Gather up your favourite sock yarn leftovers! 

We’ve all been missing out on gatherings and on gathering our loved ones close over the past two years. Gather Booties are a perfect way to give a virtual hug! The simple gather stitch on the cuff looks fantastic in solids, tonals, striping, and variegated yarn. The booties are knitted in the round and have an inside ribbed cuff that helps them stay snugly on busy baby feet. They make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.

Finished sole length approximately:
2.5, (3, 3.25, 3.5, 4)” | 6.5, (7.5, 8, 9, 10) cm
Size will vary according to yarn selection and personal gauge.

--Approx. 14-28g fingering weight yarn
--US #1 | 2.25 mm needles OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
--Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Gauge is not critical, but it will affect the finished size of the booties. You are aiming for a fairly dense, rather than a loose, knitted fabric.
Approx. 32 sts = 4” | 10 cm in stockinette stitch.

Techniques include knit, purl, increases and decreases, knitting in the round, slipped stitches, short rows, casting on, binding off.
