Full tutorial for this top down, no sew bootie, click here
Introduction: The bootie is made from the cuff down and in the round, then onto a flat row for a bit of shaping, then back into the round to shape it all off. Once the basic bootie is made you will then add the Shy Butterfly pattern to the top of the made bootie.
If you look close enough you can see the butterflies hidden within the pattern, I think they are quite shy as they seem to vanish, then reappear where they choose to.
The pattern is quite easy, with lots of repeats.
I have made this pattern with a dc crown, so it works up quite quickly, a real time saver and a quick project for last minute gifts.
