Using size US 6 needles, cast on 50 sts and work in garter st for 9 inches.

Neck and shoulder shaping:

To shape the neck, you bind off stitches in the middle of the row. Doing so creates the shoulders, which you then work separately:

Row 2: Bind off 15 sts, k to end of row. (The bound-off stitches form the neck. After these stitches are bound off, you've effectively divided the shoulders; you will proceed to work first one, then the other.)

Work this shoulder in garter st until back measures 10 inches. Bind off shoulder sts.

Pick up remaining sts and repeat shaping from Row 3 for the second shoulder.


With size US 6 needles, cast on 34 sts and work in garter st for 5 inches. Neck shaping:

To create the neck, you decrease stitches along what will become the neck edge.

Rep Rows 1 and 2 until 10 sts remain, then knit until same length as back. Bind off.


With size US 6 needles, cast on 35 sts and work 10 rows in garter st.

Inc at each end every 4th row until you have 55 sts. Work straight until sleeve measures 6 inches. Bind off loosely.


Block the pieces to size.

Sew the shoulder seams, and then set the sleeves into the body. Sew the side seams and sleeves together.

Make a fastener by adding ribbon, a button and buttonhole, or three sets of I-cord ties evenly down the front. (For the I-cord, work six 5-inch ties of 5 sts each on size US 4 needles.)


Booties look complex, but these are anything but. The ribbon trim pulls together the edges to create the top and close across the foot — just right for teeny tiny baby feet!
