Barnyard Booties

Posted in Finished Objects at 12:06 pm by merknits

I’m very happy with these – good for a baby shower gift, don’t you think?

Pattern: Barnyard Booties, originally published in Interweave Knits, Summer 2000 but available as part of the “Baby Knitting Patterns” pdf from Knitting Daily
Yarn: Dale of Norway Baby Ull
Notes: Very cute and fairly quick pattern. It has some tricky parts that require picking up loops from the WS and knitting them together with live stitches, but I found that putting the WS loops on a slightly smaller dpn and then knitting that together with the working dpn made it not so bad. You can see that I did a better job of that on the bottom of the face of the guy on the left than on the right, but that’s ok. I might make another pair of these for another friend who will be having a baby soon!
