Premature Baby Booties
Premature Baby Booties

Favourite tiny baby booties

Shirley Cowlings has very kindly given us this pattern, and also some useful advice "Be careful when you knit booties to keep them very small... Watch your pattern size, or they could end up starting school in some!"

NOTE: Any unauthorized use, reproduction or sale of the knitting patterns is strictly prohibited. You may use this website and the knitting patterns for limited non-commercial, educational and personal use only. If you need clarification, email the team: stoke@bbc.co.uk
