Nifty Newborn Booties
This is a bootie I wanted to make so that if you did not want to put socks on
your baby they would keep their feet warm anyway. Most booties are sort of
loose and hard to keep on but with the single crochet stitches I think this bootie
will be one of your favorites to make.♥ The set pictured is of the girls ruffle edge.
Fits Approx. size Newborn to Three Months
Size H Crochet Hook
Any Worsted Weight Yarn
(I used Red Heart “Love” Yarn and/or I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby)
Blunt needle to weave in ends
Small amount of ribbon
Gauge isn’t really a concern since babies come in all different sizes and the yarn is stretchy. The size of the booties I made are approximately 3 inches long. If you want a smaller bootie you can always go down a hook size.
Being by chaining 28 on your foundation row.

When you have your edge row done leave a pretty good tail before you cut your yarn because you can use it to sew up your bootie. I like to sew it up to the edging row so it is nice looking when you fold it down. You also need to run your ribbon through your double chain row and tie it in a bow!
