Braided Tie Booties

Braided Tie Booties, originally uploaded by choppedtomatoes.
Photo note:

"I bought a HUGE cone of teal cotton from Cancer Research Wales a while back, and 3 very time-consuming dishcloths later (with hardly a dent in the cone must I add), I had put it away in the cupboard and didn't want to look at it again! When my sister came to visit she brought along some of her yarn, and I 'inherited' a few balls of dark brown soft cotton... I loved the contrast between the two colours so I decided to knit them both together for these booties.

To fit baby of 0-3 months

1 colour double knitting weight yarn
1 fingering/baby weight yarn in a contrasting colour
1 pair of 3mm needles

20sts and 30 rows = 10cm square over stockinette (stocking) stitch using 3mm needles
k = knit
k2tog = knit the next 2 stitches together
m1 = make stitch by picking up yarn before next stitch and knitting into the back of made loop
p = purl
p2tog = purl next 2 stitches together
sl = slip next stitch
yo = yarn around needle
