I cannot tell what the stitch looks like in the picture. I'm looking for a more interesting stitch pattern.

Hi I'm new to this forum. Can someone point me in the direction of a pattern for knitted ugg bootees, for a baby, thanks x

I love this blanket! I've looked at it a couple of times, and I think I'll make if for my nieces new baby. But, first I'll have to find out the sex first. Thanks for all the great free patterns and tutorials.
