Felted EZ Bootees

Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Bootees from The Opinionated Knitter knit with wool roving held double on 6 mm needles. Big plump garter stitches tossed into the dryer to create felted booties. I love the result – but the fulling hides one of my favorite features of the booties, the way the garter stitch goes in different directions on the cuff. Must knit another pair.
