Stay-On Baby Booties

Knitting
March 2002
Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi) ?
6 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch in the round
US 3 - 3.25 mm
88 yards (80 m)
newborn to 3 months

Summary: Booties are knit in the round, with an I-cord tie to secure them on baby’s feet.

Materials:

  • one skein of Koigu Premium Merino will make 2 pairs of booties
  • 5 size US 3 / 3.25 mm double-pointed needles

Gauge: 6 to 6-1/2 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch in the round

From Knitting for Baby: Aside from looking perfectly adorable, these booties stay on baby’s feet better than any others we’ve found because of their unique shape and tie closure. We recommend that you wait to try this pattern until you are feeling very comfortable with double-pointed needles.
