How to Knit Baby Booties. Hi, Guys, I’m Kristen and Welcome to Studio
Knit! It’s Knitting Lesson Monday, and today we
are knitting up these really cleverly designed and easy to knit Baby Booties! I’ve been
getting lots of requests from you guys for baby clothes and especially baby booties.
I love the fortune cookie-like design and they are really easy to knit up for beginning
knitters. The Materials we will use are worsted or aran
weight yarn in one or two colors, your color choice is TOTALLY OPTIONAL. 2 Knitting Needles–
I’m using size 7US. Scissors, and a Tapestry Needle. Links to my Lessons on all the Knitting Techniques
we are going to use are in the description below. So, I first want to show you the construction.
We are going to make one smaller strip here and then one longer strip in the blue, in
my example. So, we are going to begin with the smaller strip here by casting on six stitches.
With those six stitches, we are going to knit twenty four rows. So, it’s pretty quick. Go
ahead and weave in and cut off your ends. And since we’re making two shoes, we are going
to be making two of these strips. Next, I’m using the color blue, and we’re going to cast
on twenty six stitches. Now for this knitting strip, we are going to be knitting ten rows,
and then bind off, weave in your ends, cut them off and we are ready to construct our
BABY BOOTIES. Now, this square, where the two strips overlap, we are simply going to
seam it together all the way around and I am choosing to do it in my blue color. Now,
we are going to connect these two outside corners, these two inside corners, and these
two edges together. So, with our tapestry needle, let’s go ahead and begin to tack the
corners together. Bring them in. And now we’re going to do the same with the other strip
that top corner of the blue connects to the left corner of the tan, and it comes down
and folds over the first strip. And then you’ll see on the side here I’m going to hold them
taught and then simply stitch them together. Oh, and if you LIKE these BABY BOOTIES, please

the folds to be opposite from each other. So, we are going to first do the right side
this time, and then fold over the left. SO ADORABLE! And I love how these make really
great gifts. Even if you don’t have any babies to give these to as gifts, but you think it
would be a really fun knitting project, I definitely encourage you to do it. It’s a
really quick knit and a super cute gift to have on hand. And trust me, these are a HUGE
HIT at baby showers. Oh, making these BABY BOOTIES reminded me of this really cool stop-animation
movie my Dad made with my own BABY BOOTIES. So groovy! Thank You so much for watching Studio Knit.
