No. 349. KNITTED OVERSHOE. This pretty, warm-looking slipper is knitted with scarlet wool and steel needles, partly to and fro, and partly in the round. The shoe is knitted so as to appear knitted on the right side of the work ; and the border is knitted in a ribbed pattern. Begin at the heel with 39 stitches, and knit to and fro 33 rows; that is, 17 knitted and 16 purled, always slipping the first stitch. For the seam in the centre, the centre stitch of the knitted rows must be purled, and for the side seams 2 stitches must be purled together at the distance of 2 stitches from the centre. The narrowing for the heel is commenced in the next row, after knitting off 14 stitches. Take up the il centre stitches on a fresh needle, and knit to and fro along them. At the end of the purled rows, the 2 next side stitches must be purled together as follows : slip 1, purl 1, pass the slipped stitch over. At the end of the knitted row, 2 stitches must be knitted together in the same way. When all the side stitches have been used, the marginal stitches on each side the heel are taken up on separate needles, and 46 rows are knitted to and fro along all the stitches, continuing the same as usual ; and decreasing i stitch in the 4th, 8th, joth, 12th, 14th, 16th, and 18th of these rows at the distance of 2 stitches from the edge. After the 46th row, cast on 22 more stitches and knit along the sock part and along the stitches just cast on, 52 rounds. Then follow 15 rounds without increase or decrease ; then a round in which i stitch is decreased after every 8 stitches; 7 more rounds without decrease, and then another decreasing round as before, except that there are only 7 stitches between each decreased stitch. Keep on diminishing by I the number of rounds between each decreasing round; and of stitches between each decrease until the shoe is ended by decreasing in every round to the end. Then take up the inarginal stitches, and knit in the round 6 rounds in a ribbed pattern, knit 2, purl 2. Cast off loosely.
