These adorable baby bootees will have your little angel walking on cloud nine! The bootees feature an all-over cloud stitch pattern that creates an interesting yet delicate texture reminiscent of cumulus clouds. The small stitch pattern repeat is easy to follow while shaping, and may be worked from memory after a few rows. A quick knit in Patons Beehive Baby Sport, these machine washable and dryable bootees also make a great baby shower present.
