Little Man Work Boots
by Yarntivity, Casey Pilley
Kids love to emulate their loved ones around them. I remember wearing my mother’s heels and scarves thinking “Now FINALLY I’m an adult!” Why not start them off early :) We are their best tools to learn about the world and that feeling of equality was nothing short of awesome. I will never forget the high heel days of my childhood (lol) now you can begin those memories right when they are born and create some very awesome photo moments. I am so glad you are letting me be a part of that with you! These are pretty straight forward. There is only one “tricky” spot but once you look at it, you will totally get it and be done before you know it! Did I mention these aren’t just for the boys :) I have actually made a pair using girly colors and my goodness they are too cute for words! You can see a picture of them at the bottom of this pattern and also posted on Ravelry :) Now let’s get started with our very own Yarntivity :)

Yo – Yarn Over
FO – Fasten off/Cut yarn

  • You can adjust your sizing either with your hook or reducing/increasing stitches. There are four main sizes simply by changing your hook. Using an F Hook approx 4.75”/G Hook approx 5”/H Hook approx 6”/I Hook approx wider 6”. There are closer pictures at the end of this pattern for each size. Once you get the sole done, you can see if you need to upsize your hook for a larger size. Each sole on the right has the same number of ending sts (55)

  • As with most booties, we will work from the bottom up. I have labeled each section to give you a better idea of exactly what we are working on :) During the pattern, I do say to FO (fasten off). Trust me, fasten off :) I’m not a fan of fastening off during a project and will carry the yarn if I can as long as I can. For a neater looking bootie, you will want to fasten off.

PLEASE BE SURE TO USE PUFF PAINT OR SOME THING ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BOOTIES IF THE CHILD IS MOBILE IN ANY WAY!!
