Well, okay, you’ve got me. Five minutes might be a bit of an exaggeration. Even so, I’d say 10-15 minutes tops to make these sweet little booties that I designed to accompany some loom knit baby hats I’ve been making to donate to a hospital where a friend works.
Make them for a baby you love or a baby in need!
- small amounts of 1 each – baby yarn and worsted weight yarn. I used I Love This Yarn and Bernat Baby Jacquards. You can also use two stands of sport/medium weight yarn.
