Hi, sorry for the late reply... I just saw that there was a new post here.

So I made these up 2 years ago, but I went back and looked at the pattern (which they published in craft magazine--- so cool and exciting!!!!) and here's what I said about sizing; "I was thinking about sizing, and I'm pretty sure it'd be really easy. One of my friends wants me to make him a pair of these, and so I measured his shoes (a size 9 ladies) and they're a half inch longer than the size 8s. When I make them, I'm going to cast on 2 more stitches, and do the shaping the exact same way, since all the shaping is done on one side, and the other side (which gets sewn to the heel) is completely straight. So theoretically, if each size up adds a half inch in length, you should be able to calculate how many sts to add."

So for a size 11 shoe, I'm thinking you'd want to at 6 stitches to your cast on, and just work the shaping the same. For example!:
first piece (make two, one for each shoe..)
cast on 28 sts
1) K
2) P
3) K12, YO, K2tog, K1, YO, K2tog,K

So that's the original size 8 pattern. With you extra 6 stitches for the size 11 shoe, you would do this:

cast on 34 sts
1) k
2) p
3) k18, yo, k2tog, k1, yo, k2tog, k



I hope that helps!

Nope... these came before the mag.. the pattern was published in the mag just recently, I made this a couple years ago. It was definitely one of the most exciting things to happen to me!
