Wave of Babies Booties Knitting Pattern
The Wave of Babies Booties are a quick, fun seamless project. The sole of the bootie is first worked back-and-forth in garter stitch. Then you pick up stitches for the foot and work in the round.
A ribbed cuff and an i-cord tie help make sure the booties will stay on baby’s feet.
