I made these fun, striped booties to match my Dreaming of Pinwheels blanket. They’re made with the same Anne Geddes Baby yarn by Red Heart. I love the colors, and the acrylic / nylon blend means it’s strong and machine washable too. This pattern has instructions for sizes 0-6 months and 6-12 months

    • That’s because I wrote it to start with foundation single crochet (fsc). There’s a tutorial in the recommended resources, or you can just star with 8 chains and work 7 sc instead.
