Whew! it has been a really crazy week. I am glad the weekend is here and I can relax. I also have a few gifts I wanted to send by mail to a friend who just had a baby girl. I did not want to spend too long making something for the baby, so I decided to make something really quick, but really cute!
For this project you will need:
Brava yarn from Knit Picks / We Crochet in two different colors for the base (shoe) and the bow. I used white and hot pink. Any other worsted weight acrylic yarn will do.
Size 8 knitting needles. I prefer regular in size 7 because I like my stitches to feel a bit tighter.
I also got a new bitty gadget to count my rows. This is definitely optional since you can keep count on a piece of paper writing tally marks.
k2tog: knit 2 together
cast on 18. leave a long tail because we will be using it to sew seams later.
Row 1 to 28: knit across
Row 29 and 30: *k1, k2tog, k1* repeat ** until the end
Leave another long tail for sewing and cut the yarn. thread the yarn in the yarn needle. Pass the stitches from the knitting needle to the yarn needle. pull to close the stitches
sew along the border, leaving about 1 1/2 of opening. fasten off and weave ends
move to the heel, thread the yarn into the needle and sew the seams. Fasten off and weave the ends
with the contrasting yarn cast on 6 sts and knit a few rows until it measures about 2 1/2 inches. fasten off and weave ends. With the main yarn, sew and wrap around the middle to form a bow. Sew into the shoe. Fasten off and weave ends
And you’re done!
