Plaid Cuff Baby Booties – Size 6-9 and 9-12 months

Time to get a couple more sizes out for you guys. I hope you all have been enjoying your newborn and 3-6 month sizes. I would love to see some of your finished products! Tag me in your projects on Instagram and Facebook.

I found the best way to obtain these sizes was to jump up to a 4.0mm hook.  The nice thing about using this size hook is it works up so much faster.  The 3.5mm hook makes a nice tight stitch for the smaller sizes, but it is a bit slow going.

 

As we get into these larger sizes, just a reminder that the soles are pretty slippery.  So, if you are making these for walking babies, ensure you take measures to make the soles non slip.  I found this link from Moogly with several great ways to make your booties non slip. Otherwise, take precautions to keep your little mover safe while wearing them (ie. in car seats, photo shoots, or on carpeted surfaces only).

I will do my best to get toddler, child and adult sizes out as soon as I can! For now, please subscribe to the blog at the very bottom of the page to make sure you don’t miss out on a single free pattern.
