Now that the cold weather has not only arrived but settled in quite comfortably for a few months, it’s time for us to do the same! We can always be found spending our autumn season knitting for our loved ones, and our littlest kids are no exception. In fact, one of our favourite things to knit in the fall is baby booties because everyone’s littlest family members can use warmer toes this time of year!
Just in case you love the idea of knitting all kinds of toasty fall baby booties this season just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the cutest and warmest bootie knitting patterns and design ideas we’ve come across in this year’s search so far.
1. Little Eyes baby booties
Are you quite an experienced knitter who goes through phases in the effects and stitch patterns you like making, and you’ve really been feeling eyelets lately? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at these adorable eyelet topped baby booties designed by Inma Gijon.
2. Splish Splash Splosh baby booties
Just in case you live in a place that gets a very wet fall with lots of rain, here’s a design that, while not actually fit for splashing in puddles thanks to being made from simple yarn, will at least have your baby looking the part while also staying warm. Get this adorable rain boot style bootie knitting pattern from Julie Taylor.
3. Bitty baby booties
Perhaps you’ve actually never knit a pair of baby booties before and you’re looking for a very quick and simple design because you’ve noticed your little one gets rather cold pretty quickly? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Small + Friendly made these adorable wrapping style booties that fit even the smallest newborns.
4. Pumpkin baby booties
If you’re going to go to the trouble of making DIY baby booties for fall, would you prefer to actually give them a theme, since you’re in design control when you’re the knitter? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Aunt Janet’s Designs designed and knit these adorable little pumpkin booties, complete with twirling stems just like the real thing!
5. Easy baby booties
Just in case we caught your attention with the starter booties idea because you are a beginner but you’d rather try making a more classic style than the wrapping kind, maybe even with a folding top, here’s a great alternative for your consideration! Check out how these simple booties were made using easy garter, stockinette, and ribbing on Gina Michelle.
6. Mouse baby booties
Were you very interested indeed in making some kind of novelty shaped baby booties for the fall because you just can’t resist how adorable the themed or character based designs look? Then we’d definitely encourage you to take a look at how Bebe Knits made these cute little mouse shaped booties happen! They’re made from yarn that’s the perfect weight and thickness for keeping little toes warm in the fall.
7. Simple Seamless baby booties
If you’re going to learn how to make simple baby booties this fall, would you much prefer to make a pair that doesn’t involve any seaming at all, since that has been your least favourite part of everything you’ve made so far? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at this very easy but completely seamless slip-on bootie pattern featured on Blog of Joy!
8. Little Converse baby booties
Were you intrigued by the idea of making cute little fall baby booties that look a lot like actual shoes but the rubber boots idea doesn’t make a lot of sense for where you live, since fall is usually quite dry? In that case, we’d suggest taking a look at how Blanchn made these adorable Converse high top runner inspired booties instead!
9. Elephant baby booties
Just in case the toasty little mouse shaped booties really caught your attention because you love the animal theme but you’re just not convinced that the mice themselves are quite what you’re looking for, here’s an alternative design that’s a little more “wild”! Check out how Lulla made thick, warm booties that are shaped like adorable elephants complete with curling trunks.
10. Sweet Eyelet booties
Were you quite intrigued by the first idea we showed you that made use of eyelet techniques, but you’re looking for something a little simpler and maybe a little more explicitly girly too? In that case, we think you simply must take a closer look at how these adorably frilled booties designed by The Creatory Shop were made.
11. Pirate baby booties
Just in case you’re a beginner who has been hoping to learn not only bootie construction but also simple things like how to colour change and make cute stripes, here’s a pattern that will teach you both at once! Check out how Handy Little Me designed and created these adorable little mid-shin height booties that were inspired by the kinds of boots you’d see on pirates in kids’ movies.
12. Oh Baby! baby booties
If you’re going to put your custom knitting skills to good use because you can’t find pre-made shoes in store that will keep baby warm and look the way you want them to, would you rather make something that looks like a common style you’d wear yourself? In that case, we have a feeling these cute little booties from Double Diamond Knits that look a lot like two classic styles from the ever popular Ugg boot brand might be right up your alley!
13. Baby Uggs with buttons
Did we really pique your attention when we mentioned DIY baby Ugg boots because those are absolutely your favourite style of boot to wear as well, but you were really hoping to see the buttoned style you love so much and have actually owned so many times? Then we think you’ll be rather pleased indeed to see this alternative pattern from iKnits instead!
14. Nightmare Skull baby booties
The arrival of a fall chill means Halloween is coming, which means that spooky themed booties are the perfect thing to make your little one! That’s why we loved this design from Lulla so much. They show you how to make little booties with toes that look like skulls. These are an especially great option if you’re a big fan of the movie Nightmare Before Christmas!
15. Sock Monkey booties
Have you always loved the way DIY toy sock monkeys look especially cuddly thanks to the fact that they’re classically made from thick fall socks? Then we have a feeling you’re going to really enjoy the look of these adorable sock monkey inspired knitted baby booties from Aunt Janet’s Designs!
