Baby Booties with Ribbed Cuff - a Free Crochet Pattern Review

Hi dear crochet friends,
I took a long break from crochet and blogging because of health issues. I'm finally feeling a bit better and wanted to win back the joy of crocheting by making something small and cute.
I have decided for these baby booties, a free crochet pattern by Bernat Design Studio found on Yarnspirations.


I have really enjoyed working them!

The construction of the booties was quite unusual for me. All the booties I have made before were worked either toe-up or started with the soles.
These booties are started at the ribbed cuff, continued with the instep, then the sides, followed by the sole at the end. 

 I have used a local cotton yarn (approx. 50 g total) and a 4 mm crochet hook and the booties are measuring 9 cm from toe to heel. 

In the original pattern, the ribbed cuff it’s worked using one solid color, in pretty pastels.
I hope you will like my variation also. :)
Working the cuff in 2 colors, made it easier for me to count the rows. Each stripe is made of 2 rows, I have made 6 green and 6 pink stripes as shown below. (The first stripe, the green one, is made of foundation chain and one row of sc.)
