I just did these over the past three days. These turned out great.I used two strands of DK acrylic yarn. It is a local Pakistani yarn, looks nice and sturdy. However as someone mentioned at crochetville, this pattern would look still better in suede. It is done entirely in sc with some sl st at the finish. I had to redo the first foot to get the fit exactly right but still I finished it in two evenings. That may also be due to the fact that I had been starving myself off knitting and crochet for the past few weeks.
