What materials did you use? different yarns, some I already had, other I bought

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not really an advice, but so you know... This is my second and third pair of booties I made (same pattern, different yarn and colors) The pink and white one is made with must smaller yarn, so I used the two color at once and I made the 6 to 12 months size one. I had to add some rows in the body part so it was the same height. The result with this size of yarn is a much smaller bootie, even if I used the 6 to 12 months pattern. It is the good size for a newborn baby. The multi-color one is a 0 to 6 month pattern with regular yarn.

They are all very lovely. I think my favorite is this multi=variegated colored yarn and wondering then from your comments if we can make the booties then with baby yarn (Dk weight). I don't have any fingering yarn. I only have baby #3 weight yarn and #4 weight yarns in medium weight like Caron's Simply soft. Lots of Bernat Softee yarn and other yarns that are all in the #3 baby yarn weight. So just wondering if this is o.k. and what size to select.?

Hi! I'm not sure which one is your favorite between the one in pink-blue-yellow with yellow button or the one in coulors shading off into one another with blue button... In any case, you can do the pattern with #1, #3 or #4 weight yarn... The pink-blue-yellow with yellow button is a #3 yarn with a 3.5mm hook if I remember well... The one in coulors shading off into one another with blue button is a #1 yarn and I used a 3mm hook. You can use the yarn you want, you just have to ajust the hook size with it and it will give you a bigger or smaller bootie size. If you have some more questions, don't hesitate! :)
