These baby bootee slippers are a breeze to make. They are knit flat, then sewn up the middle of the sole and heel. It is a one size pattern, but you can vary the size by using different weight yarns. A bootee made out of DK weight yarn and 3.5mm needles will be approximately 4.5" long, but if you use a sock weight yarn and 2.5mm needles it will measure about 3.75" long. In the picture below you can see the difference in sizes. The large fits my 7 1/2 month old 20 lb. baby. The small is more of a newborn size - approx. 0 to 6 months. The blue and red slippers were made with a Fleece Artist DK weight yarn and features rolled cuffs. The beige slippers have a shorter cuff. I think they would also look great two-toned. For instance, you could choose a colour for the sole and cuff, and a complimentary colour for the top of the foot. If you were to do this, I would change colours after you knit 15 rows in step #8, and again when you start the ribbing for the cuff in step#19.
WHAT YOU NEED:
*SSK = slip a stitch as if to knit, slip a stitch as if to knit, then knit both stitches together.
