BOOTIE:
Worked in the round.
Cast on 40-40-44 (44-48) sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm / US 2or3 with 1 strand light yellow Baby Merino + 1 strand Kid-Silk. K 1 round and continue in rib, K2/P2, for 6-7-7 (8-8) cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/4"-2 3/4" (3 1/8"-3 1/8").
K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME dec 4 sts evenly on round = 36-36-40 (40-44) sts. Now keep the first 10-10-12 (12-12) sts on needle (= upper piece), and slip remaining 26-26-28 (28-32) sts on a stitch holder. Work 18-20-22 (26-28) rows GARTER ST – see above - back and forth on upper piece, then pick up 1 st in every other row each side of upper piece (= 9-10-11 (13-14) sts each side) and slip sts from stitch holder back on needle = 54-56-62 (66-72) sts.
Continue in GARTER ST in the round – see above. Work 8-10-12 (14-16) rounds, AT THE SAME TIME on second round (= K round) dec 2 sts mid front by K2 tog on the middle 4 st. Repeat the dec on the 6th round = 50-52-58 (62-68) sts. After 8-10-12 (14-16) rounds bind off all sts except the 10-10-12 (12-12) sts mid front.
Work 8-9-10 (12-15) cm / 3 1/8"-3½"-4" (4 3/4"-6") garter st back and forth on these sts for sole. Bind off and sew sole to the bootie, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.

EARS:
Worked back and forth on 2 double pointed needles.
Cast on 8 sts on needle size 3 mm / US 2or3 with 1 strand light yellow Baby Merino + 1 strand Kid-Silk.
Work 16 rows garter st back and forth on needle, on next row K2 tog across the row. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining 4 sts and tighten tog, fold the ear double in the knitting direction and use thread to sew the ear tog, edge to edge – i.e. garter st towards garter st. Make another ear in the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew ears to the top of foot, fold each ear double towards the side and sew 2 sts to keep it in place. Embroider a nose with light pink and eyes and whiskers with gray.
Crochet a border with light pink and crochet hook size 2.5 mm/C/2 along the top of bootie as follows: 1 sc in first st, * ch 4, 1 dc in the first ch (= 1 picot), skip 1 st, 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-*, and finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
