This is a free crochet pattern for Newborn / Preemie Baby Booties.
Start with crocheting around from toe to the middle of the foot, then crocheted back and forth from the middle sole to the ankle of booties, then joining the sole to form a circle then continue to the leg part of the booties, finishing it off by the cuff.
This pattern is good for beginner who wants to advance their skills by crocheting a small project that could be a gift to all mommies.
I created this pattern to complete our beanie and booties for donation for Fabella Hospital, an outreach program of “Crochet Lovers in the Philippines”.
