New Pattern: Baby Booties
There seems to be a rash of babies at the moment - N's best friend George and his wife Heather recently welcomed baby Sophie to the world. N's cousin is expecting any minute. Some good friends recently had twins (welcome Connor and Liam!), and another very good friend is due in August.
This is too much for a knitter - there just isn't time for so many blankets in quick succession. Can I suggest booties?
Newborn to 3 months size. Using less than one ball of DK weight cotton, they are knitted flat and sewn up. There's a plain version with a ribbed cuff and one a little fancier. This style uses a crochet chain tie to ensure they stay on kicky little feet.
Suitable for knitters with a little experience, but not taxing. And certainly quick for emergency baby gifts!
