hi everyone welcome to my channel crochet for baby thank you for watching and thank you for subscribing in today’s tutorial I’m going to show you how to knit these baby booties they are super easy to make I’d say that they’re ideal for beginners this is what they look like I made a pair in this pink color and I also did these here in this color blue they were super easy to make so without further say let’s get started and thank you for watching ok to begin I’ll be using these four millimeter kneading needles and I’m using this light number
3 baby yarn I’m using Lion Brand baby soft and I’m using this color little boy blue I’ll leave a link down here in the information box to where you can purchase this yarn along with the kneading needles that I use ok so to begin we need to cast on 38 stitches now the method that I’m going to use to cast down my stitches is the longtail cast on with the longtail cast on you leave a long tail this side here this tail here measure is about 38 inches which is about 84 centimeters so I have it on my right side now this yarn here is coming
from the skein so the first thing that we need to do here is I’m going to insert my needing needle right through that loop that I made okay so make sure you make a loop now with tail on the right and this strand coming from the skein and search your index finger and open it with both fingers and do this okay you’re going to go from left to right left to right grabbing a loop so insert your needle grab a loop see that’s two three for five you can also use any other cast on method I have another method in my kneading channel with a crochet hook so
I’ll leave a link to that down here in the information box I think that one is also very easy to do okay so here we’re going to continue that’s six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 [Music] 29 3 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 and 38 okay now we have 38 stitches on our kneading needle now what I’m going to do here at the end this I’d like to tie a knot so I’m just going to tie here a knot so that this last stitch here doesn’t come undone right there and what I also like to do
is I like to cut this part here a bit shorter so that when I start to knit I don’t accidentally grab this and instead of the one that comes from this game okay so now what we’re going to do is we’re going to knit every row for about 13 rows okay so to begin here we’re going to knit the first stitch and all the ones that follow so now here you’re going to insert your needle here to the one side like this and wrap your yarn like this pull a loop and let go of this first stitch okay now again do the same thing for the second stitch grab a loop
and remove that stitch now this is the knit stitch make sure that when you cast on your stitches that they’re nice and loose not too tight so that this first stitch is not or this first row is not as difficult [Music] so you’re going to knit every one of these stitches until you come to the very end so I will meet you here at the end to show you what we need to do next okay I’m here at the end I still have these last two stitches so we’re going to do the same thing we’re going to knit both of them okay and there you have it
the first row is done so now I’m going to grab this needle here on my right side and I’m going to go back and do the same thing now to keep things simple I’m going to knit the first stitch as well okay so you just insert your needle like this and make your first knit stitch okay and then continue and do the rest same way you’re going to knit every stitch continue like this and I will meet you at the end of the second row to show you what we need to do next okay I’m here at the end I just need to finish knitting these two stitches here at the end so
again same way you just knit every single stitch and the second row is done now for roasts 3:13 you’re going to do the exact same thing you’re going to knit every stitch beginning here at the beginning okay remember you knit the first stitch always and then knit every single stitch from here on and then repeat the same roof for a total of 13 rows we have three rows here so continue like this and I’ll meet you once we have thirteen rows to show you what we need to do next okay I have thirteen rows let’s see we have two four six eight ten
twelve thirteen okay and it measures let’s see it measures about an inch and a half which is about about four centimeters okay so now what we’re going to do here is for the fourteen through what we’re going to do is we’re going to knit thirteen so we’re going to knit this first one here as always so knit the first stitch and then the next one so that’s two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen okay so we have 13 – 4 6 8 10 12 13 so now we’re going to purl two together so to purl bring your yarn in
front and insert your needle like this through two of the stitches and then purl so wrap the yarn and remove your stitch okay so now here we’re going to knit 8 so one two three four five six seven eight and now we’re going to do the following we’re going to skip this one put it on this needle and knit the next one okay and now the stitch that we skipped we’re going to bring it over the stitch we knitted like this see that’s an skp stitch now I have two four six eight ten twelve thirteen stitches remaining on this needle so I’m going to
turn like this now we’re going to slip the first stitch like this now bring your yarn to the back and we’re going to knit nine this one here counts as your first one so there’s one two three four five six seven eight nine okay now these next two we’re going to purl together so bring your yarn in front like this and wrap your yarn and remove your stitch okay so now in this needle we have two four six eight ten twelve now we’re going to turn you’re going to slip the first stitch with the yarn in the back slip the first stitch like this
