Baby booties knitting tuorial (no sewing)This baby booties pattern is simple, quick and won’t require any sewing. I don’t know about you, but I hate sewing… a lot…. . Usually I avoid knitting projects with major sewing (I like sewing, but not knitting and sewing together).

Now, no sewing is a good side of the story. Here comes the bad side – you have to pick up stitches. I know, some people hate it even more then sewing. If this is your kryptonite then this pattern is not for you and I’m so sorry for that.

I didn’t make mine with ribbons etc. I prefer baby stuff without them. But no worries – you can make your baby boots in any way you like.

Pattern is for two sizes: 0 – 3 months old baby and 3 – 6 months old baby. Design is quite flexible and stretchy because children are different and grow quickly. Perfect for baby gift you know 🙂

How to knit booties

  • 50 g / 1,8 oz of DROPS Muskat
  • 5 double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6


  • k – knit;
  • sl st – slip stitch;
  • M1R – make 1 new stitch (right-leaning);
  • M1L – make 1 new stitch (left-leaning);
  • ssk – slip, slip, knit together;
  • k2tog – knit 2 stitches together
  • p – purl;
  • w&t – wrap and turn (don’t pick up wrapped stitch if not noted);
  • when you see this: Rnds 4 – 5 [4 – 7] then note that Rnds 4-5 would be rounds for 0 to 3 months old baby and Rnds 4-7 would be rounds for 3 to 6 months old baby.

    Is this the LAST row of this gorgeous bootie:

    Rnds 18 – 32: *k2, p2* to end of rnd;

    A ; (semi-colon at the end of this “last” row seems to me to be showing something to follow)

    I’m hoping to make a these (never actually made anything using dpns) for my friend’s first great-grandchild. Blue, of course.

    These are really cool!

      Yes, this is the last thing to do. I’m sorry, I should have stated this. I’m fixing this now. Thank you for asking 🙂

    I don’t understand Round 16. Is it actually worked as a row with a turn at the end and then back to the round at the end of 17?

    • 4. March 2016 at 19:48

      You need to make wrap & turn in the end of round 16

        I apologize for being so dense but . . . what I did last evening was

        1. Knit round 16, w&t at the end. I did the w&t on the first stitch on the next needle.
        2. Then I followed the pattern in the reverse direction on round (row) 17 back to the wrap.
        3. I worked the wrapped stitch and then continued on in the round – working on the inside until I got to the bind off.

        While this seemed a little awkward it did work. Is that the correct interpretation. After the fact, it occured to me to turn the bootie inside out to make it a little less awkward.

        It is an awfully cute bootie. Thank you.

          Sorry about my deleyed answer – I’m still recovering my illness. Yes, you got that right – I should have specified that in the pattern 🙂

            Feel better

    I’m a bit confused on the w & t. Which st am I wrapping, the k2tog or adding the st from the side needle then wrapping that one?
