Hello, my lovely crocheters!
Hope you are all doing well. I am here again with a new crochet pattern for baby booties. These time I’ve decided to add less pictures and rather create a video tutorial that goes in hand with the written pattern. I was watching tons of videos back when I was learning how to crochet and I still do when I am learning new techniques or new stitch patterns. Do you like to watch video tutorials and learn new cool stuff about crocheting too? Or do you like books more?
For this project I am Fibra Natura 100% organic cotton yarn in pink and beige. My 3.5 mm crochet hook, stitch marker and a yarn needle. You will also need 4 buttons, 2 buttons for each shoe. They are for the decoration only, the strap is not a functional part.
Hope you will enjoy using the pattern as much as I did when I was designing it.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below.

- 3.5 mm crochet hook
- Stitch marker
- Yarn needle
- DK weight yarn (I am using Drops Belle in light blue and beige color)
- 4 buttons.
22 sts and 24 rows in sc measure 4 x 4 inch (10 x 10 cm).
- St/Sts – stitch/stitches
- Ch – chain
- Sc – single crochet
- Hdc – half double crochet
- Dc – double crochet
- Sc2tog – join two sts with single crochet two together
- Hdc2tog – join two sts with half double crochet together
- Dc2tog – join two sts with double crochet two together.
- Chain at the beginning of the round does not count as a st unless otherwise stated.
- The pattern is worked in rounds. Join at the end of each round with a slip stitch. In this slip stitch case does not count as a stitch.
- Using marker will help you keep track with your stitches. I always make my first stitch of the round.
- 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 (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.
- Numbers in the () states a number of stitches needed for bigger size.
- The pattern is written in 2 sizes: 0 – 6 months (6 – 12 months)

CROCHET BABY BOOTIES INSTRUCTIONS
Take the beige yarn (or any color you choose for the sole part) and ch 10 (13).
Round 1: Start in the 2nd chain from the hook and make 2 hdc sts into the same stitch. Hdc 7 (10). Work 5 hdc sts into the last one. Now start on the opposite site of the chain and make 1 hdc into next 7 (10) sts. One stitch left. Work 3 hdc sts into that last chain. Join the round with a ss. Don’t’ forget, ss does not count as a stitch. = 24 (30) sts.
Round 2: Ch 1. Work 2 hdc sts into next 2 sts. One hdc into next 7 (10) sts. 2 hdc sts into next 5 sts. Hdc 7 (10). 2 hdc sts into last 3 sts. Join the round with a ss. = 34 (40) sts.
Round 3: Ch 1. Repeat (2 hdc, hdc 1) 2 times. Hdc 7 (10). Repeat (2 hdc, hdc 1) 5 times. Hdc 7 (10). Repeat (2 hdc, hdc 1) 3 times. 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.
Here I am using pink yarn (you can use any color you like for the upper part).
Round 1: Start in the middle of the heel. Work in back loops only (this round only :))! Ch 1 and hdc into the same stitch. Hdc into next 43 (49) sts. Join the round with the ss into the first stitch of the round. (Do not count the chain or ss stitch as a stitch at the beginning/end of the round). Do NOT turn. = 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.
Round 4: Ch 1. Sc into the same st. Sc into next 11 (14). Hdc 1. Hdc2tog. Dc2tog into next 4. 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. Sc2tog. Sc into next 8 (9). Hdc2tog. Repeat dc2tog three (five) times. Hdc2tog. Sc into next 8 (9). Sc2tog. Sc 1. Join the round with ss. = 25 (29) sts.
Fasten off and weave all the ends.
Take the beige yarn. Insert the hook into the 5th round of the upper part of the shoe. Find the stitch that is in the middle of the heel. Ss all the way around. join the round with a ss. Fasten off.
So the main part is done. Now we have to make the straps. I am using the pink yarn again. They are made of two rounds only.
But first of ch 10.
Round 1 This round is the same as the first round of the sole. Start in the 2nd chain from the hook and make 2 hdc sts into the same stitch. Hdc 7 (10). Work 5 hdc sts into the last one. Now start on the opposite site of the chain and make 1 hdc into next 7 (10) sts. One stitch left. Work 3 hdc sts into that last chain. Join the round with a ss. = 24 (30) sts.
Round 2: Change the yarn color. Here I am using the beige yarn again. Ch 1. Sc into next 11 sts. Work 2 sc into the same. Sc into next 11. 2 sc into the same. Join the round with a ss and fasten off.
Use the beige yarn and create a round of ss stitches on the bottom of the sole. Work into unworked loops of the sole only. Ss 44 (50).
Take the buttons and attach them and the stripe on the shoe. On each side one as seen here.
