This bootie is made in two parts – one for the foot (sole) and then we have the section that goes round the baby’s ankle. This bootie is started at the toe and then worked in rounds till you reach the base (heel) of foot. Then just around ankle, we fasten off and make a cylinder-like section that we will attach on to the ankle/heel bit.
Size : L of sole : 4.5”
