Its all about the buttonloops

P4260580

I whipped up these bootees quickly as a raffle contribution for a Cloth Nappy Information Expo I helped out at over the weekend. I had the cute car buttons in my stash just waiting for a cute pair of bootees to adorn. The yarn is Spotlights Basic Merino which was nice to knit but very thin and I think, more like a 4 or 5ply weight. I actually bought it with the intention of using it as a sub for Baby Cashmerino which is a 5-ish ply weight so I think it will be great for that.
The pattern is , of course, Saartjes Bootees by Saartje

I found instructions for the buttonloops here

They give the bootees a lovely finish and I totally recommend you try these buttonholes if you're making these cute bootees
