Free Crochet Pattern Piggy Baby Booties

by Doroteja

Piggy Bootes by Croby Patterns

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! 🙂

You can read all about using the pattern and selling the items using Croby Patterns designs HERE.

Fasten off.

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.

[adinserter name=”REKLAMA 2″]


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.

Round 3:
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 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.

Fasten off.

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.

Piggy Bootes by Croby Patterns



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.

Piggy Bootes by Croby Patterns



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.

These are pig-a-licious!!! Thank you for such a sweet, pigdorable pattern!!

Doroteja September 16, 2015 - 11:29

Hi Darlene!
Thank you so much for the sweetest comment ever! 🙂

brenda September 14, 2015 - 17:19

I would love to make these for Mama, $ year old and baby all matching, can you tell me how to make these larger? Thank you so much, they are so cute

Doroteja September 16, 2015 - 12:04

Hello Brenda!
The easiest way is to use a larger crochet hook and a thicker yarn than the one specified in the pattern. Crochet one sole, then check if the final size of the sole is the size you want. If yes, continue on the upper part. If no, use an even larger hook and a thicker yarn.
Sometimes changing the size of the final item can demand changes in the pattern. In this case you have to rewrite the pattern and adjust it for bigger sizes. As I would have to do it in your case.
But it’s a great idea to make matching booties for a child and for mama. It would be a perfect baby shower gift. I have a premium pattern for crochet baby booties adult size. You can find the pattern here:—summer-dreams

Kind regards,

PHOEBE age: 9 July 30, 2016 - 08:35

I’m making them for my mum’s, friends baby. Her name is Georgia. She’s so sweet. I didn’t even look up piggy? boots before I looked up the pattern. I just thought of them myself…. they are sooooooooooooo cute.

Plus can you make some Zebra ones. They would be soo cute.

Delene September 15, 2015 - 18:00

I love the piggy baby shoes

Sarah Green September 15, 2015 - 18:13

Thank you so much! What talent you have!!! Wow! I have a very special little one I would like to make these for, thank you for the pattern and for sharing your talent!!

Doroteja September 16, 2015 - 11:52

Hello Sarah!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so happy to be able to share my work with you and so happy to hear you have a special little one to make this for. 🙂
Kind regards,

Sydney September 18, 2015 - 18:24

Soooo cute!!!!! Cannot wait to get home and try this! The pattern that you have shown on the website, what is the sole length?? My niece has 4.75″ feet, and I would love to make her these!
Would also love to try and make a chick one because her nana loooooves chicks on her clothes!!! Thank you for sharing!!!

Doroteja September 23, 2015 - 11:23

Hi Sydney!

The final size of the sole in the pattern is approximately 3.5 inch and 4.5 inch. Try to use a 4 mm hook and a bit thicker yarn to make 4.5 inch big sole. 🙂

Jeanette September 27, 2015 - 21:33

How do I make them big enough for a toddler size 11

Doroteja October 3, 2015 - 21:25

I love these piggie slippers I can’t wait to make them for my granddaughter. Thank you for posting the pattern.

Cazzy (Carol Vile) October 22, 2015 - 00:40

Thank you, I love these little piggy shoes. I have made one, and I am on the second in the smallest size (still have the ears and nose to do). I think there may be an error on row 3 of the body of the shoe, where you say sc 10 then repeat 2hdc together then 1 hdc 5 times, then 2hdc together, then sc 11. I have far more than 11 left, and what I did was repeat the 2hdc tog then 1 hdc 7 times, then it worked out, without the final 2 hdc tog. row 4 then worked perfectly.

Doroteja October 22, 2015 - 10:48

Hello Carol!
I checked the pattern for Piggy booties again, I can’t find any errors in round 3. You are mentioning that you have to repeat (hdc2tog, than hdc into the next one) 5 times. In the pattern is written repeat (hdc2tog, hdc into next 2) 5 times. 🙂 You have to repeat what is in () 5 times. And this is, join first two with hdc2tog stitch, than work 1 hdc into the next 2 stitches.
Hope it helps 🙂

Cazzy (Carol Vile) October 27, 2015 - 00:25

Oh, I read it wrong, was only doing one hdc in between the decrease stitches. Thank you. My booties look ok though, I am about to blog them.
I will make another pair now to see if they are better!

