“I did not come up with the original design for these bootees. A woman inherited them from her Mother and although she knows they are vintage there was no pattern with them.
She sent me some pictures so that I could try to decipher the pattern. According to her my bootee is not quite the same but it is the closest I am able to do without having the actual bootee in my hands to replicate. Apart from the trim and ties they are worked all in one piece (the woman who owns the original bootees thinks they may have been seamed).
Worked in 3 ply baby yarn with a 2.5mm hook the sole is 9cm long”
