QUICK AND EASY TINY BOOTIES
copyright 2002 Yvonne Boucher - All Rights Reserved

I designed these booties for the two and three pounders in NICU.  I wanted something not only the right size but something that would stay on without ties.  The skin of these little ones is so fragile the nurses do not use the ties

Materials:  Yarn—Any worsted weight yarn.  Note:  I would stay away from Red Heart
                     Super Saver, however.  It is more a chunky weight than worsted weight.

                     Hook---Any hook that will carry the yarn comfortably.  I used a J, but I
                     crochet very tightly.

Gauge:         Finished size of sole is 2” to 2 ”

Note:  The entire piece is worked round and round from the right side.

Row 1:  Chain 6.  2 sc in second ch from hook, sc in each of next 2 chs, hdc in next ch, 5 dc in end ch.  Now working down the other side of chain, hdc in next ch, sc in each of next 2 chs, 2 sc in next ch.  Join.
Row 2:  Ch 1, 2 sc in same st as join, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2 sc in each of next 3 sts, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st.  Join.
Row 3:  Ch 1.  Sc in back loop of joining stitch and in the back loop of every stitch around.  Join.  (20 stitches)
Row 4:  Ch 1.  Sc in same st as join, sc in each of next 7 sts, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in next st, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 7 sts.  Join.
Row 5:  Ch 1.  Sc in same st as join, sc in each of next 6 sts, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in next st, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 6 sts.  Join.
Row 6:  Ch 1.  Sc in same st as join, sc in each of next 5 sts, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in next st, sc decrease over next 2 sts, sc in each of next 5 sts.  Join.
Cuff:  Ch 2 (counts as first hdc here and throughout).  Hdc in next st and each st around.  Join.  (14 hdc)  Repeat this row 2 more times (3 rows hdc)  Fasten off.  Weave in end.  Turn down cuff.
