Use the Holdenboot Pattern to make a pair of 100% felted wool slippers by knitting in the round from the bottom up. The entire boot is knit and assembled before it is felted making the boot a single piece of fabric that is soft, warm and naturally water resistant. The adjustable strap ensures the slippers stay on baby's foot, and the felted button ensures a safe and comfortable fit for day or nighttime wearing.

The pattern includes complete instructions for four sizes of unisex boot slippers for infants and toddlers; Small (3.5" foot length, approximately 3 months); Medium (4" foot length, approximately 9 months); Large (5" foot length, approximately 18 months); X-Large (6" foot length approximately up to 3 years); and felting instructions. The pattern also includes the instructions for how to make the flower button covers and the adjustable headband.

The sizes cover a wide range of ages because feet sizes vary greatly. Please use inch measurements to ensure the best fit.
