Easy Crochet Baby Booties

 

Let me start off saying THIS IS NOT MY PATTERN! I found this pattern on YouTube. While searching for a simple baby bootie pattern I came across LovinglyNie’s video. This is by far the EASIEST pattern to read, understand, and follow.

Her directions are clear and the video explaining it and working through it is even better. She includes multiple sizes and time stamps for each size. The great thing about this pattern is the ability to complete the entire bootie and make real ‘boots’ or stop, like I did, at the ankle and make little slip-ons.

I’m excited to take this basic pattern and add some fun to it! Straps, fringe, buttons, whatever :).  Pleas go SUBSCRIBE to her channel. She has so many more great crochet videos! She also have Facebook and Instagram.

Eleanor is currently 9 months and wearing the 3-6 month size booties, with room to spare. Definitely time to add some straps…. 🙂
