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 ๐Ÿ™‚
