Hello all! I desperately looking for a tried and true knitting pattern for baby booties with tie on laces, in a basic stockinette style.
I wouldn’t say I’m a super knitter, but I’ve made a number of sweaters including Irish fisherman’s sweater and a Dale of Norway, and have designed and made multicolor sweaters and baby blankets, including one that was two sided, so I generally can read and follow a pattern, knit with even stitches, etc. OTOH I am older and my eyes aren’t what they used to be, so size zero and fingering proved to be a bit on the tough side (but I’m going to the eye doctor on Monday lol)
Over the last week I have made one of several different baby bootie patterns but have found all of them to have problems. One was lopsided, one was miniscule (fingering and size 0), one just plain ugly lol, and finally one the top rolls inwards and refuses to roll out.
I like the stockinette look and, having been a mother, I know I want booties that have eyelets for ties. My plan has been to make an “easy” pair and then move on to either a feather pattern or arrowhead one. And while I don’t mind paying for a pattern it sort of annoys me to have to pay $5-6 for a plain simple baby bootie pattern, when there are a zillion free ones out there.
Can anyone recommend or send me a pattern for a bootie that will actually come out like the photo if the directions are followed?
since I’m new here they won’t let me post a link to what I like sorry!
I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give!
Thanks so much!
