Make a splash with this fun and easy pattern!

Making Waves are sweet little booties with a gorgeous (and easy!) all-over textured wave stitch pattern. Make these in your favourite ocean blue or blue-green, or make them in variegated leftovers from your stash – the wave stitch pattern is fabulous for breaking up even the craziest variegated yarn. They have an inside ribbed cuff that helps them stay snugly on busy baby feet. These fun little booties make perfect new baby, shower, or holiday gifts.
