31  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Cute hat and bootie set to knit! on: September 30, 2005 09:55:50 AM
Hello! This is my first post, so hopefully I don't muck up the photos.

I'm making a ton of these this year. They knit up really fast on straight needles and you just sew them up the seams when you're done.

The Hat
Needle size depends a lot on how big you want the hat to be and how thin/thick your wool is. This hat was made on fairly thin wool, I used 4mm needles and it's a little on the small size. This hat will fit a newborn.



Cast on 50 stitches

Knit 2, purl 2 for the whole first row
Then purl 2, knit 2 for the whole second row.
Keep going like that until you've done 5 rows of each.

Knit the next row, then purl the row after that and keep going like that until you've done 6 rows of each.

Now, knit 2 stitches together for the whole row.

Purl the entire next row.

Knit 2 stitches together for the whole row again.

And purl the last row.

Now, leave a tail of wool and cut your wool. Thread your wool through a large needle, and sew up the side of the hat. You'll also have to do the same with the other tail you have hanging from when you started.

And now the booties
Needle size depends a lot on how big you want the booties to be and how thin/thick your wool is. These booties were made on sort of thick wool, I used 3.5mm needles. These will fit a newborn.



Cast on 20 stitches

Knit 15 rows in garter stitch (just plain knitting)

Now, for the pattern at the toe:
Knit 2, (purl 1, knit 1) 3 times, knit 5, (purl 1, knit 1) 3 times, knit 1
Next row - (knit 1, purl 1) 4 times, knit 4, (purl 1, knit 1) 4 times

Continue with that two row pattern until you've knit 5 rows of each. Am I making sense? Do the first row, then the second row, and then teh first row again until you've got 5 of each.

Now, knit 2 stitches together for the whole row.

Purl the next row.

And knit 2 stithes together for the whole row again.

Now, just like with the hat, sew up the slipper. Here, the tail of wool you're ending with will stitch up the top of the slipper and the tail of wool you had hanging at the beginning will stitch up the heel.

Please let me know of these instructions made sense.  Smiley
