Ann Norling Booties and Hat...

I finally finished the booties to match the hat. There's a HUGE defect with the booties but I think I've managed to hide it in the presentation.

This was knit on size 4 needles with Baby Dahl yarn. The pattern called for a garter stitch cuff with a K3 P1 K1 P1 rib and then basic garter stitch. All three portions were completed on one needle. The back and bottom of the bootie were seamed at the end.

Ugg booties with inner cuff

(Click for larger) I was eager to try a simple two-needle bootie pattern, but I thought the Ugg pattern needed a ribbed cuff to stay on. So, I added a hidden one inside the bootie.

To do this, I picked up along the inside of the ankle with a smooth yarn, worked four rows of stockinette, and finished with about a dozen rows of ribbing.

The ribbed cuff gets seamed first. (Then you get to pick the eyelashes out of the fashion yarn, so you can sew up with it.)

When you are done, the ribbing is hidden inside the bootie.
