Rainbow Baby Booties

Hi crochet friend!

Uffda! This newest design took me awhile! I don’t know why, but I just couldn’t seem to get the look I wanted for these adorable Rainbow booties!

Thankfully, after 4 failed attempts, I got it. I was determined! So after realizing what I had to do to avoid the flat look, my beautiful Rainbow Baby Booties have turned out just the way I wanted them.

And I’ll be honest here…these booties really make me wish I had a newborn to put them on! I guess my 1 month old niece will just have to do.

The Rainbow Baby Booties are a free crochet pattern for shoes sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. They are also easily adjusted for 12-18 months.

These booties come in 0-3 month, 3-6 month, and 6-12 month sizes. And they can easily be adapted for 12-18 month babies by simply going up a hook size for the 6-12 month pattern. Talk about awesome, right?

So, please enjoy these beautiful little shoes. And don’t forget to make a baby snuggle blanket to match! And maybe a unicorn, too. ;)

 Materials:

  • 50 grams White medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Purple medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Blue medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Green medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Yellow medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Orange medium weight yarn
  • 10 grams Red medium weight yarn
  • 3.75 mm (F) crochet hook
  • Yarn needle for sewing in ends

Stitches:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

sc dec – single crochet decrease (invisible decrease)

hdc dec – half double crochet decrease (invisible half double crochet decrease)

sl st – slip stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

Gauge:

5 sc x 5 rows = 1 inch square

Sizes (based on length):

0-3 months – 3 ½ inches

3-6 months – 3 ¾ inches

6-12 months – 4 ½ inches

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch 1 never equals a stitch, but is ALWAYS a starting chain.
  • There is no “turning” in the pattern. All rows will be worked in the same direction.
  • I highly recommend the seamless color changing method for whenever you switch colors. This technique can be found by clicking here.
  • There is no separate pattern for left and right shoes. They are the same, because they easily stretch to properly fit both feet.
  • There are 3 sizes for this pattern. If you’d like a 12-18 month size, consider going up a hook size to achieve this. The length should be 4 ¾ inches for 12-18 months.
  • Follow the following guide for how the number of stitches is communicated:
    • The number before the stitch is the amount of times worked in one stitch
    • The number after the stitch is the number of stitches you are to work that specific stitch into.
    • When stitches are surrounded by asterisks (*), you are to repeat what is between the asterisks the amount of times stated.
    • Number in parentheses is the number of stitches in each round. 
    • Eg. “*2sc, sc 4* 6 times (36)” means “2 single crochets in the first stitch, single crochet once in the next 4 stitches. Repeat this pattern 6 times. (There are 36 stitches in this round.)
