When I was pregnant with my older daughter (now 23), I decided to crochet her a pair of baby "booties" which resembled hiking boots (tan, red laces).  Being a first-time mother, I didn't realize that my creation was large enough for a two-year-old until a catty acquaintance clued me in.  Question:  has anyone ever crocheted an appropriately sized pair of baby booties that look like hiking boots? Now that I've reached the age where the next step is grandmotherhood, I might like to try again.

Seems like you could take that Ugg pattern and modify that. The ugg patt is from the DIY network, and bev's country cottage has a ton of other patterns to look at for size and style.

Or knitting pattern central.

Edit : Dur, you said crochet. So my post is useless then. Crochet pattern central then.

I don't know much about the subject but if you put them in the washing machine and dryer will they shrink? Or would that just turn them into felt?

This totally won't help because I'm a sewer, not a knitter or crocheter...  But anyway.  Smiley  I was given a pair of crocheted cowboy boots for my first-born.  There were infant size and super cute!  The were blue with white stars on the side and she made them look like they have a little cowboy boot heel.  They are just too cute.  SO...  I know it can be done, but like I said, this probably won't help...
