Sweetheart Crochet Baby Booties Pattern

by Shehla Ahmed

Most of us crochet for others, making things as gifts and requests and all the snuggly things to keep our families warm. I love gifting crochet baby booties. They’re quick to make and even a simple pattern can be used in so many ways. They also just make a nice little addition to a gift set. I used a simple pattern to make these crochet baby booties and although the pink and cream are perfect for Valentine’s Day and baby girls, you can easily change up the colors to make these for baby boys too.


Crochet baby booties pattern


These sweetheart booties are made for babies 0-3 months old. They can be made in one piece using just one color if you like, or you can try out different combinations for the sole and the top of the booties. The little bow on the front of these booties is just a spare length of matching yarn that I tied around the stitch post, but you can customize these any way you like. Or, you could even add little crochet roses or a pretty button to finish them off.



The full free pattern is written out below. For those who’d prefer to print the pattern and take it with you for on-the-go and to markup as you go, you can buy the inexpensive printable PDF from my Etsy and Ravelry shops. The PDF is formatted without ads or comments, so it’s easy to read.

Sweetheart Crochet Baby Booties





Round 1: With the pink yarn, chain 11. Starting in the second space from the hook, HDC 9. Work 5 HDC into the next space. Next, you’ll be working through the loops on the other side of the foundation chain. HDC 8, then work 2 HDC into the last space. Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round (24 stitches).

Round 2: Work 2 HDC into the next space, HDC 9, 2 HDC into each of the next 5 spaces, then HDC 9 to the end of the round (30).

Round 3: Ch 1, HDC into the same space. HDC in each space around (31).




Round 4: Switch to cream yarn and SC through the back loops only (31), then slip stitch to the first space.

Round 5: HDC around.



Round 6: SC 12, * HDC decrease once, then HDC into the next* 3 times, SC 11 to the end of the round (28).

Round 7: SC 12, then DC decrease 3 times, SC 11 (25).

Round 8: Slip stitch all the way around, and then bind off. Then, weave in the tail ends of the yarn and trim the excess yarn.



Lastly, I took 4 inches of the same pink as the sole of these crochet baby booties and just tied it around the two stitches at the front of the toe. I tied it into a little bow and used a drop of hot glue to secure the knot in place and make sure it wouldn’t open. Then, I trimmed the tails of the bow so they were even.



Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed this pattern! I would love to see your version of these booties so tag me on IG (@_theblueelephants) if you make them.
