These darling baby booties are one of my earliest designs, but still a total favorite of mine. I designed them because it seemed most baby booties were geared toward baby girls and I wanted some for my little man (now he’s almost 10, I can’t hardly believe it!)
Even though I designed them with baby boys in mind, these baby boat shoes are perfect for a baby boy or girl, depending on your color choices.
The 3-6 month pattern is a freebie on my blog, but if you want additional sizing, the PDF includes sizing from newborn to Toddler size 9. (just make sure to add some non-slip texture on the bottom for your little walker!

Attach to shoe with yarn needle and the tail. Start about 2 sts above the strap on the shoe, and go in and out with your needle, all around the toe and over to the other side. Make sure to secure the end very well.
To finish, using white yarn (I prefer cotton) and a yarn needle, sew down through the hole in the left strap. Leave enough yarn on your end to tie a bow later.
Continue around the shoe, just under the top loops, and sew around the shoe. Finish by going up and out through the right loop. Trim yarn if needed.
Enjoy these little baby boat bootes!
