Ugg Baby Boots (as seen in previous post)

The original "Knitty Gritty" pattern for these boots can be found on DIY network. I rewrote the pattern for a newborn baby as the original pattern only listed sizes from 3 months.






SIZE
0-3 months (length of foot approx 3.5 inches/ 9cm)

MATERIAL
Small amounts of main colour yarn, and contrast yarn.
DPNeedles 4mm and 5mm

GAUGE
21st x 28R = 10x10cm with needles 5mm

DIRECTIONS

This boot is knit all in one piece, with a seam along the back of the leg and down the middle of the sole of the foot. The sole is knit in garter stich (knit every row), the rest of the boot is knit in Stockinette stich (knit RS, purl WS).

CO 22 stiches with needles 4mm and CC, knit one row

With right side facing, begin to work the sole as follows:

R1: k1, yo, k9, yo, k2, yo, k9, yo, k1
R2 and all subsequent WS rows: knit all stiches, but knit the yo’s twisted, i.e. into the back of the yarn over
R3: k2, yo, k9, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k9, yo, k2
R5: k3, yo, k9, yo, k7, yo, k9, yo, k3
R7: k4, yo, k9, yo, k5, yo, k4, yo, k9, yo, k4
R9: k5, yo, k9, yo, k6, yo, k6, yo, k9, yo, k5

After row 10, change to larger needle size and MC and continue in stockinette stitch for 8 rows

Shape the instep as follows:
R1: k26, ssk, turn work (ignore the remaining stiches on the needle for now)
R2: sl1, p7, p2tog, turn work (again ignore any remaining stiches)
R3: sl1, k7, ssk, turn
R4: sl1, p7, p2tog, turn

Repeat R3 and R4 4 more times.

R13: sl1, k7, ssk, knit to end of row, turn
R14: p19, p2tog, p to end of row

Now, with RS facing, knit 5cm of stockinette across all stiches.

Change to CC, knit 2 rows (garter stich), then BO knitwise.

FINISHING
Sew back seam using mattress stitch (www.knittinghelp.com shows you how)

With CC, make a fake sewing stich line down the ‘side seams’ and across the instep, to imitate Ugg boots (if required).

Wow. You have some Amazing patterns.

Would you give me permission to reproduce these on Craftacular.com?

We'll, obviously, credit the patterns to you and give a link back here. If you'd like to see an example of a pattern page, you can check out the cabled fingerless gloves page.

Let me know if you'd be interested!

I love these booties! The original DIY link no longer works. I have already purchased the yarn. Is there any chance that you have the original pattern for baby booties for a 3 month or older? Thanks very much!

I have the same question as Heather. Would like to knit them for an older baby.
thanks

Do you by chance have the original pattern from DIY for the 3 months and older? I just found these boots and would love to make them for my granddaughter. I'm not really good at sizing patterns up. Do you just use the same instructions and use bigger needles? Still, I would appreciate the original pattern if you have it. Thanks for your time.

Have you got a picture by any chance? I'd love to tackle these but want to see the design first.

Also, did anyone manage to get the larger size (for 3months plus) pattern?
