How to Knit BABY BOOTIES Shoes

These easy Knitted Baby Booties are a great project for beginners, complete with free pattern and video tutorial! I’ve been getting lots of requests for more knitted baby clothes and especially baby booties. I love the folded fortune cookie-like design. Simply knit small swatches in the garter stitch, then quickly assemble the pieces into cute little moccasin baby shoes.

Knitted Baby Booties make 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 give it a try. 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.
