NOTES:
1. Read through all instructions before beginning.
2. Be sure to use a stretchy cast on. I use the twisted German cast on.

Bravo! Thanks ever so much for something in the toddler range! My granddaughter is going to love these! Susan Ellis
 
Post a comment on how they fit her and her age. I bet they will fit even older.
 
not sure i understand. do you make two, and it fits the length of the whole leg?

just found out yesterday i'm a future aunt, so now I'm scoping out the baby patterns...

thanks,
jenny
 
Yes you make two.
 
:) thanks...

Yes, something to wear for a one year old that is no longer wearing booties . My 12 month old is just walking and climbing but doesn't like to wear pants,these will be perfect to keep his legs warm with a onesie and a sweater around the house. On cool mornings the floor always seems so cold. thiss knits up rather quickly.
 
Thank you for your pattern. I found it easier than some other ones. I made seven pairs. Some multicolored. My daughter is due in December and I can't wait to give them to her.
 
Congrats on you daughter's upcoming birth.
