Einfacher Crochet Rolled Down Booties


In today's tutorial, we're going to do a
pair of baby booties, and I'm going to be teaching you the three month's size
and the pattern's available for the six and 12 month sizes as well. In today's tutorial, we are going to make
these rolled down cuff baby booties, just like you see here. we have the full
complete pattern, it's not a complex pattern, it's quite easy to do. We're going to be doing the cuff area
here, and then doing the baby booties. Now it does have a difference of yarn,
you can either choose to use, what we
have is the Bernat Handicrafter
cotton or the Sugar Lily and Cream, or you could also use Bernat Satin yarn as
well, and you can see that the instructions are included with different
sizes. So you have the sizes three and then six and twelve. So whenever we go to read instructions,
just like you see here, the three, this is a three month is the first number, the six month's is the second number, and
the third number there is the 12 months. And every time there is a change of size,
you will see that. So in the in step here, it's miss the first seven for the
first size, miss the first eight for the next
size, and miss the next nine for the next
size. So it gives you an idea of what to do. So today we're going to need a four
millimeter, size G crochet hook today and let's get started right after this. Let's get started using a size G, four
millimeter crochet hook. I am going to use Bernat Handicrafter yarn today and it
is a cotton yarn that's kind of perfect yarn for those that are in the South,
that are pretty hot temperatures. Cotton really does a great job and being able
to keep babies cool when you need to be. So starting off with the slip knot on
the hook, never counts as one. We are
going to chain sixteen, and we're going to
create the cuff that is rolled down. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16. So now that I've got sixteen, I am going to do a
single crochet all the way to the other side. So skipping to the second chain on
the hook, so just go one and two, go to the second turn it over, get the back part of the stitch only, and
just single crochet, and single crochet all the way across back to the beginning
of the chain. Now that I'm all the way back to the
other side, I just want to turn my work
and start row number two. So we have to create this cuff until you
get six and a half inches, or six inches long for the small size, the other sizes
are listed there. So what we have to do for the second row,
we chain up one, and if you're new to crochet, you may not know what a front loop, back
loop is. So both stitch, both strings that you see here are a stitch. If you go into the first string that's
closest to you, that is the front loop, and if you go
into the back one that's farthest away from you, that's a back loop.
So what you have to do is, every time you
turn around you have to chain up one and go into the back loop only of the stitch,
and single crochet, and you were going to continue to do that. Just back loop only, and this is creating
the cuffs that you see that's within the booties. So you just need to go back and forth on
the back loops only until this particular piece measures six inches, if
you're doing the three month sizes with me. So I will leave that with you, so
just have to keep going back and forth, and when we come back, I will have the
cuff completely done, and then we'll move
on to the next part of the tutorial. I
won't have it sewn up or anything. I'll meet you back at that point as well. So
continue along and I'll see you in just a moment. So I'm coming up to the end, and this
happens to be my six inch mark of length that I measured up against, and what I
want to do now is that we need to work our way along the side of the ridge here.
So it says in the pattern that we need to get twenty-three equally single crocheted
spaces in here. Now the thing about it is, that every
ridge that you see popping out here, it
represents two rows, so 1, so I got 2,
4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 19, which means that
every row cannot equals one single crochet each. So this means that at certain points
I have to add an extra. So to begin to do this, okay, we need to chain up one, and we just
have to equally space twenty-three, so I'm going to go 1 and 2, and then the next one
I'm going to put two into there, so 3 and 4, and then I'm going to
just keep moving along, 5, 6, 7, and the next one, I'm going to add two into
that one. 8, 9, and keep moving along,
10, 11, 12. I'm going to add two into the next one 13
and 14 and 15 and 16. I'm going to add two into the next one 17,
18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23. So how did I figure that out so
quickly? I have experience with crochet. So even though it's evenly spaced, there
is two in a few of those in order to bring me back to twenty-three. So let's move on and we're going to turn
our work and go up and do one more row across. So we chain up one and we
single crochet into each one of the stitches along, and then we're going to
fasten off on the other side. So I'll
meet you there in just a moment. So now just come up all the way to the
end, and I want to fasten off and we're just going to snip our yarn and this will
conclude that. Okay, so we just got to weave in your
ends. Just do a nice job of it. We have to move on to the next part of
this tutorial. Of course at the end, you can always hide your tails in a lot
better with the darning needle, but I just want to get them out of my way for
now, and then move on to the next part of this
tutorial. So this is what we have right here. This is the top of the boot here, it
will roll down, like so. And so, then this
becomes the top of the foot area and
we're going to do that next. So now I want to hold my project upside
down, or to put into basically the way I was holding it before, and I want to be
very conscious of where we are at this particular point. And so when we
fasten it, when we did the first row, this was the right side and then we did this.
