The following description is from the magazine: Ducks, rabbits, pigs, sheep! Sue Flanders has designed a virtual barnyard for baby’s feet. These ingeniously shaped booties, which re about as cute as cute can be, are guaranteed to please parents and baby alike. All styles begin with the sole, which is worked back and forth in stockinette stitch. Then stitches are picked up around the perimeter of the sole, joined, and worked in the round upward to the ankle, with the face and (except for the pig) tail shaping worked in short rows along the way. Additional details are worked separately and sewn in place. Ribbing at the ankles helps to assure a snug fit so that booties will stay put on baby’s feet.
