Minnie's Baby Booties - English
Minnie's Baby Booties are worked in smock and rib pattern. They are worked in the round and the only finishing required is to weave in the two ends.
The booties run large but the rib makes them flexible so they will fit for a long time. They are supposed to be worn on top of sock or leggings in the stroller or car seat when it is chilly. They will not fit closely to a naked baby foot like a regular sock.
