‘Lila’ Stay-On Baby Shoe

The Lila baby bootie has a pretty scalloped edge and a plain stockinette foot which is perfect for embroidery. It's an easy knit and a great design to play with colour and yarn. They're part of my stay-on shoe range, your baby can kick, crawl, pull and they'll still have warm little toes! There are no fiddly ties, they slip on easily then the structured, elasticated ankle band keeps them on, while still being flexible and comfy.

You will practise knitting in the round and Kitchener stitch. There are photo tutorials for all of the techniques plus photo stitch guides. The pattern has one small seam at the ankle. Blocking is advised to give a professional finish.

Choosing Your Yarn
