Closeknit is a family run business located in Langfang, China. That's right, we live in a city in China that many people in the U.S. have never even heard of. We came to Langfang in 2003 to work with China's special needs orphans. We knit blankets, shawls, soakers, and many other baby items. These days I design patterns, pick out yarns, and work with several local woman to make closeknit’s products. This is in all my spare time - which is not much after homeschooling/mothering 8 children. Our striped boots have been one of my personal favorites since we designed them several years ago. I finally got around to writing out the pattern so all of you could enjoy it as well. I love how easily they come together, and especially the lack of seaming!
