I am sooo pleased with how these came out – I almost can’t bear to give them away. But I also can’t wait to see the little peapod modeling them (granted, it will probably be another year or two before she fits into any of this).
I love the bootie pattern, but it was a little tricky. Not the knitting so much, but the finishing! I had read that other people cast on a few extra stitches and then knit in buttonholes at the end of the straps, but I couldn’t figure out how to do this, so I just looped up some yarn and wove in the ends. Not sure how sturdy they’ll be, but booties are probably more for show than anything.
(Another bootie mod: I cast on an extra stitch for the straps and then k2tog to cinch up the gap where the strap started.)
