Backless bootie pattern for preemies? Anyone?
Hi everybody,

I posted a few weeks ago looking for info on a santa hat pattern for a preemie. It turned out beautifully and the baby was born at over 3lbs. I am still waiting for a picture and hope to post it.

I am on bed rest with a strong chance of a preemie myself. It is time to start knitting for the baby. After making so many blankets for others it is really exciting.

I saw a crochet pattern a while back for a croched backless baby bootie. Apparently the NICU staff prefers these becasue they put sensors on the babies heels. I can not find the pattern again.

Does anyone have a pattern for a knitted backless baby bootie? Our baby is probably a little over a lb now. My plan it to donate whatever our baby outgrows which I hope will be everything I knit up to 7 lbs!

I am also looking for the perfect stay on baby bootie (not sock style) pattern.

Thanks so much,

Jen

I'm not finding anything like that. Here's some links to go through for lots of preemie things though.

Thanks Jan,

I thought this is where I saw the pattern originally but it wasn't. It is kind of driving me crazy. I will keep looking. Thanks for helping.

ok, i am new here and very new to knitting, i am a crocheter. but, i do make my own patterns for crochet. why cant u make a basic bootie pattern where u have to stitch up the seams? instead of stitching up the seams along the back, stitch small pieces of ribbon for tying closed if someone wishes to tie them. (one near the ankle and one higher up would do). or they can leave open. just a thought.
