From 1st to 8th row sets pattern.
Rep pattern 3 more times, each time sliding remaining six stitches to the end of the needle, in order to have room on the needle to cast on the next six stitches to repeat pattern.

DO NOT cut yarn on fourth repeat after Row 8 is finished.

There now will be four sets of lace edging pieces on the left needle (24 sts.)

With working yarn from the last completed edging piece, bind off all stitches on the needle. DO NOT cut yarn. Now all lace pieces are connected and ready to be grafted to the cuff.

* Click on link for my four video tutorial series on making lace pieces:


Place the lace edge on the top of bootie cuff and line up the lace edge bound off stitches to the bootie stitches on needle. Use one of the two following methods to graft pieces together evenly across:
1. Using a crochet hook (D or F), insert hook into first stitch of lace edge and first stitch on needle, yarn over and draw through both stitches, place that stitch on a new knitting needle (size 5). 
2. Knit the pieces together: insert the right needle into the first stitch from lace edge and the first stitch from the bootie cuff and knit the stitches together; continue across until all stitches are grafted.

Next two Rows: k1, p1 ribbing across.

Bind off loosely in pattern, leaving a tail to seam bootie. After seaming, thread 1/4″ ribbon through eyelets, and tie a bow.

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
