I finally finished the Footies for my granddaughter. The goal was to have them done in time for her to wear to the hospital when she went to deliver her 2nd baby. Her first child was a girl, and this one is a boy, so I made them both pink and blue. As it turned out, she delivered Michael Kenneth on Tuesday, and I didn’t get these finished until yesterday. But they are all done, washed, and drying on the blockers.
They were done two-at-a-time, on Size 0 circulars (yeah… size ZERO!). I started with a Turkish cast-on of 14 wraps, then increased every other round until I had 34 on each needle, or 68 stitches around. Each stripe is 12 rounds, so from end-of-toe to start-of-heel is 90 rounds total. I had to calculate the stripes just right so that the heel would split a stripe in exactly the middle.
The cuff is 12 rounds of 2×2 ribbing, with a crocheted single-crochet stitch all around. These are some earlier Etisoppe Footies (“opposite”) made a few years ago, in a sport weight. You can find the pattern on the Patterns Page. with the sport weight instructions. You can determine your own measurements as needed based on your foot size, selected yarn and needles.
