First you will need to gather your supplies

What you will need

  • 10g of 3ply baby yarn ( though I used 4ply as it was the only one I could find in the color I wanted, its fine to use 4pyl the bootee will just be slightly bigger)
  • 80 cm of 7mm wide ribbon
  • 3.25 mm Knitting Needles which makes 7.5cm bootee length( if you want if smaller use 3mm with makes 7cm or if you wish it bigger use 3.75mm to make 8.25cm )

Work 5 rows in ( K1, P1 ) rib.

Work the 4 pattern rows twice more.

Knit other bootee to match

Make up:

Finish of ends and sew up seams.

Thread ribbon through holes around ankle.

 

And here’s the finished result, I chose a lemon colour as it is Unisex but you could choose any colour.