Cazzy (Carol Vile) October 27, 2015 - 00:39

I forgot to say, my little grandson loved them, he asked “are they for my baby?”. He is going to have a little sister soon. Thank you for the pattern.

Pamela C October 28, 2015 - 04:54

Love all your patterns and looking forward to making them. You are a very talented lady.

laura December 8, 2015 - 19:33

Hi. I’ve made the first sole of the first slipper but cannot figure out which is the heel end, I don’t know if I’m being dumb lol but please help. Xx

Doroteja December 15, 2015 - 13:01

Hi Laura

The heal part is usually the part where you joining rounds with ss. 🙂

Cazzy (Carol Vile) November 9, 2015 - 01:01

I made a second pair this time following the pattern more carefully lol, I have improved my tail modification this time too.

Piggy booties! That’s better than bacon! This means a lot from a household that thinks bacon is a condiment (just kidding).

I’ve been crocheting for over 46 years and your pattern and photos are the best! What’s even better is that they are free! I was looking for free patterns and everything redirected me to a pintriest, eBay or etsy site that wanted payment for a pattern. Some were upwards of $5 each. I’m always delighted to share patterns with fellow crocheters. I guess I feel everyone should.

First, thank for sharing. 2nd, you have a wonderful gift to not only crochet, but to write clear directions and take photos where there might be an issue.
3rd, your designs are so adorable. I have two piggys to finish up tomorrow for my great great grand niece! Thanks to you Dorateja (such a lovely name too)!

Doroteja February 15, 2016 - 13:26

Aww. You are so kind. Thank you so so much! 🙂

I’m in love with these! In excited to make them as my first pair of baby booties:) I’m wondering what yarn you’ve used, I love the look of it and what I have just does it no justice. Thanks!!!

Doroteja April 9, 2016 - 15:58

Hello Kristen,
I was using Drops, Cotton Light 50% cotton and 50% polyester yarn in pink. 🙂

Ladee April 6, 2016 - 06:48

Is there a printable version with the picture tutorial. I usually print out a pattern because I work from instructions as well as pictures. I am also not able to sit at the computer for hours at a time crocheting which is why I prefer to print it out.

Doroteja April 9, 2016 - 15:51

I am very sorry Ladee, not for now. Perhaps at one point in the future, but I can’t promise anything. Hope you understand. 🙂

Ladee June 11, 2016 - 19:05

Found another pattern with a printable version. Thanks anyway.

Graciela April 10, 2016 - 22:19

In the upper sole in round 4 I don’t understand the Dc2tog into next 4, is 4 times? Or 8 times or what is it? Thanks

Doroteja April 10, 2016 - 23:29

Dc2tog 4 times. 🙂

Graciela April 11, 2016 - 01:07

Thank you, I appreciated

marcela alvarez June 10, 2016 - 18:35

hola buen dia soy de Colombia quiero saber si puedo comprar estos zapaticos de cerditos y que precio tienen mil gracias

Lali July 1, 2016 - 18:49

I love making these but I do get stressed out, maybe I’m an amateur and aren’t familiar with instructions because I always end up with extra stitches in the back so I don’t think I’m supposed to ch1 and then sc in same st because that creates more stitches when we are trying to reduce. So far after ch1 I’m just sc on the next not the same stitch and I still have one extra, I’m just going to omit the ch1 next time and see what happens. I love it though and I can only imagine how difficult it is to create a pattern

Doroteja July 5, 2016 - 08:09

Hi Lali
If you are having a hard time with a piggy pattern I would recommend you to check the video tutorial too. 🙂
Ch 1 and ss on the back are not real stitches in this case. I do not count them as a part of the round. Ss is just a joining stitch that helps you join the round and ch 1 stitch is just a stitch that helps you lift the round one round higher. My first stitch is always into the first stitch from the previous round. But be careful because this is the same stitch you’ve made your ss into. Plus if your seam on the back is a bit of try with turning rounds at the end of each round. 🙂

ppp July 12, 2016 - 11:31

thank you so much for learning!!

Kate October 17, 2016 - 03:21

Hi. I loved your pattern! It was so clearly written and easy to follow. I made these little slippers last night in the smallest size and even though they didn’t turn out quite the way I would have liked, I think it’s due to the kind of yarn I used, they are still adorable. I do have one question. In round 1, for the upper part of the shoe, you didn’t say what stitch to do. I did a hdc all the way around and was on my second bootie before I realized the pattern didn’t say. Looking at the picture you have posted and the slippers I made it looks to me that I should have done sc all the way around. I want to make these again so I was hoping to know which to do next time. Thanks again for the free pattern! I can’t wait to give them as a Christmas gift!

