Bootees "Marshmallows"

With the approach of winter and cold, we all want more warmth. It is especially worth taking care of the comfort of children's legs. One of my most remarkable discoveries in the field of knitting was the charming, bright, comfortable to wear booties. I want to share with you the process of making wonderful, delicate Marshmallow booties. Best of all, for knitting a multi-colored miracle, to take children's yarn, it is very tender, soft and non-short. Most often, its composition is as follows: 40% wool, 60% acrylic. We knit booties for 24 sizes, this is an age of about 1.5 - 2 years (up to 15 cm).

For work you will need:
- Yarn:
100 g of gray yarn.
100 g of pink yarn.
- Knitting needles number 2.5.
- A needle with a big eye.
- Scissors.
- A great desire to give joy to your baby.

Work description:
• First you need to put on the knitting needles 32 loops of double thread (knit together with gray and pink thread).

• We knit 69 pieces of garter stitch (we knit all the rows with facial loops).
• Having knitted 69 rows, on the 70th row we close 15 loops. We still have 17, with whom we will continue to work.

• Then we separate the threads and begin to knit as follows:
Row 1. Pink thread. Front loops.
Row 2. Pink thread. Wrong loops.
Row 3. Pink thread. Front loops.
Row 4. Pink thread. Wrong loops.
Row 5. Pink thread. Front loops.
Row 6. Gray thread. Front loops.
Row 7. Gray thread. Wrong loops.
Row 8. Gray thread. Front loops.
Row 9. Gray thread. Wrong loops.
Row 10. Gray thread. Front loops.

! I ask you to pay particular attention to the fact that when switching from one color to another, the row is repeated (the front row with a pink thread and the front row with a gray thread).
• Repeat this pattern until you have six pink and five gray stripes.
• On a pink thread, close the row.

• We begin to sew booties. To do this, it is most convenient to use a needle with a large eye, into which we thread any of the threads (pink or gray).
1. We sew the main part with an additional one, on the side consisting of 17 loops.
2. Sew with a needle “across the top” along the upper striped edge and tighten the thread.
3. Sew with a needle “across the top” along the lower striped edge and tighten the thread.
4. Sew the base of booties.
5. Getting to the decor. Here you can turn on fantasy, pompons, knitted flowers, large buttons, beads are suitable.

Good luck in the process. You should not be limited in the choice of colors, combinations can be the most various, the main thing that they would create bright contrast.
