Sweetheart Baby Booties


Sweetheart Baby Booties

Featuring a high cuff to keep baby's ankles warm, the Sweetheart Baby Booties are a lacy gem you'll treasure long after she has outgrown them. These darling knit baby booties require just one skein of fingering weight yarn and a bit of scrap ribbon for a unique finishing touch. These lacy booties make a great project for knitters who are looking for a slightly more challenging pattern.

What does ssk mean?

Hello kathy 8402917! The term "ssk" stands for "slip, slip, knit." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I'm an experienced knitter but for life of me I can't get the Sweetheart bootie pattern to work out! Can anyone give me any hints please?

It's not a dress - "Lacy knit top and matching undergarments" - http//www.yarnspirations.com/pattern-book/little-b == lessings-183911.html

Where do I find the dress pattern for this I will pay

for some reason I'm having trouble knitting this Item. Are they knitted all in straight needles? I can't get passed the chevron pattern, is this part done in the rounds? These booties are so adorable can't wait to finish them.

I would love to get the pattern for the dress. Anyone?

Unfortunately the dress pattern is not free, so we do not have it on AllFreeKnitting. However, you can purchase it here: http://www.yarnspirations.com/pattern-books/little == -blessings Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I feel like the proverbial broken record, but please tell me also where I can find the dress pattern shown in this pattern. My newest granddaughter will arrive next month, so help please!

Could someone please tell me where I can obtain the dress pattern shown. Many thanks. Isobel Cave

How gorgeous the booties are! Is there a pattern for the sweet little dress also, please?

is there a pattern for the outfit to match the booties