This is the wrong side. So we have to turn it back. Okay, so just
remember how to do that. So we have to start off by missing a certain amount of
stitches before we can join our yarn. But, I'm just going to put a slip knot on my hook and I'm going to begin to count.
So it says that, says with the right
side, okay, RS, it says to join by missing the
first seven stitches. I'm going to count. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. So I think I'm going to go into the eighth here. Okay, so it does say that is a single
crochet, and do a join into the next stitch. Just going to join it. Okay and then, and so I got a join, and then it says to
do, what does it say? Chain one and single crochet into the same space. Got it. Just like that, and then it says
to do one single crochet in the same space as the last slip stitch, which is
fine, and then one single crochet in each
of the next eight and then turn. So the next eight is all going to be
this. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Just like this. Okay, so this is what we
have going on here, so this is where the instep is. So
we're going to turn our work and begin the next row. So rows two, three and four are going to be the same thing. Chain up one and one single crochet
across. So please do this for rows number one, two, sorry, for two, three, and four. Okay, rows two, three, and four, just single
crochet across and this is a row number two. Please do that, and I'll meet you at the
end of row number four.
So I've just finished row number four
here, so I turned my work and ready for row number five. So this is the final
part of the top part of the instep. So what we want to do, is that we want to
chain up one, and we are going to put a single crochet two together, and in the
first one. So the first two is going to, the first stitch is just in, pull through, going into the next stitch, pull through,
and then pull through all three loops. Now it says to do one single crochet in
each of the next five. So 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, leaving you with two stitches left, and
you're going to do it two together there as
well. Just like that. Okay and what we want to do
at this point, is that we want to fasten this off. So let's just trim our work out
and fasten this off. This is the top of the instep. Okay and you can do a better job of that
if you wish as well, and what it says to do is that we have to sew the back seam.
So we're going to be able to just go along, and just come along, and sew the
back seam together, so that we can do it, like this, and I'll show you that in just
a moment. So taking a darning needle what we want
to do is we want to put the same color
yarn, same material, into a darning needle
and we want to sew the back seam of the bootie shut. Okay, so let's just create a slip knot here.
I like to do that just for extra security, and what I want to do is that I
want to put the two seams together like this. And I'm going to start at the
bottom here and just work my way across. So just jump in here and across, pull
through, and pull it to get to the slip knot and slip the needle through the slip knot, like this. And I want you just to work back through the seam, to the
back of the bootie here, and just doing a
whipstitch. Just up and over. It helps if you trim out your other
spare yarns that you've been working with before you do this, but that's okay. So
I just want to work my way up the seam. I don't want to do anything crazy like
pulling it way too tight. I just want to do a nice job with the stitches and just
kind of match these up as we go, and I will leave that to you and I'll see
you at the top of this seam line. So now that I'm at the top, what I want
to do is I just want to create a little knot that's in here. So just slide
the needle underneath some fibers and
just put it through the loop like so. Now
the best way to hide the tails and that will never fall out, is that you glide the hook underneath
some fibers. Don't go to the good side of this
project. Just glide in one direction and then come back and go into a different
area, but the same path in the other direction, and then back into a
third down. What happens is that the tails will never fall out, because it's
been wrapped perfectly each and every time. So what we want to do is that we just
want to trim this yarn now. And this is my starting string, but the
what we have here is on the other side,
here we have the bootie itself. So let's begin. We're going to, I'm going
to leave in some of these tails that I have. Going to do a nice job and then
I'll meet you back and we'll continue along with the base. So this is what its
kind of looking like at this moment. To begin the next part, you now got to turn
it inside out. So that the seam is on the inside of the bootie. Just in here, and
this is the good side that you're looking at. So if your baby is wearing
that, you're looking at the good side.
So eventually what's going to happen is
that this will roll down and you have the nice cuff area at the top of the
boots. So let's begin. We're going to move down
and start doing the foot next. So grabbing our yarn, what we want
to do, is we want to start crocheting around here, and we want to do it in a
way that the back is going to be matching the top of the instep. So let's just create a slipknot. We're
going to join it in the back of the seam line area. Okay, so we're just going to join it right
in the back. Might be kind of tight there,
and join. Just join it in, like so, and it
says to chain two, which counts as a half double crochet. So 1 and 2, leaving this straggler down on top of
the line. It just as a lot easier for you to follow. So it says to put one half double
crochet in each of the next stitches as six stitches. So if you count, there should be six stitches here. So 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6. That is no camera trick, that is the real deal, which is hard to believe
for me. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Usually I screw up in these booties too bad as I'm fine. So we're going to do six half double
crochets. So 1, 2, 3,
3, and 4, 5, and 6. Now it says to put in seven half double
crochets down the side of the instep. So there should be a total of seven here.
