these are the cabled layette matching booties. The pattern is written for dbl pointed needles but I changed it for straights, the only tricky part is the picked-up stitches around in the instep, the first row is a little tight but do-able.they match this sweater I made a few weeks ago.
my camera is changing the colors again......the booties are more the true color of this yarn. It's Bernat Softee Baby new color tutti fruitti, they have several other new shades out too, check out their website! I sure wish they would make a nice solid peach or a bright orange.
I started another set in Bernat Softee baby lilac, this time I am trying to stop the curl on the edges by slipping the first stitch of each row as if to purl, it's better but still not quite lying flat.... anyone have any suggestions?
This is the little booklet the pattern came from:
Creative Hands, dated 1981 called BABYLAND book # 412, orginally sold $1.00. The cover shows a yellow shell crochet layette set. 18 pages in all.
I have a busy weekend, that's all for now!
