Popcorn Booties have cute little bobbles all around the cuff and a picot bind-off – they look like they’re covered in pieces of popcorn! There are detailed instructions for making perfect, centered, garter-stitch bobbles. 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). Popcorn Booties make perfect new baby, shower, or holiday gifts.
