Beautiful Projects – Grown-up booties

by ysoldateague May 17, 2016 1 min read

There’s nothing quite like a new knitter who’s excited about their craft, and I have a friend who’s learning the basics with the plan of making things for her daughter. Whenever I hear of people starting out with needles and yarn I always think of Ysolda’s  Grown Up Booties pattern. It really is the perfect first project to master the knit stitch, some basic decreases and that’s about it. And of course quick – you have an awesome pair of booties on your feet in no time! So for today, here are a few of my favourite modified pairs.

A truly wonderful pair, knit by mustaavillaa, I love everything about these – the contrasting colours, the button and little loop all work together so well.

A pair knit simply, but beautifully by mireo. This is a great pattern for a gradient yarn, especially if you can get them to match like this!

Felting is something I haven’t done much of, but its such a great idea for slippers or anything that gets a lot of hard wearing. This pair were knit by knittyanj, love the buttons too!

I really like this pair, knit by pacasha. The stripes work really well and grey and red is such a classic combination!
