Free Crochet Bootee/Bootie Pattern


Hello fellow crafty people. :)

This little bootee is made with the old-fashioned Daisy Stitch. It is not at all lacy so is just as suitable for little boys as little girls.

The instep makes an ideal 'canvas' for little cross stitch designs, or any other sort of embroidery you might like to add to personalise them. I particularly like bullion roses.

If you want to make these in advance but you don't know whether the baby will be a boy or girl why not make them in white and then do the tie and trims in another colour once baby arrives? Remember you can put a trim around the sole too. To see that look at the Shell Stitch pattern here.

They'd also look wonderful done in bold, contrasting colours. Imagine a 'rainbow' bootee where the sole and each round of Daisies was another colour in rainbow succession! There would be a few more ends to tidy away but this is easy to do as you go in crochet because you can work over the tails and enclose them completely.

Size: The bootee and slipper both measure 10cm (4") along the sole and 4cm (1.5") across the sole. The bootee is 5.5cm (2.25") tall to the top of the cuff and the slipper is 4cm (1.5") tall - approximately. That should fit a baby around 3 to 6 months old.

I hope you enjoy making them...  Megan

As a bit of an experiment I've tried putting a video of the Daisy stitch below. Please mute the sound while you play this as we didn't :). Just click the play button in the window and with a little luck you'll see the clip.
