Free Crochet Pattern for Baby Boots – Baby Ugg

Free Crochet Pattern for Baby Boots - baby ugg

This is a free crochet pattern for baby boots that are inspired by baby ugg.

These crochet baby boots are worked in spiral rounds without joining. They start at the sole and are worked up to the cuff. Ties are added by surface crocheting around the ankle.

Sizes: Small (Large) to fit 2-6 month (6-12 month).

MATERIALS

Yarn: Super Bulky Weight

Shown in Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (50% wool, 50% acrylic; 90 yds [82 m]/4.5 oz [127 g]).

Hook: Use hook necessary to achieve correct gauge. Sample was made using US size J/10 (6.0 mm).

Notions: Yarn needle.

Gauge: 7 sts and 5 rows = 2.5″ in hdc. Different gauge will result in a different size of the finished object and will affect amount of yarn used.

Note: Those boots is meant to be worked at a tight gauge. J/10 (6.0 mm) hook is a fairly small size for the super bulky weight yarn, which will help to create a tight gauge.

Stitches used: Ch – chain, hdc – half double crochet, sc – single crochet, hdc2tog – half double crochet next two stitches together.
