Easy Knit Baby Booties

IMG_1032

I came across these 
baby booties a la ralvery and can’t get them off my needles fast enough!  So far I’ve made 4 pairs, some for gifts, some for my weest one, there is nothing cuter and more fun then to knit little teensly-weensy thingy’s for little smooshy babies— am I right or what? I did modify this pattern quite a bit, but the gist of it is the same, knit on straights using a decreasing method, I only changed the number of rows and stitch pattern.  They ended up super cute and of course look even cuter on my sweet little babies feeties!

Materials needed:
a pair of straights (although could be knitted easy on circulars as Ooo baby knits mama points out)

          I used a size 6 needles

Super soft yarn for baby feeties, I used a sock yarn in variegated cotton

 
Thread/extra yarn and needle

 
About a half an hour of you time, per baby bootie (or less if your double knitting these (note to self: get on that)

IMG_1087Size NB:

cast on 41 inches, work in garter stitch for 14 rows

(Start decreasing in stockenette stitch (knit one row, purl one row))

Row 15: knit 18, knit 2 together, knit 1, knit 2 together, knit across the row

Row 16: purl 17 , purl 2 together, purl 1, purl 2 together, purl across the row

Row 17: Knit 18, knit 2 together , knit 1, knit together, knit across the row

Row 18: Purl 17, purl 2 together, purl 1, purl 2 together, purl across the row

Row 19: Knit 18, knit 2 together, knit 1, knit together, knit across the row

Row 20: Purl 17, purl 2 together, purl 1, purl 2 together, purl across the row

Now you work on the cuff. 

Continue on for 14 more rows using the “seed stitch”.  The seed stitch is: knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl all across the row. 

Cast off and weave in ends.  Then sew up the sole and heel and embellish, attach an i-cord bow, or leave as is for a simple but sweet baby bootie.

Note: if you use yummy lambs wool, cashmere, baby alpaca or even silk— you have one spoiled baby!!!  So sweet and easy this is a great baby gift for a friend or your own squishy baby!!
