More Baby Janes

by Kate Preston

I can’t resist.  I love these Baby Janes for their instant, adorable satisfaction.
This pair, my favorite to-date, are knitted in Manos del Uruguay’s silk and merino wool blend, kettle dyed in color #3113.

At about three hours, they are my go-to knitted gift for a friend’s baby shower or that special new baby down the block.

The pattern can be found in one of my favorite knitting books – Vintage Knits for Modern Babies by Hadley Fierlinger.  There are some intermediate techniques necessary to knit these booties, so it keeps things interesting.  Ms. Fierlinger has a similar pattern available for FREE download on her blog.  You can grab it here.

Also adorable in Rowan’s Pure Wool DK.  These were knitted with love for baby Emma B.
