Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “For this project you’ll need about 40 yards of bulky-weight angora-blend wool, ideally handspun, which doesn’t shed as easily as commercial yarn. The beauty of these booties is their simplicity - they are basically a rectangle, making them quick and easy to finish. The pretty ribbons, soft against the baby’s skin, tie around the ankles to keep them securely in place.”
