Joseph Stay-On Baby Sandal

A vintage classic with a modern twist, these baby sandals are as beautiful as they are practical having been, lovingly designed to stay on babies’ feet. The Joseph Sandal features an elasticated ankle casing and open-top foot with a simple cable to rib pattern over the toe. The fabric created is lightweight and a great alternative to socks. They are perfect for summer or for layering over tights in the winter. The sandals with tights and little shorts combo would be super cute!

Technical Detail

The pattern has been technically edited, and test knitted. You will practise provisional cast-on, elastic bind-off, cables, knitting in the round and Kitchener stitch. The pattern has no seams and minimal finishing. Blocking is essential to relax the cables and give a professional finish. For 3D view see video below.
