I'm a knitter, mother, sister, and friend who likes to write cute and simple knitting patterns for babies.
Flowers can decorate the nature and babies can bring happiness to families. Knitting for babies is more enjoyable than other knitting projects. A mother, also a knitter has never end knitting for her little bundle of joy and this time I just made shoes-style booties for my lovely daughter.
This baby booties pattern is very easy to knit and just used garter stitches, which is knitting both right and wrong sides with knit stitches. They are also decorated with basic crochet chains shoes laces. It is so simple and doesn't take much time to knit and a perfect one for last minute gift. The stitches and style make the little booties cuddly to wear and cute. Enjoy your knit and make warm little feet of your cuties in a short time!
Great Knitting Book on Amazon!
