These are lots of fun to make and come together quite quickly! The inner ribbed cuff helps them fit snugly on little feet. Designed for fingering weight yarn, started like a toe-up sock, then seamlessly knitted in the round, there are directions for 5 sizes (approx. newborn to 18 months). They have an inside ribbed cuff which makes them fit snugly. These fun little booties make perfect new baby, shower, or holiday gifts.
