  1. What a DARLING pattern! Could you give suggestions about how to expand the pattern for perhaps 3-6 mo., 6-9 mo., and 9 mo.-1 yr.? Also, is your yarn worsted weight? If so, could a chunkier yarn be used to make a size larger? Thank you for donating this wonderful pattern to all of us! (Also, I love the Crafty Corner background design - gorgeous!)

  2. I know you posted this awhile ago but I really like this pattern and was wondering if it would be ok to sell these booties at a Christmas craft fair. Thank you.
