Are you looking for baby knitting patterns? You will find links to some of my basic baby patterns on this page along with my recommendations for a few really good baby knitting pattern books. Some are free - some are not, but they may be worth investing in any way!

The sole has a fold that can be a bit tricky so I have videoed a demonstration so that you can see how it is done.
