Churchmouse - Stay On Baby Booties
Stay-On Baby Booties (in 3 gauges) - They'll stay on even the most lively little kicker.
Karen Alfke adapted these cuties from a Swedish bootie pattern her mother used when the kids were tiny. The ribbed cuff and tie help them stay on even the most active of little feet. The pattern is written for your choice of three gauges, so you can use just about any yarn you like!
