Super cute mini booties
Pattern by Maja @makicrochet
Finished size of the bootie is about 7 cm (2.8 in) length, 5 cm (2 in) width and 2,5 (1 in) height.
They are great as a gift and party decoration or as a baby shower favors!
This pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms.
For this pattern you will need:
– two contrasting colors of cotton yarn I use Unitas Mirabela. You can also use some of these brands if they are available to you for my patterns Aunt Lydia’s fashion 3 size 100% Mercerized cotton or “Patons Grace” 100% mercerized cotton.
– 3 mm crochet hook
– yarn needle
– button or bead
You will use a double strand of cotton yarn for this pattern.
That means you will hold two strands together to create one strand while crocheting.
– ch – chain
– sc – single crochet
– hdc – half double crochet
– dc – double crochet
– tr – treble crochet
– slst – slip stitch
First you will make the sole.
Work in round.
Start by making 10 chains.
Make dc in the third chain from the hook, make another 6 dc in next 6 ch, make 4 dc in last ch, make 7 dc on the other side of foundation chain, join with slst in ch 2 space from beginning.
Ch 1, make 2 sc in each next 2 dc from previous round, 1 sc in next 4 dc, 2 sc in each next 6 dc, 5 sc, 2 sc in next dc, 2 sc in slst, slst in first sc from beginning.
Ch 1, make 2 sc in each next 3 sc from previous round, 6 sc, *1 hdc in next sc, 2 hdc in next sc (repeat from * 4 more times), 1 hdc, 6 sc, 2 sc in the each next 2 sc, 2 sc in slst, slst in first sc from beginning. Fasten off.
Attach contrasting color and make ch 1, go around the sole making sc, slst in the ch 1 from the beginning. In this row and rows 2 and 3 you should have 38 stitches. (don’t count slst and chain)
To make the first row of the upper part follow the pictures:
Row 2 and 3:
Ch 1, 1 sc in every stitch around, slst in the ch 1 from the beginning.
Ch 1, 1 sc in next 28 stitches, ch 1, turn your work, skip one stitch, 1 hdc in next, skip one, 1 hdc in next, skip one, 1 dc in next, skip one, 1 dc in next, skip one, 1 tr in next, skip one, 1 dc in next, skip one, 1 dc in next, skip one, 1 hdc in next, skip one, 1 hdc in next, ch 1, turn, insert your hook through the next stitch (the last hdc that you made) yarn over, pull through, *insert hook through the next stitch, yarn over, pull through, repeat from * until you have 10 loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through all 10 loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through and tighten as much as you can, make 2 slst, 1 sc in every stitch to the end (you will have 10 sc until the end of the row), slst in the ch 1 from the beginning.
Ch 1, 1 sc in next 10 stitches, ch 7, 1 sc in last 10 stitches from previous row, slst in the ch 1 from the beginning. Fasten off.
Now turn the bootie and make the row of sc through the last row of the sole holding only one strand of yarn. Make 1 sc in first stitch, 2 sc in next, *1 sc in next, 2 sc in next, repeat from * to the end, slst in the 1st sc from the beginning. Fasten off.
For the blue ones I tied a button, and for the pink ones I made a tiny flower holding only one strand of yarn and tied it with the bead to the bootie.
To make the flower do the following:
Start with ch 3, dc in 3rd chain from the hook (first chain that you made, this one is acting like a magic ring so you will be able to tighten it at the end), ch 2, sc into that first chain again (make all stitches in first chain), *ch 2, 1 dc into the chain, ch 2, sc into the chain, repeat from * 4 more times.
Pull the starting tail as hard as you can to tighten the flower.
Fasten off and tie a knot.
Weave in all ends and you are done! I hope you enjoyed it!
