Teeny Tiniest BootiesTeeny Tiniest Booties

From Newsletter Spring 2001

Materials - *Baby Sport yarn – one main color, very small amt. for trim, if desired. *Size G hook OR Use whatever yarn and hook you’d like. These are tiny booties. If you want them bigger, use worsted yarn and a larger hook, etc. *Small amt. of ¼ or 1/8 inch ribbon in contrasting color.

With main color, ch 6
Rnd 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook (first two ch will be considered first dc), dc in the next 2 chs. 3 dc in end ch. Working in unused loop on opposite side of ch, work 1 dc in the next 2 ch, 2 dc in last ch. (11 dc) DO NOT JOIN OR TURN
Rnd 2: Sc on top of beg ch. [Place marker to mark this as first stitch]. Sc in next 4 dc. 3 sc in next dc, sc in the next 4 dc. 3 sc in last st. (15 sc)
Rnd 3 & 4: sc around, moving marker to keep place
Rnd 5: sc around, but work 2 sc in last stitch. (16 sc). Ch 1, turn.
Rnd 6: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each of the next 3 scs. Work 4 sc decreases in the next 8 scs (to decrease, pull up a loop in the next 2 stitches, yo, pull through all loops), 1 sc in each of the next 3 scs, 2 sc in last sc. (14 sc) Ch 1 turn
Rnd 7: Sc in the next 6 scs. Dec over the next 2 sc, 1 sc in each of the remaining scs. (13 sc) Ch 2 turn
Rnd 8: 2 hdc in first sc. 1 hdc in the next 5 scs. Work 2 hdc in next sc. 1 hdc in the next 5 scs. 2 hdc in last sc. (16 hdc) Ch 1
Rnd 9: This is the trim round. Change to coordinating color yarn, if desired.
If this bootie is for a boy, do reverse sc around (sc in the stitch to the RIGHT of the one you’re in. It’s awkward at first, but a very, very nice trim – try it!).
If this bootie is for a girl, do this: Ch 2, *skip the next hdc, sc in the next, ch 3, sk one hdc, sc in the next, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Finish off and weave in all loose ends.
To add the ribbon, thread ribbon with a yarn or tapestry needle and weave it through the openings in the hds in Round 8. I make the ribbon tie in the front, but it’s cute tied in the back as well.