Doroteja October 18, 2016 - 10:37

Hi Kate
Thank you so much for your kind comment. 🙂
Round 1 of the upper part of the shoe is made of BPhdc sts. You have to make 44 (50) of them. I would recommend you to click on the video and check the parts that are not so clear to you. When I first started crocheting video tutorials were my best friends, they still are. 😀
Happy crocheting!

Kate October 19, 2016 - 03:55

Thank you! I watched the video last night AFTER I posted my comment. Now I know what I did wrong! Thanks for getting back to me. I learned how to crochet from watching videos and now I can (usually) read a pattern and undertand it lol. Thanks again! I got more pink yarn and I’m going to give it another shot ?

Sharlene November 18, 2016 - 02:20

Pure joy making these sweet as cotton candy piggies for my grand niece. Thank you so much. This was so generous of you to share. These are going to have a close friendsh with baby drool.

Erika Emery February 6, 2017 - 14:47

Absolutely adorable! I just love all of your patterns. You make them easy to follow. Have you ever made baby booties out of peaches and cream yarn?

Doroteja February 9, 2017 - 12:45

Hi Erika!
I didn’t, but it sounds great! I will definitely order some yarn including these two colors very soon.:)

Hazel D'souza April 10, 2017 - 19:05

Thanks a lot! I managed to make the piggy booties. It didn’t come out totally right since I used a 1.75mm needle. So didn’t gauge the number of stitches quite right. But I sort of got the hang of how to do it.

Sarah August 1, 2017 - 18:35

Lovely pattern thank you???????❤️?

Tracy August 12, 2017 - 22:02

Hi Doroteja,
Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern! Can I just ask – round 1 of the upper shoe – is the first BPhdc in the same stitch as the chain 1?
Thank you.

Nisha August 30, 2017 - 15:33

Hiii…my name is Nisha. I crochet at times. But after looking at ur work…I’m so in love with it. You have just inspired me more. I would love to know each and every techniques of crocheting from you.

Doroteja September 27, 2017 - 13:11

Hi, Nisha! Thanks for your sweet comment! 🙂 I am so happy you are here. 🙂

Fern. October 16, 2017 - 02:34

I did the baby piggy booties they sre so cute.
Now can I have a picture for Mom of piggy boots and the pattern.

diane November 28, 2017 - 11:07

can you embroidery the center part pf the eye on panda and pippgy if you cannot find the oter type of eyes

Doroteja November 29, 2017 - 12:13

Hi Diane!
Yes. It’s even better and much much safer for babies if you embroider small parts (like eyes, nose…) to your crochet items. I would highly recommend it. 🙂

julieta February 27, 2018 - 18:50

slowwwwwww downnnn in the videoooo

Doroteja March 3, 2018 - 14:16

You can slowwwww it downnnn yourself if you click on speed (then choose the speed of the video you want ) that is in the right lower corner of the video. 😆

fossettrhonda November 27, 2018 - 22:40

I love this pattern ❤️

Evonne May 9, 2019 - 06:22

Its so cute but I tried to do it and it came out way smaller than I anticipated. Is it supposed to be that small? My sole is only 7.5 cm long and I followed the 6-12 months pattern.

Doroteja June 7, 2019 - 12:41

Hi Evonne! What kind of yarn and size of the crochet hook did you use for the project? Maybe the yarn was too thin. 😊

Norma May 12, 2019 - 00:36

Hi! I just found your blog and love this little piggy pattern! I would like to ask you a question: What is the length of the 2 different bootie sizes? I want to make a pair for a premie and she has very tiny feet.

Thank you….Norma

Doroteja May 15, 2019 - 13:03

Hi Norma! 🙂 I am so happy you found my blog.
The size of the finished sole is:
0 – 6 months – 9.5 cm or 3.75 inches
6 – 12 months – 11,5 cm or 4.5 inches. 🙂
Happy crocheting!

Judi Witt June 14, 2021 - 23:30

I just made one of the pair of adorable piggy booties and I cannot wait to finish the other one! This pair of darling booties are for my very first Granddaughter, Olivia Elizabeth. I’ve only had Grandsons until now and it’s so nice to be working with pink. Thank you so very much for sharing your amazing pattern!!
