Would you be willing to make a video on YouTube? I would really love to make these but having a hard time with the pattern?

Lisa Auch said...

I am considering you tube videos but not at this time sorry :)

Thank you SO MUCH! Now I feel super dumb! I turned on toe and was crocheting on the inside instead of outside!!!! Thank you for your time once again. :-)))

Thanks for sharing your talent free. I know I will be making my grandson a bunch of these he will be born in about 8 weeks and live in a home with animals so keeping hair from between and around his toes will be very important!

hi im just wondering if this pattern is in US or UK terminology, i made an assumption that its US terminology, however when i compare my bootie to the diagrams it seems far too long. thank you

Lisa Auch said...

US terminology used (The boots are worked in the round after you have made the cuff)

What changes for newborn size? How long is the foot portion?
