The Simeon baby shoe is knitted version of a baby trainer with a cute ribbed cuff and garter stitch side detail. They’re a perfect knit to whip up over a weekend. Part of my stay-on shoe range, baby can kick, crawl, pull and they’ll still have warm little toes! They are knit in the round with no seams and the finishing is minimal.

Technical Detail
The pattern has been technically edited. This pattern knits up a bit like a sock, 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. 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.

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 Simeon shoe comes in 5 sizes:

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

6-9 mths, UK-2 / US-3, length 12cm

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.