see and now here we’re going to knit eight including this first one here we’re going to have nine so I’m going to count this one one two three four five six seven eight nine okay and now I’m going to slip this next stitch and knit the next one now pass this stitch that you slipped over the stitch that you just knitted like this now turn I forgot to tell you how many stitches I have here so I have two four six eight ten twelve okay now we’re going to do the same thing as we did at the beginning we’re going to slip
this first stitch like this put your yarn in the back and knit the next day so including this one we’re going to have nine so there’s one two three four five six seven eight nine okay now to finish we’re going to purl these two together now I have 2 4 6 8 10 11 stitches on this needle and we’re going to turn and as you can see this is what it looks like now this is going to be the front of our baby bootie now slip the first stitch again like this and knit the next 8 including this one that we slipped we have 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 & 9
now we’re going to slip this stitch knit the next stitch and the stitch that we slipped we’re going to bring it over the stitch that we knit it like this and now I have 2 4 6 8 10 11 stitches on this needle we’re going to turn okay remember we slip the first stitch like this put your yarn behind and then knit eight including this one there should be nice so that’s two three four five six seven eight nine okay now we’re going to purl these two together bring your yarn in the front and search your needle through the two stitches and then purl
this stitch so on this needle I have now 2 4 6 8 10 we’re going to slip a stitch here the first one and we’re going to knit the next day so there’s one two three four five six seven eight nine now we’re going to slip this next stitch and then the next one we’re going to knit now bring this stitch that we slipped over the stitch that we just knitted and I have two four six eight nine stitches on this kneading needle and I have two four six eight ten stitches on this one so we’re going to go back again and finish same thing we’re going to slip this
stitch and knit the next date including this one we have nine so there’s one two three four five six seven eight nine okay and now we’re going to purl the next to bring your yarn in front wrap your yarn and purl the next two okay so now I have two four six eight nine stitches on this needle so now we’re going to turn now here what we’re going to do is we’re going to slip this first one and we’re going to knit the next date so 1 2 3 4 5 6 [Music] 7:8 now slip the next stitch knit the next stitch and bring this stitch that
we slipped over the stitch that we just knitted ok and now I have 2 4 6 8 9 stitches on this needle so now we’re just going to knit across [Music] we’re not going to make any more reductions here [Music] okay now we should have 28 stitches let’s count them we have 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 stitches now we’re going to turn and in this next drill we’re going to knit every single one of these stitches so remember we knit the first one knit the next one and so on so just continue knitting each one of these rows with a knit stitch all across I will
meet you here at the end to show you what we need to do next okay finish this row and this is what it looks like from the front okay now we’re going to turn here like this and what we’re going to do for the next 20 rows is we’re going to knit two purl two knit two purl two so beginning here these two or the first one we’re going to knit the next one we’re going to knit the next two we’re going to purl like this the next two knit the next two pearl knit to purl two okay continue like this with the same sequence of knit two purl two knit two
purl two all across I will meet you at the end of this row to show you what we need to do next okay I finished this through my last two stitches here were two purl stitches so now I’m going to turn so now here we’re going to do the opposite of what we just did here at the end so we’re going to knit the first 2 now purl the next two and knit the next two and so on now we’re going to do this for a total of 20 rows it’s exactly the same thing that I’m just doing here knit two purl two knit two purl two so continue like this
and I’ll meet you once we have 20 rows now the way that you can tell how many rows you have is if you start counting the little bumps see that’s 1 and 2 those are your rows or if you start counting the V stitches on your knit stitches see 1 and 2 so continue like this until we have 20 rows and then I’ll show you what we need to do next okay finish making 20 rows and this is what it looks like so now what we’re going to do is we’re going to finish this last row here okay one thing here the way that I like to bind off this
last row is by using a slightly bigger kneading needle this one here is a 4.5 so with this one here I’m going to start binding off this last row so to do that this first stitch here we’re going to knit knit the next stitch so now what I’m going to do is this first stitch that we knit I’m going to pass it over the second stitch so like this see bring the second stitch here now knit the next stitch bring that stitch over that last stitch that wheat knitted like this and then knit the next stitch and bring this over like this and
see this is how we’re going to continue all the way to the end okay so continue like this doing the exact same thing you knit the stitch and then pass this one over that one that we just knitted okay so continue like this all the way to the end I’ll meet you there to show you what we need to do next okay I’m here at the end this is my last stitch so here I’m just going to knit this last stitch I don’t pass this second stitch back here through the first one here and now I’m going to cut my yarn because this part here is done now make sure
that you leave a pretty long tail because this is what we’re going to use to join here in the back so make sure you leave a pretty big tail it’s better to have more than less so cut a pretty long tail now with a crochet hook I’m just going to pass this yarn through this last loop here see like this and this part here is done this is what our baby bootie looks like okay so now what we’re going to do is we’re going to close this part here and then the bottom so to do this first part here we’re going to turn this like this this is the
