Posts Tagged ‘Knitted sheepskin soled baby booties’

I decided to use my trusty old pattern from August 2012 to make a pair of booties for a small newborn baby and by using a size smaller needles was able to make some very little booties. The sole also needed to be cut a bit smaller.

I’ve rewritten the pattern below so the main stitch is a garter stitch to make it look more modern, but have kept the moss stitch along the top of the foot. The hat I knitted is called “Newborn Cozy Cap” by Cathy Payson.

Sheepskin sole:

On a piece of paper, mark the length you want your sole to be, about 9.5cm (11.5cm, 13.5cm). Draw in a sole shape like a kidney and there is your pattern. Trace around it on to sheepskin making sure you have a right and left foot. Cut out with scissors and trim the wool to about a cm thick. Use a hole punch to evenly space sewing or crochet holes around the edge.

In between all of the visiting and celebrating Christmas and New Year, a few projects were completed. First was another ‘Fabric Forest Topiary by Cynthia Ann Dubbers’, a crochet hexagon cot blanket, a pair of knitted sheepskin soled baby booties and a Moda ‘Moss Trim Baby Jacket’ in dk wool. The weather was so beautiful outside today that a few hours were spent collecting poppy seeds to scatter next year.

What a beautiful day out there, spring is obviously just around the corner! Since I realised how easy it is to modify a regular bootie pattern (see a few blogs ago) I’ve been building up a stock pile of these sheepskin soled knitted booties. It’s easy to change the pattern on the one I wrote out and do something different in the first 5 (7,9)  rows of knitting to give a different look.

Here’s how to make any of your favourite baby bootee patterns into sheepskin soled patterns. If it starts from the sole up, cast on the number of stitches the pattern says, before you start working up to the instep shaping. I’ve included a pattern I’ve worked out to give you the idea, modified from a free online vintage bootee pattern (Pom Pom bootees). Decorate with any motif across the upper inset.

A friend gave me a pattern for these knitted sheepskin soled baby booties, you can make any sort of motif to decorate the front. I haven’t found a free pattern on the net for them but I didn’t look very hard since I already had this one.
