A quick post today about a lovely quick pattern: Saartje’s Bootees.
This pattern for the most adorable pair of baby bootees is available for free through Ravelry and through Saartje’s website (on the right side of the page).
These tiny bootees are the perfect quick project for when the weather is too hot for anything mentally taxing or large and woolen. These bootees are worked on two needles, with only a few dozen yards of sock yarn and knit up in only a couple hours. (If you want to make slightly larger bootees, break out larger needles and thicker wool.)
You could knit them to match a favorite outfit, or a new hand-knit sweater. Or, go crazy and knit a whole rainbow of bootees.
In two-tone neutrals, these bootees are perfect for a classy little gentleman.
And, they are a great excuse to buy those adorable novelty buttons you’ve had your eye on for months.
Knit up a whole herd of bootees to keep in your “just-in-case” gift box. Throw a pair in with a pack of onesies and a card for a perfect gift for any new parent.
