Crochet Baby Booties Adapted Pattern

Adapted Crochet Pattern - Baby Booties

A while back, a friend recruited me to help with her friend’s baby shower, and I made this fab photo display board. As a result, I was invited to the shower last minute. I don’t know the expectant mother all that well, but I figured some homemade baby booties are universal enough, am I right?

I skimmed through Pinterest, and eventually found this pattern as a free download on Ravelry. Gotta love free downloads! And aren’t they darling?!

Crochet Baby Booties Pattern

 Here’s what you’ll need: 2 colors of soft worsted weight yarn, size G crochet hook.

I switched up the pattern a bit, particularly when it came to the colors. Here’s what I did:

  1. **These slippers were completed with the 0-3 months pattern.**
  2. I used my accent color (purple) for the first 3 rows, or the base of the booties. I switched to white at row 4 (at the back loops only row).
  3. I switched back to my accent color (purple) for row 7, and repeated row 7 a second time for more purple.
  4. For the strap, I slip stitched along the chain rather than using single crochet stitches.
  5. For the flower, I did a magic ring, [ch 3, sc in ring] 5 times (the pattern called for dc).

The ravelry download has alterations for larger sizes as well, and they’re so small that they work up really quickly! Happy bootie making! 🙂
