Beginners Crochet Baby Booties Pattern

This is a great project if you are going to a baby shower and need to make something fast. It should take the beginner about two hours to complete but will look as if you had spent days on the project.

Introduction:
Bootie is worked in one piece , beginning at the top of the cuff, down 1 side of the leg, heel and foot part, then the other side of the leg part and up to the other top of the cuff. 
The cuff has a simple ribbed look by using the bpdc and fpdc st.

Special notes:
The turning ch 3 is the first st of each and every row
Do not break off yarn until the final row, leaving your self a long length of yarn to sew up booties

To sew up one piece bootie, it is best not to crochet the bootie closed, a simple whip st makes a finer finish for the inside of the bootie, gentle on the baby's feet.


Sew one piece bootie up all in one go, pick the side you like the best to show on the out side, then make the fold so that is on the in side of the bootie. Sew down the side of the leg, across the top of the foot around the toe part, run the yarn neatly through the middle of the sole (row 9 in pattern), then continue to sew up the other leg side, secure yarn and finish off.


Turn the one piece bootie right side out, turn the little cuff over and there you have it.
You can finish off with some ribbon or a length of chain threaded through through the row above the foot piece or any where of your liking.


 I thought you may like some insight in how I planned this one piece bootie, firstly I did a simple sketch of what I had in mind, I did make a bootie off the  top sketch but is was like one of those Christmas stockings you make, so I had to refine it with a bit of shape and I made the bootie off the second sketch after I refined that a little more too.



Good luck with your bootie, I’d love to hear your feed back.
