DROPS Knitting Tutorial: How to work garter stitch from Garnstudio Drops design on Vimeo.


Cast on 36-38-40 sts on double pointed needles size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand medium gray (or color no 3720 medium pink) and 1 strand gray mix. Work rib K 1/P 1 in the round until piece measures approx. 10 cm / 4''.

Now keep the first 9-11-11 sts on the round on the needle, slip the remaining 27-27-29 sts on a stitch holder.

Continue with rib back and forth over the 9-11-11 sts for upper foot piece - AT THE SAME TIME on 1st row cast on 1 new st in each side (edge st) = 11-13-13 sts.

When 7-8.5-10 cm / 2 3/4''-3 1/4"-4" have been worked, bind off starting on a RS row 1 edge st in each side, by binding off 1 st in the beg of next 2 rows = 9-11-11 sts.

Work next row from RS: work the 9-11-11 sts in rib as before, then inside 1 edge st pick up 12-14-16 sts along the side of the upper piece, then slip the 27-27-29 sts from stitch holder back on needle work them in rib as before, and finally pick up 12-14-16 sts along the other side of the upper piece (pick up inside 1 edge st) = 60-66-72 sts on needle.

Now measure piece from here.

Insert 1 marker mid front of toe and 1 marker mid back on heel. Continue in the round with rib as before for 2 cm / 3/4''.

Now finish the piece in stockinette st - AT THE SAME TIME K 2 sts tog on each side of both markers on every other round (= 4 sts less per round).

Continue dec until stockinette st section measures 3-3-4 cm / 1 1/8"-1 1/8"-1½" – bind off.

Sew tog seam mid under foot in outermost st to avoid a chunky seam.

Cast on 15-17-17 sts on needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 1 strand medium gray and 1 strand gray mix.

Work as follows: 1 st in GARTER ST - see explanation above, * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 1 and 1 st in garter st.

Oh Baby! Just Look at These Crochet Projects!

Holy holiday cuteness! We've recently discovered Jessica Veara of Dandified, who is new to our crafting community! Jessica, an uber-talented crochet artist, as you can plainly see, was gracious enough to share some of her recent projects with us. You can find even more on her Facebook page as well as information about ordering custom designs and patterns. But be warned: You may become overwelmed by the adorableness, like we were!

Jessica has partnered with some amazing photographers, including Lambs and Lullabies Photography, who photographed the snowman beanie, shown above left, and Abba Color Photography, who captured the teeny tiny Santa, above right. In the middle are a few other designs Jessica has made. 

Crocheting beautiful baby items starts with a great idea, a precious patter and, of course, the right yarn. Here are just a few selections from the Craft Attitude super store that are ideal for these types of projects, if you're inspired by Jessica like we are.
