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.
