Does anyone know what to do when the heel is done ending in 20 st's. The next id the foot and it starts at 30. How do you add on those 10 st's? the rating is lower as I can't finish the pattern after a lot of work.

What row are you on? There is no row that ends in 20 stitches and needs 30 for the next row. There are corrections to this pattern on the yarnspirations website that are not shown here for the cuff, but no other corrections according to the website.

I'm having a hard time with the "foot shaping" part of this pattern. I feel like it's too /br /What does it mean by "7th to 9th rows Knit. Break /With MC, work 12 (14-16) rows garter st (knit every row)."br /How many stitches are we suppose to put in the garter row? (

I'm finding these instructions a bit /br /"work 12 (14-16) rows garter st (knit every row)."br /br /Exactly what is this suppose to mean? How many stitches are in the garter row?

Looks nice, but I can't understand what MC means "With MC, work 12 (14-16) rows garter st (knit every row)." /

Hello vbuinauskaite 1991 468, "MC" stands for "Main Color." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

It means, Main Colour. Happy knitting!

These baby booties are so sweet. I love the playful pompom on the front. A great gift for any mommy-to-be!

This pattern was my first attempt at booties and it was really easy. I made several because we were expecting our very first grandchildren. I even made one pair for my new grand-daughter while my other daughter-in-law was in labor while sitting the waiting room waiting or the appearance of our grandson!! The pattern does leave some small holes at the toe, but pattern adjustments have been made, I believe, since I made these.

These cute cloud puff booties are sure to keep a lively toddler's feet warm and cozy! I love how the color of the pompoms and soles of the booties match! I think that making the booties will need some attention because stitches are increased and decreased to give the booties their cute shape. Anyone made these booties?
