These crochet baby shoes are such great photo props, looks unbelievably cute on a little ones feet. They are not ideal for walking, but work best as crib shoes.
Before beginning to work on these shoes it is important to consider the type of wool you would want to be using. You dont want to use some thing that is super fine for the sole, my recommendation would be to use a bit bulkier Acrylic yarn for the sole, or a cotton yarn.
Another great tip when you don’t have these yarn would be to crochet with two strands of the same color for the sole. Because a sole for the show needs to stay flat/sturdy for the shoe to look put together.
So lets get to the crochet baby shoes pattern for 6 month olds.
Items you’ll need
- Bulky yarn for the sole
- Two different color yarns for the top of the shoe.
- Hook : 3.5mm
- Stitch markers
- Tapestry needle
ch – Chain
sl st – Slip stitch
sc – Single crochet
inc – Make two single crochets in the same stitch
dec – Combine two stitches into one single crochet
hdc – Insert hook, pull the yarn. Now, there’s three loops on your hook. Pull the yarn through all three loops.
[stitch] * ‘n’ times – repeat the stitches between the  n times.
- Make the sole first.
- Crochet the back bit onto the sole.
- Separately crochet the top part of the shoe.
- SC it to the shoe.
