Learn to Knit Baby Booties and Hat

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


16 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) 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

BOOTIES (make 2)
Cast on 22 stitches.
Work in Garter Stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) from beginning.
Next Row:
*Knit next 2 stitches together, repeat from * across row - 11 stitches remain.
Knit 1 row.
Cut yarn, leaving a long yarn tail. Thread yarn tail into large-eyed blunt needle, then draw needle through the remaining 11 stitches. Pull to gather stitches together and knot yarn to secure. With same yarn, sew open edges of Bootie together from toe to within 2 in. (5 cm) of opposite end of Bootie.

Sew remaining end of Bootie for back seam.
Weave in ends.

Learn to Knit Baby Booties and Hat Reviewed by Catherine on 2015-11-13 *****
Very easy little newborn set to make as a gift, or for yourself if you're expecting. I made this in a lovely heather blue for a friend of a family member. I was able to finish both booties in an hour and the hat in about 3. I tightened up the top of the hat where the ribbon goes, with extra yarn before adding the ribbon so the top would stay closed.
