Hi, everyone! I was working on a new crochet pattern for spring baby booties that will be released very soon and come to the conclusion that there is no need to repeat how to crochet baby sole all the time and edit it over and over again when I am working on a new baby bootie video tutorials if the sole is always the same. So I’ve decided to make a simple video tutorial and written instructions for how to crochet a baby sole that will be compatible with all the upper parts of my baby shoes that I will release in the future. The size of the sole is around 9.5 cm or 3.75 inches and will be a perfect fit for 0 – 6 months old baby.
Watch the video and follow the step by step tutorial to learn how to make crochet baby sole from start to finish.

Once you are there turn on post notifications (little bell next to the subscribe button) so you won’t miss any of my future videos. It’s free! 🙂
Let’s switch on the things you might need or would I recommend for this tutorial.
- YARN: For this baby sole, I was using Light Weight 100% cotton yarn in a beautiful deep purple color, but if you would like to make your crochet sole more firm try to use some Worsted or also called in the UK Aran weight yarn. The sole will come out firmer and the shoe will have a nicer, more perfect shape. But think twice before you do that because the stitches will be denser and the holes between them will be smaller, so it will be a bit harder to crochet and the shoe won’t be so soft anymore. But it will look great. 🙂 (HERE!)
- CROCHET HOOK: 3.5 mm (E/4) and 4.0 mm (G/6) crochet hook or hook to obtain the gauge (HERE!).
- OTHER: stitch markers (HERE!), yarn needle (HERE!), scissors (HERE!).
- ch – chain
- hdc – half double crochet
- ss – slip stitch
- st/sts – stitch/ stitches
- This pattern is written in rounds. At the end of each round join the round with a ss, that is just a joining stitch and does not count as a real stitch.
- Always start the round in the 1 st of the previous round, that is in the same stitch you’ve made your ss in.
- 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 round.
- The pattern is written in US crochet terms.
- Gauge: 10 sts and 6 rows in HDC to measure 5 x 5 cm (2 x 2 inches).
- Skill level: Easy
- The final measurement: 9.5 cm (3.75 inches).

Now find the upper part of the shoe you love and continue with your work. Please have in mind that this crochet baby sole is compatible with the upper parts of baby booties that you can find on my blog (at least from this day forward). Every crochet designer’s sole pattern for baby shoes is a bit different and this is just me sharing how I do mine.
