Inspired by the iconic hunting shoe made right here in Maine, these knit duck booties will keep your little one’s toes warm and cozy for all your adventures to come. In three bootie-ful colors and four size options: the two baby sizes use Finch for the uppers, while the two toddler sizes use Chickadee.
Booties are knitted flat, from the bottom up, beginning at center of sole. Once sole and sides are worked, toe is shaped using short rows, then tongue is continued from the toe stitches. Remaining stiches are joined together at center back to make upper. Heel and sole are then sewn closed.
