For many families Spring and Summer bring the addition of new little ones. Hand knit baby booties are a thoughtful gift, but if you're a newbie knitter, they can be difficult to make. This pattern is knit flat and then seamed when finished. There's no double point needles, or heel shaping- yay!!! To make these booties even cuter (and perfect for Summer!) I created a watermelon print using different colors of yarn. The "seeds" are stitched on after the bootie is completed using a yarn needle. This Baby Booties Knitting Pattern is as easy as it comes and they make a great gift. Happy Knitting!

How to assemble the Baby Booties Knitting Pattern:

Sew around the front of the bootie. Turn right side out. Crochet a 12 inch chain using the white yarn. Insert through the holes to make the ties.
