When I saw these baby booties I just had to make these for my new grandson, and so I did.
The pattern said to use size 3 needles, but I had to use size 4. I knitted these on double pointed needle all the way through, even for the straight knitting back and forth because it was just easier.
I use Herrschners Sport Weight yarn in Light Beige and the brown yarn was something that has been in my stash.
The pattern is on Raverly for $3.50: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/combat-booties
I found the pattern to be confusing when it came time to switch from flat knitting and knitting in the round to knit the foot. I finally figured it out. I think that there might be a typo where it says to work on the center 9 sts, then P 18 turn, it should say to continue working stockinette on the center 9 sts for 12 rows. Other than that that, the pattern was OK, but I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner knitter. My previous sock knitting experience helped me a lot. I crocheted the shoe laces. I did approx. 3 ft. of single crochet.
Now to CO another project!
