FREE Crochet Pattern - Blue Whale

Hi, everyone! Today I will share with you a very simple crochet baby pattern for little baby shoes. They are made with this beautiful blue yarn. I was using darker one for the sole and a lighter shade for the upper part. I choose dark blue 1.5 cm big wooden buttons to attach the strap on outer sides of the shoe and just a few strands of dark blue yarn for the slip stitch edging around the straps to make them more playful and fun. But I am sure they will come out amazing in any color you decide to go with. Have fun with the pattern and happy crocheting!

PATTERN NOTES

  • The sole and the upper part in written in rounds and the strap 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.
  • 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)
  • The pattern is written in US crochet terms.
  • This is a pattern for 0 – 6 months
