So Happy that I found this pattern! I have used another pattern for baby booties, but they wouldn't stay on the little feet, so I would have to just rig something up with a piece of yarn to hold them closed, which made them look 'thrown together'. This pattern is so cute and look like they should on baby feet without any struggle!! I cant wait to try this pattern for an upcoming project. I have lots of expecting mommy friends that I am sure would love a pair of booties for their little ones.

Is there a pattern for adult sizes?

When it says Finishing I'm having problems after that. Please explain. Cast on edge from there on I'm having trouble. Please help. Thanks

I'm a beginner in this, I've try to make it but doesn't look same as the picture.

Could you tell me the changes needed to make these booties for a 12-month size?

@lcj638 7490768, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: --Editors of FaveCrafts

can you please explain the seed stitch. After I k1,p1 across the first row, do I pearl the first stitch in the second row, or do I knit the first stitch in the second row. Thank you for your help

to lcj638 7490768 The seed stitch is K1 P1 on the first row and on the second row, where you knitted you knit again where you purled you purl again. It is as if ;you were trying to make a rib and you goofed. It is simple and the results are pleasant. Hope this helps.

the following rows are purl the knit and knit the purls as you look at the stitch. so if you last stitch in the row is a purl when you turn to go back , .the first stitch will be a purl

Absolutely would make! Much rather knit than crochet booties. Bernat also has a very nice pattern for knit booties.
