These adorable booties are designed to be gender-neutral and practical (they will say on wriggly little feet!), and the worsted weight yarn they call for makes them a very quick knit. Perfect for those last minute baby shower gifts or for a quick project when you are in the mood for instant gratification :)
This design really makes beautiful yarn sing. Use solids for an elegant, understated look, or use semi-solids or variegated yarns for a more playful effect.
CONSTRUCTION: The booties’ soles are knit flat, then stitches are picked up and worked seamlessly in the round from the sole to the cuff. I-cord ties ensure that the booties will stay on the baby’s feet.
SKILLS REQUIRED: long-tail cast-on, knitting, purling, knitting in the round, decreasing, yarn over, working twisted stitches (link to video tutorial provided), binding off, making I-cords for ties (explanations provided)
Approx 60 (70, 80, 90, 100,120) yds or 55 (64, 73, 82, 91, 110) m of worsted weight yarn.
