free knitting pattern for baby booties with buttons

There are a lot of cute knitted baby booties out there, but I wanted these booties to look like actual shoes – with t-strap and low cuff. Adding those details makes this pattern a bit more challenging with picking up stitches in the middle of work and buttonholes. though But it’s not impossible and you can totally replace it with sewing.

Perfect weekend project, and who doesn’t like knitted baby shower gifts (especially when you made it) 🙂

Pattern is for 0 to 3 month-old baby
