Create these cute crochet textured baby booties!
These cute little crochet textured baby booties are crochet with medium worsted weight yarn (2 strands together) or using bulky yarn to create a nice thick sturdy boot. Very cute, warm and the front post double crochet really gives it a great texture!
Sizes range from newborn to toddler, just change your hook size!
How to make your booties not slip:
I get this question a lot and have a couple solutions I think work really well:
- Puff paint. Squirt little dots or lines of puff paint on the bottoms. Turn them upside down and let them dry overnight before use.
2. Clear plasti dip spray. This is my preferred method as it works really well and just sprays on. Be sure to do this outdoors. Spray the bottoms and let dry overnight before use.

I don’t understand row 4. Sc in 3rd loop only?? What loop? What does this mean?
Laura Wilson says
The third loop is directly behind the back loop. There are some video tutorials on this on youtube. I’m currently making more videos to better explain stitch techniques. If you can’t quite get it you can also just do the back loops only for that row and they will still take shape and look good. Hope this helps!
