Re: How Do you make Baby Booties?
- You can also do a simple bootie by casting on 12 to 14 pegs using the
blue kk loom and knitting in the flat for 2 to 3 inches, bring up for
cuff, then continue to knit for another few inches for the foot.
Remove by gathering just like a hat top, this is the toe portion.
Leave a long strand of yarn for sewing the top portion of the bottie.
Now sew the two sides (from the inside) up to the bottom of the
cuff. If you look at the cuff portion you will see that either side
of the cuff has an opening. Take a ribbon, crocheted chaing or I-
cord and run it though this opening for a tie. Or you can just
attach a tie to either side of the cuff.
These make cute little booties for babies. You can vary the length
for the baby size also depending on how far up the leg you want the
bootie to go.
(this is how I learned from Carrie on rakeknitting) In the ones I
have done I used two strands of a baby sports weight yarn and they
came out so soft and cute.
