Our local knitting club has been making preemie baby booties. One member gave us this link http://www.bbc.co.uk/stoke/my_pages/babywear/mkp/016.shtml  It makes a very fast baby bootie and does not require a ribber. (First photo) There is one turn with a garter bar, but it is an easy turn since it is so few stitches.  I found that sewing them up on the sewing machine was much easier than sewing by hand. But, another member, Marcille Bosveld, wrote another pattern for preemie baby booties and I think it is a great pattern. (second photo) I, with her permission, made a few changes to help me understand the instructions a little easier before I published it here on the blog. I encourage you to give it a try and make some up for your local baby charity. You will find the pattern above the blog title and it only takes little dabs of leftover yarn to make a pair.  🙂
