Plaid Cuff Baby Booties – Size 3-6 months

Wow! The interest and support for these baby booties has been unreal. I started this blog in hopes that some of my posts and patterns might become popular, but this has been overwhelming! 

I have been working hard to get some more sizes out for you guys, but chasing around a teething toddler while 30 weeks pregnant has delayed me slightly.  It seems that every time I sit down to work on the patterns, life gets in the way.  I can’t believe that it is just going to get more chaotic when our little man arrives in April.  My goal is to learn how to breastfeed and crochet at the same time, so wish me luck with that one!

I am new to this whole pattern design game.  Up until just a couple months ago, I had never even attempted to write my own pattern.  So creating extra sizes was a bit of a challenge for me, and it proved to be quite difficult.  I can only hope that my pattern writing skills improve very soon so that I can get new designs out for you guys faster! 

So for now, I only have one more size for you. I thought it would be better to at least get this size posted before the others are finished.  This way you have a bit of proof that I am following through on my promise to provide other sizes! I will try to have 6-9 months and 9-12 months ready by the end of this week. I will also do my best to get toddler and women’s sizes out as soon as possible.
