Sweetheart Baby Booties: Free Crochet Baby Booties Pattern

Crochet baby booties are a great addition to any gift set. They’re quick to make and even a simple pattern can be used in so many ways. I used a simple pattern to make these crochet baby booties and although the pink and cream are perfect for baby girls, you can easily change up the colors to make these for baby boys too.

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!

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).

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.
