Hello, everyone! I hope you are having an amazing day. Today I would like to share with you a pattern for cute crochet baby flats/booties for little girls. They are made with gray yarn and have a big colorful bow on the front which is attached to the left and right front part of the shoe. The pattern is very easy and beginner friendly. But if you will have any troubles along the way, jump to the video tutorial that will show you step by step instruction on how to make this little shoes from the strat to the finish.
For this tutorial, I was using some Extra Fine Merino yarn, but they can be made with cotton or polyester yarn as well. Lately, I have been using some great cotton yarns, that might become one of my favorites (here!). They are super easy to use and they come in such a great variety of different colors. But you can use any yarn you like, as long as the gauge is correct and they come out in the right size and shape.We all know these two might be a problem. When I first started, I had to make, not just one pair, but three, four sometimes, even more shoes (not pairs of shoes, single ones :)) before I could find two that were the same size. 🙂

YARN: For this pattern, I am using some Super Fine Merino DK weight yarn (here!) in gray and Sport weight yarn (here!) in pink/blue/yellow. You can use any color you prefer.

STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS
- Ch – chain
- Sc – single crochet
- St/Sts – stitch/stitches
- Hdc – half double crochet
- Ss – Slip stitch
- BPhdc – back post half double crochet
- Hdc2tog – half double crochet two together

- The pattern is written in rounds. At the end of each round join the round with a ss. After each row turn and make a chain to lift a row.
- How to read a pattern: If the number is written before the stitch 3 hdc work 3 hdc into the same stitch. If the number is written after the stitch hdc 3, work hdc into next 3 stitches.
- Repeat what is written in the () as many times as it’s written right after the (). For an example: Repeat (2 hdc, hdc 1) 5 times. It means that you have to repeat the sequence work 2 hdc sts into the same st, 1 hdc into the next one 5 times. And you will get 5 additional sts by doing that.
- Use a stitch marker to mark your first stitch of the row/round.
- Gauge: 22 sts and 24 rows in sc measure 4 x 4 inch (10 x 10 cm)
