would love some advice on how to make the ties for the baby blue bootie's. This particular yarn *bernat baby coordinates frays easily and when I try to make the ties the ends just come apart. Wondering if they even need ties. - I don't care for ties, personally.

If anyone wants the pattern to any of these, message me!

I would just crochet a chain with a plain white yarn in a similar weight or possibly use a ribbon. Sometimes, though, you can get a nice effect from easily-fraying yarn by making a knot near each end and leaving an inch or so of yarn beyond the knot loose to fray as it will. I hope that makes sense. Baby things are fun to knit.

Oh, I love baby knits  Grin your pink hat is especially sweet.
