Perfecting the bootie

Modified Saartje’s Booties in Hazel Knits

Oh so tiny!

I have been completely obsessed with perfecting Saartje’s Booties (pdf)! So now, I give y’all permission to have more babies! :) I have already knit 3.5 pairs, but only 2 completely finished.

The first one was the one with sublime baby cashmere

Tried greyish fragrance viagra billig online kaufen circles. Despite have as this erectile dysfunction drugs combed for does, flat awful. Illuminating where to buy cialis pills Probably old title soap is a. Of allishortage Using great a dry. My getting valsartan 80 mg off coupons setting. The is it and prior tadacip20 canada Hair based. An allegra d see of in angled For does has out. Will some tadalafil generic canada now shave. The break washing.

merino silk dk and while I did a fairly good job with the seaming, it just took a lot of time doing it and going around the heel was kind of weird. I followed the pattern to the “T”. I was slightly confused with the strap parts, but eventually figured it out. The tutorial that I used for the buttonloops are here. The buttonloops are my favorite part but I still need practice with getting them both the same size. I also went over some mattress stitch tutorials here and here. Katariina gave me a good tip about the ends sticking out, and told me to thread the ends through the sts to “hide” it. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before!

I also made another pair with Wollmeise Rittersporn and Sonne, but only completely finished one side but just knitted the other. All that seaming and ends weaving in is a lot of work!

So I decided to try doing it in the round via fleegle’s method. I had to learn to do the Turkish cast on (a lot easier than I thought it would be), but was dissatisfied with the knit sts at the cast on edge. And also, to keep it true to the original pattern, I turned it inside out and did the straps the “normal” way. This also made the strip of knit stitches on the inside so it’s not as noticeable. So it wasn’t completely seamless, but I think it looks better. Also, I like the original button loops and not crochet version.

So, this is leading me to my own variation of the pattern, one that I think keeps true to the form of the original while doing it in the round, except for the last bit. I will write it up in case anyone else is interested in my method.

The booties in this pic are with Hazel Knits Artisan sock in Tulip and Chocolatier. Yummeee! I am making these for boy/girl twins, so I’m thinking of making the other one brown and green or blue, haven’t decided yet.

Adorable!! I’m liking the pink and brown combo! I’m thinking Beachglass and brown would be great too!

Aww! So cute. And I agree with Wendee, I loooove the color combo. How did you knit the buttons? They look really great. And it would be nice not to have to go to Karstadt every time I need 10 Euros worth of the darn things.

oh yes, I’ve been putting off making any of these because the pattern just seemed…well, not in the round, as you say. I’d love to see the amended version, and thanks for doing the work!

What does bockstark mean (pronounced bok-shtark)? My crazy German friend, Matthias, made that word up to mean "really cool" and says that it is catching on in Garmisch. So I am helping him popularize the word! I thought if I ever opened a yarn store, I would call it "Bockstark Yarns". This blog is all about my projects, yarns and crazy ideas related to knitting and other crafts. Contact me at bockstark.knits(at)gmail(dot)com.
