I do love it when my Mother-in-law stops over and we sit down and she just whips up one of her quick and easy crochet projects.
These are made in no time and a great idea for using up extra leftover yarn.
I love the simplicity of these booties, and know they are going to be a firm favorite, for newborns and preemies (just use a smaller hook)
The ribbed cuff makes these booties ideal for a newborn as they do not slip off little feet. But enough Stretch room in them to pop over the little all-in-one suits that have feet on them.
I can confirm these booties are the BEST and most favorite of a newborn mum, my daughter who recently gave birth to my Grandson LOVED these booties.
