Double checked with one change Oct 12/2015
These will fit a 0-3 month infant. or measure approx 3 1/2"
I used worsted weight yarn and a 3.25 mm hook (mine says size D on it).
You will need small amounts of two colors of yarn. about 50 gr of each.
Also you will need two small buttons, and a needle.
The stitches used are:
st(s) = stitches
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
sc2tog= single crochet two together
dc2tog = double crochet 2 together
sl st= slip stitch

FOR RIGHT SHOE ONLY:
Do not break yarn.
ch 15. sc in fourth ch from hook. sc in next 10 sts. attatch to bootie and fasten off using invisible knot. strap made. (the 4 chains on the end of the strap make the button hole. If your button is bigger then ch more than 15 to adjust button hole size.)
FOR LEFT SHOE ONLY:
count back along heel 16 sts. from outside of bootie attach yarn. ch 15. sc in fourth ch from hook. sc in next 10 sts. attach to bootie and fasten off using invisible knot. strap made.
Sew buttons on. Because these are for a baby PLEASE make sure they are fastened securely. We don't want any little ones choking. (I know these are shoes, but you never know)
*because you are using worsted weight yarn, these little booties are quite stiff. Be sure to crochet on the looser side. Also you may use an F hook and get a slightly bigger size, they will fit about a 6 month baby.
