|Booties and Hats
A DK pattern for some cute booties and hat sized for newborn to 12 months.
This adorable little set is knitted flat and seamed and takes no time at all. Great for a quick baby gifts or stocking fillers.
Suitable for the beginner with a little experience, there are some decreases that you may not have come across before. These along with explanations are given in the abbreviation section of the pattern. Also have a look in the tutorial section of my website for how to work some stitches.
Make it your own. You can choose two very contrasting colours, as I have here with the purple and peach sets, or a more subtle look go with a single colour.
Choose colours to match a particular favourite outfit or make the contrast colour something neutral like a light grey which would go with almost anything.
Ideal to use up some left-overs from other baby projects the set takes very little yarn, especially the contrast pieces.
To fit approx. ages: 0-3 [3-6, 6-12] months
Hat: Finished circumference: 35.5 [40, 46] cm / 14 [16, 18] inches

DK weight baby yarn. The samples were knitted in Sirdar Snuggly DK.
1 ball each of two colours; a main colour (MC) and a contrast colour (CC)
This amount will make both booties and hat.
Or, buy a main colour and use leftovers for the contrast colour.

Please check your tension, a variation in tension will result in a change of size.
