Garter Stitch Booties Knitting Pattern- fun & easy project for a baby essential!
Baby booties make a great gift and they’re a quick knitting project that’s ideal for scrap yarn! This Garter Stitch Booties Knitting Pattern is beginner-friendly. It’s knit on single point needles and entirely in knit stitch. It involves picking up stitches so knitting newbies might find this a bit challenging- if so, my knitting pattern for super-easy baby booties can be found near the bottom of this post.
Note- Instead of writing the pattern in a block like I normally do, I spread it out to include pictures of the work in progress. I think it makes the pattern easier to understand.
