This pattern is great for beginners as it uses basic knitting stitches – knit and purl, while also introducing you to increasing and decreasing to shape.

I have included a list of knitting abbreviations at the end of the post and instructions on how to make up the finished product.

Baby Booties Knitting Pattern

The baby booties pattern is easy to follow, making the booties flat on straight needles and decreasing to shape.

The stripes are easy to knit, carrying the yarn for each colour until it is no longer needed.

You could make these slippers in a variety of colours, from neutrals, pastels to brights.

The pattern is great for any beginners who are learning how to knit, as it is a quick project and great for stash busting – any yarns you have leftover from other projects can be used up for baby booties!

I have made booties and socks using cotton and wool/acrylic blends. The cotton yarns always work up well and are easy to take care of.
