"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Sugary sweet and equally as cute, the Candy Shoppe Baby Booties are the knits to beat for your little one. This darling knit baby bootie pattern is a simple way to keep baby's tiny tootsies warm and covered all season long. The simple design lends itself to any number of yarn colors or prints. Have fun experimenting with different colored ribbon for a cute bow finish.

Instructions not clear especially with the 11 stitches on hold. Where should I add them? Baby due in 3 days need to finish asap. Thanks

According to the pattern as written, they are being held until the last knit row, then cast off with the other stitches.

I am having trouble with directions starting with "Shape foot." From where or how do I "pick up stitches" so they are increasing. Got lost.
Aug 04, 2020
You are picking up the stitches form the piece that you have already knit, to create the foot.

With the news of me going to be a grandma, these booties were the first I knitted. Quick and easy. I prettied them up with embroidering roses across the front of the booties. They were just to cute. I must for the new baby!
