Hi, everyone! In my last YouTbe video tutorial, I asked you guys what would you like to see next and what are the topics you are interested in. I got so many great answers and ideas for the future projects from your comments. One of the answers that were constantly repeating, was if I can create a pattern for crochet baby booties for little boys. And that was exactly what I did.
I dug some blue and gray yarn in my yarn stash and started working on a new design. My goal was, to create simple baby shoes suitable for boys and girls. Nothing fancy, no flowers, no bows or colorful buttons. The solution was super easy … crochet baby sneakers.
The pattern is made of 4 steps: sole, tongue, heel and shoelaces. Not all of them are the part of the same tutorial. As some of you might now (If you are new to my blog, hello! I am so happy you are here! 🙂 ), filming and editing a video took a lot of my time (sometimes more than a week), so I’ve decided to create a separate video tutorial and blog post for crochet baby sole and I will reference all the patterns for baby shoes that will come in the future to this post and video tutorial. Believe me or not, that will save me a lot of time and troubles, plus the videos will be a lot shorter. That means that I will need less time to edit and upload. Yey! And the pattern for the sole will be always the same. After a while, you won’t need to jump to that post/video and back again anymore because you will remember it and you will be always prepared for new baby bootie video tutorials. Simple as that. 🙂

YARN: For this pattern, I am using some 100% cotton DK weight yarn in gray and blue. You can use any color you prefer. (here!)
CROCHET HOOK: You will need one size only. That’s 3.5 mm or E/4 crochet hook. I am using my aluminum crochet hook with a plastic handle. I have no idea where did I buy this hook But I will try to find something similar. (here!)
STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS
- st/sts – stitch/stitches
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- hdc – half double crochet
- dc – double crochet
- ss – slip stitch
- BPhdc – back post half double crochet
- The sole part in written in rounds and the rest of the pattern (tongue and heel) is written in rows. At the end of each round join the round with a ss. After each row turn and make a chain to lift a row.
- Some turning chains count as first stitches of the row and some of them don’t. Please read the instructions carefully!
- 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: 24 sts and 14 rows in hdc measure 4 x 4 inch (10 x 10 cm)
- You can find this crochet pattern available as an inexpensive, ad-free, beautifully designed photo tutorial PDF in my Etsy (here!), Ravelry (here!) and Love Crochet (here!) shop. The pattern includes additional size (6 – 12 months).
- The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

Create a slip knot. Insert the crochet hook into the loop and chain 85. Cut the yarn and pull the yarn tail through. Now make a tight knot on both sides and insert the shoelaces into the shoe.Put the shoe in front of you, you facing the front part. Insert one end from the outside to the inside of the shoe, now insert the shoelace into the opposite facing hole starting from the inside to the outside. When you pull the shoelace through both loops make sure it is the same length on both sides. That’s very important. Now find the hole in a diagonal direction and insert each end of the shoelace into the hole from the inside to the outside. Now make a nice bow and you are done.
