"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."

Every baby looks cuter with ruffles. These Wildflower Ruffle Baby Booties are guaranteed to increase your baby's cuteness tenfold. With easy baby booties like these, you have to wonder why people still go out and buy them. The coloring and playfulness of the design make these booties perfect for baby girls, but if you like the shaping of the booties, you can always knit your baby boy a pair without the ruffles. Try knitting your little one a matching cardigan or hat with ruffled details for the baby set to end all baby sets.

Round 3: [S2kp, k9 (11, 8), s2kp] 2 times - 22 (24, 20) sts.
Arrange sts so that there are 11 (12,10) sts on each of 2 needles, running parallel to each other along the sole. Graft sts together along center sole. See "Grafting" instructions below. Weave in ends.
With needle and thread, sew ends of B together.
Thread yarn needle with long length of yarn. Hold the two needles in the left hand with wrong sides together. Keeping the yarn needle and yarn under the points of the knitting needles, graft the stitches together as follows:
*1. Insert yarn needle through first st of front needle as if to knit and slip the st off.
2. Insert needle through 2nd st of front needle as if to purl, but leave the st on the needle.
3. Insert yarn through first st on back needle as if to purl and slip the st off.
4. Insert yarn through 2nd stitch on back needle as if to knit, but leave st on needle.
Repeat from * until all the sts are joined.
Take care to draw yarn up so that gauge of grafting equals gauge of knitting. Fasten off. Weave in ends on wrong side.
