For some time now i have been trying out bootie patterns for little O, and hadn't found one which i could make up in the right size, Her feet seem to be long for her age but are on the skinny side, so most i have made came up too small, then when i try to swap yarn /hook/needles they come up too big! This is the latest pattern i have tried -
This pair looked at good bet, so we tried them on for a while - oops, she'd kicked them off within about 5 minutes, so i tried the same pattern again but in an aran weight wool -

and hooray - these little beauties seem to be staying on!

aside from the fact they look at little like clown shoes, they are rather cute! (I'm hoping the weather will warm up before she grows out of these)


  1. Hi Kelly,
    I have been looking at some more of your posts. So much gorgeous knitting!! It's been a real treat visiting. I have been looking out for some baby/toddler knitting inpiration. You have got me thinking and dreaming and scheming again. I think I have more of an idea now about what I would like to do.
    The booties are Adorable!!
    hugs xx
