These booties are fit for a prince! The Royal Baby Booties are a gorgeous shade of deep blue and have a handsome stitch design that hug baby's tiny feet in all the right places. Plus, it is so easy that it is perfect for anyone who wants to learn how to knit baby booties. This classic baby booties knitting pattern is a must-knit for grandmothers, aunts, and mothers of tiny bundles of joy. The Royal Baby Booties make a great DIY  baby shower gift or first birthday present. We love these booties in the blue shown in the picture, but they would look just as sweet in a soft pastel or creamy white.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is not a good pattern. The directions are wrong and the directions for assembly is very very vague. I have no idea on how to assemble this bootie. Basically wasted my time.

will I get a reply from Katy Boyce ??? re Royal Baby Booties Cuff question.?

Hello WRAAC, unfortunately, we are unable to locate the original source of this pattern, so it's difficult to know the designer's intent. However, when a pattern gives you "XX rows or XX cm/in/etc.," you always prioritize the cm/in/etc. because gauge varies with each person. So, in this case, the 42 (or whatever it was supposed to be) rows is supposed to be an estimate for 6cm. If you hit 6cm in fewer or more rows, that's okay. The important thing is to get to 6cm. Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeKnitting.com

as a beginner this was not straight forward .with 8ply as recomemded 16 rows= 6cm. thanks I wasnt sure if it had a big turn over after knitting I could see it was far too thick. Will start again. Thanks.

re Cuff repeat 42 rows or 6 cm.? 6cm is much less than 42rows what should it be ?

Hi WRAAC, to answer your question, although no gauge is given above for the rows, it can't possibly be 42 rows, so I think the 6 cm is correct. You can see when you knit it what it should be, probably 22 rows, and maybe you can post back here what you discovered.

thanks 8ply 16 rows = 6cm

P2tog= knit 2 together I think this should be pearl 2 together in the Abbreviations above.

Hi grandmatomato 1080 461, thank you for pointing out this error. We have adjusted the pattern accordingly. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

What age range this pattern for? Newborns? 0-3 months? 3-6 months?

I assume you have to use 2 strands of yarn. Is this correct? I don't understand how you would have 8 ply otherwise. Please let me know.

8ply is what dk weight yarn is called in Australia and great Britain. hope this helps.
