Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties Pattern




I started playing around with my Crochet Rain Boots pattern and adapted it into these cute little cuffed booties! Enjoy the the pattern and be sure to follow my instructions on where to start, end and join your rounds since it is different than the rain boots pattern!

Always begin your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.

In rounds 2-5 you will end your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. So technically you will be adding an extra stitch to each round. I have found that this helps keep the heal flatter.





Update 10-26-12: A video tutorial for rounds 1-7 is now available on my YouTube channel. I am only allowed to upload 15 minute videos at a time so this all I have so far...  but I think it will help a lot of you out!



Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties
Size: 6-12 months

Supplies:
Vanna's Choice® medium worsted weight yarn in two colors
Crochet hook size G-6 (4.0 mm)
tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Fold over cuff (rounds 17-22)

Optional: Slip stitch around the bottom of the boot to create a thicker rim. I did this along the first “rim” that was created from crocheting in the back loops.

Tiny 5 petal Flower Pattern:
Magic Ring, SC 10 in magic ring, join, chain 1
In next stitch: (HDC, DC, HDC) all in one stitch, chain 1 and slip stitch to next stitch, chain 1 - repeat around.
fasten off and leave tail to sew on

  10. I'm new, and I get confused row 8, what I understand its sc12, then 1sc decrease, 1sc in next 2, but what does the 4 times mean? I've been trying, and I always have like 8 or 9 stitches away from me to join... Please help! :-) thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Diana,

      I'm definitely not an expert, but when you see something in brackets in a pattern, followed by something like "4 times", it wants you to repeat what's in the brackets that many time. So in this instance, you do the decrease, then 2 sc, 4 times. I hope that helps! (Sarah, I don't mean to steal your thunder!) :-)

      Delete
    2. Thanks Chiclet!! Yes, you repeat what it is in the brackets 4 times.

      Delete
    3. It means you will decrease then sc in 2 stitches 4 times total then finish the round with sc 12.

      Delete
    4. I had the same problem, and I found out it was my own fault. I made a sc decrease, but counted the stitch I made as 1 of the 2 you have to make. While actually you skip one, and make 3 sc's, and skip one again, then 3 again. You do that 4 times.

      Delete
  11. I need some help with rnd 2. Do I do HDC, 2HDC, HDC in each stich for the first 6 sts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, you make a HDC in the first stitch, two HDC in the second stitch, and one HDC in the next 6 stitches. Hope that is a better explanation :)

      Delete
    2. I was confused the same as Jessica.

      Thanks for the clarification!

      Delete
  12. I love this pattern and am finding that it works up really fast! Thank you so much!

    Quick question though: I'm confused about the cuff. Are rows 17-19 all SC and then switch from HDC to SC on rows 20-24 or is it just row 17 that's SC and then you switch between the two on rows 18-22?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You had it right the first time: rows 17-19 are all single crochet and then switch from HDC to SC on rows 20-24. But it really isn't that important what combination of stitches you do, I just like the way the alternating HDC and SC look on the cuff :)

      Delete
    2. Thank you! The first one came out so cute!

      Delete
  13. Thank you both for this I will try it again!. (fingers crossed!)

  14. Hi! I love your patterns but had a question. If I used a smaller hook would it make these smaller? I'm needing some for a nb-6 mos or so...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi could u please help me what is a deep single crochet ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From my understanding and looking it up, all you do it insert the needle a little farther past the loop you would usually stitch into. You can see in the picture that the stitches look deeper in the transition from gray to pink, as a result from the 'deep' stitch.

      Delete
    2. It's in the video... it's kind of like going into the previous row...

      Delete
    3. I thought it means going into the V part of the stitch. Or are we picking up from the bottom stitch..

      Delete
  16. What do you mean by ''join" that's the only thing I'm not understanding !

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank you!! These are adorable! I am so grateful to you for sharing this pattern. I need to try and make some this week for my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is row 6 worked in back loops also? And are there no joins or chains in that row or the last 4?

  20. These are adorable but I just can't get mine to look like that. Seems much bigger despite a tight stitch and doesn't seem to lay smooth.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What I get now is that rounds 2, 3 are in both loops, round 4, 5, 6 in back loops, round 7 in both loops till the final round or only the 7th round? and the rest am I right or it's something else?

    ReplyDelete
  22. And please Sarah clarify "deep" single crochet!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hang in there everyone! I am going to try to make a video tutorial this week and hope that it will answer all of your questions!

    1. What size hook would I need to make a smaller size? Or will this be in the video as well? I love the pattern just want to be able to make them in smaller/bigger sizes. Just don't know which hooks to use.

    2. Great, and make a note what to do if we wanna make it bigger ;)

    3. I followed this pattern exactly, only used a size K needle, and used two strands of yarn instead of one. (you could also just use thicker thread.) It made approx. a size 5/6 in kids.

    4. Jennifer - are you talking 5/6 toddler age? I want to make these for my almost 2 year old and she's wearing 6's. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    I'd love to know how you change color so neatly as well! :-)

  25. These shoes are so, so cute! I just made one but it turned out lopsided for some reason :( I did count all the way through but might have joined at the wrong stitches or included too many decreases on one side. A video would be great! :D Thank you for sharing this pattern! :)

  31. I am also confused on several things on the pattern in regards to after the 1st round what do I join it to? The 5 sc in the last chain is more stitches and makes a gap. Also, the deep single crochet (couldn't find it anywhere) and do I turn after the rounds? The video tutorial would help alot. Thank you.

    1. If you have a gap where the five sc are just pull on the tail to make it tighter when finished

  32. I love this pattern, just adorable! I was also wondering if you have a pattern to make a smaller sized bootie? For a younger baby? Thanks in advance and until then I will make these! :)

  33. Love this pattern :) Just wondering if I was to make them for a one year old up can I just use or bigger needle or would I also have to add more to the starting chain? thank you xx

  34. Yeah sooooo beautiful shoes! I gonna make these for a baby girl who's gonna be born at the end of this year. But they should fit to a 0-6 months old, so I'm asking the same question: how to make them smaller? Or are they small enough to fit a newborn..?
    anyways, it's real kind of you to share the pattern! Thank you!

  39. These are so cute! Just made a pair for a baby shower gift. I ended up altering the pattern slightly by turning at round 17, so the outside would be prettier when folded over :) Then I added a row of scallops (ch1, 5dc in next st, skip 1, sc, skip 1, 5dc, etc until there's 6 scallops for anyone who wants to try it). They turned out great! Thanks for the pattern!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi jessica, thank you for the great idea to alter the pattern with scallops, great idea for a baby girl...I also need to make newborn size, so I used a smaller hook (E or 4mm) and used snuggly wuggly baby yarn, I got at Michaels store....they came out perfect. A huge thank you to Sarah for shareing the pattern and others. Happy hooking (LOL)

  40. How to make these smaller? For a newborn to 6 months? Please, someone, help me!

    ReplyDelete
  41. To make smaller booties I would use a thinner yarn (Vanna's Choice is a little on the bulky side) and go down a hook size. I am also a loose crocheter, so I am sure if you crochet tighter, it will end up smaller :) Hope this helps!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This booties are beautiful. Just started with my first one. And the video is great. Thanks for sharing :)

  44. so deep sc is you just single crochet over the previous round? single crochet in the same stiches as previous rounds? please help me. Also, when do you do that optional slip stitch round on the bottom of the shoe?

    ReplyDelete
  45. These are só cute! I also don't understand what is ment by "slip stitch". (half single crochet in the stitches of the first rim in backloops??)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Could you tell me which row you did the slip stitch in on the sole? Thank you for the cute pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just as a note - making these for the first time - read instructions first, then watched a portion of the video. At the end of Round 5 it says:
    "Round 5: In back loops only, SC around, join, ch 1. (40 SC)
    Change to color 2
    Round 6: SC around making deep single crochets (40 SC)"
    Yet in your video, I think you change colors before the join and chain 1, so that your color change occurs soon enough to keep the second color all in the same row, rather than having the chain 1 show up in the first color, correct?
    If this is the case, could you update the instructions for us newbies who aren't very good at color changes yet? ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello, I have noticed there are a couple different ways to change colors so although I wrote it out to change colors after you chain 1, I prefer to change colors and then join, chain 1 (like I did in the video). Either way you do it will be fine :)

      Delete
  48. So, at round 17, it says 17-19 sc around. Yet then, it says 18 is HDC...I'm assuming that the 17-19 is a typo, and should just read 17.
    Is this correct??
    thanks

  65. These booties are great! The pattern was easy (just make sure you're counting as you go)- the booties came together really quickly! After making a pair for my nephew, I was asked if I could make a pair for my friend's daughter - I created a modified pattern using this pattern to fit 24 months (which was also pretty simple). I'll be putting a pair together over the next day or two. Very excited!

  92. at the end of round 6 in the video you join and ch 1 but you did not write that in the pattern. So far this is turning out nice. Just a few suggestions for your patterns and videos. If I were a beginner I probably would not be able to follow along with your video because you crochet quite quickly. Maybe you could slow down a bit when doing a video tutorial (also it is hard to hear you, maybe speak louder)
    You didn't meantion a guage for the pattern so im not sure if my botties are going to turn out the same size as yours. Maybe you could write that in or measure the length and width of the sole of the booties so everyone will know if the size is working out correctly. I hope you dont mind the suggestions! Thanks for the beautiful pattern!!!!!!! They are lovely

  97. oh my gosh!!! I have a friend who is having a baby in less than 2 weeks!!!! I'm going to have to Crochet a whole basket load of these for her!!! They are way too adorable!!! You do such fantastic work!!!!

  98. Round 10 says 6SC decrease. Does this mean I SC decrease 6 consecutive times moving around the row? How it is written is confusing me as it makes me think I SC decrease 6 times in the same stitch. Can someone please clarify? Thanks!

