Sweet, sweet watermelon – so good in the summer … or anytime really!

Watermelon Booties are knitted completely seamlessly in the round. The “seeds” are either knitted right in using stranded colourwork or added as beads. Make them with or without i-cord (or ribbon) ties – the inner ribbed cuff makes them fit snugly even without ties. These make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
