These Mary Jane Baby Booties free knitting patterns are very easy and basic patterns for beginners. The patterns are described in two methods. The first one is working flat and seaming wrong side together. The other one is less seaming and knit in the round. You can choose what you preferred. Both patterns are available for newborn-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-12 months sizes. It doesn't take a long time to knit and also a perfect gift for your love one or baby shower. I also provided How to knit detailed videos for beginners.

        Doing the largest size: On row 20, bind off row, you have to bind off 20 sets in order to have 13 on each side... 13 + 20 (bound off) + 13 = 46
