Daisy Chain Booties
Delicate lacy daisies edge the top of the bootie cuffs and you have the option to knit an extra daisy in the center of the instep. Knit them all in one colour, or use a contrast colour to highlight the daisies.
The booties are knitted in the round and are started like a toe up sock. Daisy Chain Booties make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
