Crochet baby shoes - free pattern

Pin It
I completed this pattern few months ago but found time to post only now. The baby shoes pattern is written for 3 sizes (newborn to 1 year). You can embellish it however you want. I used buttons. If you are using buttons or beads please be careful. Don't leave the babies unattended because buttons and beads may pose a choking hazard for smaller kids. It's safer to embroider designs or sew on appliques on the shoes or just leave them plain.

Before going to the pattern I would like to introduce you to the latest pattern available in my shops- The Eliza baby dress pattern. This cute little dress pattern is available in 2 sizes - 3 to 6 months and 6 to 12 months. 



This pattern is available in my Etsy, Ravelry and Wix stores.



Coming back to the baby shoes, the pattern is written in standard American terms. The pattern is written for the newborn size, changes for other sizes are given within parenthesis - green for 3-6 months and red for 6-12 months
