Baby’s first gumboots just like Dad’s Skellerup red bands

My daughter Keri wanted me to knit her baby boy a pair of booties that looked like gumboots.

I searched for a gumboot pattern and couldn’t find one so I finally adapted a double knit bootie pattern that looked a bit like a gumboot shape and tried to match the  New Zealand’s famous red band gumboots made by Skellerup.

I had a lot of fun taking these tiny little booties outside on a cold winter day to take photos.

I also had fun seeing my grandbaby boy wearing them at the beach.
