Hi! I will try to post some more things today ( I am trying hard to figure out how to post these pics - hopefully this will work)  Cheesy - i have been knitting about a year now, and have some projects i wanted to share - Everyone here is so talented = what a great fun site! Let me know what you think! Thanks!

this is my first baby sweater = I made a matching hat and maryjanes - going to give it to my neice this weekend for her 1st bday!

** I just realized that these pics are REALLY tiny - i will try to fix and re-post later this afternoon :-)

**Removed picture links that no longer work.**

For picture and pattern notes from our adventurous knitters, see

So cute!  Where is the pattern from?  I am trying to collect baby patterns in anticipation of twin nieces/nephews/one of each who will be born in the fall...  I love the sweater and the maryjanes!  Does the sweater tie at the top? 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

The sweater does have a satin ribbon tie in the back ( leaving a little peep hole for the baby skin :-)  ) - I put satin flowers on the edge of the neckline = The sweater pattern came from the book "Simple Knits for Cherished babies" - It was my first sweater, baby or otherwise and it was really easy to do ....

The maryjanes, out of frustration from not being able to find a baby maryjane pattern ( they all look like booties, with high cuffs!) i made the pattern myself - Here it is , i did it for my 1 year old neice, but i guess you can adjust for whatever size....

Cast on double strand w.weight 14 st
Row 1 - K5, P1, K1, Kf&b, K1, P1, K5 ....
Row 2 - K
Row3- k5, P1,K1, Kf&b, K2,P1,K5
(you should now have 17 st. from increasing )

Continue the following 2 rows until you have knitted 2.5"
Row 1- K5, P1, K5, P1, K5
Row 2 - K

Now change to seed st ( k, p ) for another 1-2" ( depending on how big you want size of foot to be - remember that these will stretch a lot - so make it smaller then the babys foot)

last 3 rows, - K1, K2tog, -
Cut yarn long, and pull strand through final stitches left on needle ( no cast off ) Pull tight and then sew up to mid way of top of shoe....Then fold the back and sew up the "behind the heel" part -
Finishing = Crochet a small chain and attach to make the strap - Add any embellishments ( such as bows or buttons to side of strap) -

Posted as a response to this post:


which asked "adventurous knitters out there to make up a prototype of a pic-less pattern, sight unseen!

I was looking for a nice baby slipper pattern for a colleague's daughter, so this caught my attention right away. It was really very quick and easy to make and the pattern was quite simple to follow but I did have to make a couple of changes to the pattern to make the stitches add up and to ensure that the purl stitches are on the same side throughout. I have put them in red below:

Cast on double strand w.weight 15 st
Row 1 - K5, P1, K1f&b, K1, P1, K5 ....
Row 2 - K
Row3- k5, P1,K1, Kf&b, K2,P1,K5
(you should now have 17 st. from increasing )
Row 4 - K

I have made them in cotton yarn (Sirdar Pure Cotton Double Knitting) and used 2.5mm needles. When I got to the part that reads "change to seed st ( k, p ) for another 1-2inches" I did 1 1/2" and at the end they measure 4" in length.

Here are my pictures:



I think it's a great idea to get members to add pictures of patterns that are without photos. I've often looked through and wondered whether it is worth trying a pattern and been put off because the picture no longer shows up.

Here is my version of the Mary Jane's

Pattern notes, cast on 15 instead of 14. I used lambs pride worsted doubled in teal and yellow.

I can't see a photo of the baby sweater, but the booties are so cute.
Thanks so much for sharing the pattern.
Would you happen to know the gauge?
And am I reading the pattern right? Does it say double stranded worsted weight yarn?
And Tribe, yours are cute too. What size did you end up with?
I'm curious because I have no little ones' near where I live. All of the little one's in my family, live far away.
So it's really nice to know about sizing. And I'm curious on how one could make them larger or smaller.
I'd love to make a pair for myself.   Cheesy A women's size 7.
