Child Booties Without Seams (base up)

An example by YarnThrower

This example was motivated by Ruth’s “Ideal” Baby Booties, however my development technique is entirely distinctive, dispensing with the crease found along the back and focus base of numerous infant bootie designs. (In the wake of looking online **unsuccessfully** for a “consistent” infant bootie design, I chose to make sense of one on my own…)

This specific example starts at the base of the bootie and works up toward the sleeve. I have likewise distributed another form, which is Baby Booties Without Seams (top down).

This example uses a cast on which is regularly utilized as a part of toe-up sock designs. Two or three strategies are Judy’s Magic Cast-On and Deb’s Turkish Cast-On. [I find this sort of cast-on works exceptionally well utilizing a long roundabout needle (enchantment circle), proceeding with that needle until in any event the main column is knit.]

(This example is the property of YarnThrower and may not be duplicated aside from one duplicate for individual use. In the event that you print or disperse this example without YarnThrower’s composed authorization, you are taking.)

Needles required: Size 5 DPN’s, or long roundabout needle (40″ for enchantment circle), or both.

Note: I utilized a size 2 roundabout needle which is 40 creeps in length to cast on and work the first round (in light of the fact that that happens to be the biggest breadth *long* roundabout needle I have), and afterward changed to size 5 DPN’s for whatever is left of the bootie.

Yarn required: DK weight

Included August 20, 2009

Shortened forms (expect right gave knitter):

P#: Purl the given # of join

K#: Knit the given # of join

M1: Make 1 (a technique for expanding which is verging on imperceptible, done by embeddings tip of left needle underneath the little “bar” of yarn which keeps running between the needles, from front to back, shaping another fasten on the left needle, and after that sewing into the *back* of that new line)

SSK: Slip, slip, weave (Slip one line as though to sew, slip another join as though to sew, embed left needle into front of both fastens from left to right, wrap yarn around right needle and draw circle through both slipped lines, kind of sewing through the backs of the lines which have been slipped.)

P2tog: Purl two lines together

K2tog: Knit two lines together

YO: Yarn over (convey yarn from back of work to front of work – makes an opening if “sewing” all lines)

End of August 20, 2009 alters


Sole and sides of bootie:

Utilizing your favored system for a “toe-up” style cast-on, Cast-On 28 fastens. (There will be 14 lines on each of the two needles.)

Sew one round. (After this column, I changed over to my size 5 DPN’s.)

*P1, M1, P12, M1, P1* twice. (Note: To do a “M1” on a purl line, embed the left needle through the back of the little bar which reaches out between the main fasten on the left needle and the principal line on the right needle, successfully including a “join” to one side needle; then purl this “new” line.)

Sew one round.

*P2, M1, P12, M1, P2* twice.

*K1, M1, K16, M1, K1* twice.

*P3, M1, P14, M1, P3* twice.

*K1, M1, K20, M1, K1* twice.

*P4, M1, P16, M1, P4* twice. (52 fastens)

Sew eight rounds.

Top of bootie molding:

K29, SSK, turn.

Purl Short Row: Slip 1 as to purl, P6, P2tog, turn.

Sew Short Row: Slip 1 as to weave, K6, SSK, turn.

Rehash these two lines until the aggregate number of join is 36, finishing with the purl line, aside from don’t turn take a shot at the last purl line.

Slip next line from left needle to right needle, bring yarn to inverse side of work, and give back the slipped line to one side needle. (This “wraps” the following fasten.) Now turn work.

Proceeding in the round, weave to the end of the round, which is at the inside back of the bootie.


Weave one round, working the wrap alongside the line it wraps together as one.

Weave one round.

*K2tog, YO, K1* rehash until end of column. (This structures eyelets for embeddings a tie.)

Weave one round.

Work K2 P2 ribbing for 15 to 20 rounds. Bootie appeared in photograph has 15 rounds of ribbing.

Wrapping up:

Cut yarn.

Weave in closures.


As usual, I respect your remarks, concerns, proposals – and definitely, on the off chance that you discover a blunder or if something is confounding, I’d affection to think about it with the goal that I might enhance the example!
