I totally love how quickly these knit together.

NOTE I did amend the booties so that they’re about 30% larger than the pattern calls for. The booties, according to the pattern, are SUPER small. These have 9 stitches across the sole, 12 stitches across each side and 13 rows to establish the sides.

I made no changes to the hat except I did begin the decreases at just over 4” rather than at 4.75” (what the pattern called for for the newborn hat size). I know this yarn grows.
