Crocheted Baby Booties

Introduction

Making something by hand for an arriving baby is a thoughtful gesture on the part of a friend or relative -- and it's also a nice way for an expectant mom to pass time toward the end of her pregnancy. These adorable ruby-red booties are an excellent project for an experienced crocheter.

Materials

  • Crocheted booties instruction card
  • Crochet hook US size D3 (3.25 mm)
  • 50 grams red fingering-weight wool yarn
  • Yarn needle
  • Two white shirt buttons
  • Red or white sewing thread

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Download our crocheted booties instruction card; fold the card crosswise, then crosswise again, so it resembles a pamphlet.

  2. Step 2

    Follow crochet and assembly instructions indicated in pamphlet.

    About the enormous size ... did you check the gauge? Everyone's crochet stitches are different (tighter or looser), and you may need to go down a hook size, regardless of what the instructions say.

    I attempted this pattern using the appropriate yarn and hook but it ended up being enormous!?!?
