I received a ton of requests for this pattern, so here it is! Simple to make, these crochet baby booties make the perfect gift for new mothers!
For reference, the size of the sole should be as follows:
0-3month = 3 to 3.5 inches
3-6month = 3.5 to 4 inches
6-9month = 4 to 4.5 inches
If you find that the sole of your bootie is too big or too small, you can adjust by decreasing or increasing your hook size, respectively. You can also make the next size up/down!
Size differences are noted in the pattern with (0-3mo, 3-6mo, 6-9mo)
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
BLO = back loops only
inc = increase
dec = decrease
