If you have leftover bulky weight yarn like Baby Clouds and would like to make newborn booties, here is a quick, yet pretty pattern for you to use. It's a lot like my Bev's VERY Easy Booties pattern. Makes an upsidedown T shape.
1 skein (6 oz) Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn makes about 6 pairs
Size K hook
Row 1: Dc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across. Ch 2 and turn. (Makes 16 dc including the first ch 3)
Row 2: Dc in the ch 2 base - so it looks like there are 2 dc in one stitch., then dc to the end on the row in each stitch. DON'T Ch 2, just turn. (17 dcs - since you must dc in that very last st!)
Row 3: Sl st in top of first 3 dc. Ch 2 to form a dc, then dc in each stitch across - leaving 3 sts unstitched. Ch 2 and turn. (12 Dcs)
Row 4: Dc in the ch 2 base - so it looks like there are 2 dc in one stitch, then dc in each dc to end of row. End off by cutting a yarn tail about 13" long, and pull through last stitch. (13 Dcs)
Fold bootie in half and stitch around seam. Turn bootie right side out, and fold down top row of the cuff.
If you have no place to send them, I can sure use them for UMC hospital in Vegas.
