What about cute little striped Bumblebee booties for busy little baby feet?

These are knitted flat with a simple seam and the wings are knitted right in to minimize finishing. Work them in fingering weight or sport weight yarn for four different sizes. Clever positioning of the contrast colour yarn means fewer ends to weave in!

Bumblebee Booties make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
