Pattern: Lavish Baby Booties
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere (the blue ones) and Koigu painter’s Palette Premium merino (yellow)
Mods: The blue ones are exactly as the pattern, but the yellow are just the stockinette version of the same pattern.
Notes: I feel like this would be much better knit in a DK weight yarn, as the
4mm needles seemed a little large for the fingering weight, but then
again, I bet that gives the booties some extra stretch for when those
little feet start growing quickly.
I knit the blue booties first,but wasn’t sure how I felt about the garter stitch. So I experimented with the stockinette, and I think I really like both of them- for different reasons. I am planning on embroidering the yellow ones, but I was thinking of putting her name on them. So… I won’t be doing that until after she’s born. 😉
