Keep sweet toes warm with these adorable knitting patterns for baby booties
Next to baby hats, baby booties seem like the most quintessential knitting project for babies. For years, expectant mothers have been depicted as knitting booties while awaiting their new arrival. Baby booties remain one of the most greatly appreciated handmade gifts for newborns.
Booties are also wonderful charity knitting projects. Many organizations, particularly those offering services to needy families, appreciate receiving donated baby booties.
Below are two series of free knitting patterns for baby booties. As with the recent article on free knitting patterns for baby hats, these are divided into quick/easy and more challenging. Pick a style you like and start those needles!
