These were my favourite pattern suitable for boys in 50 Baby Booties, so I made them for Camilla. I like the look of an old-fashioned bootie with a bit of lace, but of course the lace couldn’t be too girly. I thought this herringbone lace was just perfect for a newborn baby boy 🙂
The yarn is Cleckheaton Cocoon which is sooooooo soft, but split a little if I wasn’t careful. I love the colour, which isn’t really true in these photos unfortunately.
The pattern is knit top down, with a ribbed ankle hidden under the turned down lace cuff. It would be very easy to amend this pattern to any sort of lace you like – I’m looking forward to having a look through my lace stitch dictionary for some ideas!
