The baby Tundra pattern is the perfect mix between a slipper and a baby bootie. The cuff is taller than in most baby booties--designed to keep a little one's ankles and lower legs warm in the colder months. Knit in rustic worsted weight wool for warmth and coziness, this boot both stays on securely and can be removed easily with the help of creative design and toggles.
With a very simple, easy-to-pick-up cable pattern around the cuff, the Tundra is constructed from the sole up--working the sole flat, the shoe body in the round, the cable cuff flat and finally knitting both the shoe and the cuff together using the three needle bind off technique. This adds a beautiful twist between the shoe and the cuff. The Tundra is perfect for using up stash yarn and makes a unique gift for babies of all ages.
Pattern includes helpful photos and instructions including notes on all the techniques described.
This pattern is also available in toddler sizes:
6st/7rows = 1 inch in stockinette
|Girls, Boys, Infant/Baby|

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
