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).

Free knitting pattern for quick and easy baby boots that require no sewing. These booties are knitted in rounds and there are round by round instructions with video turorial. #knittingpatternsquick #babyknits #freepattern

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 🙂

How to knit booties

You’ll need:

  • 50 g / 1,8 oz of cotton or half acrylic worsted weight yarn;
  • 5 double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 (if you know that you knit loosely, then I recommend you to take smaller needles in size 3 mm / US 3);
  • stitch markers (not obligatory, but might be helpful for marking the beginning of the round)



  • 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.
