Sarah's Quick and Simple Baby Booties
If anyone has any corrections, tips, or thoughts on how to better write this pattern, please leave me a comment!
Skill Level: Easy
Project Time: It took me 1 hour 15 minutes to do 1 bootie. So about 2.5 – 3 hours.
4.00mm (G) Crochet Hook
1-2 Ounces Sport Weight Yarn (I used Bernat Baby Coordinates)
Fits 4” sole and 5 ½ “ ankle
Stitches and Abbreviations Used:
Ch – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
Slst – Slip Stitch
DC FP – Double Crochet in Front Post (for this pattern FP is inside the ankle)
DC BP – Double Crochet in Back Post (for this pattern BP is outside the ankle)
Tog – Together
Rnd – Round
To make smaller or larger always Ch the number of DC you want to do and add 2 Ch (example: this pattern uses 39 DC you Ch 41).
Row 1: DC in 4th Ch from hook. 1 DC in each Ch to end (39 DC). Ch 3 and turn.
Rows 2-7: *Miss 1st DC, 1 DC in each DC to end Ch 3 and turn.* Repeat from * to * 6 times for a total of 7 rows.
Fold in Half
Toe: Slst tog in DC #19 and #21 (from end in top). Slst 8 more times (#’s 18 & 22, 17 & 23, 16 & 24, etc.) for a total of 9 Slst. Finish off.
Sole: Slst tog in DC # 19 and #21 to end(#’s 18 &amp;amp;amp; 22, 17 & 23, 16 & 24, etc.). DO NOT FINISH OFF continue to heel.
Heel: Slst tog up heel opening. Ch 1 and turn inside out (right side out)
Rnd 1: Ch 2, DC FP, DC BP, alternating between FP and BP all around. Join with Slst in top of Ch 2. (I ended up with fp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp, fp, bp)
Rnds 2 & 3: Ch 2 DC FP, DC BP, alternating between FP and BP all around. Join with Slst in top of Ch 2. Finish Off.
