These booties are great for using up left over yarn, and are pretty easy to make. They are knitted flat on two needles and then seamed along the sole and up the back of the bootie. Short rows mean no picking up stitches across the top of the foot (I always find picking up stitches frustrating so I’m very pleased about this!).

Feel free to use this pattern to make booties for whatever you like – friends, grandchildren, or to sell. I am on a mission to make and donate as much as possible to charity this year, so it would be awesome if you felt like making a pair or two for charity too!

Using different sized yarn and/or needles will make different sized booties – larger needles and/or thicker yarn will make larger booties and smaller needles and/or thinner yarn will make smaller booties – not a bad thing if you’re using up your stash by donating to charity as most charities prefer a range of sizes.

3.25 mm needles and light worsted weight/DK wool gives 8 cm booties (newborn to 3 months)

2.5 mm needles and 4 ply (close to sport or fingering) wool gives 7 cm booties (premmie to newborn)

Happy knitting!
