These kinds of boots have seen many baby feet. I like to knit them for pretty much anyone that is having a baby, as they are very easy to make. The choices of colour combinations are also quite inspiring, as no two every look the same.
I am usually able to knit one pair in one night in front of the TV. Strangely enough I find I knit quicker when I’m not actually looking at my knitting, apart from when I absolutely have to, what’s with that?
When I first started knitting these booties about 12 or 13 years ago, the pattern came from a German magazine that had many patterns of baby clothes. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name, as I have used it so much that the front cover of the magazine has disappeared.
I have over the years made some minor changes to the pattern and have personalised it a little bit. Overall it is an easy knit that makes a very nice present!
