A Bootie for your Baby

It was a few months ago when I tried the ever so cute baby bootie pattern. I was gearing up and ready to get the booties flowing. I had my pattern from RedHeart, my yarn, my hooks and some free time.

  Now, I am not a master at the art of crochet by far, but I have made my way around the hook and yarn a few times. After reading the pattern, I felt confident that I could make these booties with ease. Boy was I wrong.  


The pattern was fairly simple. And it is even on a level of expertise I am most comfortable with, easy. But I would soon learn that sometimes it doesn't matter how easy the pattern is, or how experienced you are, you may need some help figuring things out. My First Attempt

What went wrong you ask. Well I will tell you. It all started looking a little funny around round . That is when they called for a dc2tog. Well confident as I was I pushed through. Looked down and said there is no way. I took it apart, reworked the round, shook my head and repeat. Finally I called in my reinforcement.
Megan to the Rescue
She showed me what that nasty little dc2tog really meant and I haven't looked back yet.
And there you have it. A Bootie for your Baby.
