I am finally going to cast this on for a baby shower in November!

I have a feeling there will be changes to the pattern as I go, the needle size, to start with…2mm? No way! 2.25mm at least. Maybe 2.5mm…

Mods: The body was getting too long, so I only increased the crotch to 7 stitches, then bound off 9+9 before starting legs. I did not put the stitches on waste yarn, and I will just seam the crotch…

For the same reason, I will work the first set of leg decreases every 5 rounds. Also, one plain knit row between last two-three regular decrease rows of leg…

On feet, work 32 rounds after heel turn, starting 2x2 on top of foot at round 13.

Finished! I sewed buttons on this morning, and I’m done! I have several baby things that will need a wash before gifting, so I am putting this into that pile, and I’ll take care of them all when I get there! Yay!
