Good morning everyone,
Today I have another little bootie pattern for you. This one is for bubs of 30 weeks gestation, working up with a 6cm sole and with only 5 rounds and a simple gathered tie, they are super fast to make and excellent scrap busters.
You will need:
dk weight (8ply) yarn in main colour
a very small amount of yarn in a contrasting colour for the gather and bow. I have used 3/4/5/8 ply successfully. You could also use ribbon.
R1: ch9, dc in the 3rd from hook twice, dc in the next 5 chains, 4dc in the end chain, Working on the opposite side of the stitches just made (into the backs o the chains) dc in the next 5 stitches, 2dc in the 1st stitch, join.
R2: ch1, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in the next 6 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in the next 6 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, join. -24
R3: ch3, dc back loop only in each stitch around, join. -24
R4: ch2, hdc in the first 7 stitches, hdc2tg 5 times, hdc in the last 7 stitches, join. -19
R5: ch1, sc in each stitch around, join.
Take a small length of yarn or ribbon and starting at the toe, weave it in and out of the sc stitches from R5. Pull slightly to gather the ankle opening a little and tie a bow.
Repeat a second time for the next bootie, and you are finished! 1 set from start to finish takes me about 20 minutes. Super fast!
