Baby Knits, Volume 1: Booties!

Here we go with Baby Knits, Volume 1: Baby Booties!

These little booties might be the quickest baby project I do!  And they’re super cute to boot(ie).

The original pattern can be found at Pruline.canalblog.com… which is not in English.  So thanks to other Ravelers, I’m sharing the pattern here, too!

For the pair above, I used what was left from a skein of Madeline Tosh Tart, which is a little bulkier than your typical worsted.

To cast on, I used a cable cast on, because it’s stretchy and since I was using scrap yarn, I didn’t have to guess how much yarn to use for a long tail cast on.  In case you’v never done a cable cast on – it’s really easy and I like it a lot – here’s a video!

So back to the pattern.

Super Simple Baby Booties

Worsted Weight Yarn + US 8 Needles

Cast on 26.

Knit 10 rows.

Bind off 10 stitches, and then finish the row.

Bind off 10 stitches, then knit 6 to finish the row.

Knit 6 for 21 rows.

Bind off.

Seam as shown in this graphic, then turn inside out to make the seams smoother.

That’s it!  These are a quick and easy project that makes for a super cute, teeny tiny pair of shoes!  Perfect for newborns who don’t actually need a pair of shoes. ;)
