Quite awhile ago I created my own pattern for seamless baby booties to match a hat I had designed nearly a decade previous. It’s my goto personal pattern for baby gifts. I had the booties test-knit, the pattern tech edited, but never got to publishing it, thinking I wanted to do something more.
Last year I thought these booties would make great slippers. So I’ve been playing with yarns, needles, math to upsize the bootie pattern. This past weekend I’ve knit a mens’ small in Drops Eskimo wool, and a ladies medium in Premier Appalachia.
I like how they look, but there’s more work to be done before I’m ready to test knit, pattern write, etc…but these are quick gift knits!
