Project 1 - Baby Bootees
Pattern Description from Heirloom Knitting: “These traditional baby bootees are made with the Bead Faggot Pattern on the leg. Field of Flowers, or any other fine pattern could be used instead; or the bootees could be made in stocking stitch, moss stitch or garter stitch throughout. this useful bootee pattern is one of the simplest I have come across. To make, you start by casting on the top and finish with the bottom of the foot.”
