Glamour-Baby's First Booties

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend


17 stitches across and 36 rows down should measure 4 in. [10cm] square in garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Cast on 24 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) for 38 rows.

Next Row
*Knit next 2 stitches together, repeat from * across row - 12 stitches remain.
Next Row Knit.

Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail into large-eyed blunt needle, then one at a time through the 12 stitches. Pull tail to gather stitches together. Knot yarn to secure. With same yarn, sew open edges of Bootie together from toe to within 2 1/2 in. [6.25 cm] of opposite end of Bootie.

Sew remaining end of Bootie for back seam. Weave in ends by threading each end into large-eyed blunt needle, then weaving the end through the knitted stitches.

Cut an 18 in. [45.75 cm] strand of yarn. Thread strand into large-eyed blunt needle, and weave through open edge of Bootie, beginning and ending at toe. Repeat for second Bootie.

Tassels (make 4)
1. Wrap yarn around cardboard 10 times. Cut yarn leading from ball.
2. Cut a 4 in. [10.25 cm] length of yarn, thread through top of tassel and tie tightly. Cut yarn strands at other end of tassel open and remove cardboard.
3. Cut a 6 in. [15.25 cm] length of yarn and wrap around tassel tightly several times at midpoint. Weave yarn end into tassel.
Tie tassels to ends of Laces. Tie Laces into bows.

Loved this pattern, perfect for beginners :) I did decrease the stitches as previously suggested but the booties were still a bit big. I might decrease the next set a little more! A lot of fun!!!
