Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern

Hello dear knitter friends! Today’s post is a beginner’s friendly project, an Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern.

It’s been way over a year ago that I published my Easy Knit Baby Booties Free Pattern, and I planned to do the knitted version, but sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned.

For a while I even forgot about and went to create various other patterns. But as I was cleaning up my stash and saved projects (I’m moving soon and wanting to pack what I can in advance), I found the crochet version of these easy baby booties, which reminded me that I had yet to create the knitting pattern, using the same construction concept.

Finally, here is the Easy Peasy Knit Baby Booties!

I also created a tutorial to help you with this pattern, so if you need any help understanding it, you can find it here: Easy Peasy Knit Baby Booties Tutorial.
