-Scissors.

-Stitch markers (If you don’t have stitch markers, you can use your extra loose yarn ends. I used my excess loose yarn ends on video tutorial

-1 skein Big Twist Rainbow Classic 100% Acrylic Yarn color Serene Blue. You will have plenty of yarn left over.

On YouTube video tutorial, I show how to crochet 2 different sizes: up to 12 months and 3-6 months. I will also show both sizes on this written pattern. I will start with the smaller crochet baby bootie, and show the differences with the larger bootie.

SMALLER SOLE: I started with Royal Blue Colored Yarn.

-Ch14. Starting ch. (***Larger Sole was a ch20 Starting chain)

-Make 3dc into the 4th ch from the hook, then 1dc into the next 2 stitches, 1hdc into the next st., 1dc into the next 3 stitches, 1 tr into the next 3 stitches, (***Larger sole is 1tr in next 6 st), 9tr into the last st. Working in rounds, turn your work to make crochet stitches on the opposite side of your starting chain. Make 1tr into the next 3 stitches (***Larger sole is 1tr in next 6 st), then 1dc into the next 3 stitches, 1hdc into the next st, and 1 dc into the next 2 st, then 3dc into the last st, which is the same st your first 3dc were made. Slst into the top st of the first ch3 that you made. (34 total) (***Larger sole 46 total)

***This is the time that you can measure the sole of your baby shoe, and determine if it is the correct size, before you continue on. Use your free downloadable PDF baby bootie sizing chart to compare it to. When you look at my Larger Sole differences, you will see where I made changes in the size of my initial ch, and in the crochet stitches to alter the size. That way you will see how you can alter the stitches in the sole to get different sole sizes for your baby bootie.

-Using your stitch markers: Place a stitch marker in the following stitches: 5,6,13,14,17,18,29,30, and 33. (***Larger sole stitch markers: 7,9,22,25,26,40,42,47)

-Place your yarn marker before starting your next round (To help keep track of the rounds and stitch count). Make 1sc into the next st and every st around, except for the stitches that contain a stitch marker. Place 2sc into the same st that contains a st marker. Slst into the top st of the first ch3 that you made. Double check your stitch count before going on further. (43 total) (***Larger sole 54 total)

-Move your yarn marker up. Make 1sc into every st around for 3 rounds. (43 total) (***Larger sole is same st count as previous round, unless otherwise specified).

Decrease rounds– Your decrease stitches should be centered around the front of the bootie.

-Make 1sc into 9 stitches, then make 10 hdc2tog stitches. Make 1sc into each of the remaining stitches. (33 total) (***Larger sole: Make 1sc in 17 st, then 12 hdc2tog total st count 42)

-Make 1sc into 9 stitches, then make 6 hdc2tog stitches. Make 1sc into each of the remaining stitches. (27 total) (***Larger sole: Make 1sc in 13st then 8 hdc2tog total st count 34)

-Make 1sc into 9 stitches, then make 3 hdc2tog stitches. Make 1sc into each of the remaining stitches. (24 total) (***Larger sole: Make 1sc into 12 st then 5 hdc2tog total st count 29)

Join your new color, and cut your previous colored yarn. Bury your loose yarn ends as you crochet. I used Serene Blue.

For the next round, we are going to start our first crochet wave stitch design with our new color. Wave Stitch Rounds:

-Make 2sc into the next st, then make 1sc into the next 3 st, then make 1dc into the next 5 st. *Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. (25 total) (***Large Sole 30 total) **You should have ended this round with 1sc in 5 stitches. (***Large Sole will end the round with 1dc in 5 stitches). The wave st requires a multiple of 5 or 10. The small sole has a multiple of 5, which is “25” and the large sole has a multiple of 10, which is “30.” You have just completed the bottom portion of the wave st.

-*Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches (Each sc st should be in the previous rows sc st), then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches (Each dc st should be in the previous rows dc st). Slst into the next st. (25 total) **You have just completed the top portion of the wave st. You should have completed 2.5 waves in the round. (***Larger sole has 3 total waves in the round.) Join your new color, and cut your previous colored yarn. Bury your loose yarn ends as you crochet. I used Royal Blue. For the next round, we are going to start our second crochet wave stitch design with our new color.

Wave Stitch Rounds: We are going to alternate our wave pattern. Since we started with sc for our last wave pattern, we will start with a dc for our second wave pattern.

-Ch3 (This ch3 should be directly over the previous rows first sc), make 1dc into the next 4 st. *Make 1sc into the next 5 st, and then make 1dc into the next 5 st. Repeat from * Slst into the top st of the first ch3 that you made (25 total) **Each dc will line up with the previous rows sc, and each sc will line up with the previous rows sc. You have just completed the bottom portion of the wave st.

-Ch3, make 1dc into the next 4st. *Make 1sc into the next 5 st, and then make 1dc into the next 5st. Repeat from* Slst into the top st of the first ch3 that you made.

Your anchor appliqué is now ready to be sewn on your Crochet Wave of Love Baby Booties. Line up the anchor on the front of your baby bootie. I started sewing the loop of the anchor first, sewed down the center of the anchor, lined up the bottom of the anchor (make sure it isn’t crooked), sewed the bottom of the anchor in place, and then sewed the anchor chain in place. There is a separate video tutorial for the Crochet Waves of Love Baby Hat, Security Blanket, and Baby Blanket.
