Help with Cherished Babies bootie pattern
I should have posted this question in the How To forum, but originally found a link in the General forum, so here it is........

I need help with this pattern (from the book Simple Knits for Cherished Babies - the Cashmere Booties) ! I have gotten through the first part....

This is what I have done so far:

Cast on 29 (22:37) stitches and work 10 (10:12) rows stocking stitch. Knit 19 (22:25) stitches, turn. Purl 9 (11:13) stitches, turn. On 9 (11:13) stitches, work 14 (14:16) rows in stocking stitch. Break yarn.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what to do next?????

With right side of work facing, rejoin yarn to the inside edge of the 10 (11:12) stitches and pick up and knit 7(9:11) stitches along the side of the foot, knit across 9 (11:13) stitches on the needle, pick up and knit 7 (9:11) stitches along the other side of the foot and finally knit along the remaining 10 (11:12) stitches.

I know Chris has done these booties, so maybe you would have the answer to this question. But I am willing to listen to anyone that can give me some help. I thought being new these would be relatively easy, but now I am sitting here confused.

Sara-- Did you ever figure this out? I just got to the same EXACT spot as you were describing and am exactly as confused as you were! Can you tell me what to do next?

Basically you've started out knitting the part of the bootie that goes around the ankle. The middle 9 stitches that you continued knitting are like the top of your shoes where they lace up. Now the pattern call for you to knit the sides and sole of the bootie. What you have should look like an fat, inverted letter T. You're to pick up 7 stitches starting at the inside angle of the T (where the horizontal bar crosses the vertical line). Those 7 stitches are picked up along the 14 rows you've just finished. Then knit across the 9 stitches live stitches (which you've held on a needle), then pick up 7 stitches on the other side of the 14 knit rows. Now you have almost all the stitches on your needles except for the 10 on each side of the crossbar of the T. So put the closest 10 on a needle and knit and then the pattern probably tells you to turn the work and purl back (or whatever stitch the pattern tells you) and finally add on the last 10. The bootie will be open down the back of the foot. I hope this isn't more confusing!

This post is nearly 6 yrs old and the OP hasn't posted here since 2009.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
