It's a special cast on for toe up socks...there are are several, but I much prefer the Turkish Cast-on

I can't link to YouTube with my iPad so if you want to look there I know there are a few videos.

Here's another. It's not better IMO, but it is the way I learned first.Judy's Magic Cast On (Starting Toe Up Socks) I do something different because I don't have any stitches sitting the wrong way.
I've also used the Figure 8 Cast On.

There are others. Do you have a particular pattern in mind?

ETA Since Jan can't link to youtube right now, here are some Turkish Cast On videos for you.

I found a pattern for baby booties... but I don't know where they were and the pattern was simply infuriating... i'm trying to find a simple in the round baby bootie pattern I can do magic loop... I love magic loop!

It sounds like basic socks would be your best bet. Ravelry has a lot of free patterns. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sear...=best&fit=baby
