Help w/ Easy Baby Booties

Hi there…I’m working on the following pattern:

[B][I]Easy Baby Booties

Yarn: worsted weight

Needles: Size 6 and 8 straight needles

Notions: Yarn needle, stitch marker


With larger needles, CO 33 st. K 12 rows.

Begin decreases for instep:

Row 1: K 13, K2tog, K3, SSK, K across.

Row 2: P 12, P2tbl, P3, P2tog, P across.

Continue decrease pattern until 21 st remain.

Change to smaller needles. Work in K1, P1 rib for 12. Bind off loosely in rib. Sew back and bottom seams. Weave in ends.[/I][/B]

I’m using Bernat Cottontots in Pastel Dreams and instead of using size 8 and 6, i’m using size 6 and 4. Just to clarify…I should begin the decreases at Row 13 right?

After I slip, slip, knit in row 13 I just knit to the end of the row right?

Same ? for Row 14, after I p2tog I just purl to the end of the row right?

This is probably very simple but I’m still learning how to read and interpret patterns. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :mrgreen:

That is correct–you’re reading it right.



I’m also having a little trouble with P2tbl…I’m not sure that I’m doing it right. Is there an tutorial online that can help me out?

Look in the glossary at the top of this forum and scroll down to ptbl and Amy has a video on this–just click on it and it will show you. Good luck.
