These adorable booties are designed to be gender-neutral and practical (they will say on wriggly little feet!), and the worsted weight yarn they call for makes them a very quick knit.
Perfect for those last minute baby shower gifts or for a quick project when you are in the mood for instant gratification :)

This design really makes beautiful yarn sing. Use solids for an elegant, understated look, or use semi-solids or variegated yarns for a more playful effect.

CONSTRUCTION:
The booties’ soles are knit flat, then stitches are picked up and worked seamlessly in the round from the sole to the cuff.
I-cord ties ensure that the booties will stay on the baby’s feet.
