This is another pattern winner in the great bootie experiment - I found it here on the hipknitized blog. A more moccasin style slipper that looks to be ideal for the 6-12 month old.
The first pair I tried in a simple colour and just added some buttons I had on hand for embellishment. I like this concept and I've ordered some lovely baby buttons - teddy bears, sailer anchors, cats, ducks, hearts, polka dots, stripes and etc. It should be fun and inspirational when they start arriving.
This is a variation I think is rather cute - inspired by a bit of a running shoe look. You could do narrow stripes, 3 or 4 colour options, full stripes or etc. I have been experimenting - in the form of single edition booties - with quite a few variations, but this is one of my favourite so far.
I love simple patterns like this that allow you to get really creative with variations in execution. I'm thinking the kitty cat buttons would look really cute on that red and cream stripe ... and maybe white bunnies for the pink jacquard. The slipper in the middle I thought I'd really like ... but it turns out I don't. You don't know until you try.
