Easy Booties Baby Crochet Pattern

Easy Crochet Booties Pattern, This fast technique would ensure an equal size and shape of booties. you do not need to worry about tension or having mismatch baby booties again.

Have you ever attempted a seemingly Easy baby booties Pattern and ended up with different size of Booties? Many People find making Baby Booties intimidating with much difficulties and frustration getting same shape and size of Booties. I have been in same situation and have attempted different techniques, adjusted my Tension but it only helped a little.

Easy Crochet Booties Pattern, This fast technique would ensure an equal size and shape of booties. you do not need to worry about tension or having mismatch baby booties again.

It was so much excitement designing Booties in another technique. This time, not starting with the sole but worked flat, yes I now make mine in rows and join the sides together once completed.

Things I’ve tried doing in order to archive an equal baby booties pattern in the past includes –

– Working on both booties at once, yes, It worked but quite stressful. I would crochet a row/round on each pair each. I found this to help with my tension, as such I had similar shapes and size for my Booties. You could try this technique when next you see a booties you love to make.

– I’ve also tried to perfect my crochet techniques to make sure my Tension was fairy similar and it was helpful getting same size and shape of booties.

But what happens to the lady who is yet to perfect her tension? Or to the new mom who is constantly tending to her newborn child? This new technique of making your own crochet booties in Flat would make all the difference and you do not need to master any new skills.

Now, you do not need to work the same pair at a sitting or attempt having the same tension to have the same size and shape of Booties. Even a first-timer would be able to make these Booties.

After so many emails from those who were bought my patterns and were so grateful as this technique of making their booties in flat saved them hours, I’ve also included a pattern for the boys! Be on the look out for more fashionable booties and shoes for both mum and babies. To be the first to know, do subscribe to my email, link below.

One Skein Shawl Pattern- Shanae Wrap

It’s a great privilege to have Bernadine here on the blog with her one skein shawl pattern, the Shanae wrap! She is the talented designer behind Menmyhook.

If you have been looking for a classy, easy crochet shawl with a beautiful stitch pattern, her Shanae Wrap is your go-to pattern! The fact that this pattern is easy to make, uses basic crochet stitches, and that it’s a repeat of basic rows makes this wrap my favorite! This would make a fabulous gift for yourself (when was the last time you made something for yourself?) or for your loved ones.

One Skein Crochet wrap pattern

Inspiration

Really excited to share my latest design with you – thank you Susan for inviting me.  The Shanae wrap is a design I sort of imagined last year but didn’t do anything with it.  I love shawls and wraps, and I haven’t made one in a while so it was the first choice of things to design and share.

Shanae, like all my shawl and scarf designs this year, are named after female members of my family.  This is an easy beginner wrap pattern that works up really quickly.  I wanted to include something stylish, easy to make and with wide appeal hopefully I have achieved that with this design.  I get asked alot – who wears scarves and shawls these days – erm I do.  This can be worn as a scarf, shoulder wrap, head scarf if you know how to wrap it, sarong – the choice is yours.

If you would like to buy the premium, ad-free copy of the pattern you can check it out here on Ravelry or Etsy. The pattern is currently 25% off through 7th of March, no code needed.

If you love the Shanae wrap, you might also love the following patterns;

  2. Crochet Pocket Shawl with detachable Hood

One Skein Shawl – FREE easy rectangle shawl pattern 

Pattern is written in US crochet terms.  

Skill level: Beginner –  Easy

Yarn: 1 x Hobbii Twister, or Scheepjes Whirl or similar in any colour

Hook: 4mm, or whatever size you need to achieve gauge 

Size: 16in x 68in 

Gauge: 5 repeats x 10 rows = 4″

Gauge – I am not a slave to it so please don’t feel like you need to be.  I have included a gauge and final size in the instructions but it is more important that you have uniform fairly tight stitch work rather than stick to my gauge.  An inch either way will not make a difference to the final result.  If you decide to stick with the Twister or similar and your stitches are a bit loose – go down a half, or maybe a whole size depending on which hooks you have to hand.  I am a fairly tight crocheter so the smallest hook I use with this type of yarn is 4mm.

Stitches used:

Double Crochet – dc

Chain – ch(s)

Skip – sk

Stitch – st(s)

Special Stitches:

Fan – (2dc, ch1, 2dc) in the next st 

Open Shell – (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) in the next space

Notes: 

  • This wrap is worked from the bottom up
  • Ch3 – counts as a dc 

Instruction:

Chain 95

Row 1:

Fan (see special stitches) in the 5th ch from the hook – (ch4 counts as dc and ch1), [sk3, fan in the next st], repeat until 2 sts remain, ch1, sk1, dc in the last st.  Turn

Row 3:

Ch3, sk dc and ch1 sp, fan in the next dc, [fan in the mid dc of the next open shell], repeat until the last open shell, dc in the last dc.  Turn

Final row:

Tie off and secure your ends.

Blocking* will open the stitch pattern further, and increase the size of this wrap 1-2 ins

* If this is your first time blocking – I wet-block my wraps.  I washed it on the lowest setting in the machine and then pin it out using blocking pins and my son’s foam playmats.  I have used my drawing pins when I didn’t have enough blocking pins in the past.

That’s it – a super simple wrap that is really effective in any color.  I hope you enjoyed this one skein shawl pattern, and look forward to seeing your Shanae Wraps.  Do tag me with your makes using my social media handles listed below.

About the Designer

crochet headband Pattern

Hi, I’m B, mum to two mini’s, shoe lover, armchair sports fan, collector of random useless bits of information, and designer at Me n My Hook.  I hate talking about myself and taking photos which the pic probably shows!  I crochet mostly as a way to relax and have some mental health time.  Generally, my designs are inspired by the need for a gift OR the desire to glam up some corner of my house.  That is really 99% of the reason why I start making something.  Crochet is one of the few creative arts that I consider myself to be remotely good at, and it’s an outlet that allows me to create pretty things I can be proud of and display in my home or gift.  My aim at Me n My Hook is to empower others to do the same.

To find out more, come to hang out with me in my Facebook group – I’ll be the one hiding behind gifs, pics of my cute kid, lots of blue, green, and purple wips, and not showing my face!

It’s been fun, hope to see you and your Shanae Wraps soon,
