GUIDELINES FOR KNIT/CROCHET NEWBORN BOOTIES


Materials: Use sport weight, fingering yarn or baby yarn ONLY. Since hats will be in contact with baby's skin, worsted weight or wool yarn is too "rough" for their delicate skin.

Size: The sole of the bootie should be at least 3" long. The circumference around the ankle should be about 3" around and at least 1 1/2" tall to help them stay on better.

Please tie your booties together or put one inside the other. This will prevent the booties from getting separated before they are packed in a delivery. Don't use safety pins to fasten them together.

Finished booties need to be washed before being turned in. Do not use fabric softener in the dryer when drying them. Check for loose yarn that needs to be woven in.
