These adorable and cozy elf-like baby booties are super easy to knit, as they are worked flat from the sole to the cuff -- they require only a small amount of seaming.

The booties are knit flat from the sole to the cuff with just one small seam at the back. Two variations are suggested, which are knit identically to the main bootie until indicated, but many more are possible! Let your creativity run wild!
