Denim Cuff 6cm Booties

Named purely because this lovely yarn reminded me of denim. Its called Birds Nest by Moda Vera and is 100% cotton. Beautiful yarn! See a pattern here? Mostly I use Moda Vera from Spotlight (Its all I have locally) They ought to be supplying me yarn for all this plugging lol!

Anyhow, This pattern makes little booties that are about 6cm in length, so they would fit hrm 28-30 weeks gestation. The image isn't too grand, its late here but I really wanted to get this one up and listed. Its super easy, takes about 10 minutes to make one bootie and its all done in one piece, so nothing to add or join!

You will need
3.00mm hook
needle for sewing in ends
Moda Vera Birds Nest, or a similar cotton 4ply baby yarn (fingering for our US friends)
Pattern is written in US terms.
