baby booties
I am a little confused about the baby booties I am making.It says to rejoin the yarn where you cast off and then add 12 stitches. If I cast on 12 more stiches, the hole I made by casting off will disappear. Am I doing something wrong?http://www.thehomemademama.co.uk/1/p...u-to-knit.html

Are you at the end of the pattern? I think that's just for the strap?

Thanks I figured it out- my only issue now is... how do I make my button hole bigger? The button I chose is too big to fit the hole that the pattern allots for it! All in all, I'm pretty impreseed with myself- the booties have turned out beautiful (or at the least the left one has!)

How much bigger is the button? If its a little too big it may be fine. Knitting stretches a lot and eventually buttons tend to not want to stay in the hole.

The button seems to be a lot bigger- maybe could I just use extra yarn in my yarn over?

Hmm... Maybe try wrapping the yarn twice around the needle to make it bigger. Or you could just do a regular buttonhole, but make it a two stitch one. That's what I'd probably try.

Yeah, you could do a double yo and drop one of the loops off the needle. Or if you want - do a ssk yo2 and k2tog, then on the next row work into both loops of the double yo. You would have to do that as k1 p1 to keep the 2 sts.
