These Baby Moccasins are just the most adorable things. I used the pattern from The Purl Bee for Whit's Knits Baby Mocs, with a few changes. First, I used the yarn I had left over from the Drops Baby Cardigan that I finished a while ago, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. I used the color 'fisherman' for the body of the moc and 'blossom' for the accent color. I bought a bunch of the blossom for a blanket that I haven't started yet. Since the wool yarn is much thicker than the pattern calls for, I used my size #8 dpns to knit with (this yarn actually calls for a #13, but the pattern is written on #2 and #4). You can see where the gauge would be severely off.
In case you're interested in doing it my way, with a 4 stitch gauge instead of a 6 stitch gauge, e-mail me for the changes I made to the Purl Bee's pattern.
