These are the easiest baby booties ever! They knit up quickly and you can change the pattern from garter to stocking stitch or moss stitch. You can also sew the tops together rather than have fold over bits. If you master this pattern you will have a good understanding of how booties are made and then you can adventure out with your own ideas. Allfreeknitting is a really good site to find patterns which work and which you can develop your confidence with.
