Michelle Baby Booties

Help. I was looking for an easy baby bootie pattern and came across Michelle Preemie Newborn Booties pattern.

Stuck…when I begin the decreases I don’t understand what I need to do, I can do the first row and continue on with the Purl part of pattern, but when I get to the knit row again, how do I know how many to knit before doing the K2 tog’s.

Hope someone is familar with this pattern, I wanted easy and right now, I am thinking, :whoosh:what was I thinking.


k10, k2tog, k1, k2tog, k10
p9, p2tog, p1, p2tog, p9
k8, k2tog, k1, k2tog, k8
p7, p2tog, p1, p2tog, p7

Each row, you’re knitting or purling one less on each side of the dec, 1 st., dec. That center stitch will always be in the same place. Put a marker next to it if that will help, and always decrease on each side of it.

Ingrid, thank you.

All I can say on my part is Duh! But I guess this is how I learn. Thank you, now back to the baby booties.
