Free Baby Bootie Knitting Pattern-What Could Be Better?
I have been looking everywhere for a sweet free baby bootie knitting pattern. I wanted it to be a little lacy but well constructed. I didn’t want it to fall off the baby’s foot with every movement.
I Wanted A Pattern That Would Stay On The Baby’s Foot
I don’t know about you but I think this is a tall order. I have knit dozens of little knit socks for little ones, some purchased and some were free, and although they are cute they are just not functional.
What got me thinking about this, was a friend that had the cutest booties knit for her by someone else and she lost one of them in the first week. She was sick about it. She said it didn’t really fit the baby but was so cute and she didn’t want to offend her friend that knit it.
Why Not Knit Something That Will Actually Stay On?
I can understand that but why not knit something that will stay put. Well of all places, I found this pattern on the BBC. You’ve got to admit this is one well constructed free knit baby bootie pattern.
I think they are adorable. Just click the image and go over to the BBC and check out this free baby bootie knitting pattern, and see if you don’t agree. It is not complicated at all. The key here is the right size needles. The pattern suggests 3.5mm needles. Remember this is a British site, so look at your needle size carefully. A size 2 or 3 American knitting needle would work great.
