I have a passion for designing knitwear for babies and children, I then write up the designs as patterns to share with other knitters. Inspiration comes from the countryside near where I live and my own children. However, the knitwear design has to come second to my part time job, the household chores and one of my high maintenance cats, Basil!
Keep up to date with my pattern design and Basil's exploits at http://sleakeknits.wordpress.com/
This is a detailed written knitting pattern in pdf format for baby teddy bear themed booties. The pattern includes photos and row by row written instructions.
The booties are knit using mainly garter stitch with a stocking stitch roll edge to the cuff. The bear's nose is added using duplicate stitch or by sewing on a button, the bead eyes are added as you knit and the ears are knit separately and sewn on upon completion. The booties are knit flat using two needles with one seam at the back and sole.
These cute accessories would look great on your little bear!
100% wool DK or a wool/acrylic mix DK. I used Patons Diploma Gold DK in brown and biege shades, however you could use any alternative yarn that knits to the same tension/gauge.
24 stitches and 44 rows to 4in/10cm using US 3/3.25mm needles over garter stitch.
