Knot Hard To Do – Baby Booties
• Yarn: Weight 4, medium yarn. Examples made using Martha Stewart Cotton Hemp, Peaches & Crème and Red Heart Crème de la Crème.
• Hook: G (4.5mm), or size needed for specified gauge.
Sizing: These measurements are approximate, and actual subjects may vary. If you’ve enjoyed this pattern, you can purchase additional sizes in my ravelry shop!
• 0-3 Month size; 3 ¼” Long by 2” wide. Appx shoe size is 0/1.
• St/Sts: Stitch/Stitches
• Sl St: Slip Stitch
• Ch: Chain
• Sc: Single Crochet
• HDc: Half Double Crochet
• Dc: Double Crochet
Pattern Note: The chain(s) in the beginning of each round count as the first stitch. Please mind rounds 4, 5, 6 and 7 especially; your chain 1 will solely occupy the first stitch of the round, and your first worked single crochet stitch must be placed directly after that (the second stitch of the round). This will cause your seam to slant diagonally to the left.
