Loom used is from CinDWoods 15 peg Bootie
Loom (scroll down Catalog to baby slipper $5)
1/2 oz each of Simply Soft Yarn or baby yarn AND a *GOOD QUALITY
fun fur type yarn - You will be using
2 strands throughout! Note from a nurse:
remind the knitters who may not have much contact with
babies to be sure that the fake fur yarn they select for this project
is good quality and not the flimsy " lash" type that comes off in your
hand.. if it does, it will come off in the babies mouth, and that can
be disasterous.... we have had more than a few babies back to the ER
choking on paper labels, bandaids that were put on toes, etc..."
First you are making what I call a 'fake brim'. It's really a chunky
Holding one strand of each type of yarn together, e-wrap the pegs
around the loom 4 times, and knit off 3 wraps over 1 wrap.
Continue e-wrapping and knitting off (1 wrap over 1 wrap/ single
stitch) for about 16 rows or desired length for bootie sock.
CinDWoods newborn bootie loom, I actually knit and knit to what I think
will be the right length, and then I measure from the bottom of the
loom to the beginning 'brim' and quit when it measures 4". Bootie
ends up being about 4.5" total.
REMOVE with the gathering
That's it! Now make another bootie. NO CHAIN in between!
* If you are
worried about choking, you can also make these with JUST the brim in
the FAKE FUR... the rest of the sock would be made using 2 or 3 strands
of Simply Soft or baby yarn!
