Ariel Booties - Micro Preemie Keepsake





Good morning lovely people!
Today's pattern is a follow on from last week's jacket. A little pair of simple booties for 16 weeks. They may be more of a keepsake then a wearable, but as I say, it is nice to know the option is there to make something size appropriate. These tiny booties are barely an inch long, and very quick to make.



You will need
2mm hook
Fingering / 4 ply (I used Moda Vera Gelato)
2 small bows

1: ch8, hdc in the 2nd chain from hook, hdc in the next 5 chains, hdc 4 times in the last chain, do not turn, working on the opposite side of the stitches just made (using the same chains) hdc in all 6 stitches, join to the first hdc with a sl st. (16)

2: ch1, 2sc in the first stitch, sc in the next 6 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 3 stitches, sc in the next 6 stitches, join. (20)

3: ch1, sc in each stitch around, join. (20)

4: ch2, hdc in the first 6 stitches, dc2tg 4 times, hdc in the last 6 stitches, join. (16)

5: ch2, hdc in the first 6 stitches, dc2tg twice, hdc in the last 6 stitches, join. (14)

End off main colour. If desired sl st around opening loosely with a contrasting colour.

I added small bows to the top of the bootie with glue.
