Description

Aah crochet.. the craft of nanas everywhere.. What better way to celebrate this fulfilling activity than to make nana square booties!

These took a bit of fiddling around with, in trying to work out sizing, but turned out great in the end. The first pair were too large, so were a present for a boy. The second pair were too tiny, and were a present for a child. And the third pair were juuuuuuuust right! So I gave a pair to my mum. And then dutifully made a pair for myself ;)

These were very easy to make and are a very welcome addition worn with slippers or to bed.

    Total Nanageddon! Are these the ones where you make up 8 squares then sew them up together?

      Yep! They’re pretty simple to make. I found that my feet were happy with 9cm squares, the wool stretched to fit snugly. YOU could probably get away with 8cm ones, I reckon..

      Yeah, I think I’m gonna try making them out of granny squares, for even more granny-chique!

      Hey, are you on Ravelry? It’s like Burda, but for knitting/crochet, you can look up heaps of free patterns there.
