You've all probably seen these before, but they're so adorable that I had to share. These are from the pattern on DIY from Knitty Gritty.

Oh my gosh, those are just precious! I love the color you chose. What is the yarn, please?

They are just darling - I love them! You really did a great job.

I used the suggested yarn from the pattern - Berroco suede and plush.

Coincidentally I just finished a pair for my granddaughter. But now I am wondering how they are going to stay on - do yours seems kind of loose too? I also used the suede and plush recommended in the pattern.

They do seem quite loose. I think I'm going to knit a lining out of the plush yarn and sew it in -- that should make them warmer and help them to stay on so they'll actually be functional instead of just adorable.

I have always loved that pattern and think it is adorable. You did a spot on job with them.

They look adorable PugMom! I've had them in my list to make for my niece. I'm planning to start it sometime soon. I also planned to make a lining out of the plush so they'll be nice and toasty.
Did you have plenty of yarn left over to make a second pair? I'm curious because if I do, I plan to make them for a co-worker.

There is definitely enough yarn left to make a second pair. I haven't done the linings yet, but you use so little of the plush on the booties, that I'm almost positive that there will be plenty to make linings for 2 pairs.

Awwwww, they're so adorable!! I've never been a big fan of Uggs on people, but this baby version is too cute for words. Great job on them :woot:

Really adorable! I have always thought little Uggs were cute, but had almost forgotten about them. Thanks for showing these and reminding me. ;)

The kicking off question is a real one. How are you ladies thinking of making the lining part so they will stay on? Like another bootie? Will it be sewn to this one? Some other way? :?? It sounds like a good idea. When you make something for someone you want them to work and not just be decorations. :pray:

i love these and am getting ready to make a pair for my niece's new baby. Question though...when it says:

K1, yf, K11...

is the yf the same as a yo?

mimi

Yes, the yf is the same yas yo. And here is a hint: keep close track of your rows. I didn't, and wound up frogging one entire bootie because it was so misshapen. It is a fun pattern to knit!

PugMom, have you tried the matching cap? I cast on with the same yarn and needles as the booties, but the cap is so HUGE that it would fit my husband. So I temporarily abandoned the project, but it is still calling my name . . .

I was planning on trying the hat this weekend, but I prefer to knit in the round, so I think I'll end up just working it in the round -- thanks for the tip, because I probably will need to look into what this hat should measure before I get into it -- definitely would prefer it to fit a baby!!

For this first pair, I ended up just knitting tubes last night and I plan to sew them to the top. For future pairs, I think I will just continue working with the plush until it's the right length. I definitely want them to be functional instead of just adorable.

The gal at my LYS said to be sure to check gauge because people were finding that they had to go down a needle size or two to get correct gauge with the suede.

Thanks pugmom. :)

As far as the babies kicking them off, it was actually my husband (!) who suggested I "knit a string" which I think he means a tiny i-cord, to tie around it, but that would ruin the look of the booties, so I think the lining would be better, and as far as that goes, it would just be trial and error until it fits.

Thank you PugMom for the reply. So I guess I will whipping out 2 pairs with my yarn.

I plan to do the lining just as PugMom had suggested which is to just continue knitting in the plush as a tube and attaching it to the bootie.

KT120 - I'd love to know how it works out for you.

I've always loved that pattern. you did a fabu job. did you find it pretty easy to follow? my best friend is having a baby and i would love to make her a pair and these would be the first booties i'd ever make. how long did it take?

PugMom

This pattern was really easy to follow and would be easy for even a beginner. The pattern takes you row by row, so I think you can just jump right in and try them! I'd guess that the pair took about 4-5 hours? I'm sure they'll get faster with each pair too.

Thanks for posting the large photos. I just started these last night and the photo in the pattern is very small, so yours will be very helpful.
I hope you'll post another photo when you finish the plush lining.
