Hat and Booties for Z- Finished

image

A simple hat and bootie set for my soon-to-be nephew, Zachary.  I modified the Knotted Newborn Hat pattern I just used, adding more stitches and working a K2, P1 rib.

I was a bit worried about odd striping or  pooling, but the color changes were, happily, nice and subtle.  I actually like it better than if it was a solid color.

My first pair of toe-up socks worked out well.  I really, really love Judy’s Magic Cast-On!  The toe looks fantastic.

I modified this pattern a little bit, too, adding 25 rows of K1, P1 ribbing so the booties have a folded down cuff.  It should stay on better and I like the look of it more than the original.

I’m not the best at short row heels, but they’ll get better looking with more practice.

  1. Very cute set. I love the yarn you chose.

  2. Very nice! That color looks a lot like the color I used for Kai’s socks. It’s just a tad greener.

  3. I love that soft and subtle color change! And Judy’s cast-on is a big favorite of mine too :)

  4. Very cute set :) Your modifications and the yarn colour worked out well ❤
