little booties....

I loved using booties on my children when they were babies,
I had some gorgeous pairs that Andrew's mum made
and some from Aunties and others by ladies in the church.

I remember seeing these lovely ladies smile with joy and satisfaction
when they saw a pair of booties they had made
keeping my babies little feet warm.

Having had such a beautiful collection of booties
from the hands very experienced knitters and crocheters
I have always felt a little daunted by the thought of making them.

Until I spotted this pattern on Ravelry
it is a really simple 'first time booties' pattern.
I made this pair as per the pattern
but it could be easily modified with different edgings or cuffs.

The best thing about making this pattern is that it has given me the confidence
to attempt some of the more complex patterns for booties
I have been wanting to try.

The pattern can be found by clicking on the following links

Thank you to Susan L. Kraus for this great pattern :)

Have a delightful week!

Was going to ask you if knew of a bootie tutorial. Never made booties before(not even for my 3 babies). But have a new great nephew and am looking for a wee gift to make. Already unpicked 2 patterns that were for beginners...shall try this one. Thanks
