First of all this is the best directions for a sole pattern ever. Second,I’m new to this boot project and I so want to get it right. On the first round of the boot ,are you saying work the rest of the project in back loops only? Please excuse my ignorance .

I am working on the boot right now but have noticed that the picture shows single crochet while the pattern is asking for double crochet. Am I doing it wrong?

First i would like to say a great big thank you. Super cute and super easy, love, love, love it. I am still a novice and am a little confused with the instructions for row 8 and the 4 SC into sides of sts. I tried to google how to do it, but was unsuccessful. Could you offer a little more description for this please. Thabks again.

Sorry for asking what is probably an obvious question, but what kind of yarn did you use? I’m assuming sport or DK since the hook is so small, but I want to be sure.

Thanks for the super cute pattern!

Cheers,

Hi. I seem to still be having trouble with R3. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The pattern is so adorable, I don’t want to NOT make the booties for a baby boy coming into the family (very) soon! Thanks in advance!

Hi there , love the booties , they are adorable . (:
Had a quick question , since it says its for 3-6 months , do you think switching to worsted weight yarn with maybe a size G or F hook would make it fit a 6-9 month old ? Or would that make it too big ?

I would like to make these boots, but I am a bit confused. The boots pictured are done in single crochet stitches and the pattern says double crochet. Do you have the pattern for the boots pictured? Please and thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

After printing the instructions out, without the photos. Can I make a suggestion to your instructions? If the color changes for the next round, even though it says new yarn, I didn’t change color, so I suggest add new yarn color for the new round. I have one almost finished, and it’s one color after the sole……

Can I be the third person to ask you to please, please, please write up the hat pattern? I’m quite a newbie to this whole crochet thing: I can follow written directions pretty well (video, even better) and have learned all my basic stitches, but as far as looking at something and having any clue how to make it, that’s still way beyond my expertise.

Hi, can you tell me if you stich into the first stich that the slip stich was made onto? Also, do you include the slip stitch at the end as a stitch when counting? I had made another her pair of baby booties and the pattern used the first stitch as the one that was slipped into but didn’the count the slip stitch as a stitch at the end. Thank you for any clarification that you can provide.

Sorry, my recent question wasn’the clear. Do you crochet into the stitch that the slip stitch was made into? The other question was clear I think. Thanks.

Hi Jessie, i’m lost on the star. It has directions for one ‘arm’ then skip stitch and slip stitch into the next 5 stitches and tie off. Should that be sc 5 times into next stitch? Then repeat R 1? Thank you for your help, I tried to problem solved but I’m relatively new to reading patterns.

I just kept playing with it and decided to slip stitch in the chain after the skipped stitch and make the arm off of that. Looks decent. โ˜บ

I am so glad I found these, so adorable. Am I reading it right- use 2 strand of medium wt. yarn and use a D hook, or can you use worsted wt. yarn and use a D size hook?

Any suggestions on how to increase the stitching to accommodate toddler sizes? Specifically, 2 & 3 year old, normal shoe size 7 & 8. I know how to do the sole to fit these two toddler sizes just not sure how to build up the actual boot part to accommodate the sole size.
