Crocheting for little ones that are on the way? Or maybe you like to do good deeds and make them to donate. Handmade baby gifts are by far the best. I have done the footwork of finding the BEST 10 crochet patterns for baby booties on the net. Some of these I have tested myself, and some I have tried other patterns of theirs before.
As a special note, I want to let all of my beginners out there know that if you are making booties for small babies, I strongly suggest using baby yarn. All craft stores sell baby yarn, and it is the softest thing for a baby’s skin. Some of my favorites are Vanna’s Baby Yarn and Simply Soft Caron. I also want to let my readers in on an awesome secret of mine. If there is a stitch I am having trouble with or a question I may need answered, I always go to YouTube. There are so many crochet videos out there, and it is learning at your leisure.
Happy Crocheting Everyone!
