FREE PATTERN: Bow Baby Booties (larger size)

I was asked to make these bow baby booties in a bigger size, so while I was at it I decided to write the pattern down! Here it is:

Materials:
US H (5.00mm) crochet hook
WW yarn (I used Loops and Threads Impeccable, but any WW yarn will work)
Tapestry needle

Special Stitches:
sc-2-tog - (insert hook into next stitch, pull up a loop) 2 times, yarn over and pull hook through all 3 loops
dc-2-tog - (yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops) 2 times, yarn over, pull through all 3 loops on hook.
dc-3-tog - (yarn over, insert hook into next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops) 3 times, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Boots (make 2)
Ch 14.
1. Hdc in 2nd chain from hook and in next 11, 3 hdc in last chain (working in backside chains), hdc in next 11 chains, 2 hdc in last chain, sl st to first stitch.
2. Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as joining, hdc in next 11, 2 hdc in next 3, hdc in next 12, 2 hdc in last 2, sl st to ch-2 space.
3. Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as joining, 2 hdc in next 3, hdc in next 8, 2 hdc in next 8, hdc in next 13, 2 hdc in last 2, sl st to ch-2 space.
4. (back loops only) ch 2, hdc in each st around, sl st to ch-2 space.
5. Ch 2, sc in next 14, sc-2-tog, dc-2-tog 2 times, dc, dc-3-tog, dc, dc-2-tog 2 times, sc-2-tog, sc around, sl st to ch-2 space.
6. Ch 2, sc in next 13, sc-2-tog, dc-2-tog 4 times, sc-2-tog, sc around, sl st to ch-2 space.
7. Ch 2, sc in next 11, sc-2-tog, dc-2-tog 2 times, sc-2-tog, sc around, sl st to ch-2 space.
8. Ch 2, sc in next 11, sc-2-tog, sc around, sl st to ch-2 space.
9. ch2, sc 10, sc-2-tog, sc around, sl st to ch2 space.
10-13: Ch 2, sc around, sl st to ch-2 space.
 For a taller boot, repeat the last row as many times as you need to. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Bows (make 2)
1.Ch 24, sc in 2nd ch from the hook and in the next 22.
2-4: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each stitch across.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. Fold the rectangle in half and, using the long tail that you left, stitch all the way around the bow so that you have a smaller rectangle. Then cut a long piece of yarn and wrap it around the middle of the rectangle tightly. 

Sew the bow onto the boot and you're done! This larger version ended up about 4.5-5", without stretching. You can find the free pattern for the smaller booties here.

I also sell this larger size in my etsy store! Check it out for more pictures of the booties.

As with the smaller version, please don't sell the pattern itself, but you are welcome to sell items made from this free pattern. If you sell the finished product online, please credit my etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jkwatson?ref=si_shop 


Thanks! I hope you enjoy this free pattern!

  1. Hi there! Love your blog :-) I'm having a bit of trouble with this pattern. Is the row done in the back loops supposed to come right across the front of the foot? Are there any other photos of the booties? Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Laura! I am actually thinking of doing a step-by-step tutorial of these booties sometime soon, with pictures and everything :) Once I do, that might help clear up any confusion. But for pictures, you can see my smaller size of these booties, Bow Baby Booties. These will look the exact same, just in a bigger size. Hope that helps!

  3. I'm also having an issue with these, the opening for the foot seems so large, not like the photo of the smaller ones. Maybe I am missing something? It seems like I might not be doing enough 2-tog stitches?

I do have a boots pattern in my etsy shop that has a verrry step by step tutorial (with photos of every step) so if you want to try that and stick a bow on it instead of ruffles, here's the link:
