My interpretation of Tricollage's Sapatinhos.
The grey yarn was threaded afterwards to gather the ends.
I used worsted wt yarn and cast on 20 sts, knit about 20 rows/10 ridges.
Bound off 4 or 5 for cuff part then worked garter stitch on the left 4 sts (sole) and
I made ribbed welts of knit and purl - 3 rows each.
About 15 welts and cast on 4/5 sts on the right side for the other half of the cuff.
These will be seamed in the back.
Sole with ribbed part gathered up ready to seam.
These were fun to make. You can explore other countries for new and interesting patterns
by finding out the words in their language for that item.
Try Googling sapatinho, sapatinho de bebe, sapatinho trico for Portuguese sites.
I've found some great adult slipper patterns - those will be next!
