Fuzzy knitted boot slippers
Knitted Boot Slippers - Child
This is a favorite pattern of mine and I have created a crocheted version of it for those that don't knit. Here is the knitted version.
1 to 3 yrs of age size # 6 needles
4 to 6 yrs of age size # 8 needles
Knitting Worsted Yarn
Cast on 52 sts and work 8 rows of garter st. (knit each row).
Row 9: Knit 22 sts, k2 tog; put a marker on needle; k2, put another marker on needle; slip 1 st, k1, pass slip st over, knit to the end of the row.
Row 10: Purl to marker, K2, purl to end of row.
Row 11: Knit to within 2 sts of marker, k 2 tog, move marker, k 2, move marker, slip 1, k1, pass slip stitch over, knit to end of row.
Repeat Rows 10 and 11 until only 28sts remain on needle.
Then knit 8 rows of garter sts and on 9th row, bind off loosely.
Sew sole and back heel seams together.
Try using baby yarn and size 4 needles for baby size booties. If you want to make
the foot to be longer or shorter just add or subtract stitches from the cast on total in
increments of two.
My pink and white variation it the same pattern but changes where it says to knit 8 rows even.
I fasten off the pink and tie on one strand of white sport weight yarn and one strand of white
eyelash yarn. Using these two strands of white yarns I knit the 8 rows evenly. This makes for
a soft fuzzy top on the slipper.
