Baby's Bootikin

In every age, knitters have made baby things, and decorative baby patterns were especially popular among well-to-do women in the 19th century who idealized home and family. These wavy-topped long booties are warm and stretchy because the toe, heel and sole of the foot are in garter stitch.
