A friend sent me a picture of tiny crocheted baby slippers with ties - I don't crochet but thought how cute they would be handknit. I love cables, so put in the cable detail on the top and made a couple of variations - one with an ankle strap and the other a raised top to resemble bootees, which boys would prefer.
20 stitches + 24 rows = 4" stocking stitch
I have been knitting for decades - aran sweater, designer garments, baby and toddler clothes. My recent foray into pattern designing has been so rewarding, and such fun - I am now often seeking inspiration all around me! I also have a one-year-old grand-daughter for whom I love making unique garments.
