Warm booties crochet pattern

Crochet baby booties

Booties crochet patternYOU WILL NEED

King Cole Merino Blend DK (100% wool, 50g/112m), 1 ball of Clerical (049)

A 3.5mm (US E/4) hook

2 buttons, 1.5cm diameter

Tapestry needle

SIZE

9cm (3 1/2in) sole, to fit baby aged 0-6 months

NOTE

The boots are quite firm using the 3.5mm hook, so they are sturdy and secure to wear. If you'd prefer to make them either bigger or more like slippers, simply change your hook size to a larger one.

When you're making the boot cuffs, make sure you remember to do one with RS facing and one with WS facing - otherwise you will end up making two left feet!
