Hello my lovely crocheters!
Last week I posted a pattern for crochet amigurumi toy Piggy Bella (you can find the pattern HERE) and I liked the idea so much that I’ve created a pair of piggy booties. With some pink yarn and a standard 3.5 mm crochet hook you can create a pair for your little angel in no time. These booties are perfect if your little sunshine has already started playing with his toes because things will become even more interesting when he/she will discover little piggies on his/her feet. 🙂
You can find more cute crochet baby booties designs HERE.
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 friends that love to crochet too. It would mean the world to me.
Thank you! 🙂

Chain 10 (13).
Round 1: Start in the 2nd chain from the hook. Make 2 hdc into the same. Hdc 7 (10). Make 5 hdc into the last chain from the hook, now start on the other side. Hdc 7 (10). Make 3 hdc into the last one. Join the round with ss.
= 24 (30) sts.
Round 2: Ch 1. Start in the same stitch. Make 2 hdc into next 2. Hdc 7 (10). Make 2 hdc into next 5. Hdc into next 7 (10). Now make 2 hdc into last 3 stitches. Join the round with ss.
= 34 (40) sts.
Round 3: Ch 1. Start in the same stitch. Repeat (2 hdc into the same st, 1 hdc into the next one) two times. Hdc into next 7 (10). Repeat (2 hdc into the same st, 1 hdc into the next one) five times. Hdc into next 7 (10). Repeat (2 hdc into the same st, 1 hdc into the next one) three times. Join the round with ss.
= 44 (50) sts.
You will need one sole for each shoe.
Find center back stitch of the sole; fold the sole in half lengthwise. The stitch in the fold on is the one that you want.
The upper part of the shoe is worked with hook going from outside of shoe to the inside and the nicer side of the sole should be on the outer side of the shoe.
You should start each round in the joining stitch (ss) which should be in the center back of the heel.
Do not count the chain or ss stitch as a stitch at the beginning/end of the round.
UPPER PART OF THE SHOE
Round 1: Start in the middle of the heel. Ch 1. BPhdc all the way around.
=44 (50) sts.
Round 2: Ch 1. Sc into the same st. Sc into next 43 (49) sts. Join the round with ss. Do not turn!
= 44 (50) sts.
Ch 1. Sc into the same st. Sc into next 10 (13). Repeat (hdc2tog, hdc into next 2) 5 times. Hdc2tog into the next. Sc 11 (14). Join the round with ss. Do not turn.
= 38 (44) sts.
Ch 1. Sc into the same st. Sc into next 11 (14). Hdc 1. Hdc2tog. Dc2tog 4 times. Hdc2tog. Hdc into the next one. Sc into next 12 (15). Join the round with ss.
= 32 (38) sts.
Round 5: Ch 1. Sc into the same st. Sc into next 10 (11). Hdc2tog. Repeat dc2tog three (five) times. Hdc2tog. Sc 11 (12). Join the round with ss.
= 27 (31) sts.
Ch 2. Work all the sts into 2nd chain from the hook: 3 hdc, 3sc, 2hdc, 2sc. Join the round with ss into the first stitch of the round (not chain!).
Fasten off and a leave long tail for sewing. You will need two noses, one for each shoe.
Using a white yarn and yarn needle make two lines on the nose as seen in the picture.
Ch 2. Work all the sts into 2nd chain from the hook: sc, hdc, dc, ch 2, dc, hdc, sc.
Fasten off and a leave long tail for sewing. You will need four ears, two for each shoe.
Idea: You can create a little bow for piggy and place it in front of one ear (I would place it on the outer ear on the each shoe). You can find the tutorial how to create a little bow HERE.
For the purposes of this tutorial I’ve created a pair of eyes for each shoe from FIMO(polymer clay) and just glue them on the shoes because I didn’t have any safety eyes at the moment, but I would definitely not recommend doing this if you will put them on baby’s feet. Please, always think about the baby’s safety! 🙂
Now place the nose, ears and eyes on the front side of the each shoe.
Ch 10. Make a first strong knot at the end of the tail. Then place the tail on the middle of the heel into the 4th round of the upper part. Now make one more knot, this time very soft one out of the tail.
Hope you enjoyed the pattern!
Please share it with your friends. 🙂
Until next time!
With love, Doroteja
