How to Loom Knit Baby Booties with No Holes and No Bulk
Tiny socks are cheap, quick, easy to make and baby booties make great gifts when you add a little hat and pair of no-scratch mittens. On this post you will find a written pattern for the Baby Booties and a video tutorial that is less than 12 minutes but takes you step by step through this fun project. I have put a lot of emphasis on the heel which is the most difficult part of the little shoe. I worked hard to make sure that you would be left with a sock free of holes and bulk, perfect for the baby’s comfort and warmth.
Anyone can manage making a pair. Plus, I assure you that you have enough yarn right now to complete you first pair. In fact you can make them with scraps of yarn. That was what I used to figure out my pattern. How cool is that?
