I chose Madder’s Lovebug Booties pattern by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I thought they were beyond cute. I ordered the Chickadee yarn from Quince & Company in the colors noted in the pattern.
I knit the first bootie and found the striping to be a bit challenging. Getting the stripes to line up in the round was difficult. I searched and found several tips on YouTube, but the stripes were still a bit fussier than I expected.
The photographs in the pattern show the second bootie in a contrasting color combination, but when I started on the second bootie I forgot to switch the colors. Bummer.
So the booties I made are the same colorway and are just as cute.
I stuffed them with fiberfill, so they would stay in perfect shape.
Here is the new little guy sporting his new baby booties. I love that his mama dressed him in orange for the photo!
Looks like they fit ok and he is absolutely adorable…
