This little knitting pattern is probably one of the most popular all time knitting patterns. Knit sideways, the free pattern for BSJ look-alike is available in sizes 1/3 - 6/9 - 12/18 months (2 - 3/4 - 5/6) years. Link below.

Stay-on Fair Isle baby booties

These baby booties or baby socks are just the cutest free pattern from Classic Elite by Edith Murphy. Knit on a size US 6 (4.25 mm) needle, the pattern is a sweet find and a free download. Gauge is 22 sts = 1 inch, so they'll be finished in no time at all. The booties require 50 g of DK yarn and bits and pieces of stash yarn for the three other colors. So cute and useful for baby gifts. One size = 4 inches or 6 months.
