Cowichan isn't a weight, look for patterns for bulky weight, or maybe aran. Is there a needle size on the label? That's often a clue as to what thickness the yarn is.

I've never done booties, though I'm dong the Ugg booties as slippers for my 3 yo GD. Unfortunately, she's taken down the English version recently and they weren't a heavy weight yarn anyway.

Worsted weight is a 4, bulky a 5, and superbulky a 6. Look for those numbers on the label. You can look for a baby bootie pattern on Ravelry. Insert baby booties in the pattern search box. You can narrow it down by selecting patterns for bulky weights in the sections on the left. You have to sign up for Ravelry, but it's free to join.
