These boots are made for walking....
... or, more accurately, for the idea of walking. No-one this small would even know they had shoes on; all they'd be aware of would be the warm cosy feeling.
The pattern is from Uniform Studio Journal and really is very elegantly and simply put together. Mine are very tiny, for a newborn, because I used wool that was approximately DK weight, and therefore slightly thinner than the recommended wool. I also made the top part longer; it rolls over a bit further, to fit more snugly.
Now that I've done one pair I'll have to figure out a bigger size for certain babies (you know who you are...) who have grown too fast.
