The first footwear for young children arebooties. As a rule, they are made of fabric or yarn. This version of shoes for kids is acceptable, since the booties do not weigh a small leg and do not rub. Booties, knitted from yarn are soft touch and comfortable to use. The needlewomen try to come up with more and more types of pins, including choosing interesting and matching colors depending on the child's sex, as well as various patterns of knitting. These bootees differ in their shape, which resembles a boat, and there is also a special strap that allows you to fix the baby's leg. This is very important, so that the booties do not fall off the feet of a small child. The strap is fixed with a button, you can also fasten it with a satin ribbon, rivets on the magnet or without it. Necessary materials: Yarn of mint color - 35 g. Yarn of red color - 10 g. Knitting needles № 3 Knitting needles Buttons - 2 pcs. Needle with a wide eyelet. Hook # 4. Sewing thread. Booteki "Boats" begin to knit from the soles. The sole and main part of the booties will be made of mint-colored yarn. To do this, on the spokes at number 3 we type 40 loops. We sew 2 rows without adding new loops. Now it is necessary to form the sole byadding new loops. Next row we begin to knit so (row number 3): take off the first loop, make a cape, tie it to the middle of the row, we make a cape, we sew 3 loops and again make a cape, tie it to the end of the row and make a cap before the last loop. The next row under number 4 we sew without crochets. Rows 5,7 and 9 are typed similarly to the 3rd row. Rows 6, 8 and 10 are typed similarly to the 4th row. Thus, the loops will increase and they should be on the spoke 56. We pass to 3 knitting needles and divide the resulting number of loops into 3 parts, that is, there will be 18 loops on the side spokes, and 20 loops on the middle spokes. We knit in a circle, changing the color of the thread. So, we sew the 11th row with a thread of mint color. In the 12th row we introduce a red thread and knit in the following way: we sew the first loop with the wrong one, make the cap and we do not tie the next loop, but remove it on the right knitting needle, then again the back loop and the cap and remove it until the end of the series. In the 13th row, we introduce a thread of mint color and knit like this: the first loop is purl-knitted, we sew the cape together with the removed loop, again purl and so on until the end of the series. We send the rows of numbers 14, 16 and 18 in the same way as the 12th row. Rows numbered 15, 17 and 19 are bound similarly to the 13th row. Now it is necessary to cut several loops inarea toe socks booties. To do this, in the 20th row we sew the first 13 loops, the next 30 loops we sew two loops together and 13 loops simply we sew. After such a scheme, 41 loops should remain on the spokes. We make 21-25 rows of facial loops, while alternating the color of the thread. In the 26th row, we leave the first 10 loops, close the next loops (21 pieces), and leave the remaining 10 not closed. The first and last 10 loops are transferred to one spoke, that is, only 20 loops. We begin to knit the strap for booties. The strap will be made of mint-colored yarn. We send 20 stitches of facial viscous 27 and 28 rows. We type on the spoke an additional 20 loops. As a result, the strap is made of 40 stitches. It is necessary to tie up 8 rows of face loops without adding new loops. We close all the loops and cut off excess threads. We turn the bootie to the wrong side. In the needle with a wide eyelet we thread a mint color and sew up the boot of the booties. We turn the booties on the front side. At the edge of the strap with a hook and yarn mint color make a loop. That is, we sew a chain of 10 loops and tie it to the strap. Sew a sewing thread with a button. By analogous scheme we knit a second booties. The only difference is that you need to mirror an additional 20 loops. The length of these pins is 9 cm. The size of the pins can be adjusted by the number of typed loops, that is, if the size is smaller, then loops should be typed less. Booties "Boats" are ready!
