mbm Knitted Booties Pattern

19 August 2015
Pattern update: To include multiple sizes.

After making several knitted slippers for big feet, I decided to make some little booties using the same technique. These knitted booties work up fast from any type of worsted weight yarn in your stash. The finished pattern size small, makes a bootie with about a 4″ long sole.

    Shouldn’t row 5 of the instep = 29 stitches, not 31?

      Hi Marilyn!
      Thank you for your comment. I actually went through the pattern this morning and made a bootie. I decided my pattern was not as well written as it should be so I went ahead and made changes to it. Please take a look and let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing your finished work!

    I am unable to print this pattern. I have tried several ways. Can you help?

  5. Even after the corrections I still had to chage the numbers in order to get 32 sts 36 sts ect. Row 2 had to change K12 to K 10 than I get 32 sts. Row 4 had to change K14 to K12 in order to get 36 sts. and so on. ????????

    Hi, love this pattern. How do I make the larger sizes? Say for a one year old? The pattern is only for newborn?

    • marni says:

      Hi Rachel! Yes this is written for a new baby – if you could tell me the length in inches of the sole for the one year old I can add that size to the pattern for you

    Thanks Marni have a lot of handspan chunky yarn off my sheep so this will suit very well. Will let you know how I go.

    Hi, I love these booties but I’m having some trouble with the instep instructions. I just completed row 11 and I have the correct amount of stitches left but I can’t figure out how to do row 12 when my working yarn is not at the end of the row. Can you help?

  11. marni says:

    Hello everyone! I’m happy to report I have added the Medium and Large sizes to the pattern, and even put together a video tutorial which I hope will be helpful to all of you having a go at this pattern. The video can be found here: http://www.marnimadeit.com/knitted-baby-booties-tutorial/

    Would like to knit these booties. Unfortunately, the pattern will not print for me either. Can you help, please?

    • marni says:

      You should be able to view and print the pattern of you have the Adobe pdf reader which is available for free — do you have that installed?

    Ok first of all…WHAT A CUTE BABY!!!!!! Squeeeee! I’m knitting a bunch of these up tonight, it looks like the perfect pattern. ute as a bug? Check. Good size toe box? Check. Jaunty? Check. Stays on the foot? Check. Thanks! (And I just downloaded and printed the pattern from the link (Jan. 22) and had no problemas so thanks again!)

    Ok, I hate to be annoying, but I’m having trouble getting the correct number 0f stitches:
    Row 1: -fine
    Row 2: K1, M1, K1, M1, K12, (come to marker) K12, K1, M1, K1, M1 = 36 (not 32)
    (k1+m1=3; k1+m1=3; K12 (marker after 18 st) k12+k1+m1=15; k1+m1=3=18 total =36)
    UNLESS !!! I think I have reached nervana 🙂 is the first K st. PART of the M1 stitch? Because then the numbers work.
    Or am I a dork?
