These were made for the “new” (born December) daughter of our worship director. He wears Converse shoes all the time, so Dave thought it would be fun that we give him a pair of “Converse” shoes for his daughter.
The pattern was a little more difficult to make because the creator is German, so the original is in German and I was working from an English translation. The photos in the pattern also were taken in poor lighting, so it didn’t always show what I needed to see. There were a few others that made these booties, and between trial and error, and notes from other Ravelers, I finally figured out what would work.
