“Good book for anyone who needs a choice of booties” August 1, 2010

I needed to make some baby gifts quick and I found what I needed in this book with bootie patterns to crochet for both boys and girls.

I intend to use it to keep gifts on hand so I will be prepared next time. I love the choices.

  1. Mary Jane Hall says:

    The baby booties are just adorable, Paula! How have you been?

    • Paula says:

      Thanks Mary Jane, I’m doing well thank you! πŸ™‚

    • Lajla says:

      Paula! I am watching you from Bosnia and Herzegovina. You are amazing! I am begginer in this, I would like to learn the same but for adults. Can you post it on youtube?

      • Paula says:

        Hello Lajla!! Welcome to Crochet Hooks You! Wow, that’s interesting to hear you are watching my videos from Bosnia. Thanks for your lovely comment. I will put it on my to-do list to make an adult version video tutorial of these booties. πŸ™‚

  2. LeAnn says:

    Hello, these are just what I was looking for! Cute as a bug! Thank you for the pattern.

  3. Alycia says:

    these booties are the cutest i’ve seen! thank you for the helpful video too. i’ve been searching youtube for 3 days and still had yet to find one that clearly made sense. πŸ™‚

    • Paula says:

      Thanks very much, Alycia! I’m happy to hear you found the video helpful too. Wow, a 3 day search for a clear pattern and video on booties sounds like a long search! Thankfully, you found my crochet toffee apple baby booties to satisfy your needs. πŸ™‚

  4. Fatma says:

    First of all, many many many thanks Paula.. Your instructions are very clear and great. I love your video tutorials. I have a question to you as a more experienced crocheter than I. How can I adapt this pattern to create a bigger size?

    • Paula says:

      Hi Fatma,

      Thanks very much, I’m glad you can understand my instructions. You can adapt this pattern by using a larger crochet hook.

      3.5mm hook for 3-6 mths old
      4mm hook for 6-9 mths old
      5mm hook for 9-12 mths old

  5. Jackie says:

    Hi Paula!

    I’m from the Philippines and I’m gonna be a mom next year (after 3 years of waiting).

    Thank you so much for this tutorial/pattern πŸ™‚ I am so glad to find your website and videos, they are really very helpful. I could learn easily from them.

    Sadly though, the common yarn available here in our country is the acrylic one. Sometimes if you’re lucky you can find cotton yarn being sold by local suppliers online. I think there’s only one or two shops here in Manila who sells around 5 types of yarns which are imported (and a bit pricey).

    What kind of yarn would you recommend for a tropical country like ours?

    Again, thank you for sharing your knowledge in crocheting!

    • Paula says:

      That’s exciting you’ll be a new mom next year!!

      I’m glad you like my tutorials and patterns.

      Seen as you can’t get the types of yarn that we get here the only thing I can think of is that you can order some online and have it sent to you.

      I hope this helps.

  6. Arwa says:

    hi Poula,
    depending on fatmas que how did the size of the hook could vary the size of the booties?

    • Paula says:

      The larger the hook the larger the bootie will be.

  7. I love the colours you have used for the booties, they look so cute!

    • Paula says:

      Thank you, I wanted to make them look as ‘toffee apple’ as I could. πŸ™‚

  8. Cindy says:

    I loved these booties! I have been crocheting for a couple of months and all the other booties I’ve tried to make never come out good! These were easy with the video turorial! thank you very much. I used green, red and white for Christmas! I would love to show you a pic but I don’t know how to put a pic up here.

  9. vy says:

    Thankyou so much for your clear and helpful pattern πŸ™‚

  10. Brenda says:

    Hi, I’m so glad you made a tutorial on this, I try it and it came out so nice, I post it and every one loves it, thank you very much, you do nice work, God bless your hands

    • Paula says:

      Hello Brenda, This sure is a favorite with everyone! I’m so glad you like it too. πŸ™‚

  11. Lajla says:

    Paula this pattern is tha same for right and left booties? or there is some different for each? For me there is no right and left πŸ™‚

    • Paula says:

      Hi Lajla, yes the pattern is the same for the left and right bootie. πŸ™‚

  12. Carolina says:

    Hi! You are a genious! this is the only tutorial i undestood, Thank you so much!
    Greetings from Argentina πŸ™‚

    • Paula says:

      Thank you so much, Carolina! I’m really happy to hear you were able to understand my instructions. πŸ™‚

  13. samantha says:

    I’ve been searching for loafers for three days now and none seem to be 3-6 mo which is what I need. Do you have a pattern for these in that size…

    • Paula says:

      Hello Samantha, yes I have a 3-6 mth old baby bootie pattern called ‘Craft Show Baby Booties 3-6 mths old’ in the ‘Babies’ category.

  14. daniel cortez says:

    hi. soon we shall be parents, my wife wants to make these shoes, but we donΒ΄t understand English very well, could you translate for us some instructions? thankΒ΄s a lot for your attention, thanks

    • Paula says:

      Hello Daniel,
      At this stage I am unable to translate for you sorry.

  15. Anushka says:

    Hi Paula,

    you are doing a great job and keep it up! love all the baby designs you havedone…I’m soon to be a mother and trying to do this apple bootie..I’m in UK..i used the DK baby yarn and 3.5mm i got the sole 6cm seems too small even for the new born…i followed the exact instructions you’ve given..cant figure out what’s the wrong πŸ™ …please help!

    • Paula says:

      Hello Anushka, thank you very much! Congratulations on being a soon-to-be mother!

      You can try using a 4mm crochet hook to get the size you are wanting. It’s possible that your yarn is thinner than the one I have used.

  16. Jacklyn says:

    Hi Paula, wondering in the picture here the strap seems to be at bit more at the front then the middle? which works best??

    thanks πŸ˜‰

    • Paula says:

      Hi Jacklyn, they are a better fit if the strap is a little towards the front instead of the middle.

  17. Leigh Ann Martin says:

    Hi Paula
    You are a wonderful easy to follow teacher for crochet. I’ve enjoyed all your tutorials and patterns. I know I can always depend on you for clear concise instruction.

    Thanks and keep up the fabulous work.

    • Paula says:

      Hello Leigh Ann, Thank you so very much for such a lovely comment. I really appreciate it. <3

  18. I gave a pair of the apple toffee booties to a baby shower along with a basket weave blanket and ur head bands. the girl was impressed. the only thing I can’t seem to master is 2dbcroch in 2 stitches. I have to keep going back to tuterial for this one thing. I even discided to subscribe to ur website because I’m always picking up ur patterns. I have been crocheting for 30 some years. But now, I’m battling health issues and can’t work outside of home for awhile. So, I’m making things and hoping to sell some of them.

    • Paula says:

      That’s great, Catherine. Keep on practicing the dc2tog, you will get it in time. Thank you very much for subscribing and I hope you sell many items! Take good care of yourself. xx

  19. Lorri says:

    Hi Paula,

    I an a beginner but have found your videos so helpful! I can easily follow along! I have watched other tutorials where the demonstrator went so fast I couldn’t keep. Thank you for going slow and showing stitches so that beginners cash follows along!

    I have made a few pairs of theses booties in various colors. They are a big hit!
    Thank you!

  20. britt b says:

    I have been searching for a while for a baby shoe pattern to try. I tried this one today for my first baby shoe ever. So easy! Instead of using 3 different colors I used sugar n cream hot green and soft ecru. Hot green for the entire shoe and band and I added and extra row to the band with the soft ecru. Came out wonderful!

  21. rhea says:
