Best Ever Booties

121 posts in this topic

I thought I'd share my pattern for booties. I am so very picky about them that I have struggled for years to find a pair of booties that will fit a newborn. I guess it started when my nephew was born prematurely and nothing fit him, not even preemie clothes! Anyway, I just made these last week and I even made them with yarn for an older child. I doubled the sole (made two pieces and crocheted them together) and they are adorable! I hope you like them (sorry there's no picture).

I thought of doing a trim for a boy, but they look cute with just the sc at the top. One of my favorite borders or trims for boys is: (sc, ch3, 2 dc) in nt st, then skip an sc. It forms points and is not lacy or feminine at all.

I must say - THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!! I just LOVE this pattern!! I made a pair last night in white with red ties, sc another round in red around the ankle then sc around the ridge on the bottom (wanted a little more color) and let me say this has become my new all time favorite pattern - it is adorable. i am gathering a bunch of my done projects now to take pics and post. still need to make a white with blue trim to go with the red set and will post it too!!

 

thanks again!!!!!

Hurray! I am glad you are all liking the pattern. As far as baby yarn goes, I think I used Pompadour yarn. I am thrilled with it, so happy crocheting at share with others if you desire, just please don't take credit for my work, not that any of you would. I guess I'm preaching to the choir!

I am glad that you can use them for your charity work. I am sure they will fit a newborn and if you want them larger, just use a larger hook. Like I said earlier, I too have had difficulty with things that will fit and look good. I don't liek booties where you make the instep separate and so I took someone else's idea and changed it to my own. I guess that's what writing a pattern is all about! happy crocheting! Brenda

I am glad you like the pattern. I have even made them in worsted weight yarn with a double sole for an older child and they turned out well. I am planning to sit down one of these days and work up a larger range of sizes for slippers for children and adults.

Ty ty for the great pattern. I am gonna try my hand at this one in just a little bit. I am quite challenged by bootie patterns as they never seem to turn out right :lol:lol:lol but this one looks like one I can handle. Can't wait to see what you come up with for children as I have been looking for a pattern for little girls, as I have a friend who is wanting me to make some for her 2 yr old twin granddaughters, but have been unsuccessful on finding anything. :hug
