Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes (booties)
Published as part of the Global Baby Layette in Suzyn Jackson’s book, Knit It Together.
This baby set covers all the bases. Heads is a snazzy tri-colored hat with fun pom-pom detailing. Shoulders is a baby sized hooded jacket perfect for when baby is on the go. It features a solid body and hood trimmed in seed stitch. The colorful reverse stockinette striped sleeves with a stockinette striped roll-up cuff can be made to grow with baby. Knees and Toes of course refers to baby’s shoes. Three simple designs will keep baby’s toes toasty warm while showing off their budding sense of style. There are sweet Mary-Jane dress shoes for the little ladies, Chuck Taylor © All-Star © Converse that can be made in the solid classic white or in a two-tone sneaker, and a laid back Birkenstock-style bootie that can be customized for boy or girl. All three versions are worked mostly on two needles and feature basic crochet and embroidery.
