I started playing around with my Crochet Rain Boots pattern and adapted it into these cute little cuffed booties! Enjoy the the pattern and be sure to follow my instructions on where to start, end and join your rounds since it is different than the rain boots pattern!
Always begin your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.
In rounds 2-5 you will end your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. So technically you will be adding an extra stitch to each round. I have found that this helps keep the heal flatter.
Update 10-26-12: A video tutorial for rounds 1-7 is now available on my YouTube channel. I am only allowed to upload 15 minute videos at a time so this all I have so far... but I think it will help a lot of you out!
