Introduction: Baby Converse Booties
Having received multiple requests on how I made these Chuck T's, I had to fess up that they weren't my idea. I found the cutest pattern http://xalleykatx.livejournal.com/50196.html?mode=reply
Unfortunately, not realizing that they would be so popular, I didn't take "in progress" pix but I can tell you that it was an easy knit... even for a beginner like me! Okay, so I had to take a bit slowly as I had never done short rows, intarsia, I-cord... but in a jiffy these were done!
These Chuck T's were knit for my soon-to-be-nephew. They were his Christmas present. I used some yarn I had in my stash that was (a) the color I wanted and (b) the weight I wanted. I used Caron Simply Soft in White and Navy. Size 4 and size 5 needles.
The star logos were created by cutting felt in the desired shapes and sewing them onto the booties after they were knit using thread. I think it ALMOST took me more time to sew these little logos than it did to knit the shoes.
Perfect little gift for my soon-to-be-nephew. Baby shoes that don't look like baby booties, but rather little Converse court shoes. Hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I did.
