Baby Bootees: A Loom Knit Pattern

Bootees

I want to say a huge thank you for the donations that have been made to the MS society. You guys are wonderful! In just one weekend, we have gathered $135. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To show you my appreciations, here is another freebie pattern. These are just so cute--tiny little things and they work up so fast. They will make a great present to a Mommy and baby. Note, I have only used the yarn that I provided below and with gauge provided, if you substitute yarn, the size will vary. 

Again, thank you for your donations!

Materials:

Yarn: 50 yards of Bulky Weight yarn (Weight 6). Sample was knit using KnitPicks Swish in Honey Dew

Loom: Pink Long Loom by Provo Craft and 1 Loom Clip by Provo Craft

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, 2 size 8 double pointed needles

Size: 3-6mos

Gauge: 3.5sts and 4.5rows=1 in stockinette stitch


Abbreviations

k=knit (in knit stitch or flat stitch) not e-wrap

p=purl

Isela, Thank you so much for the help! I am going to start tonight as soon as the kids are in bed. I can't wait to try it, and I am so thankful for friendly, helpful and talented people like you! Thank you so so much! Kim :)

Well, if you were to get the same Knit Gauge that I got of 3.5sts per inch, and let's say the toddler's foot was about 6 inches in circumference. You will then need to use 6 (circumference of foot) x 3.5 (gauge)=21stitches. I would make it a nice even number and do 20stitches. Then I would measure the child's food from tip of big toe to the heel. Then I would subtract the heel length, about 1/2 inch from the measurement and 1/2 inch for the toe too. I would cast on 20stitches, knit the cuff, then knit the heel (using 10stitches), knit the length of the foot minus the inch from the heel and toe shaping, then I would knit the toe. Bind off with the Kitchener stitch and you are set.

Hope this helps to start you in the right direction!
