Babys first booties must be knitted!
The small booties are worked in garter stitch.
Starting from the top with a ribbing that is worked in
the round on DPNs, after which the shoe itself is knitted
back and forth on needles, it has a pleat and is finished
at the sole.
There are 2 shades in the kit, for 2 pairs of booties and
there are two versions to choose from for the shaft.
