Tiny felt booties for babies in both a lace-up or Mary-Jane style.
Design by Bev Galeskas
Sizes: Small, Medium and Large. To fit approximately 3 (6, 9) months. Pattern is written for size small with changes for medium and large in parentheses.
Yarn Requirements: Approximately 60 (75, 85) yards of light worsted weight wool that felts well. (Do not use a ‘super wash’ wool or any synthetics, cottons, etc. All yarns felt differently and it is always best to test felt a sample of your yarn to be sure you like the results.)
Needles: US size 10 (6 mm) straight needles.
Gauge: Approximately 15 sts = 4″ (10 cm) before felting.
Knitting must be loose to felt properly, but gauge need not be exact.
Finished size is controlled by the amount of felting.
