On To The Booties
I've also designed and knit a coordinating hat. It's based on the bonnet pattern included in the Beehive layette directions, but in an updated, cordless style as per safety recommendations.
"Drawstrings or cords on children’s clothing should be removed. Children can strangle when drawstrings and cords get caught around their neck or on other objects."
I haven't yet knit the booties. They too could use a bit of redesigning. They have the traditional tie-cords around the ankles. I plan to revise them to be more like a sock, with a ribbed band hidden under a lace fold-over cuff that matches the sweater. I'll let you know how it goes.
