I don't have the patience to do anything sizeable, so I've taken to making small things, like my lovely soft shoe cell phone case. With and without the phone in it:

(yes, it's sideways. My camera wouldn't let me turn it right way up.)


Pattern
Needles size US 6.
Back- Cast on 10.
1) Purl across (all odd rows likewise)
2) K
4) K5, Make1 (any increase that doesn't form a hole will do), K5
6) K5, M1, K6
8 ) K6, M1, K6
10) K6, M1, K7
Work rows 12-32 in st st (Or you could continue if it needed to be longer)
Bind off.

Front-Cast on 10 (This is the way I did it, as I was making it up as I went along. The increases are placed slightly differently)
1) Purl across; all odd rows likewise.
2) K
4) K5, M1, K5
6) K5, M1, K6
8 ) K6, M1, K6
10) K7, M1, K6
11) P
Bind off.

The front is sewn around the edges to the bottom of the back to form the "toe box."
The top few rows are folded over and stitched in place.
The strap is a crocheted chain.

Hopefully that makes sense. ^^ If you don't get it, just ask. Oh, and I'm not sure if it's big enough to fit the foot of anyone older than a small girl. My cell is about 4.5 cm wide x 9 cm long x 2 cm thick.

Wow, what a fantastic idea. It's really cute. My daughter is a former ballerina and I'd love to make her one of these. Is there any chance that you might be posting a pattern for it? It would also look adorable, to make a pair for a little girl.
