This is my Tie Up Crochet Baby Booties Pattern and the tie can be secured over the front of the babie’s foot so to ensure that those booties are going to stay on… we hope! This pattern is a standard one I use to make booties for gifts and charity donations.
For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the Tie Up Crochet Baby Booties Video Tutorial

All the best,
Well, this was the first pattern book I’ve ever purchased and I made plenty of cute little booties for my little girl and one pair for a friend.
I found the instructions easy to follow, and if there was a stitch I didn’t know there is a chart in the back which is very handy.
It would have been nice if it had color pages but at least you have a color picture on the front and back covers.
