An adventure in Bear Booties - Part 2

I think this is going to work. As far as I've gotten, I've gotten over the claw.

It was a little surprising to find that our stuffed bear has really long claws, since they're completely obscured by his fur.

This is obviously not a teddy bear!

So, continuing on from where we left off, we are now technically about to start Round 16. For this foot, this will be the last round we knit.

Round 16: Knit 14, cast of 20, knit to end of row (which will be the remaining 14 from this round, plus the 14 we just knit in this round.

Always slip the stitch as if to purl.

Row 17: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end. (Total number of stitches = 28)
Row 18: Turn, slip first stitch and knit to end.
Row 19: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end.
Row 20: Turn, slip first stitch and knit to end.
Row 21: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end.
Row 22: Turn, slip first stitch and knit to end.
Row 23: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end.
Row 24: Turn, slip first stitch and knit to end.
Row 25: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end.
Row 26: Turn, slip first stitch and knit to end.
Row 27: Turn, slip first stitch and purl to end.

In the next section I use an increase called a make one. If you're unfamiliar with make one left and make one right, this video shows how to make it and what it's good for.
