Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “These booties can be made in less than one hour each, and they do not involve any sewing! One of the techniques used to make these booties is known as double knitting which is a great way to knit in the round with just two needles. Don’t be surprised to see that you will be knitting these booties inside out once you get going.”

Finished Measurements: To fit up to infant’s shoe size US 2. Foot circumference about 5” (12.5 cm) around, foot length 3.5” (9 cm), and 2” (5 cm) from bottom of sole to top of ribbed cuff.

Yarn: Approximately 30 yards [27 meters] of yarn to give the correct gauge.
