Easy Peasy Baby Booties

 

 

Pattern:

A simple pair of baby booties which take no time at all to make. To fit 0-6 months and 6-12 months.

Pattern is written in US terms, a conversion chart is included at the end.

Materials: Any worsted weight (aran/10ply/grade 4) yarn; 3.5mm hook for 0-6 months; 4mm hook for 6-12 months (adjust hook size if you need to according to whether you crochet tightly or loosely)

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; dc = double crochet; beg = beginning; st/s = stitch/stitches; ch = chain; hdc2tog = half double 2 stitches together; blo = black loop only.

Sizes: 0-6 months (10 cm x 5 cm); 6-12 months (11cm x 6 cm)

Pattern Notes: Work in rounds, joining each round into beginning sc or 2nd ch of beg ch2 (where there is a beg ch2, this counts as a stitch).

Gauge is not too important with these booties, as the drawstring tightens them around the ankles so they don’t slip off.

Work both booties the same.
