"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

The photo doesn't do them justice either. They look much nicer than that and they can also be made with a single cuff although that won't make them as tight around the baby's legs

These are just a basic sock pattern in a tiny size written in a style for double pointed needles. Not a beginner's pattern but would be a great first pattern for a beginner to make a sock as they only take an hour

Easy? No way. If I am an experienced knitter and I cannot fathom the instructions out, then how can beginners. Note, it is not you beginners it is the useless instructions

Just follow the instructions step by step for each needle. You have to always know what needle you're knitting on. So for the instructions for gusset needle 2 for example, using new needle in your right hand knit 5 stitches from needle 2, then k2tog for the last 2 stitches (needle 2 starts with 7 stitches on it), then start knitting the stitches from needle 3 onto the same right hand needle. From needle 3 which also has 7 stitches, start with SSK for first 2 stitches, then knit the 5 other stitches all onto the same right hand needle which becomes needle 2 and at the end of the instruction will have a total of 12 stitches on it.
