If that is a newborn bootie how did the human race last this long?

It's for a newborn Sasquatch or Yeti, of course....

Got to watch the yarn and needle size on patterns.

Yeah, needle size and yarn makes a huge difference in patterns. What pattern did you use and what yarn?

Hmmm... It looks like you knit too many rows maybe, but I can't count from the photo to make sure. Do you have 17 ridges/34 rows?

I do see that you chose a yarn that is quite a different gauge, but it seems like the bootie would be smaller not larger in that case so that is why I think it's the number of rows. If that's not it then I'm just not sure.

Yes and I used a row counter while knitting it.

Then that may not be it. I'm really not sure. Try again and see if you can figure it out maybe.

Did you do a gauge swatch? It is always a good idea to make sure your gauge is correct when making some article of clothing where fit is important. I'd say it's absolutely essential to make a gauge swatch when you are substituting yarns.

I think her yarn is misnamed, too. It's 16 st over 4 in which is not the typical weight for baby yarn. Anyway, it's possible there is an error in the pattern. Here's a few more simple patterns that are similar that you'll probably get better results.

ETA: I'll try making the LB pattern later and see what I come up with just for interests sake.
