OOOOOO ARRRRRRRRRRGH! These pirate booties will keep baby afloat in the high seas and not afraid of walking the plank!

Made with 100% cotton, these booties have a lightweight yet durable feel and will make any outfit look awesome. They are easy to make and will take you 1-2 hours to knit.

This baby slippers pattern has full instructions on how to knit the slippers. They are knit flat on straight needles.

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.

Making up

Weave in all ends along the work, not up to the side, as this will cause a bumpy edge.

Lay work out and gently steam.

Join the heel and the foot with a flat seam.

Roll over the top edge and stitch down the back seam with a single stitch to keep the roll edge in position.
