Bernat Softee Baby Cuffed Boots

Baby’'s first boots! The Bernat Softee Baby Cuffed Boots aren'’t just the most adorable things you'’ve ever seen, they’'re also warm, comfortable, and stylish. The newest addition in your life will love them! And if they get dirty, you can even toss them in the washing machine! These baby booties also make for a great baby shower present.

Use a gauge of 20 sc and 22 rows (4") to crochet a pair of boots that will fit most 3 month olds or most 6 month to 12 month olds. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
