Leo & Lea Sock Yarn Baby Booties

12 Aug

These booties are the perfect way to use teeny amounts of leftover sock yarn. The pattern offers two versions; unisex – Leo – and girl – Lea. The look is rather traditional but the knitting is totally seamless and in the round, there is no picking up of stitches. They will make a perfect baby shower gift and can even be knit at the last minute, an evening should be enough…

I’m working on a pair of matching mittens (in the two versions), stay tuned for these!
