Very Easy Knit Baby Booties Knitting Pattern

    Hand-knit baby booties are a thoughtful gift, but if you’re a beginner knitter they can be tricky to make. This Easiest Baby Booties Ever Knitting Pattern is perfect for beginners! Most baby bootie knitting patterns require double-pointed needles and have heel shaping. These are knit flat and shaped through some well-placed decreases. The foldover shape in the front helps keep the booties on tiny feet. Best of all, this pair of baby booties only takes about 30 minutes to make!

I have included a video at the end of the post that shows you how to knit and assemble the booties.

How to finish the booties

Here is the finished piece. It looks like the letter “T”. The upper part will become the back and sides of the bootie. The thinner, bottom part will be the footbed

Take one side of the upper part of the “T” and place it on top of the footbed.

  1. These are just what I was looking for with a medium weight yarn. Thank you so very very much! Going to try to make them just a bit larger for a 6 month size for a wee bit larger baby. If you have any suggestions for this not so mathematical genius, it is always appreciated… But either way I am so grateful for every thing you have already done. If its ok with you, would like to make some for charity also for a local group that collects much needed baby items. These will be quick and oh so darling! Size for them is anything goes! Hope you are and baby are well. A great big Thank you again… Kate K.

  2. I've knitted the t piece, but am having a really hard time finishing this piece. Do you stack the bigger pieces next to each other and sew on top of the shorter (footbed)? And sew the right and left sides together? It seems simple but I've tried every combination I can think of. Can someone help explain the last sewing step? Or even post some pictures? Thanks!!

    1. Hi Laura- Fold one of the bigger pieces over on to the footbed. Sew down along the side. Then, fold the other side over and sew along the side. Finally, sew the toe seam. The toe seam will sew through 3 layers- the footbed, and the 2 sides. Hope this helps!

  3. I adore these booties!! I actually crocheted them using your pattern and they are the first booties that came out perfect for me!! Thank You for sharing your pattern!!

  4. Is the bottom of the T, the foot part, suppose to be as big as halv the top of the t? I am trying to follow the instructions while crocheting, but when finishing 20 rows, the foot sole was very long compared to the side that is folding over. Maybe I have 2 count different with crocheting when it comes 2 counting rows.

  5. I had to adjust the pattern to lighter wool and a 4 needle but they came out so great! I made a pink pair for friends who just had a baby girl, and I made some orange ones for my grandma's favorite doll. I love it!
    My patternis: 40 stitches for 12 rows, cast off 15 knit 10 cast off the other 15. Than knit the 10 stitches for 20 rows. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. I made these in candy corn colors for a friend at work last night. They are positively adorable! Thank you for posting this pattern and the larger-size instructions.

  7. First look, and I am totally enchanted! Saw the pic on The Spruce Craft which linked to the adult sizes, and now I am here! I would really love to give this a try. I hope to make knitting a therapeutic workout to alleviate my stiff fingers! These booties would make such terrific gifts, too! Thanks for this wonderful tutorial, bless your heart! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. These are just SO adorable โ™กโ™กโ™กโ™ก!!!
    I’m just wondering what ‘medium weight’ yarn would be in ply? I’ve searched for a conversion chart and came up with 10ply which seems a but thick to me for baby knits.
    Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe the number of stitches in a tension swatch? I do tend to knit loosely as well
    Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚
