Nifty Newborn Booties

By Spiffyniftyriffic

 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

Materials Needed:

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.

Row 1:  Single crochet into 2nd chain from hook and across, turn.

Row 2:  Chain 1, single crochet into next stitch and all the way across, turn.

Row 3-6:  Repeat row 2 four more times.

Row 7:  Slip stitch into the next 5 stitches, chain 1, single crochet into 15 stitches, turn.

Row 8:  Chain 1, single crochet across, turn.

Row 9:  Chain 3, double crochet into each stitch across, turn.

Row 10:  Chain 1, single crochet into each stitch across, turn.

Row 11-15:  Repeat row 10.

Next row is your edging row.  You can from three edgings.


 Ruffle Edge:  Chain 3, sc into next stitch, ch 3 and sc into next stitch around. Slip stitch into first stitch to finish.

Picot Edge:  *Chain 3, sc into 2nd chain from hook.  Single crochet into next stitch.  Sc into next stitch*  Repeat from * to * around.  Slip stitch into first stitch to finish.

Front&BackPost Double Crochet:  Chain 3, front post double crochet into single crochet stitch two rows below, back post double crochet into next single crochet stitch two rows below in the back, around.

Slip stitch into first stitch to finish.

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!

    Could you give me directions on sewing bootie up after its crocheted flat? My top cuff does not come out enen or line up when I put toe end together.

      I leave a long end after finishing up the bootie. I weave in the first tail from the start and then proceed to the other end left out. I start by folding the bootie in half. If you have a “wrong” side fold that side in, personally I think both sides look just as good as the other. I take the end and using a blunt needle run the yarn right through the top of the other side of the bootie wherever it looks the best with no holes, gaps or spaces. I then weave the yarn in and out all the way around the foot stopping sometimes to make sure that when the baby’s foot is placed inside of the bootie there will be no holes as well. There may be times when your crocheting is not perfectly lined up and that is okay, just do your best and space your sewing so that when the bootie is flipped to the outside it will not be noticeable. Sorry for the late reply and I am sure you have already figured all of this out on your own by now but I didn’t want to leave it not replied to. Thank you for visiting the blog. 🙂
