From Interweave Knits website:

"Designer Gryphon Perkins modeled these baby booties on a favorite pair of suede boots. A frequenter of reenactments and Renaissance fairs, Gryphon loves to find fun ways to bring back historical fashions. Here, she offers three styles, each of which comes in three sizes, from newborn to crawler. These booties make a great surface for embellishment, so consider adding a little bright embroidery."

Errata for Serf Booties:

In the smallest size, 3.75”, when knitting the upper and shaping the toe, the instructions say “Row 1: (RS) Sl 1, k9, ssk, turn. Row 2: (WS) Sl 1, p9 p2tog, turn.” Both those 9s should be 8s.

In the medium size 4”, while working the sole, the instructions say to “Cont in this manner,…until there are 68 sts.” This should read 70 sts.
