Update:
I made another pair of the itty bitty booties. This time it's the 1 button strap version. The pattern includes both versions. Details are the same as below. There're more pictures here.



I didn't have a single crocheted FO for 2008 so it's great to kickstart 2009 with one! I made these for a friend who's having a baby. They're easy to make and freakin' cute.

Pattern: Little Button Loafers (pattern is available for purchase from Sylver Designs)

Size: 1 (3 months) (3.75″L by 2″W)

Yarn: 0.5 x Rowan All Seasons Cotton in Cookie and a little bit of Rowan All Seasons Cotton in Military

Hook: 3.5m

Details and more pictures in blog post.

Great start for the year.  My baby-daddy cruised by the computer and said "Awesome!  Can you make those?"  The answer was no.  I can only admire.

These are fantastic! I would love to make a pair for my to-be-born neice, but I am wondering, isn't the yarn to harsh on the baby skin?

Thanks everyone for your kind words. The pattern's from Sylver Designs. The post has been edited to include more details.

Thanks! Rowan ASC is a pretty soft yarn and is quite popular for knitting or crocheting baby items. Plus, it's machine washable too!

These are so cute! My cousin is having a girl soon, and I'd love to knock out a pair of these for her. I could use pink as the detail yarn to make it just a touch more girly. Love!

I am really impressed with how stylish these shoes are. Usually crocheted things look so...crocheted... Undecided And since I only know how to crochet I am psyched to see that there is hope! Beautiful job!

The pattern includes both 1-button strap and 2-button strap versions. Now I just need to find another baby to crochet the 1-button strap version for...  Grin