You might need to squeeze them in, so just continue to go. I'm gonna go right
in the corner here, so I'm actually going to go in the side here to 1 and 2. I'm
just equally spacing it, 3. I'm going to put another one there, 4, 5, and 6, and
put another one in that is 7. So there's my seven and then it says to
put in two half double crochets in the corner. single crochet So it right in
the corner here I'm going to put two.
So 1 and 2, and then it says to put
five half double crochets along the top of the instep. So there should be five there. So let's
do this so 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 which takes me then to the next corner, and in the
corner, it's going to be two half double crochets. 1 and 2, and then we have to
put another seven down the in the seam again. So we just got to equally space that. So
1, going to put another one there, 2, 3, 4, 5. Yep, another one there, 6, oops, that
was supposed to be 6. 6 and the final one is 7. And then it says to put a half
double crochet in each of the next seven
stitches. So I'm just going to count it
just for the sake of it. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 that takes me right back to the
very beginning. So let's just do that so 1, 2, 3, 4, for
those 4, this is 5, 6, and 7 and I want to join this then to the top of the first
chain two, Just like this, to pull it nice and tight together like there. Okay, so
that's kind of how it looks like at this particular moment. Looking pretty good, isn't it? So let's move along and second round for
the foot area. Now for the second row what we're going to do is that we are
going to create a ridge that looks like
it's part of like a sole, basically. So
we're going to count our chain two and it says to create what is called a double
crochet back post. So each one of these stitches that we work with, we're going
to be working from the back post only. Okay, so what we're going to do is that
we are just going to insert from the back. So let's begin. So this is one
double crochet back post in each, going all the way around. So we wrap the hook,
and coming from the back, out from the side, and then back to the other side for
a back post, and we double crochet. So
that, and we do that for each stitch
going all the way around. So we're not adding any stitches or subtracting any
stitches. Were simply just doing a back post double crochet in each of the
stitches going all the way around, and this creates a really beautiful line
when it comes to your booties. Okay, so you have a beautiful line there. So again just come
from the back post and do a double crochet back post all the way around and
do tha,t and I'll see you at the end of this round. So you're going to come all the way back
around. I have one more left and then I'm
just going to join it with a slip
stitch to the top of the beginning chain two. So here's the thing, I'm running out of
this green, so I'm going to switch off color. So I'm going to completely fasten off at this moment. Technically you wouldn't if you're going to carry on,
but actually it might be a good thing, because I can make the bottom of
the sole something completely different for different color. So I'm just going to
fasten this off. You're not supposed to, but you can if you want to, because it is
your creativity. You can do what you want.
So let me just grab, go to the yarn
closet, and see what's there, and I'll be back, and I'll grab another color of the
cotton yarn. So for round number three, and we have to do exactly what we did
and I'm going to start off with this pink. Now I've seen this color combo done in
boots before. Looks really quite sharp, if you ask me, but that's my personal
opinion. So we have to then join it to where we
have done the chaining of two last time. Okay, and that's where I kind of fastened off before and we want to chain another two.
So I just fastening on and then 1 and 2. So for this entire round is exactly what
we had in the last one. So again from the back post only, just do double crochets.
And you'll do that with every stitch all the way around. So I've already shown you
how to do that. It's going to be easier to access this time around because the
stitches are bigger than they were in the last round. So it's just a matter of
doing it. Okay, so back post double crochet into each,
going all the way around, and I'll see you back here in just a moment.
So I'm just finishing up and I'm coming
all the way back around and I'm going to join it to the top of the beginning
chain two. And so this is what it looks like at this moment. Kinda neat. So let's begin. We're going to go with
fourth round. And the fourth round we're going to start getting smaller as we start
creating the bottom of the sole. Okay, so let's begin. We're going to chain
one and it says single crochet two together over the first two stitches. So
in the first step, we're going to yarn over, pull through,
and in the second stitch, yarn over, pull
through. You'll have three loops on your hook.
You're going to pull through all three. Okay, now it says to do fourteen single crochets
in a row. So we're going to count these out, so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14. So now, what we have, is that we have to
put in a single crochet two together. and We have to do that one in the next one.
So the next two are together, so just put them, to put them together. The next one
is a single crochet by itself, and then the next one is together as well. So what
you're just going to do is you're going
to single crochet yourself all the way
back to the back of the heel, but in the final two stitches, you're going to put
the last two together. Okay, so make sure you do that. So we're just
single crocheting. So you could either count it, but because I told you that, you
can just simply just single crochet yourself all the way to the back of the
boot, and the final two stitches will be together. Okay, so I got two stitches left here, so
just in, pull through, in, pull through, make them together, and then just join it
to the beginning with a slip stitch.
