Pattern Notes

I have labeled this pattern as an intermediate design because of the post stitches used to decrease and shape the toe of booty. I highly recommend you view the video tutorial for this pattern, at least for the foot portion of the pattern.

This pattern is currently only available in the newborn size. If you wish to make a larger pair of booties, I recommend you use a worsted weight yarn and a size 5 mm hook. By manipulating the gauge in this way, your finished booty should fit 9-12 mos.
