Grey Booties Tutorial
Hook : J
Yarn: Lion Brand Jiffy
HDC-HALF DOUBLE CROCHET
DC2TOG-DOUBLE CROCHET 2 STITCHES TOGETHER
-DC IN THE 3RD CH FROM THE HOOK AND IN EVERY CH, CH 2, TURN
-HDC EVERY DC, CH 2, TURN
-HDC EVERY HDC, CH 2, TURN
-HDC THE FIRST 6 HDC, DC2TOG THE NEXT 14 STITCHES, HDC LAST 7 HDC, CH 1, TURN
-SS THE FIRST 6 HDC, DC2TOG THE NEXT 8 STITCHES, SS THE LAST 6 HDC
- FASTEN OFF
It will now look like this:
Using a needle and yarn of the same color, hide the tails, and then seam together both the heel, and the bottom of the bootie
Turn right side out, and this is what it will look like now!
Now, you may wish to add a cuff / ankle height to the bootie, here is the pattern for that:
With the bootie WRONG side out, locate the left side of the top of the heel of the bootie
Insert the yarn here, and CH 2
-THEN HDC EVERY STITCH AROUND THE ENTIRE TOP OF THE BOOTIE
-SS TO THE TOP OF THE CH 2, AND CH 2
-HDC EVERY HDC, SS TO THE CH 2, CH 2
(DO THIS FOR A TOTAL OF 3 ROWS, OR UNTIL IT REACHES YOUR DESIRED HEIGHT)
FASTEN OFF, AND HIDE THE TAILS, ENJOY!
