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!