  102. Okay let me try this again....On that invisible sc decrease did you use both loops or just the front loops to make the sc decrease? Mine look like duck feet on the toe part!! BTW how's the pregnancy going??

    ReplyDelete

    1. Catherine, you only use the front loops for the decrease. There is a really good tutorial that shows you how to do it.

  103. I just did the steps for first colour and it turned out way too small! I counted all the stitches as I went, it turned out the size for a dolly not a 6 month old. Any idea what I did wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love your tutorial, but for a novice I think it is too fast and I would have liked it to be somewhat slower in the video.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I see that this pattern is for 6-12 months. How can I make it for a smaller child, say 3 to 6 months. Any help would be appreciated:-)

    ReplyDelete
  106. In round 8 do i do the SC 12, then decrease after that? i'm a bit confused on this.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I did this once and it came out HUGE, so I went and bought a smaller hook and yarn, made sure to crochet tight, and again still HUGE! I counted my stitches and it came out right.i did notice you wrote 6 mos-12 mos so I guess I'll hang onto them for awhile, but the sole of the foot is as big as my palm!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Is there a pattern for a smaller version of this boot?

    ReplyDelete
  109. ok I like doing this pattern and can read and understand it all. I have tried numerous times get it right. but every time I finish a bootie it looks too tight in the front and a little weird. doesn't look nice and round on the top like yours. it leans and doesn't sit right. any suggestions?

    1. I have the same problem too and the sc decrease stitches sit off to the side.

    3. I too had the same problem. The sides were off to one side. The problem was I did not finish the stitches in the stitch before the chain for rounds 6-22. She has clearly mentioned in the picture how to start and finish the row. Make sure you follow the same.
      Btw, Sarah thanks a lot for the pattern. They look super cute and the instructions are easy to follow even for a beginner like me. Thanks again!!!

  112. do you have sizes for newborn - 3 months and 3months - 6 months
    Thanks

  113. I need help. I must have tried it over a dozen times and it always turn off lobe sided. I think it's my joins.

    I'm using a marker to help me mark my rounds. I mark the loop when I create my chain. I've tried joining at the next loop following my marker and on the maker. It either gets lobe sided or there's not enough lips for me to stitch.

    Please help, I really want to crochet these cute booties!

  114. Hi ! When finished, what is the lenght of the booties ? Thank you !

  116. So I'm having trouble understanding what a "deep" single crochet is. Can anyone help me out please. I've tried to watch the video but I can't get a clear enough view of what is being done. I am new to crocheting but have caught on rather quickly, I just haven't seen or needed to do a "deep single crochet." Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    1. You are basically going over the previous row of sc. Put your hook into the same place as the stitch under it went in; go in at the bottom rather than at the top of the stitch.

  124. Do you make them both the same or is the sole different according to whether it's the left or right boot?

    ReplyDelete
  125. Hi there... first of all, these booties are gorgeous, I absolutely want to crochet them for my girly.... BUT... I have a problem with the size ! I'm using a 4 mm but, I get a half too small size. My daughter is 5 months old, this pattern should fit her, but it doesn't. After watching the video I realise that your yarn looks bigger. I would like to use my yarn...so please, I need your help : how can I increase the sole?

  128. firstly, thank you for sharing these adorable booties pattern. when I decrease, I leave noticeable gaps. it doesn't have a neat smooth finish at the toe as your pics. any tips or feedback on how to achieve your perfection?

    ReplyDelete
  129. Hi Sarah, I love these booties but I'm having a problem. My join seems to move on a stitch with each round, making the sole assymetrical. I think I'm doing the joins exactly as you specify in the photo etc. But the extra stitch at rounds 2-5 seems to be moving my join on. I can work around this by adding extra stitches to one side and subtracting from the other side, but I'd like to know what I doing wrong? Please help if you're still looking at these comments! Or anyone else! Thanks x

  146. It's amazing really but what if I want to make a bigger size for 2years and 5 years old I tried a thicker yarn it's still small please answer me I looked for the answer everywhere nothing helped maybe u can help

    1. think bigger needle and more rows on cuff. thats what I did for a 2 year old. The thicker jarn only makes them heavier. I could be very wrong, but works all time for me.

  149. OK I am having problems with the counts of how many stitches. Like it says 39 or 40 but I don't end where I began I go past that point and then for the cuff 20 stitches I always have a big gap for another 5 stitches or so what am I doing wrong

    ReplyDelete
  150. Well, I finished one. Had to restart like 3 times. It doesn't look near like yours, but it does look like a bootie. :/

  152. Thanks for the pattern!!! This is the first crocheted bootie that looks good and I can actually do!!! (I'm a beginner) I'm sure the booties I made have a few mistakes in them (like not going deep enough for the "deep sc") but they still look cute! Can't wait to make another pair and then send them off to my daughter for her 8 month old twins (boy and girl)!!!

  153. I am having a hard time following your video due to the dark colored yarn you are using,...do you have any other videos that would be better??
