I've been searching for bootie patterns using worsted weight yarn. I found only 3 and they're a little boring. :pout:

I'd like to use worsted because it'll match the little hat I already finished.

Any ideas, suggestions, favorite patterns? I'm sure one of you fabulous and prolific knitters has a recommendation.

Not sure what you consider boring, but I found these on Ravelry -

Not boring at all... I especially liked the first two and the last one... cute mini-Chucks!

Glad you liked them! I am making the Converse Booties along with a "baseball" jacket type pattern for my daughter's friend's baby.

Who's Chuck? I saw reference to that, but had no idea. :shrug:

Charles "Chuck" Taylor was the basketball player who was the original spokesman for the Converse All-Star shoes. (http://sneakers.pair.com/taylor.htm) His signature is on the high-top ones on the logo (http://sneakers.pair.com/chucks.htm).

I always called them "Converse tennys", but my teaching partner is from Boston and she calls them "Chucks". After 7 years of teaching together every day--even though I'm born and raised in California--sometimes "my Boston" comes out.. lol

So I ended up making these: http://www.adhdknitting.com/freepatterns/13.pdf

No pics because I already gave them to my brother and sister-in-law. Very simple and cute. I decided not to adorn them, but will make some cute little flowers if the baby is a girl. They've decided to be surprised... we all will be!

This pattern is supposed to look like ruby slippers (http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/pdf/goodbyeyellowbrickroad.pdf). Super cute for a little girl, but as the newest member of my family is--as yet--gender unknown, I'll have to wait.

Next time!
