Here is my favourite bootie pattern, so I won't misplace it in the real world! hehehe!!! It was over on my personal blog, but suits life better here!
Cast on 34 stitches and knit 12 rows.
On the next row, knit 20 stitches, knit 2 together and then turn.
*Slip a stitch (with yarn in front), purl 6, purl 2 together then turn.
Slip a stitch (with yarn in back), knit 6, knit 2 together then turn.*
Do the above set 8 more times, so you knit back and forth on those centre 6 stitches, picking up 2 together on either end, for approx 10 rows, or until you have 24 stitches on your needles. (take a count each row to make sure)
On the last one, knit to the end of the row.
Create an eyelet row for ties: Purl first two stitches, yo, knit 2 together until the end of the row.
Now, knit 20 rows to make the rollover cuff. Cast off.
Stitch the bootie from toe to cuff and turn the right way.
Add ribbon, crocheted yarn or knitted yarn for ties.
