Those are so cute MiaBlaze!  And with all of the people I know that are having babies, they would be the perfect gift.  So please, please post a tute! Grin

Ask, and ye shall receive...

Easy knitted booties...

(List of needs: needles, 1 skien of yarn, 3 stitch holders, ribbon, and somehow to count rows- trust me, don't skip this one!)

I use worsted weight with size 7 needles or sport weight with size 8 needles. Depending on how loose you knit, these could fit a toddler or an infant.

Cast on 16 stitches (You'll be starting at the top- at the band around the ankle- the part that rolls down)

rows 1-3 k2/p2 ribbing
rows 4-10 k
row 11 (the row for the ribbon) k1, yo, k2together, yo (repeat until 1 stitch remains- knit it)
row12 (begin dividing) k6, put onto a stitch holder marked #1, k5 more stitches, leave them on the needle, place the remaining 5 on a stitch holder marked #2 (you did not knit these, they are still row 11)
row 13 (there are 5 stitches on the needle now) k12 rows... now, place these stitches on stitch holder #3.
Cut the yarn- leaving a 16" tail or longer

Here's the only complicated part. Right now, your bootie looks a little odd... kind of like an upside down "T". The cross bar of the "T" are the sides and top, the vertical part is the part of the bootie that is on the top of the foot. You're going to stitch combining these now. It gets tight, I'm warning you, but it'll work out in the end.

Now, pick up the stitches from holder #2. You will pick these up with the tip facing to the OUTSIDE of the bootie (not towards the "T"). Join a strand of yarn and knit these stitches.

With the 6 you just stitched, you will keep the needles in the same hands - now pick up 6 stitches from the SIDE of the vertical part of the "T" with your empty needle. Knit these 6. At this point, it should be awkward and tight... keep going!

Slide the stitches from holder #3 onto your needle and stitch these now.

Pick up 6 stitches with your empty needle from the OTHER SIDE of the vertical part of the "T". Knit these 6. (You should see the toe part lumping a bit, now).

Slide the stitches from holder #1 onto your free needle. Knit these.

knit 4 more rows.
Bind off loosely.

Use the tail as well as the tail from cutting your yarn earlier to sew up the back of the bootie.

So- this is the top, and sides that you've just completed. Let's do the sole now...

Cast on 4 stitches (starting with the heel)
Rows 1-8 knit
Row 9 k2, increase 1, knit 1 (now you have 5 stitches)
Row 10 knit
Row 11 k2 increase 1, knit 2
Row 12 knit
Row 13 knit 3, increase 1, knit 2 (you should have 7 stitches here)
Row 14-18 knit

bind off, leaving a long (like, 30") tail at the end. Use this tail to sew the sole to the bottom of the bootie.

Now, look for the ol' Row 11- the one for the ribbon. It should be pretty obvious, as it looks holey! Take ribbon and weave it through this row, ending both ends at the front so you can tie a bow. (I usually seal the ends somehow so they don't fray).

Roll over the top!

So- the first one I did of these was difficult. The second was GREAT! Now I have these things down pat!

HINT: knit LOOSELY! This helps when your at the toe part- that gets tough quickly!!!
