We’ve all been missing out on gatherings and on gathering our loved ones close over the past two years. Gather Booties are a perfect way to give a virtual hug! The simple gather stitch on the cuff looks fantastic in solids, tonals, striping, and variegated yarn. The booties are knitted in the round and have an inside ribbed cuff that helps them stay snugly on busy baby feet. They make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
