  • These quick to knit booties are lots of fun to work in one color or two—just the motivation you need when a gifting deadline is on the horizon. Constructed in the round from the bottom up on two circular needles with several top cuff options, short row shaping combined with decreases ensures a snug, seamless fit. The pattern includes three sizes (S/M/L) to knit in worsted weight yarn that stretch to fit a wide range of feet and may be customized by adjusting needles up or down. These warm slippers are just what’s needed after a long day of outdoor winter activity; they also work well as boot liners. Hug the feet you love best by knitting up a cozy pair.
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity. 
     
    Requires a little experience working short row shaping, working in the round on two circular needles, and working cables from charts.
