Bubble Booties have quirky bubble-stitch cuffs – knit them in two contrasting colours or all in one for a more subtle look. They have sweet ties around the ankles that help them stay snugly on busy baby feet. There are written directions and a picture tutorial for working the bubble stitch.
The booties are knitted in the round and are started like a toe up sock. Bubble Booties make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
