  • Description from Knitty.com: Always fresh from the spring garden, these adorable booties will brighten a baby girl’s toes any time of year. They’re also sure to garner lots of oohs and ahs at the next baby shower. Featuring a close fitting foot and I-Cord closure that’s easy for grown-ups to tie and untie, these booties will stay on better than most. Despite the fine gauge, these little flowers knit up quickly -- knit a pair in 2-3 evenings or a whole bouquet in a week. And the best feature is the no-sew finishing -- just block them flat and weave the I-Cord tie through the petals!
