Hi crochet friends!
Today, I’m honored to give you a beautiful bootie ornament pattern that is designed in remembrance of my beautiful baby who was born into the arms of her Savior this past June.
Though I never saw my baby, I knew her. And I’m so thankful that I have been given the gift of knowing that I have a child waiting for me in Heaven. It gives me great comfort and, frankly, makes me significantly less afraid of leaving this world someday.
Those of you who have experienced this loss understand what I mean. So, as part of October Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month, I have teamed up with Simply Hooked by Janet to bring you this beautiful free pattern.
You can get this pattern as a PDF for FREE until Wednesday, October 28th at 9:00AM EST. Click below for the free download!
Enjoy this remembrance keepsake pattern. I hope it gives you the comfort it does me.
Until next time,
Remembrance Baby Bootie Ornament
30-40 grams white light weight yarn (I used Baby Bee Sweet Delight in Angel Pomp)
Purple (or any other color you like) light weight yarn (I used a handspun yarn I had)
3.25mm (D) crochet hook (I love my Clover Hooks!)
Small darning needle for sewing in ends
ch(s) – chain(s)
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
hdc dec – half double crochet decrease
st(s) – stitch(es)
sl st – slip slip stitch
Gauge & Size:
6sc x 8 rows = 1 inch square
Bootie is about 1.5 inches long
- These booties are a miniature size and can fit your standard baby doll.
- The first row will become a round by working in one side of the chain and then continuing onto the other side. The rest of the rows will be considered rounds.
- I highly recommend taking a damp paper towel ripped in half, crumpling it up, and pushing it into the front of each bootie, and allowing it to dry. This will help the bootie keep its shape. You can remove the paper towel after it has dried, and the booties should keep their shape.
- Ch 1 never counts as a stitch.
- Pattern is always working the same direction. There is no turning at the end of each round.
- 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, sl st to join. (36)” means “2 single crochets in the first stitch, single crochet once in the next 4 stitches. Repeat this pattern 6 times, slip stitch in the first stitch of round to join. (There are 36 stitches in this round.)”
Row 1: 2hdc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of next 4 chs, 4hdc in last ch, turn work to crochet on other side of ch, sc in back of next 4 chs, 2hdc in back of last ch, sl st to join. (16)
Round 2: ch 1, 2hdc in first 2 sts, hdc 4, 2hdc in next 4 sts, hdc 4, 2hdc in last 2 sts, sl st to join. (24)
Round 3: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join. (24)
Round 4: ch 1, sc, sc dec, sc 4, hdc dec 6, sc 5, sl st to join. (17)
Round 5: ch 1, sc 6, hdc dec 3, sc 5, sl st to join. (14)
Round 6: ch 1, sc 14, sl st to join. (14)
- Finish off and sew in ends.
- Cut a piece of purple light weight yarn about 8-10 inches and weave through the stitches of round 6.
- Finish off and tie a bow with a double knot.
- Cut a white piece of yarn about 12 inches and tie onto back of booties to join them for an ornament.
Enjoy your beautiful Remembrance Booties keepsake!
