Inspired by the famous yellow Checker Cabs of American cities, Taxi! Booties combine cables and intriguing construction techniques.
These are knit both in the round and flat – the cabled cuff “tire” is knit sideways and joined on to the snug-fitting inner cuff as you work. There are five sizes to fit newborns to toddlers. Taxi! Booties make perfect birthday, shower, and holiday gifts.
