Knit them all in one colour – or do the tail in a different colour if you want! You’ll have a minimum of ends to weave in due to the clever construction. The inner ribbed cuff helps them fit snugly on little feet. There are directions for 5 sizes (newborn to 18 months) and these make perfect new baby, shower, birthday, or holiday gifts.
The textured stitch pattern on the booties is great for breaking up variegated yarns, so have some fun with that if you want to!
