Step into the fairy ring with these magical Mushroom Booties!
Babies will look so cute kicking their feet in these whimsical booties based on Amanita muscaria, the red-capped, white-spotted mushroom often depicted in fairy tales. Designed for fingering weight yarn, started like a toe-up sock, then seamlessly knitted in the round, there are directions for 5 sizes (newborn to 18 months). They have an inside ribbed cuff which makes them fit snugly. These sweet little booties make perfect new baby or holiday gifts.
You'll need 14-24g of the main colour and 7-12g of the contrast colour (the mushroom cap) and US 1 (2.25mm) needles.
