Red Riding Booties

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 20, 2009

And the booties to match…

The only part I had problems with was the cuff. I mis-read the repeat portion but was able to sort it out from a thread on Ravelry. Turns out the cuff is made using short rows.

Since all types of booties and socks fall off my baby’s feet easily I added a tie-string. My girl has big feet (oh how she takes after her mom!) so the 6-9 months fit her pretty well at 3 months.

Pattern: Garn Studio Drops baby pattern 16-1

Size made: 6-9 months

Yarn: Caron One Pound

Needle size: 10.5 dpn

Red Riding Hood

Posted by 2ton Inspired on February 2, 2009

I’m probably being bias but how cute is my baby in this poncho?? 🙂

Little Red Riding Hood

It was super easy and quick to make, which is great since I have had little time for knitting since our baby’s arrival. The pattern is also easy to read, unless I’ve been making too many Drops pattern that the lingo is getting easier to understand. I remember having a real hard time with the first Drops pattern I made.

Anyway, I added the pom-pom for extra cuteness. I thought it only appropriate for a baby’s hood to have a pom-pom. I also doubled the yarn for the tie string.

I made the smallest size. My baby is 2 months (10 pounds) and it fits her nicely. The hood is a bit large and will give her some room to grow into it. I couldn’t be happier with the results.
