Short Description: Baby Steps by Frogginette. Got small remnants of bulky yarn that you don’t know what to do with? Need an instant-gratification project? A last-minute baby shower present? Each newborn-size pair takes about an hour (ok, maybe a tiny bit more) to whip up! These adorable and cozy elf-like baby booties are super easy to knit, as they are worked flat from the sole to the cuff -- they require only a small amount of seaming. In addition to the main design (meant to be a companion to the Red Riding Coat) instructions for the 2 simple variations shown in the pictures are also included. This is a great template to come up with your own unique version!
