NOTE: This pattern is KNIT IN THE ROUND, using Magic Loop (or DPNs could be substituted). If you prefer to KNIT FLAT/SEAM, please see my pattern store for my other version of this pattern.)
Baby clothes are so cute, but their darling booties are just too adorable! I wanted to design a bootie that would stay on baby's feet and be comfortable, besides being cute. So I decided on a one-piece, flat bottom, no center seam underfoot, and laces. As I worked, I kept changing my mind about the shoe sides, the instep, and the ankle design. So many ideas and so many possible combinations that would produce another style! So I thought I would just put 8 of them into one pattern here for you along with a Worksheet that would also allow you to choose and combine the features to produce even more style options. And all 8 of these patterns contain the directions for 4 sizes from 0-12mos. Knit in #3-Light Wt. or DK Wt. yarn, they use little yarn and work up quick. They make great shower gifts! Knit some up for some darling little feet!
