Baby Booties: Eighteen Pretty Pairs to Knit

Caroline de Hugo. Murdoch (IPG, dist.), $22.95 paper with French flaps (64p) ISBN 978-1-74196-971-9
Is there anything more darling to knit than baby booties? In this efficient little volume, de Hugo details eighteen bootie patterns, including slippers, sandals, socks, Mary Janes, and more. For those who don’t want to venture far from the basic bootie, instructions for fun embellishments such as flower buds or velvet edging are included. For those looking to branch off, there are plenty of variations to choose from, including Norwegian colorwork socks, two versions of a simple cable number, even some Roman sandals. Stylish details such as buttons, poms-poms, and bowties are also part of the collection. A handful of clever sets, with matching accessories, are also featured, including a striped beanie and booties combo, a cashmere scarf and slipper set, and a ballet slipper and pouch duo. This collection is a lovely item for anyone who has a lot of tiny feet to knit for. (Dec.)
