Five words, Baby Booties quick, easy and fun! YES!! All my favorite words … this had to be the perfect project for gifting a new born baby boy :)
These booties were fabulous! I knit them up in acouple of hours after watching the tutorial here.
I speak ziltch german, but was able to make out what was going on and what needed to be done … below is my interpretation of the knit portion of the pattern.
BYE-BYE BABY BOOTIE
Yarn | 1 Ball – Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (50gm) :: Col | Light Blue :: Dye Lot | 204
Needles | 3.25mm (US 3)
CO 30 sts
Row 1-34: K30
Row 35: BO 16 sts, P14
Row 36: K14
Row 37: P14
Row 38: K14
Row 39: P14
Row 40-41: Rep Rows 37 & 38
Row 42-45: Rep rows 36 & 39
For my new born booties: I repeated Rows 40 to 45, 6 times. Now just to seam.
The end result should be a piece of fabric that looks like an “L” shape. A portion of the fabric would be in garter stitch. The garment portion after the bound off section, will look like a combination of stocking sts and garter stitch. And that’s all the knitting! Now just to sew it up and embellish as you like. Watch the seaming bootie video (in german) to get an idea about you need to do to sew up the seams. ALL DONE!
Glossary | BO – Bind Off; CO – Cast Off; K – Knit; P – Purl; Rep – Repeat
