I love to crochet, and my biggest passion is baby booties! Here is one pattern I would like to share with you!

This is the pattern for Lavander Baby booties!
Now it is also available as free download on Ravelry in pdf format!

It is very easy and quickly to make these booties. I offer you two versions of one pattern. You can make them striped or just in one colour. I made marks in the pattern where you should change yarn to make them striped as you can see on the photo.

Size:
0-6 months, app. 10 cm foot lenght.

Materials:
· 25 gr of 100% cotton yarn in one colour (I used Phildar 100 % cotton yarn “Detente” Lavande) , or 20 gr of cotton yarn in basic colour and 10 gr in another colour.
· crochet hook Nr.3 (should be the same as size “D”) or size needed to obtain gauge.
· two ribbons (each 50 cm long)

Gauge:
4 sts = 2 cm or 5 sts = 1 inch

Stitches used:
st(s) – stitch(es)
ch – chain stitch
hdc – half double crochet
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch

Rnd 1: Begin with main colour yarn.
Ch2, join with sl st in first ch.

Rnd 2:
Ch1, hdc 9, join with sl st in ch-1

Rnd 3: If you make striped booties now change the yarn and change it in every rnd without cutting threads.
Ch1, hdc 2 in each st around the work (all together must be 20 hdc) , join with sl st in ch-1 space (always join in ch-1 space)
Rnd 4:
Ch1, *skip next st, hdc 1, ch 1, hdc 1 in the same st as first hdc*, repeat from * 9 times, join with sl st in ch-1

Rnd 5:
Ch1, *(hdc 1, ch 1, hdc 1) in ch-1 space*, repeat from * 9 times, join with sl st in ch-1

Rnds 6 – 11: make as rnd 5

Row 12: If you are making striped booties from now you should use only main colour yarn.
Ch1, *(hdc 1, ch1, hdc 1) in ch-1 space*, repeat from * 7 times, turn work

Rows 13 – 17: make as row 12

Turn bootie inside out. Put together both sides of heel and using sl st connect them. Work in all four loops.
Fasten off.

To make bootie’s edge you should begin in the middle of the heel.
Rnd 1:
Ch1, work evenly sc around the bootie (should be around 28 sc, can be less, but try not to make more), join with sl st in first sc.

Rnd 2:
Ch2, skip next st, hdc 1, *ch 1, skip next st, hdc 1*, repeat from * around the bootie, join with sl st in ch-2. These will be holes for ribbons.

Rnd 3:
Ch 1, sc in each st around the bootie, join with sl st in first st.

Rnd 4:
*Ch3, skip next st, sl st* , repeat from * around the bootie.

Rnd 5:
In ch-3 loop work *hdc 3, ch 3, hdc 3, sl st in sl st of previous rnd (watch photo)*, repeat in all ch-3 loops you have.

Fasten off!
Second bootie make equal!
And here they are!

  1. Hi there! I love these booties and am trying them out. I got to the part where I need to turn them inside out and put the heel together. But this is where I am stumped. What parts of the bootie are being sl st together? I need a little clarification on this part. Can’t wait to finish these! They are so cute. Thanks for sharing your pattern!

  2. Aha! I see now! Thank you so much for responding right away. They are so cute and I don’t want to wait to finish them. You do such beautiful work!

  3. Hi,
    I am newer to crocheting. I am making your booties which have very easy up until connecting it together. Can you help clarify? What are the 4 stitches? Also, how do you finish off and then continue working on the edging? Do you actually cut the yarn and begin again?
    Thanks!

  6. TaRa, I mean it that you should seam together both sides of the heel, and instead of using thread and needle I suggest to work sl st in all four loops (2 you have on one side, 2 on another). 🙂

  7. yes yes darling i got what you mean….However, i think if we say that
    JOIN THE HEEL TOGETHER WITH SLIP STICHES,
    THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN
    WE TURN THE BOOTIE INSIDE OUT…that way we have the seam inside (hidden)
    then we turn the work to the right side….
    Thank you very much for your fast reply and i wish you more creativity…

  8. Actually it is written that first you should turn it inside out and then you should join the sides of the heel… 🙂 Yes, I didn't mention that then you have to turn it to the right side…

  9. hey,very beautiful booties! made one for my friend's baby boy and she loved it.Going to make another one…Thanks for sharing the pattern 🙂

  10. I used your pattern to make pumpkin booties for The Preemie Project. They were adorable. I just used green and didn't put the ruffles at the top. Thanks for providing such an easy pattern; I was able to make 20 pairs!

  11. hey Vita!
    thank you for your free patterns! I have one question. On the “Cute Baby Booties Pattern”,right below the “Upper” headline, you have a photo of the bootie looking bigger up front.. with the directions, it doesn't come that way… are we still going in rounds when we get there or back and forth. Confused on this.. again.. many thanks for taking the time..pat psdumas@comcast.net
