Straight Needle Baby Booties Knitting Pattern- fast & easy beginner pattern!
Hank knit baby booties make a great gift. There are tons of patterns available but most of them require double needles and complicated shaping. Not this knitting pattern! These baby booties are knit on single point needles in a simple garter and rib stitch.
(a note about this pattern- M1 means make 1 stitch. This increase is made by lifting the horizontal thread lying between
the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit through the back of the loop)
