Free Knit Baby Bootie Pattern

Baby Booties Free Knitting Pattern I found the cutest knit baby bootie pattern. I wanted something functional and cute. A friend of mine lost a newly knit bootie the first week and she was sick about it. But it didn't fit the baby and it fell off.

Well how can that be dealt with? Maybe something that actually fits.

Well I found this really adorable and functional baby bootie pattern at, of all places, the BBC. It is a free pattern and it is very straight forward and easy to understand

But if you are new to knitting there is also a great video someone made to assist their newbie friend with this very pattern.

If these aren't the cutest thing, I don't know what is. The color alone is so spring, but they are so fun too. The pattern is straight forward and doesn't seem to be something that would take forever. I think it is a great baby knitting pattern to add to your stash.

This is a new stitch to me. It looks like great fun and I love the look of it. The pattern is included. It's free so enjoy it. And as always this could be expanded into a knit baby blanket or a lap blanket or even a scarf or shawl. It's your imagination.

Free Knitting Pattern Rocky Point Beach Washcloth


A very interesting pattern. I've done something similar in crochet but not knit. And of course this is for a washcloth, but just keep going and expand into something larger, like a baby blanket or lap blanket. I think it would make a great baby knitting pattern
