Step 2: Getting Started

For this pattern you are working in rounds. This means you will not be turning your work after each line of instructions.

Bootie: (Make 2 the Same)

Using larger hook and cc yarn, ch 11 loosely.

Set Up: 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc crochet in next 8 ch sts, 4 sc in last ch space, do not turn. Rotate your work 180 degrees to the right so that the row of sc you just worked is pointing down. You will now work across the bottom loops of your original ch. 1 sc in next 8 bottom loops of ch, 2 sc in last bottom loop (this is the same space you began in), sl st in first sc -- 24 sc sts total.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, 2 sc in 1st sc, 1 sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 1 sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in last st, sl st to beginning ch -- 28 sc sts total.
