Saartje’s Bootees

Saartje's Bootees

I was on a mission to use up all the purple Lion Brand Cotton yarn from the EZ February Sweater and whipped up these Saartje’s Booties. They’re unbelievably tiny and hopefully fit a newborn!

The soles were made flat and then I joined it to make in the round to avoid having many ends to weave in for the straps. It made it so much easier to finish! Basically I just CO for one side, worked the 20 or so on the needles and CO for the other side.

I also took the advice of one Ravelry member and used this technique for the button holes. It feel it gives it a finished look. Although it can be hard to get the button holes to match in size. I wish I had better buttons but these in my stash fit perfectly and I didn’t want to detract from the cuteness of the booties.

After finishing these I can see why there are almost 1500 of these listed as FO’s on Ravelry! I’m sure I’ll be adding to that number. These are definitely great for a quick and easy baby gift.

Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton and Sugar’n Cream
Needles: Size 3 dpn’s.
Pattern: Saartje’s Booties
