The Pattern is Little Button Loafers from Sylver Designs on etsy. I don’t know what it is about this pattern that makes it so cute, maybe it’s the tiny size or the color possibilities, but it is just adorable.
I still need some little red buttons, but we have be hit by a large snow storm and I’m not leaving the house until the roads get a little better (hopefully tomorrow). They work up pretty fast, I had some trouble working the pattern, but it was all my fault. I am not a crochet expert and I was trying to keep my kids entertained and count stitches at the same time, it just didn’t work.
The pattern is well written and there are several pictures to help you along. There are four different sizes to make from newborn to 9 months and I’m sure you could make them even bigger by adjusting gauge. I like that the heel of the bootie is contoured, I think that they will stay on better. The pattern is for personal use, but there is a cottage license available from the seller if you would like to make booties to sell, which I am considering.
They are even adorable without their button on tab, wouldn’t a little red bow or ladybug button just finish these off. I will be making a ton of these for gifts, now I just need to find the perfect hat pattern to match.
