Check out these Simple Crochet Baby Booties! This quick and easy pattern is perfect if you’re expecting or need a last-minute gift for a baby shower.
Keep reading for the story behind these sweet crochet baby booties and the free pattern!
When I was close to the end of my pregnancy with our third baby, I did what all soon-to-be moms with a crochet addiction do and went on a crochet binge!
We had recently moved in with my in-laws as a transition while we waited for our house to sell.
Between my introversion and pregnancy-induced exhaustion, I spent a lot of time in the basement playing with yarn.
I feel the need to mention that my in-laws are awesome. It’s tough going from your own home to someone else’s, ya know?
This pattern was born (haha, pun) from my need to make some simple crochet newborn baby booties that stay on those little feet. Newborns are notoriously wiggly!

I used a worsted weight yarn for these. Acrylic is fine, just pick something nice and soft for those sweet little baby feet.
I don’t recommend cotton because it won’t have much stretch, and these are designed to fit snuggly (more like a sock) so they stay on better.
YARN & NOTIONS
- 1 skein of worsted weight yarn
- I recommend I Love This Yarn! or Knit Picks Brava
- 4.25mm crochet hook
- Large eye needle for finishing

Make 2 baby booties.
Row 1. Make a magic loop, ch 2. Hdc 7 in loop, then tighten loop and join to first hdc. (Chain 2 does NOT count as first stitch)
Row 2. Ch 2, hdc 2 times in each st, join to first hdc.
Rows 3 – 7. Ch 2, hdc in each st, join to first hdc.
Rows 8 – 10. Ch 2, hdc in next 10 sts, turn.
Row 11. Ch 2, hdc in next 3 sts, dc2tog twice, hdc in last 3 sts, turn.
Row 12. Ch 1, sc in next 4 sts, then fold the back of the bootie in half with the right sides facing and sl st seam together.
Row 13. Turn bootie right side out and ch 1.
Now you’ll need to evenly sc 16 around the edge of the bootie as follows: sc 6, sc2tog at corner, sc 2, sc2tog at other corner, sc 6, join to first sc.
Row 14. Ch 2, hdc in each st around, join to first hdc.
Row 15 – 16. Ch 3, dc in each st around, join to first dc.
Row 17. Ch 2, hdc in each st around. Join to first hdc. Finish off.

- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- dc = double crochet
