Crossover Booties Knitting Pattern
Yarn: any worsted weight yarn
Needles: size US 8 knitting needles [Make 2]
For 3 Months (size 6 and 9 month are in parenthesis)
Cast on 30 (34, 38) stitches. Work in Garter Stitch for 12 (14, 15) rows. Bind off 11 (12, 13) stitches at the beginning of the next row. Finish row. Bind off 11 (12, 13) stitches at the beginning of the next row- this leaves you with 8 (10, 12) stitches in the middle. Garter Stitch remaining stitches for 22 (24, 26) rows. Bind off.

How to finish the booties
|Here is the finished piece. It looks like the letter "T". The upper part will become the back and side of the bootie. The thinner, bottom part will be the footbed|
|Take one side of the upper part of the "T" and place it on top of the footbed|
|Take the other side of the "T" and place it on top of the 2 layers. Using a yarn needle, sew the bootie together at the toe and the sides. Turn inside out when finished|
