Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern

Hello dear knitter friends! Today’s post is a beginner’s friendly project, an Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern.

It’s been way over a year ago that I published my Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern, and I planned to do the knitted version, but sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned.

For a while I even forgot about and went to create various other patterns. But as I was cleaning up my stash and saved projects (I’m moving soon and wanting to pack what I can in advance), I found the crochet version of these easy baby booties, which reminded me that I had yet to create the knitting pattern, using the same construction concept.

Finally, here is the Easy Peasy Knit Baby Booties!

I also created a video and photo tutorial to help you with this pattern, so if you need any help understanding it, you can find it here: Easy Peasy Knit Baby Booties Tutorial.

This top is made similar to this bootie. Only straight lines. If you can knit a rectangle you can knit this top. And just in case you need some visual help, this free pattern also has a free video tutorial to help you.

Another easy pattern that can be done with rectangles! So easy to make, and you only need a small amount of yarn to make these headbands.

If you are like me and save all your yarn left overs from big projects, this small little project will help you use up those tiny amounts of yarn and transform it into something pretty and useful.

Is also a great entry level product you can sell on etsy or at craft fairs. Because it barely uses some yarn and is so quick to make, you can sell them at a affordable price and make it your entry level product.

  2. Hi I really love your baby booties but I am a bit handicapped in using the computer for the instructions. How can I print them out so I may try knitting a pair for my future to arrive neice/nephew?? Thank you and regards.

  3. Is it SSK as in the stitches abteviations or skk as down below in the steps? One would be slip slip knit and the other slip knit knit.
