Adorable baby ballet flats knit flat using elastic yarn. The shaping comes from simple decreases. Just 17 rows and an easy to knit strap make these a quick to knit gift that can be knit up in an evening- and a great use for leftover sock yarn!
PS- Maizy or Panda Cotton would be good yarns subs for the Patons Stretch Sock. You could use a non stretchy sock yarn if you can't find any with elastic in it, but the stretch helps keep the booties on tiny feet.
6 st/inch in garter stitch, unstretched
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
Newborn and up. Finished length is 2.5 inches, if you use a stretchy yarn the slippers will stretch to 3 inches long.
