A quick and quite easy bootie pattern for patriotic babies which is knitted flat and then finished with a simple seam. Bootie size can be varied by using a different weight of yarn and a different needle size, allowing a range of sizes to fit 0 – 12months (depending on baby’s foot size).
The 0-3 month size uses baby (3ply) or light fingering weight yarns and US 1s, and the 6-9 month size uses sport weight yarn and US 2s.
The stitch count at the end of the Instep section should be 39 stitches and not 41 as written in the pattern.
In the Cuff section, the following two rows should read as follows:
- Row 7: k1C2, k1M, k3C2; repeat from to end.
- Row 10: p1C2, p1M, p3C2; repeat from to end.
