    I love this pattern so much! Thanks for sharing. Definitely my favorite pair of booties that I’ve ever made. They turned out so cute! Can’t express that enough πŸ™‚ thanks again.

    • Paula says:

      Woohoo! I’m so happy to hear you say that! You are welcome and I’m glad my design is your favorite! You’ve made my day so thank you. πŸ™‚

  2. Taylor says:

    Love this pattern! just made a pair of green ones for my nephew (: he’s already growing out of them though, so I was wondering how would I (or where, really) add stitches in order to make a bigger pair? Thanks!

    • Paula says:

      Thank you Taylor. To make a bigger pair you can use thicker yarn and a larger sized hook.

  3. Stacey says:

    Thank you for sharing your pattern. I made these last night using both your pattern and video. Your instructions were very clear and the video was very very helpful. The booties turned out wonderful! Thanks again.

    • Paula says:

      Hello Stacey,
      You’re welcome. It’s always great to hear that both the pattern and video tutorial has been helpful. I’m glad your booties turned out wonderful, thank you for letting me know! πŸ™‚

  4. Beverley Denman says:

    I adore this pattern. I have made smaller, and larger, by following your suggestion of changing hook size and yarn thickness. I would, however, love to make a pair for myself, so is it possible to help me with the pattern adjustments, please? I don’t think they make hooks large enough to create an adult boot…

    Thanks….very cool booties!

  5. sharon says:

    Hi paula I too started crocheting when I was 10. I love your pattern. I want to know am I allowed to make the booties for sale on Etsy thanks

    • Paula says:

    • Paula says:

  7. vera says:

    Hi, Paula… this is my first time to make a booties n i really like this pattern ^^ i just made it n really love it.. but a bit confused about the stitches if i wanna make a bigger size.. is there any suggestion for that? thank u very much..

    • Paula says:

      Hello Vera, Thank you for liking my pattern. If you’d like a bigger size you can always use a larger crochet hook and thicker yarn.

  8. Amanda says:

    I want to do these booties to test out the ability I have in reading the shorthand of the crocheting world. I was wondering, in between the first round and the second round, you say trim the yarn tail off, then in the second round you say do 2 hdc into the same sp you did the sl st. I was wondering if you mean fasten off and then do them or, if not, how do I add them into the same spot lol, just a little confused is all.

    • Paula says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Where I say trim the tail off, that’s the end of the yarn tail that you worked over when you worked the first round, no I don’t mean finish off. Hope this helps!

  9. Katy says:

    Hi Paula!

  18. Rita says:

    Hi Paula

    I really love the video for this chunky baby booties. But I need to make a bigger size.
    How do I increase the size? Thank you for helping me out.


    • Paula says:

      Hi Rita, you can make larger sizes by increasing the size of your crochet hook.

  19. Robyn says:

    I’ve been trying to make this for so long, don’t no what I’m doing wrong. You make it look so easy. I’m not giving up yet!

  20. Lisag says:

    I tried a couple of patterns before this one without any success. I used sirdar big softy super chunky and a 6.5 hook and I am so pleased with the results! Will definitely be making another pair shortly. Thank you so much for your clear and easy instructions. You are a star!

    • Paula says:

      Hello Lisag, Thanks for letting me know your booties came out great. Have fun making your next pair and thank you for the compliment!

  21. Tiffany says:

    Hey how would you determine the numbers if this is being made for a 10cm foot vs a 8cm foot? For example, when it says dc2og 5 times how would I know how to convert it to an 10cm foot? Plz help!

    • Paula says:

      Instead of changing the pattern I would use a larger hook.

  22. Piya says:

    Dear Paula,

    I just finished making a pair of these booties for a friend of mine who is due on 25 December. I can’t wait to give these to her. Your instructions were very easy and clear to follow. This was my first time making baby booties and I am surprised how well they came out. I am going to make one more pair for a 6 month old baby and one for my own baby, (I am expecting my first baby in May). Thank you so much for helping me full fill my desire to make stuff for my baby.


  23. Angy says:
