Spunky, surprising, and super-NYC knitwear designer, Lindsay Degen, created the Vintage Taxi Booties for Purl Soho as an ode to glorious Big Apple moxie, as well as to the unfettered nature of babies. Simple intarsia checks make colorful splashes across these practical little booties, giving babies full freedom of expression! This pattern may embrace the spirit of our hometown, but knitting these gems doesn't require any big-city know-how. The Vintage Taxi Booties are knit in one top-down piece with double-yarn soles for super squish and I-cord laces for staying put. The fun colors and soft touch come from our Pocket Posy yarn, a kid-proof blend that also happen to be beautifully hand dyed and machine-washable, too!

NOTE: For the newborn–3 months and 6–9 months sizes, you can choose a 4-Skein Pocket Posy Bundle and be all set. You'll also find the colors we used for our samples there!
