Baby booties knitting tuorial (no sewing)This baby booties pattern is simple, quick and won’t require any sewing (except hiding in yarn ends). 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 than 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.

 

The pattern is for two sizes: 0 – 3 months old baby and 3 – 6 months old baby. The design is quite flexible and stretchy because children are different and grow quickly. Perfect for a baby gift you know ๐Ÿ™‚


How to knit booties


Youโ€™ll need:

  • 50 g / 1,8 oz of DROPS Muskat
  • 5 double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 (if you know that you knit loosly, then I recommend you to take smaller needles in size 3 mm / US 3)

Abbreviations:

  • k โ€“ knit;
  • sl st โ€“ slip stitch;
  • M1R โ€“ make 1 new stitch (right-leaning);
  • M1L โ€“ make 1 new stitch (left-leaning);
  • ssk โ€“ slip, slip, knit together;
  • k2tog โ€“ knit 2 stitches together
  • p โ€“ purl;
  • w&t โ€“ wrap and turn (donโ€™t pick up wrapped stitch if not noted);
  • when you see this: Rnds 4 โ€“ 5 [4 โ€“ 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.
