Ridged Baby Booties ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

It took having a baby to finally design a wearable baby item that wasn’t a hat. I knew, as much as I love baby toes, that my littlest one needed to keep those piggies warm! And that’s when this free baby booties crochet pattern took form!

  1. Hi..
    I want to try these super cute pattern for my new baby..
    Just want to know,what do you mean by ‘each stitch is worked in 3rd loop’?
    Thanks a lot for the pattern????

    1. Hello,

      If you’re looking at the top of your stitch, you’ll see the front loop and the back loop. Behind the back loop is another horizonal bar. That’s the 3rd loop ???? Please let me know if you have any further questions!

      Best regards, Crystal

      3rd Loop

      1. Hello. I’m not sure where the issue is. The 2nd round should have 38. The 3rd round decreases by 8 stitches which would be 30 stitches total. Could you please email me a picture of this round at [email protected] so I may better assist?
        Thank you,

  2. Hi , Could you please explain what is meant by the 2 lots of stitches bracketed in rows 3-5 ie:- ( hdc in the next { 11, 12 } , {6 , 9 } stitches ??? Bootee section row 3 . Thank-you , Jeanette .

    1. Hello. Those brackets, as stated in the pattern key, are how many stitches to work according to which size you’re making. The first number is the smaller size, whereas the second is the larger size. They’re also color coded for ease of keeping track of which size you’re working up. Hope this helps!

  3. Hello. Thanks for the cute pattern! I have one question… I haven’t joined to finished work with a slip stitch for a while and wonder if the little knot from the slip knot is supposed to show on the bottom of the sole. I can’t figure out how to hide it. Is it possible?

    1. Hello,

      You could work around continuously, using a stitch marker to mark the first and last stitch, and not join reach round.

      Hope that helps,

  4. Beautiful little booties 🥰🥰🥰
    Perfect for going through my stash of leftover yarn 🧶
    Just finished making two pairs and I have to say your instructions are super clear. Thank you for sharing your pattern. 💕💕💕
