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.
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.
