Happy babies jingle while they shake their booties!
An intermediate difficulty baby bootie pattern which is knitted flat and then finished with a simple seam. Jester Booties can be knitted in your choice of five or six contrasting colours. Bootie size can be varied by using a different weight of yarn and a different needle size, allowing a range of sizes to fit 0 – 12 months (depending on baby’s foot size). Don’t be put off by the large number of colours involved – you’ll only ever be knitting with a maximum of two at a time.
This pattern is a great way to use up leftover scraps of fingering or sock weight yarn – very little is needed of each colour. If you don’t want to put bells on them, you could add tiny pom poms or make little knitted bobbles.
