I have just finished a pair of Saartje’s bootees for a friend who wants them for a present for a friend of hers. I made them with DK yarn and larger needles as she wanted them for a 1 year old rather than a newborn. They are pretty stretchy so should be fine.
Pattern: Saartje’s Bootees
Yarn: RYC Cashsoft DK colour 527
Mods: none except for making them larger. I will be using some of that foam stuff on the bottom as the child has started walking and I don’t want to be responsible for him sliding all over the place and getting an injury!!
These were so quick to knit, you could do a pair in one sitting – if you weren’t at knit group chatting a lot!
