To help mommies, aunties, grandmas and friends crochet something simple cut adorable for any new baby in the family, I created this extremely easy crochet baby bootie pattern.

I promise is so easy as making 2 rectangles and sewing the sides! And that’s it really.

  1. Your instructions are great but one suggestion – tone down your background music it tends to drown you out. You are competing with the music.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I try to keep it down, but I think my software is making the music louder than just making it a soft background music. I might have to eliminate music altogether, oh well!

    1. Because babies grow, and the smaller size is for newborn to 6 months old baby, and the next one would fir babies that are 6 months old to 12 months old (1 year)
      I am trying to give everyone options. That’s all

    2. Hi Your pattern for the booties seem so easy but when I tried I got confused with the no of stiches
      In the 1st size we had to do 29 stiches and then dc in the next row then I get 28 stiches Can u pls put at the end of the row how many stiches we should have as after 9 rows when I have to do the 16stiches and leave 7 stiches on either side my stiches dont add up

      1. Hi Kala!
        I just updated the pattern with stitch counts. The reason it didn’t add up is because there was a typo. Thank you very much for leaving a comment, this allowed me to find it, and now the pattern was corrected.

        1. Hi Mary Thank you so much I did not expect such a prompt reply I am so happy and so impressed as Now I know my booties wont look lopsided!!!!

    1. You can, but it could end up a bit bigger. To have the same size, you can do a swatch to determine what hook is best, and so achieve the same size with a different yarn.

  2. I don’t have an E hook, will it be too bad if I use the G hook I have? I live in a little town, and my walmart has very few crochet pieces. I’m expecting my newest niece or nephew tomorrow and trying to get started. Large feet tend to run in my family, so would it be okay to continue with the G hook or switch to the F hook, I do have an F. I think I meant to use it and got off with the G instead.

    1. Sorry the page wasn’t loading properly for me. I realise now you have 2 sizes! Sorry! Such cute booties and easy for work up!

      1. Yes, the pattern is for 2 sizes, but I only made the video with one size, since the changes are mainly fewer or more stitches, and the constructions stays almost the same. 🙂

    1. It sure can. Just make bigger rectangles. If you have them close, measure their feet, and add an inch or so to the final measurement and you should be ok.

  3. Where do I go to be able to print out the pattern???? I need to print it out so I can sit in my recliner & make these Cute booties.

    1. Sorry, I don’t have a printable version for this pattern. But after the weekend I can create a PDF so you can print it 🙂
      Just leave your email and I will send you a copy, or you can check back later.

  4. Thank you for the pattern.
    I am wondering about making this smaller for preemies?
    Do you think it would work if I changed the yarn to a 4ply and a 3mm or 2.75mm hook?
    I’ve been asked to make some smaller booties.

    1. Changing yarn and hook size will definitely change the size of the final bootie. I think it can work. Good luck with your project 🙂

  5. Hi! I love your tutorial. I’m doing a project making booties for babies i work with in hospital so I’m using yarn and hooks people have. Do you know the size of the rectangles in cms or inches to use as a guide to accommodate different hooks and yarns?

    1. Thank you!
      Yes, 7 inches for newborn babies, 9 inches for 6 to 12-month-old babies.
      It seems a little big, but remember that you will be folding the rectangle in half. The top rectangle just needs to be a bit smaller, since is more of a decoration, and since it’s open, it won’t really affect the fit of the booties, so you can’t go wrong if you don’t get them exactly to a certain size. Hope that was helpful.

  6. I enjoy watching the videos I will be getting my stuffs to get her and start crocheting thanks for sharing and continue the good work that you are doing
