These adorable booties are designed to be gender-neutral and practical (they will say on wriggly little feet!), and the worsted weight yarn they call for makes them a very quick knit. Perfect for those last minute baby shower gifts or for a quick project when you are in the mood for instant gratification :) This design really makes beautiful yarn sing. Use solids for an elegant, understated look, or use semi-solids or variegated yarns for a more playful effect.
The booties’ soles are knit flat, then stitches are picked up and worked seamlessly in the round from the sole to the cuff. I-cord ties ensure that the booties will stay on the baby’s feet.
SKILLS REQUIRED: long-tail cast-on, knitting, purling, knitting in the round, decreasing, yarn over, working twisted stitches (link to video tutorial provided), binding off, making I-cords for ties (explanations provided)
SIZES: NB (3mo, 6mo, 12mo, 18mo, 24mo) For corresponding sole length of up to 3.25 (3.75, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5) inches or 8.5 (9.5, 10, 11.5, 12.5, 14) cm. Please note: babies’ feet vary a lot in size, so it’s best to go by the child’s actual foot measurement when selecting the appropriate size.
