Booties Go Bragh Pattern!

Alright, my Irish heritage coupled with the fact that my best friend is due with her 2nd son on St. Patrick’s day, has me on 11 when it comes to shamrock inspired design. These babies knit up in an evening so start now, and your wee laddy or lass will be doing a jig, just in time! xoxo, Vickie

    Thanks, Vicki! I’ll keep this one in the wait until my little Irish guy and his bride give me a new little one.

    And in keeping with the day: “May you be in heaven an hour before the Devil knows you’re dead.”

    Just thought you should know that it should actually be WesTley and Buttercup. Just check the book, or the movie credits. Thanks!

    I wonder when someone will knit a pair of ghillies. I suppose one could just add some suede to the bottom, and a heel for the boys… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You could always make these and any other booties for your local hospital. They will welcome them with open arms. I know!

    Vicki,
    My family’s babies are all too big for a 0-6 month size, but I love this pattern. Do you have a version of it in a bigger size?
