Any tips on the button loops for the Saartje booties?  I tried to just crochet a chain (about as far as my crochet skill currently go), but it doesn't look nearly as neat as the others I've seen.  Does anyone know of a good method whether knit or crocheted?

I made the loops on the ones I made by stitching 2 loops of yarn the same size I wanted the buttonloop to be and then using the remaining yarn to do a sort of blanket stitch over the 2 loops together.....

There is a tutorial here

Thanks for this tutorial... I had just done a yo, k2tog on the strap, which turned out a bit short.  I was going to cast on a few extra stitches on the strap to accommodate that, but now I don't have to!
