Baby Cowboy Booties

You may have seen several of my posts have a theme to them–and that is baby! We are getting ready for the arrival of my sister’s first baby, and I’ve been knitting and crocheting up a storm in preparation. Today’s entry is no different. I saw these Baby Cowboy Booties on Pinterest. At first, many of the options were paid. Since I don’t have much money coming in, I of course looked for a free option. It took a while, but with a little patience I found it for free (at the link already provided). I had a little issue understanding certain parts of the pattern, so it took me months after finding the pattern to even begin working on it. It wasn’t until I was browsing Moogly blog *I love Moogly blog!* that I found a full video tutorial of the same cowboy booties I was trying to make. I was so happy, and I knew my sister would be too when I completed making them. (She saw the Pin that I shared on Pinterest, and requested that I make them, if I can).

The pattern was relatively simple, once I got a few things figured out. I miscounted somehow and they aren’t as straight as they should be around the top, but next time I will hopefully do a little better. I used Bernat’s Handicrafter Cotton, and they were larger than I was expecting them to be–but ultimately that doesn’t matter, he’ll grow into them eventually! Now that I know the process, I can always try to make them a little smaller!

Here are some finished product pictures:

I decided to make a star for the sides of it instead, and I think they turned out well. I also just put them on one side each to differentiate between right and left booty (not that it really matters with the pattern.) Can’t wait to see my little nephew crawling/walking around in these!
