Hello,

I love this pattern . I found it raverly .com. I have a question in the pattern like rows 2 it say k1 14 than knit 20 , that is repeated .I see I don't have enough cast on to follower that pattern. I did check your video where you omit the knit 14 is there an updated pattern fix for this

Hi Kim, Thanks for loving the pattern, this pattern is written for 2 sizes, 0-6 months and 6-12 months. K14 is for 0-6 month and K20 is for 6-12 months. You don't need to repeat it. This method is the same for every other parentheses.

Cute pattern but there is no mention in right boot knitting instructions about making buttonholes. I only discovered the need to do that when knitting the second boot. Also did you really mean for us to purl all rows in left boot?
