Ruth's "Perfect" Baby Booties?

"Perfect" Baby Booties?

by Ruth Bennett

After looking for the "PERFECT" baby bootie pattern online, I found many that came close, but none seemed to be perfect for me...

So, I did what most knitters probably do & don't tell anyone: I took the best features from each pattern I found, tweaked the math to suit the way my brain works & wrote my own pattern.

I can only hope you will find this perfect for you.

Newborn to 3 months: 90 yards of sport or DK weight yarn on size 3 needles

3-6 months: 90 yards of worsted weight yarn on size 4 straight needles

Gauge: Worsted weight/stockinette/#4 needles: 5 sts/in

-Tapestry needles


-Two stitch markers (optional) #

Sole of Bootie:

Using Long Tail Cast On, CO 26 sts ( could use a provisional cast on & graft later...)

Row 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9: Sl 1 st knitwise, knit to end.

Row 2: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 1, m 1, k 11, (place marker)# m 1, k 1, m 1, k 1, m1, (place marker)#, k 11, m 1, k 1. (31 sts)

Row 4: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 2, m1, k 11, (move marker)# m 1, k 2, m 1, k 3, m 1, (move marker)#, k 11, m 1, k 2. (36sts)

Row 6: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 2, m1, k 11, (move marker) #, m 1, k 4, m1, k 4, m 1, (move marker) #, k 11, m 1, k 3. (41 sts)

Row 8: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 3, m1, k 11, (move marker)# m1, k 5, m 1, k6, m1, (move marker)#, k 11, m1 , k4. (46 sts)

Row 10: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 4, m 1, k 11, (move marker) #, m 1, k 7, m 1, k 7, m 1, (move marker) #, k 11, m 1, k 5. (51 sts)

Row 11: Sl 1 st knitwise, knit to end (remove markers)#.

Row 12, 14, 16, 18: Sl 1 st purlwise, purl to end of row.

Row 13, 15, 17: Sl 1 st knitwise, knit to end of row.

Shape Toe/Top of Foot: (Short Rows)

Row 19: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 28, ssk, turn.

Row 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34: Sl 1 st purlwise, p 7, p 2 tog, turn.

Row 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 7, ssk, turn.

Row 35: Sl 1 st knitwise, k 4, m 1, knit to end of the row. (36 sts)

Row 36: Sl 1 st purlwise, purl to end of the row.

Row 37: Sl 1 st knitwise, (YO, k 2 tog, k 1)* to last 2 sts, YO, k 2. (37 sts)

(This makes 12 eyelets for a "shoestring!")

Row 38: Sl 1 st purlwise, purl to end of the row.


Row 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55: Sl 1 st knitwise, (K2, p 2 rib)* to end of row.

Row 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56: Sl 1 st knitwise, p 1, (K 2, p2 rib)* to last 5 sts, K 2, P3.

BO in pattern. Leave a 26 " tail.

Turn to WS. Use tail to sew up selvedge edge. Turn RS out & shape toe with fingers.

(I suggest you use Backstitch for Stockinette rows & CO, mattress stitch for garter stitch rows...)

Thread a ribbon or 3 s I-cord through your eyelets to make your "shoelace."


-Instead of a ribbed cuff, feel free to tweak the math (to make an odd or even stitch count) and make a cuff with 18 rows of Garter Stitch, Seed Stitch, various other ribbings, simple cables, or whatever stitch pleases you.

-You can also change the look of the bootie using different materials as the "shoelace."

-You can also use bulky weight yarn, 100% wool yarn & size 10.5 needles...felt them down to size. Too cute!

I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