wrong side so beginning here I’m going to show you where I’m going to be inserting my my needle so if you notice if you pull this you see these little stitches along the side right there that’s where I’m going to be inserting my needle okay so let me pass this yarn through this needle so that we can start okay so here my yarn is on this side so now I’m going to go to the very top stitch right here and pass my needle through that first stitch and then go back again into this very first stitch right here and now go back again into that same
stitch and now this part here is closed and that’s what it looks like right there okay so now we’re going to go on this side because my yarn is on this side I’m going to go on this side so I’m going to find the first stitch along the side on this side so my first stitch is right there so insert your needle there and then go to this side and find your first stitch on this side that little bar that I showed you at the beginning so your first one might be a little hard it’s right there right there so insert your needle there now find the
next stitch and just insert your hook into the same stitch where you came out and it’s right there so go in there and then insert your needle into the same stitch you came out right there and this is what we’re going to do back and forth back and forth from left to right left to right or right to left whichever way you start it see it’s right there now this is all I’m going to do until I come to this part here so continue like this and I’ll meet you here to show you how we’re going to do this next section okay I’m here at the
very edge this is the last stitch here before we start on this first row of garter stitch see right there you can tell we have the wavy pattern there so now here we’re going to pull this don’t pull too tight we’re just going to pull a little so that this part here closes like this see now it’s closed and that’s what it looks like so just pull a little and that’s what it looks like right there now we’re going to turn this the other way or the other side like this and see now here’s the seam you can see the seam
here on the right side but since we’re going to be folding our baby bootie like this you won’t see it but what you’re going to see is here this is where the seam is and see it’s a very nice seam you can barely tell where it was closed okay so now we’re going to close this part here so remember we turned it over to the right side now okay so now here the important thing here is you need to make sure that these rows are lined up with one another okay so that once we come here to the end we have exactly the same number of stitches we’re not short
on one side or the other so here to begin my yarn is on the left side here after we turned it so we’re going to find this first stitch of the very edge right there see looks like a little bump so right there insert your needle and now go to the row that corresponds to this row here see this one here so go into that very stitch in the very edge now go to the next bump you row see right there into that very edge and then find the row that corresponds on this side which is this one here and find that other stitch same thing for the next and for the next here
here here okay and here I’m almost at the end so I think there’s one more up here so just insert your needle there and here this is where we started so insert your needle there now this part here as you can see that’s what it looks like now just leave it like that don’t pull or anything because if you pull then you’re going to create a seam back here and I don’t want that so now we’re going to close this part here so I’ll come back and show you how we’re going to do this section okay so now to
close this part here what we’re going to do is we’re going to turn this once again like this okay so here [Music] we’re going to go into these very stitches on the very edge and then into the other side and then back again into this very edge stitch and into the other side [Music] just like this [Music] so this part here you can continue on your own until you come to about here we’re going to leave about half an inch about that much so continue like this until you come to about here and then I will show you what we need to do next
okay I’m here at this other end so now here what we’re going to do is we’re going to fold us like this now my yarn is on the right side so I’m going to go through this same stitch that I have here and I’m going to go through the very center right there now go back in through that same stitch and close this part here one more time like this now go into the next stitch right here on the side and do the same thing [Music] right there now this part here is closed you can make one more stitch if you like but I think that’s fine right there so now
here we’re going to go back to this other side so insert your needle through the very center and come out into that stitch right there I’m gonna do the same thing one more time like this and now go through one stitch here on the side and then one more time and this part here is done now I’m going to cut my yarn and I’m just going to weave my ends cut it a little bit shorter so like this and now I’m going to also cut this end here and now I’m going to turn it to the right side and there is my baby bootie that’s what it looks like from here and
there’s the back and that’s all done there you have it see how pretty that is and it was super easy to make so now we can fold this here and then we can either add a ribbon along this part here or along the top I did my other one here and I added a little ribbon along this part here yes and our baby booties are dunder super cute and very easy to make and that’s what it looks like from the bottom ok I also did the baby booties here in blue I also do the same thing and that’s what it looks like they’re super cute and super easy to make and
here’s the other one okay so this has been today’s tutorial I hope you liked it thank you so much for watching until next time you
