This is a relatively quick and easy pattern to crochet baby shoes. All you need is a hook 4.5mm and a small quantity of DK wool. I know these look odd but they are crocheted with camouflage wool :-)
: 2 dc into 3rd ch from the hook, dc into the next 6 ch, 4 dc into final ch. Working on the other side of the ch dc into each chain until last ch, 2 dc into final stitch, join with sl st.
: ch 3, dc into same st, dc twice into next 2 sts, dc in each of the next 6sts, dc twice into next 5 sts, dc into each of the next 6 sts, dc twice in next stitch and then dc 3 times in final st and join with sl st.
: ch 1 sc into same st, sc twice into next 3 sts, sc into next 9 sts, sc twice in next 6 sts, sc into each of the next 9 sts, sc twice into next 6 st, join with sl st.
Side/Top of Shoe
Work into back loop throughout.
: ch 1, sc 1, sk 1, sc1, sk 1, sc into next 9 sts, sc 1, sk 1 8 times, sc into next 9 sts, sc 1, sk 1 to end join with sl st.
: ch 1, sc 1, sk 1 twice, sc next 7 sts, sc 1, sk 1 5 times, sc next 7 sts, sc1, sk 1 to end join with sl st.
Join yarn where you feel appropriate and chain 8 and join at the opposite side. Work back across the ch in sc. Fasten off and sew all ends in.
