Do you know what language it is? I thought maybe Dutch, but the translators can't seem to help so I dont know.

I just used a language guesser (http://translation.langenberg.com/) and it seems to be Norwegian!

From what I get I think it's called Rosa Baby Booties, but I'm not positive. :shrug:

Not sure about Norway, but I have an aunt in Denmark and she can't follow Danish knitting patterns as they hold their needles differently to her (English) so the directions are confusing - maybe it's just continental???

I found a few more samples of them and they all say they're from a pattern from Dansk Mohair but they were also all made in 2005. So it's possible that company is no longer in business. You could try emailing them and asking.

The website is Danish but I can't find an online translator for Danish so I've no idea

Yup, I think Danish. Why don't you try emailing the blogger herself? Her address is just on the right if you click on mail. Ask her if she knows where you can get an English Version. Who knows... maybe if she can't she could translate it for you!

I looked on the Dansk Mohair site too. Sometimes there are buttons to change the language, but I don't seem to find one.

These are SUPER cute. I would love to make a pair!

I did email the blogger several days ago, but haven't heard anything yet. Still hoping to find something. I keep looking at all the sites I can. Thanks for all the help. Sherry

I tried translating from Danish to english and got gibberish for the most part, but norwegian gave me actual english. :shrug:

that's a useful site to know about! Couldn't find Danish on it though! I meant the mohair website ending in DK as that's usually a Danish website, but most Scandinavians I work with understand each other depending on dialect or area they're from as the languages are related - there must be a forum user here who could translate it though!

Still looking, just not finding. At least I've got 50 other knitting projects to keep me busy. Sherry

These are SO cute! Did you see the update on her blog in English on these? (See below).


ATTENTION: (Added March 19, 2007) I get emails just about every day about these booties! I know you love them just as much as I do :D Everyone wants the pattern, or wants to know where to buy it! I have contacted Dansk Mohair and asked if this is a pattern I can share, but they have said no. So you have to email them personally if you want to ask about the pattern! The emailadress is mohair@danskmohair.dk .

I have repeatedly emailed the company, with no luck. Thanks so much to all who helped. Sherry

I was looking for this pattern also, and just happen to come across it by accident posted here (http://susaninstitches.blogspot.com/2007/10/bluebell-bootees.html)

excellent detective work: COUgAR

The only difference that I see is that one has more ridges in a row to make it more 'puffy'... and that would be easy to change.

Or else she put it wrong side out...from the picture it looks like the fat ridge is facing the inside...?

Cougar1 I agree with you. Flipped the other way it would look just like the Danish ones. I am so greatful for this pattern. I can't tell you how I've tried to duplicat this pattern. It was making me crazy. Thanks again!

Opps I was wrong about it being flipped the wrong way. I tried the pattern yesterday and it did not work out like the Danish one. I had to chage the ribbing. After the cast off 10 sts I did a k1 row, p1 row, k1 row repeat seven times. Then keeping in pattern of k1 row, p1 row, k1 row for five repeats k1 one row k2tog the next at the toe end. (had to use pencil and paper for this part because decrease is over 2 rows and pattern is in 3 rows. It doesn't matter if decrease is on a knit or purl row, just keep going. When decrease are finished just continue in pattern except increase over two rows toe end still keeping in pattern of k1 row, p1 row , k1 row. When complete just reverse pattern for other matching side. 3 row pattern 7 times total then casting on 10 sts and knitting for 19 rows (30 sts) then decreasing on toe side every other row five times (25 sts), bind off. You'll have a perfect little bootie with nice chubby ribbing in the toe just like the original website. If this is too confusing I could write it out by rows. Now on to make the second bootie. I don't have a baby for these booties yet but I'll be ready when the time comes.

I've found a pattern that appears to be identical to the Dansk Baby Booties
http://www.knitting-n-crochet.com/knitted-baby-booties.html
The only problem is the finishing directions, they are giving me fits, I believe the letters are incorrectly labeled on the diagram. If this Thead is not dead could someone help please?

I have not made these, but try this....Sew F-E to B-C. This would make a circle to go right around the foot. Gather up G-F and secure. That would make the puffy bit on top of foot. Sew along the bottom. Turn over the A-H part to make a cuff. Let me know if that works, I am going to knit some soon!
