Terry's Crochet Booties... Fast & Easy!

Terry’s Crochet Booties

Newborn booties are 3 – 3 ½ inches long.

Use yarn and hook necessary to obtain size. Suggest 4-ply soft worsted yarn, and H hook.

Chain 22 stitches.

First row: sc starting in second stitch from hook in back loop only to create a ridge. At the end of the row, chain 2, then turn.

Round 1: dc across. At end of row, chain 2, then turn.

Round 2: dc across. DO NOT chain 2 at end of row.

Round 3: slip stitch first 4 stitches, then chain 2 and dc across, leaving last four stitches to match other end of round 3. At end of row, chain 2, then turn.

Round 4: You can hdc across or use the shell pattern. There are enough stitches to make 3 shells, skipping a stitch in-between shell and slipped stitch.

To finish, fold in half with the starting yarn on right. Cut off a portion of yarn, and slip stitch bootie together. You can finish with yarn to make a bow. Bootie top can be folded down, or you can leave it up.
