Let’s take a look at five adorable baby bootie projects and their accompanying patterns, featured right here on Craftsy by our members.

Keelan Chunky Strap Baby Shoes

Knit flat and seamed, these are super quick and adorable. Perfect for a last minute hospital gift for that very special baby. If you’d like to make a pair, check out the pattern here.

Baby Blue Bells

Next we have the whimsical Baby Shoes With Bluebells by Ginx Craft the pattern for which can be seen here. These tiny shoes are also knit flat with just one seam: quick, simple, and elegant. The embroidery is what makes one version of the shoe stand out from another. Why not try your hand at a few different flower types?

Baby Mock-a-Sock

The Baby Moc-a-Sock pattern is very intricate and will make any baby chic and stylish! These knit vintage baby shoes are worked in the round and are still marked for beginners.

Beyond cute in the takeout box, the Fortune Cookie Booties by Sheila Zachariae are sure to please both the mom and the baby. You could hand write your own fortunes to include like “Baby will sleep through the night” or use the fortune that comes with the pattern, “Good things come in small packages.”

Jayden Knitted Baby Boots

Last, but not least, we truly found the cutest baby boots in the world. The Jayden Knitted Baby Boots Mona SBi made are created from Julie Taylor’s pattern of the same name.

The shoes look so adorable! I would like to try making one, and maybe i can make it even more personalized by knitting my baby’s name too. I particularly love the blue one with straps.


I am currently attempting to knit the Jaden baby booties,size 12 months, and I do not understand how the blue marker is placed. When I count 16 rows I end up in the very center of the cuff instead of the back where I am suppose to be. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
