Pattern Notes

I have labeled this pattern as an intermediate design because of the post stitches used to decrease and shape the toe of booty. I highly recommend you view the video tutorial for this pattern, at least for the foot portion of the pattern.

This pattern is currently only available in the newborn size. If you wish to make a larger pair of booties, I recommend you use a worsted weight yarn and a size 5 mm hook. By manipulating the gauge in this way, your finished booty should fit 9-12 mos.

  • Michelle Page

    I made these in pink, adorable. I love the idea with the one ruffle and the buttons, very cute variation…..Thanks. Keep the video’s coming. They help out sooo much when doing a complicated pattern.

  • Sue Dalsing

    I sewed the buttons on before I did any of the cuff. Made it a lot easier for a non sewer. Also this line-Round 1: Slst in the blo of the first stitch (the one with the stitch marker). Ch 3 and make one Dc into every stitch. Join with a slst to the third chain. (38 sts). Did you mean to do all the double crochets in the BLO also?

    • Sue Dalsing

      Try a bigger needle and worsted weight yarn, that is what I am going to do. Play around with it, you might even need to used bulky yarn.

  • Jenessa

    I made these for my 8 month old daughter and I love them.. I’d like to make them for my 16 month old niece, any bigger patterns available?

  • kerri

    Am I the only dummy who can’t figure out how to make the right bootie? My left bootie looks great, but I’d love to finish the pair!

  • Penny Zerr

    Thank you for the video. I work so much better seeing than reading patterns. I made the 0-3 months and the 9-12. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get a 3-9 size? This is currently the size I need.

  • Katie

    Love this pattern! I’ve followed the video tutorial & they’ve come out great. However, I can’t make the ruffle meet at the end. I have 26 stitches but the ruffle is a set of 4.. so I always end up at the opposite side to where I started (so at the top when I started at the bottom). What am I doing wrong?? My thoughts are the stitch count base needs to be divisible by 4, which 26 is not.. please help!!

      • Madeline Hammon

        Hello Katie!
        I’m having this same issue. I know you’ve said in your comment that the ruffle goes up every other stitch, but in the video you explain that it goes up, skips, down, skips, then up again – so to me, like Katie, it makes sense that the stitches on the calf would need to be a multiple of 4, but I have 26, so my ends are not meeting up correctly. Would you be able to explain to me how to fix this? Thank you! And these booties are beautiful <3

  • Marie

    When will the video come out with the corrections for ruffled baby booties. I need to have them made by the end of August . Round 3 of the foot is a little confusing with the GPbpdc2tog but not decreasing is where I am having this problem.??????

  • Tracey

    Oh No! I was hoping to watch this tutorial to figure out the ruffles for the mermaid cocoon! Hope it is up soon so I can get that finished up!
    Thanks for all you do!

  • Hi Tracey, I’m so sorry for the confusion! This tutorial has proven to be a nightmare and I will be removing it immediately. The written pattern is correct, so I definitely recommend following it. I’ll have a new tutorial posted when I can refilm the project. Thank you for your patience!

    • Tracey

      No worries! I understand! I hope you can get the new video up soon, because it’s easier for me to follow the video. I love your tutorials and patterns! Thank you

  • Carla

    These booties are so cute…I tried making them 4 times…I can’t get the count to be the same as yours..I’m giving up! I hope you get it corrected soon…I need to get them finished before September. Thanks for your tutorials, other than this problem you are a great instructor and your videos are so easy to follow…the written does not match you video.

  • Marge

    Just finished the booties. Written pattern a little confusing and stitch count I had at end of round 3 on foot was different from yours. I just continued and finished bootie and it came out beautiful. Thanks for the pattern.

  • In round 3 of the foot, the written pattern states to do *FpBpDc2Tog over the next 2 sts. Repeat from * over the next 4 sts. Which would be a total of 3 decreases. In your video, it says to do 5 decreases “like the previous row.”

    If I follow the written pattern, my stitch count is spot on. However if I do 5 decreases, I’m two stitches short.

    I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I figured I’d bring it to your attention!

  • Jin

    Actually after I did round 3 of the foot, following the video tutorial, I ended up with 33 stitches still. Looks like in the video she is doing 5 groups of FpBpDc2Tog exactly over the previous row’s 5 groups of FpBpDc2Tog – so in the video she’s not decreasing at all?

    I’m sticking with the video tutorial as the boot looks good at the end.

  • Anitha

    Such a lovely pattern.Came across this a little late my baby is 6 months now.Can you please tell me how to increase size to fit a 1yr old girl .Awaiting your reply.Thank you in advance

  • Diana Scott

    These are so stinking cute Brittany!! I’m doing them in pink. I am so happy that you share your designs with us, Keep dreaming and keep creating. I just adore your work. TFS. ~Diana~ Hugsxoxo

  • kris

    I love these….however….sizes would be nice…I guess I could try to increase it but I’m not quite that good yet. Also…I used a little over 180 yds of 4 worsted which kinda stinks as it was just over one package of yarn. But the video was VERY good. Very detailed. Your written version was good too. I tried one in Crochet World and what a nightmare….very poorly written. I will definitely use more of your patterns. Thanks 🙂

    • Thanks Kris, I’m glad you really enjoyed this pattern! Yardage can vary worth differences in gauge so that may have been the cause of the difference between the pattern requirements and what you used.

  • Mary Faith Rideout

    Thank you for the beautiful booties! The video is easy to follow, so I plan to make at least two pair as gifts. Thanks again!

  • feline

    I find this pattern hard to follow. You say fpbpdc2tog in the next two stitches. To me that means do it once. Maybe you should just say how many times to do it not how many stitches. I am an advanced crocheter so I can figure patterns out even when written wrong but this one is frustrating. Even the video seems wrong. How can you go from 33 stitches decrease 5 times and end up with 30 stitches?

  • mitzitrenz

    I absolutely love your pattern, and can hardly wait to make them. That’s going to be a couple of months since I’m moving to MN at the end of April and my yarn is already packed… Oh..in the meantime…there’s a typo on the line that reads: “Please not that sizing”…. I think that should read “Please note that sizing”

    Thanks for sharing the pattern with us. 🙂

  • These are absolutely adorable. I’m going to make them, but alas, no babies around to give them to. Great pattern. Thank you.
    I am new to your site, tomorrow will come back to browse.
