At the end of row 1 it says 37 sts. Does that mean I knit 37 stitches or is that telling me how many stitches I should have?

The numbers beyond a period in a knitting pattern are telling you how many stitches you should have in a row, this si pretty standard in knitting.

Soft baby bootees

While these are very pretty booties I don;t know what kind of designer would think of putting buittons on baby things. These are a disaster made to happen. Baby grabs button and pulls it off puts it in the mouth and choking is a serious result. You are waiting to be sued witht his one. Could you not put a little flower instead of a button??

Hi dfitz 2297783, Great point! A tiny flower applique would be a lovely alternative. Happy Knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
