AGirlNamedEgypt here and welcome to my first AGirlNamedEgypt Knits post!
Today im going to show you all how to make some really cool Bootees.
K = Knit P = Purl ST= Stitch K2 tog = Knit two together
First you will need to gather your supplies
What you will need
- 10g of 3ply baby yarn ( though I used 4ply as it was the only one I could find in the color I wanted, its fine to use 4pyl the bootee will just be slightly bigger)
- 80 cm of 7mm wide ribbon
- 3.25 mm Knitting Needles which makes 7.5cm bootee length( if you want if smaller use 3mm with makes 7cm or if you wish it bigger use 3.75mm to make 8.25cm )
- Darning Needle ( To sew up seams )
Cast on 43sts.
Row 1. K1, knit twice into next st, K18, knit twice into next st, K1, Knit twice into next st, K18, Knit twice into next st, K1.( 47sts )
Rows 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10. Knit
Rows 3, 5, 7, 9 ,11. K1, Knit twice into next st, K20, Knit twice into next st, K1, Knit twice into next st, K20, Knit twice into next st, K1. ( 51 sts )
Continue in this manner until there are 28 sts between the increases ( 67sts )
Row 12. K2 tog, Knit to last2 sts, K2 tog.
Work pattern as follows:
Row 1. K1, * (K1, P1, K1 ) into next st, P3 tog, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2. Purl.
Row 3. K1, * P3 tog, ( K1, P1, K1 ) into next st, Repeat from * t end of Row.

Repeat these 4 rows once, then row 1 once more.

Next Row. Slip 1, K9, K2 tog, Turn work.
Repeat this last row until there are 17sts each side of the instep. ( 45sts )
Next row. Slip 1, K10, P17.
Next Row. Knit ( 45sts )
ANKLE and TOP
Next row. K1 * yfwd, K2 tog, repeat from * to end of row
Work 5 rows in ( K1, P1 ) rib.
Work the 4 pattern rows twice more.
Knit other bootee to match
Finish of ends and sew up seams.
Thread ribbon through holes around ankle.
And here’s the finished result, I chose a lemon colour as it is Unisex but you could choose any colour.
I think they would make a pretty awesome Christmas present.
