Booties

Lion Brand« Superwash Merino Cashmere

GAUGE:

21 sts + 48 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1 st) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.

Simple and quick Reviewed by Stephanie on 2014-03-06 ****
I've made a few pairs of these as gifts and they were quick and easy to do. I would put myself at an Advanced Beginner level. My only wish is that there were instructions for more than one size. I made some for my little boy when he was a newborn and he grew out of them very quickly. I am not good at adjusting patterns for size on my own, so I would love to see more size options in the directions for these, especially since it is an Easy+ level.
