Knitted Baby Shoes

How darling are these little baby shoes? My friend Marina made these the other day, and I now want all my friends to have newborns so I can make everyone a pair. Apparently they take no time whatsoever to make and even I, with my very limited knitting skills (the only thing I know how to make are scarves) should have no problem making these. The pattern is from a French blog which has a easy to follow tutorial, but I also tried my best translating the instructions. It really is super simple:

Use European size 5 needles and wool. Cast on 6 stitches. Knit 22 rows of pearl stitches. The piece you have knitted should roughly measure 4 cm x 7cm. Cast on 10 stitches on each side of the 6 stitches. You should now have a total of 26 stitches. Knit 10 rows of pearl stitches. Cast off the stitches. you piece should now look like a T. Fold the two side bars of the T over and sew them to the tip of the T and sew the side of shoes together. Voila, one shoe is made! Repeat the process and you will have a cute little pair of shoes.

These are adorable and I’m going to try my hand at a pair. But I just wanted to note that they are garter stitch (i.e., knit every row) so there’s no purling required.

Gosh, I don’t really remember. I think I used knitting needles number 6 (French)?
