Candy Shoppe Baby Booties


Candy Shoppe Baby Booties

Sugary sweet and equally as cute, the Candy Shoppe Baby Booties are the knits to beat for your little one. This darling knit baby bootie pattern is a simple way to keep baby's tiny tootsies warm and covered all season long. The simple design lends itself to any number of yarn colors or prints. Have fun experimenting with different colored ribbon for a cute bow finish.

Instructions not clear especially with the 11 stitches on hold. Where should I add them? Baby due in 3 days need to finish asap. Thanks

According to the pattern as written, they are being held until the last knit row, then cast off with the other stitches.

I am having trouble with directions starting with "Shape foot." From where or how do I "pick up stitches" so they are increasing. Got lost.

You are picking up the stitches form the piece that you have already knit, to create the foot.

With the news of me going to be a grandma, these booties were the first I knitted. Quick and easy. I prettied them up with embroidering roses across the front of the booties. They were just to cute. I must for the new baby!

When I tapped on the "print this pattern..." link for the Baby Moccasin, this is where I was sent. I really want the moccasin.

Hello ccatxknitter! Can you please provide the specific name of the pattern you are trying to access? We have several baby moccasin patterns on the site. Thank you! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
