Pink Booties 2

Get the Finish Free Baby Janes Pattern (Click Here)!

Our wonderful accountant Melanie was just blessed with a new Grand Baby.  Addison was a 10 pound bundle of Joy!  Grandma has been knitting fast and furious trying to knit her grand baby a wonderful reversible baby blanket from 100% Superwash merino wool.  I promised I would work on hats, booties, a bonnet, and nice little Mary Jane slippers.  I have come up with a pattern for Mary Janes using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran weight yarn that is knit from the bottom up with no left or right foot and no button holes to worry about.  With Judy's Magic cast on and Jeny's stretchy bind off and using the magic loop method (with ChiaoGoo circular needles) for two at a time slippers, you can be done with this nifty little project before your favorite late night show is over!  I have knit this pattern with different yarns such as pure alpaca, Malabrigo Rios, and Aran weight Debbie Bliss to name a few.  The pattern had to be altered to accommodate the different types of yarn but all of the slippers turned out darling with almost instant gratification.  I hope you all have fun knitting this week.  I am off to finish my knit a sweater in 30 days this weekend so I'll post my accomplishments on that project next week.

Love the Maryjane slippers.
I downloaded the pattern, but do not understand what “m1” means.
Can you explain that stitch?
Thanks!

Cathy, Youtube is very helpful for techniques:
I found Judy’s Magic Cast On HERE by Judy:

And Jeny’s Stretchy Bind Off here by Cat Bordhi (she’s such a joy to learn from!):

Thanks for noticing that we missed part of the instructions! M1 is make one left. Put your needle under the bar between the two stitches and knit that bar through the back loop. We will update the pattern.

Mahalo (thank you) Melissa. I googled the cast on/bind off stitches & found a couple YouTube videos very resourceful.

We've been seeing faux-fur pom poms everywhere lately—they're so cute! They add a touch of chic to any knit hat pattern.

Shop owner Kelley figured out how to make faux-fur pom poms at home, easily and inexpensively, with faux fur from the fabric store and items she had around the house. She's so clever.

Here's a video of the process.

My Journey Through the Norrland Hat Pattern
My Journey Through the Norrland Hat Pattern

by Kelley Hobart December 06, 2018 4 min read

I discovered the Norrland Hat pattern on Ravelry and decided to take on the challenge. I love the trees and snowflakes, and I have never done colorwork and cables at the same time. Since I love learning new things, I bought the pattern immediately and cast on.

I made some modifications, including turning the hat into a slouch instead of a beanie, and I wanted to explain those in case you want to modify your project, too.
