These cute baby booties are suitable for either boys or girls and are both modern in style and practical at the same time. They are button fastening so will stay on through all those kicks and wriggles! They are knit flat and seamed using double knit yarn. The circular needle is used only to take advantage of its flexibility to knit round the curve of the cuff when you pick up stitches for the main part of the boot.
