Basic Baby Crochet Booties

Online Crochet Class




One of the things I wanted to do this year was reduce my yarn stash. The best way to do this is to use it :) When I found this yarn I just knew I had to turn it into a Bear Hat. You can find the pattern for this here: http://www.knotyournanascrochet.com/2015/01/basic-crochet-bear-beanie-newborn.html

Once I had finished that I thought it needed to be a set. So that's how the booties came about.

It's a quick and easy set that I am sure will be well loved by everyone.






Size - 0-3 months

Materials: 
Gauge: Sole should measure 3.5" (9 cm) in length after round 3 and 2.5" (6 cm) in width.

Abbreviations:

Ch - Chain
St - Stitch
Sl St - Slip Stitch
Sc - Single Crochet
DC - Double Crochet 
BLO - Back loop only
Sc2tog - Single Crochet Two Together

Notes: Ch 3 counts as a dc.

Pattern:

Do not join after each round. Instead keep track of the first stitch with a stitch marker.

Round 1: Ch 7, work sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, sc into the next 2 sts, hdc into the next st, 2 hdc into the next st, 6 hdc into the last ch. Now working on the other side of the ch. 2 hdc into the next st, hdc into the next st, sc into the next 2 sts, 2 sc into the last st. (19 sts)

Round 2: 2 sc into the first st, sc into the next 5 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 6 sts, sc into the next 5 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts. (28 sts)

Round 3: Sc in each st around. (28 sts)

Your sole should now measure 3.5". If your sole is too big you need to go down a hook size. If it is to small you need to go up a hook size.

We now want to join our rounds to make the sides of the booties.

Join to BLO of first sc with a sl st.

Round 4: Ch 1, sc in BLO around. Sl st in both loops to join. (28 sc)

Round 5: Now working in both loops. Ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 5 sts, hdc into the next st, dc2tog 6 times, hdc into the next st, sc into the next 5 sts, sc2tog. Join to first sc with a sl st. (20 sc)

Round 6: Ch 1, sc2tog, sc into the next 4 sts, hdc into the next st, dc2tog 3 times, hdc into the next st, sc in the next 4 sts, sc2tog. Join to first sc with a sl st. (15 sts)

Rounds 7-8: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join to first sc with a sl st.(15 sts)
