FO: Saartje’s Booties

How totally adorable is this? I think a newborn would be able to wear these for no more than a couple of weeks, they are so tiny. But why be reasonable and knit bigger ones? These are so quick and easy, you could knit one custom-sized pair every week.

Most of you already know this pattern, I’m sure, but if not, the added bonus is that it’s completely free and readily available here.

These are being promptly shipped to my friend’s brand new little girl, Léonie, who was born 3 weeks ago… I hope they will fit her!

Pattern: Saartje’s Booties (free pattern)

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran (Denim and Mauve), leftovers from various projects. Very little yarn was needed, a 3-4 yards maybe

Needles: US 2

Time to knit: a couple of hours while watching TV

Buttons: translucent white from Joann’s
