Easy Knit Newborn Baby Booties

February 6, 2015
Free knitting pattern for easy baby booties

A few weeks ago I posted a knitting pattern for baby foldover booties. It got such a great response (thank you!!!) that I figured I’d post another. This pattern for Easy Knit Newborn Baby Booties is just as easy to make as the foldover booties- no complicated heel shaping or working with double point needles so it’s great for beginners!

    I plan to knit & send these to many areas of the world where they are needed. This will be part of a church project where we also knit other articles that are needed.

    Love the pattern. Made a pair in an hour. However, the # are off by a few. If you cast on 31 you cant start with knitting 12 + 2+ 3+ 3+ 2+ 12= 34

      Hey Whitney,

      There is an extra 3 stitches in your post – the pattern only has 3 knit stitches in-between the 2 knit together stitches instead of 6 (3+3)

    These are brilliant! A non knitter like me managed these with no difficulty. Thanks for sharing this pattern.

      If you only want them slightly larger I would suggest going up a needle size.
      Best,

    I am not an experienced knitter. I have been looking for a pattern that was not complicated to knit booties for my grand-daughter. She has had a foot amputated and this style of bootie, with the longer leg, are the best kind for keeping on her leg. Thank you for sharing. Can't wait to see how they turn out. If I want to make them bigger, I think I can increase this pattern without much difficulty.

    Would be ok if I put your pattern in our village newsletter as we are knitting baby booties for our local hospital to give to new mothers.

    Thank you so much for this! Every other beginner pattern was way too complex for my scarf-level skills 🙂 I have a successful bootie for my new niece!
