Create these adorable Darla easy crochet baby booties! I’m expecting a baby in July and cannot stop making these sets! So cute! The booties uses a size G hook and medium worsted weight yarn in 2 colors and follows a simple easy to follow pattern.
The final booties measure 4.5″ long (unrolled) and 3.5″ tall.
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.

Rows 8-10: **You will now work in the round** Continue to sc around in each row.
Rows 11-16: Change to new color and continue to sc in each st around.
On last row, insert your hook in the stitch to the right instead of the left. Continue to sc as usual but you will be working around from right to left instead of left to right. This creates a beautiful edging, also known as the crab stitch. Sl st in last st and fasten off. Weave in all ends. Fold cuff over.