Okay, so let's begin the next row. Begin row
number five. We're going to chain one and put the first two together. So in the first one, pull through, next
one, pull through. Okay, so the first two are together, and now
it says that we need to count twelve this time. So 1, so twelve single crochets in a
row. So that was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12, and now the next two together. So just put the next two together. Okay, the next one is a single crochet and
then the next two are together. So these two are together now and now we
just have to single crochet ourselves
all the way back to the start again, and the final two are going to be two together at the end. So you notice how I count when
I get to
the halfway spot where I know, I know I have to put those two together, but knowing that I'm coming back to the
back of the heel I'm basically I'm just relying on instinct and orders instead
of having to count. Okay, so here we go we have the last two
stitches to be put together and I think that was the last one right there. So the last two are right here, and then we just join it to the
beginning single crochet that we started
with, just like there. Okay so that's what
it looks like so far. Let's move along to round number six.
Round number 6, we just have one more round after this, but let's begin round
number 6 we're going to chain one. The first two are together and so we're
just going to put the two together, just like that, and it says for number six, there's gonna be ten now, so in a row, so
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 and the next two are together. So let's put those
together. The next one is a single crochet, and then the next two are
together. Just like there and then the rest of
them are all just going to be single
crochets all the way back and the final two will be two together. So what we're doing is we're creating
the underside of the sole. We just have one more round left and then we just
have to sew the seam line at the bottom out the stock, of the bootie. So we're coming back to the start. We
just got to keep an eye on where we are. The last two are going to be together. So here's together and then just join it
to the first one. tip So let's move along and we're going to round number seven,
the final round of these booties for
today. So the final round, we're going to chain
up one. The first two are together and for number seven, we have to crochet for
eight in a row for the next, so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, and then the next two are to our
seven and then eight, sorry and then the next two are together and
then the one next one is by itself and then the next two are together, like that,
and then the rest of them all the way to the back is going to be one single
crochet with the exception to the final. Tthe final two have to be together as well.
So this concludes on how to do this
particular bootie we're going to do the
seam line at the bottom of the of the bootie where we're going to bring it
together. So we're just looking for the very end here. Okay, so one and put those two together and
then just join it to the beginning. So what I would do is not fasten of this yarn like really short, just leave it so you can run the darning needle through
it, and what I would do that as well, is that we should turn this booie inside
out and make sure the seam goes on the inside. So let's turn the bootie inside out so
that the seam will be on the inside of
the bootie. Okay, so we just gotta put a sewing
needle through here and just bring this together. Okay, so let's do that next. So we're going
to put a darning needle onto this strand and we're going to sew it shut. So the trick is is that when you go to
do this you want to kind of make it look as close as you can to the to being the
right shape and so you just want to go back and forth with the whip stitch,
along both sides of the seam. Now babies, they can put their feet up in the air
quite a bit so you kind of want to be conscientious of how you're doing the
bottom of the bootie.
You know other mothers will judge. You
know it is, we're not supposed to but we do. Okay, so we're just going to just whip
stitch our way across the bottom to bring the seam shut. It's kind of like the icing on the cake. It's kind of like the finishing touches,
you feel like you got something done. And so you just gonna have to repeat this
for a second pair. Just watch your counts. If you're
following the pattern, it just makes it a lot easier. I had a history and when I first started
crocheting is that my booties were never
the same size. (laughing) Okay, so we're just coming up all the way
and I'm just finishing up. So I want to come in and I want to just tie a little
bit of a knot with the yarn strand and you don't want your tails coming out, so
the secret to doing that is that if you put your hook in or your needle in, in
one direction, pull through, and through a different
path but in the other direction and then a different path into that of another
direction, is that you'll never have the tails falling out of your work. So we can just simply just clean up the
work, like that.
Just get rid of all these loose little
tails. I'm just going to trim this one
afterward and I'm going to turn it back to the way it should be, and let's give it a brief inspection. Okay, so here's what it would look like and
you can roll down the booties or you can roll them up depending on
what you're up to and you just have to shape the bottom of the foot a little
bit better. Just give it a good few tugs and this
would be how you would do one of those baby booties with the roll-down tops, just like so. So until next time, I'm Mikey, on behalf of The Crochet Crowd, as well as
Yarnspirations.com, thanks so much
for joining me today and until next time. Hopefully, we have some more free
patterns and etc. available to you real soon. Until then, we'll see you. Bye Bye.
