FREE Crochet Pattern - Blue Whale

Not long ago we celebrated our first year of Croby patterns designs and my aim for this year is to blog a lot more often than I was, last year. You can expect a lot of new and exciting stuff to come this year. Honestly, I can’t wait! 🙂

One of them is my FREE crochet pattern for baby booties Blue Whale. The pattern is very simple, with a lot of pictures, detailed instructions and written in two sizes 0 – 6 months and 6 – 12 months.

Because I would like to share my work with as many crocheters around the world as possible, please help me out and share the link to the pattern with your fiends that love to crochet too. It would mean the world to me.

Subscribe to my blog, come back more often, leave a comment or two on my posts, be a part of our Croby Patterns Family!  It’s very simple, if the page gets more views per day/month/year, it means I am doing something right. And if the views will continue to grow the page will grow and the base of free patterns and great tips and tricks about crocheting with it. 

You are very welcome to share the link to this page, just copy the address of the page and paste it wherever you want, or click on the buttons Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter at the bottom of the page. If you copy and paste the pattern …well that is stealing! So please do not do that. 

This pattern is property of Croby Patterns designs and it is for your personal use only. You can not modify, sell or share this pattern as your own. You can sell finished items made from this pattern, but please mention that the item is made using a Croby pattern.

Thank you!

For these pair of booties that you can see on the pictures, I am using 100% cotton yarn Fibra Natura. It’s an organic, soft yarn, that comes in a variety of different and very nice colors. You can choose between pastels and  very vibrant colors. Their red color is just amazing. The only problem is, that the yarn according to the Ravelry is discontinued. I bought the yarn, month or two ago in one of my local yarn stores and I could find a few stores that sell that type of yarn online, but I am not so sure for how long it will be available. Probably  until their supplies will end. This makes me sad because this is one of the best cotton yarns that I’ve ever used. Never mind, you can use any type of yarn you like, just make sure the gauge is correct (you can read more about the gauge HERE).

Enjoy the pattern, enjoy your life and happy crocheting!

With love, Doroteja

Note!

* Chain at the beginning of the round does not count as a st unless otherwise stated.

* Join the round with the ss into the first stitch in the round. Ss does not count as a stitch unless otherwise stated.

*Always place the marker into your first stitch in each round.

* If the number is written:

before the stitch – 3 hdc = work 3 hdc into the same stitch, after the stitch – hdc 3 = work hdc into next 3 stitches.

*If you see something like that:

Repeat (2 hdc, hdc 1)2 times. It means that you have to repeat the sequence: 2 hdc sts into the first one, 1 hdc into the next one, two times.

Hdc 7(10). It means that you have to work 1 hdc into next 7 sts if you are working on the smaller size and work 1 hdc into next 10 sts if you are working on the bigger size.

= 44(50) sts. It’s the number of the stitches that you have to have at the end of the round. The first number is for the smaller size and the number in the () is for the bigger size.

Row 7: Start in the 6th chain from the hook. You will create a button hole with your next st. (Tip: If you would like to use a larger or a smaller button add or take a ch, or two here. For the example; instead of ch 16 in the previous row crochet ch 18 for bit bigger button. In this case, you should start row 8 in the 8th chain from the hook. And if you have a bit smaller buttons than I have, then instead of crocheting ch 16 in row 7, crochet just ch 14. In this case, you should start row 8 in the 4th chain from the hook.) Hdc 11 into the chain. Hdc into next 24 (28). Sc into next 2. Ss into the last one.

Place the button on the outer side of the shoe. On the opposite side of the shoes flip.

EDGING

Croby Patterns - FREE Crochet Pattern - Blue Whale

This is not a real edging, I would say more a very cute decoration.
Using MC yarn (I used just two strings of cotton yarn not the whole strand of yarn! ) place the hook where you’ve made your last ss in row 8 and ss all the way around the upper part of the flip. Sc 6 around the button hole and continue crocheting on the lower part of the flip. Ss 10 more time. Then fasten off.
