Last year I designed a little baby dress called "Shells & Picots Baby Dress." I have finally managed to get the bootie pattern written out and edited. One of my readers also e-mailed me regarding the dress. The way it was written out was confusing. After looking it over I had to agree with her and have re-edited it for a more user friendly appeal. Below you will find the bootie pattern; I will be reposting the dress and bonnet soon. I need to make sure that there are no longer any errors to confuse or discourage anyone.
To make these little booties I used Red Heart's Soft Baby Steps yarn. This yarn is so soft, it is a medium weight worsted yarn. The recommended hook size is I/9/5.5 mm; the recommended knitting needle size is 8/5 mm US. Made of 100% acrylic this yarn is easy care machine wash (gentle) and dry. Soft Baby Steps comes in solid and multi colorways, you can see them all here at Red Heart's Product Page.
For the trim on these cute little booties I used Carons Simply Soft Party. A #4 weight worsted yarn. Made of acrylic with a strand of metallic thread running through it, giving is a bit of sparkle that is perfect for the up coming holidays. You can find all of Caron's pretty colorways here at Yarnspirations product page. The recommended hook size for this pretty sparkly yarn is H/8/5 mm; knitting needle size is US 8.
