Flat Knit Baby Free Booties Knitting Pattern- these basic booties are beginner-friendly and they make a great gift!
I love knitting baby booties but I don’t love making them on double point needles. For me, double-point needles and tiny projects usually lead to dropped stitches! This easy baby booties knitting pattern is knit entirely on straight needles (yay!) They’re very easy to knit and they would make thoughtful gifts. This pattern is ideal for beginner knitters.
The design is pretty basic- it’s a mix of garter and stockinette stitches. The ribbed band helps these stay on baby’s feet.
