Ugg Booties Mods

So I thought since I had such an issue getting the Ugg Booties to come out right, I would post the mods that I used... I didn't write these mods, but I thought I would repost anniam's mods so that they might be easier to find.

Cast on 12 sts, K1 row

Row 1: k1, yf, k4 [yf, k1] twice, yf, k4, yf, k1
row 2, 4, 6, 8, 10: Knit, when you reach the yf knit in the back of the stitch

row 7: k4, yf, k4, yf, k5, yf, k6, yf, k4, yf, k4

work in stockenette stitch for 2 inches, ending with a purl row
change to plush (trim yarn) and work 2 rows knit, BO.

weave plush yarn under and over stitches on sides of booties and over instep. Sew bottom seam and back seam.

There you go! I have 2 pairs to make before sept for some girls I work with. I think they will be pink!
