Free knitting patterns: baby booties
I made these shoes for my friend's baby shower gift based on the pictures of FO's and the progress shots on Ravelry, since I couldn't get the original pattern anywhere.
After finishing this project, I found that I made a little less numbers of ridges at the toe than the original, but I like it as is.
Here is how I made my version of Babystøvler;
- Yarn: DK / 8 ply weight yarn in 2 different colors
- Needle: US5/ 3.75mm or size to get the gauge
- Gauge: 6sts x 12rows (1”sq) in garter st
- Finished size: New born size / 3.5 inches measured at seam of the sole
With main color, CO21sts.
Work 26 rows in garter st.
1st decrease row: k1, ssk, k to the end of the row
2nd decrease row: k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.
Rep the two dec rows once more, and 1st dec row one more time. (16sts left)
1st increase row: k to last 2 sts, m1, k1.
2nd increase row: k1, m1, k to the end of the row
Rep the two inc rows once more, and 1st inc row one more time. (21sts left)
Work 25 rows in garter st.
Next row: BO 9sts, k to the end of the row.
With contrasting color, work 4 rows in st st.
With main color, work 4 rows in rev st st.
Rep these 8 rows 3 more times, and work the 4rows of st st in contrasting colors once more.
Sew the matching seams (same symbols in the picture) with a tapestry needle.
Sew along the ripple marked seam and pull it tight to form a round toe part.
I also sewed couple of sts at the beginning of the openings to make the ankle parts stand up better.
