I'd also like some ideas for making bigger booties. My son has the biggest little feet but it would be great for him to wear these when he meets his uncle (who works for croc) next month.

This might be a newbie question but i've run across this same issue before maybe you can help me...when working the sole it will fit the left foot, what is the best way to work the rounds for the other foot?  I hope you know what I mean by this and thanks again!!

It's the same for both feet.  You shouldn't do anything different for the second one. They will form to the shape of the babies feet when they are wearing them.

The first stitch is made in the same stitch as the joining of the previous round.

TFS your pattern, I am about to start makign these, but since they are "crocs" I am wondering if there is any way to make the strap where it can "move" like real crocs do? Any help would be great, thanks in advance.

How about attaching both sides of strap with buttons, that way it will move.
