper foot. Now pick up 6 (8:8:10:14) sts on the side of upper foot, slip sts from stitch holder back on needle and pick up 6 (8:8:10:14) sts on the other side of upper foot = 54 (58:62:70:82) sts.

Continue in moss st - see above - in the round on all sts for 1.5 (2:2.5:3:3.5)cm, 1/2 (3/4:1:1 1/4:1 1/2)in and now P 1 round on all sts. Cast off all sts except the 12 sts on upper foot mid front. Work 9 (10:11:13:14)cm, 3 1/2 (4:41/2:4 1/2:5 1/2) moss st back and forth on needle on these sts for sole.

Cast off and sew sole to side pieces, sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
