Two books later, although it was included as a possibility in the first outline of Whimsical Little Knits 2, it had percolated for long enough. The answer to the proportions issue is, as the answer to more interesting shapes in knitting so often is, short rows. In fact these would be an excellent project on which to try out the technique for the first time. It’s hard to compete with the cuteness of baby toes wrapped in wool, but a lot of trial and error resulted in visual proportions that come as close as possible. The stitches themselves are scaled up, the chunky gauge makes for a project that can be completely almost as quickly as the tiny version and there are few things as wonderfully cozy as walking around the house on a thick bed of garter stitch.
