In November I had two friends who had baby’s due, so I pulled out the book 50 Baby Bootees to Knit. This book has a number of booties for a variety of ranges of age. It’s awesome and they are fairly easy to jump in and knit without a lot of previous knitting knowledge.
The first pair of booties were the Stripy Bootees. They were made with Berroco Comfort on size 3 needles. Comfort was a little higher than the recommended gauge so I made the 3-6 month size to hopefully allow the baby to wear it for awhile. Since Comfort is closer to a worsted weight yarn, knitting them up tighter kept them closer to a baby size.
The second pair I knit was also made out of Berroco Comfort. They were the Slip-Ons. They were knit on size 5 needles to get a better size for the baby. This pattern is knit for only babys 0 – 3 months old. They only took about 2 hours to knit and were the perfect quick knit for a baby who was born a little early!
I promise more content soon! I got behind on blog entries and need to catch up! I’ve been so wrapped up in Christmas knitting I haven’t had a chance!
