It’s time to shake those holiday bells and booties! These look complicated, but don’t worry – you’re only knitting with one colour at a time, each bootie is knit in one piece & the bells are attached as you go!

This is version 3 of the pattern:

  • Directions are given for knitting bobbles instead of attaching bells
  • Expanded & updated version with directions for 5 sizes (newborn to 18 months)
  • Options to knit the bootie flat or in the round & completely seamlessly
  • Choice of 4x4 or 4x2 stripes
  • Use 2 different colours for the top of the cuff & the trim or use the same colour
  • Each pattern version prints on just one page
  • Directions for adding bells or bobbles on separate pages
