I wouldn't say this was the easiest pattern for a beginner, I am an experienced knitter and I did get in a bit of a muddle after the rib rows it says to Dec 2 sets evenly across last row, I wasn't sure whether to decrease at both ends or in the middle, I opted for one at the start and one halfway which seems to look ok. I also struggled with picking up stitches along the ends of the rows and it would be useful to have a link or picture to show what it looks like at this stage. However, once I had completed one bootee I found it much easier to do the second one. I would suggest for a beginner to k it it in one colour first to get used to the stitches and shape before knitting in different colours.
