The shoes look so adorable! I would like to try making one, and maybe i can make it even more personalized by knitting my baby’s name too. I particularly love the blue one with straps.


I am currently attempting to knit the Jaden baby booties,size 12 months, and I do not understand how the blue marker is placed. When I count 16 rows I end up in the very center of the cuff instead of the back where I am suppose to be. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
