The baby slippers pattern has full instructions on how to knit the slippers and the ears. I have included a list of abbreviations and instructions on how to make up the finished product. The pattern is meant for babies aged between 10/12 months.

The pattern is easy and will not take you very long to make these wonderful slippers. A basic knowledge of knitting is all that is required for you to get started.

Size – depending on the type of yarn you use, these booties should fit a 6-9 month old.

Any double knit yarn in your colour choice.

You will need 1 x main colour (A) brown
