The Noah baby shoe is part of my stay-on baby shoe collection. It’s an easy to knit shoe and a great design to play with colour and yarn. It starts off knitted on straight needles and transitions to knitting in the round halfway. They’re super cute and part of my stay-on shoe range. Your baby can kick, crawl, pull and they’ll still have warm little toes! There are no fiddly ties, they slip on easily then the structured, elasticated ankle band keeps them on, while still being flexible and comfy.

Technical Detail
The pattern has been technically edited. The first half of the pattern is knitted on straight needles, the second half is knitted in the round. You will practise provisional cast on, knitting in the round and Kitchener stitch. There are photo tutorials for all of the techniques plus photo stitch guides. The pattern has one small seam at the ankle. Blocking is advised to give a professional finish.

Suggested Needles
US 3/3.25mm double pointed needles OR 2 lots of 3.25mm 32in/80cm circular needles for magic loop method.

This pattern requires soft elastic for ankle casing.

Choosing Your Yarn
The pattern was designed using a Sport/5ply held double. When choosing your yarn look for a rough gauge of 25 stitches, 34 rows to 10cm. Ball weight examples would be 50g (1.75oz) to a length of 125m (137yds).

The Naoh shoe comes in 6 sizes:

Up to 6 lb, UK-000 / US-00, length 8.5cm
Birth to 6 wks, UK-00 / US-0, length 9cm
6 wks to 3 mths, UK-0 / US-1, length 10cm

The fit is aimed at the upper-end size and age. For example, a 3-6 month shoe size is worked out on lengths and proportions of a standard 6 month foot.
