Just like the name says, these Knot Hard To Do Baby Booties are NOT hard to do, and they can be tied on with KNOTS!

This design is worked in joined rounds and includes 4 different size options. It’s a great design option because:

  • Each pair works up quickly and easily!
  • Booties are great gifts for baby showers!
  • You can use lots of different yarn types in the weight 4 category to work these up!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: yarn function and substitution, joined rounds, color changes, increasing, decreasing, gauge & size, finishing techniques & more!
