Baby Booties - Retro Look - Knitting Pattern
A pair of warm winter booties for tiny boys.
Knit them in a soft baby blue merino wool for a special present for a new baby boy. Or try them in pink!
Featuring rib stitch and a fold down cuff they are surprisingly quick and easy to knit. The long fold down cuff ensures they will keep legs warm and stay on well.
This is a flat design, so it is well suited to beginners as it does not require you to knit in the round, although an experienced knitter can easily adapt the pattern to DPNs .
You will need a pair of knitting needles in size 3 US or 3.25mm and 50 g of baby wool.
