This Easy Stay On Baby Booties Knitting Pattern is perfect for beginners!
Did you know that more babies are born in the summer than any other time of the year? Hand knit baby booties make such a great gift and they only take a small amount of yarn (and time!) to knit. This baby bootie knitting pattern is especially easy. There's no double point needles (yay!) or complicated heel shaping. These booties are knit flat and then seamed.
Babies love to kick off booties, so I kept that in mind with this design! I used a yarn with stretch and made a ribbed cuff to help these booties stay on little feet. This cotton yarn is lightweight and ideal for summer, plus it comes in a bunch of lovely colors.
