Crochet: Easy baby booties & hat pattern?

itsmesuzqSeptember 14, 2005

I am a beginner at crochet, but I've mastered the shawls and blankets pretty well. :-) I just found out that my sweet neighbors are pregnant with their first child...and I would love to crochet some baby booties and a hat for them. I'm wondering if any of you have used any "easy" patterns, or if you know of a something on the internet?

Thanks so much!

I have an easy bootie pattern. I will look it up. I knit all the baby hats I make, so cannot help you there.

Materials--Size H hook and worsted yarn. ( No gauge given.)

Row 1: Ch 12, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 9 sts, 3 sc in end (toe) st, sc in next 10 sts, 3 sc in end (heel) st. Do not join.
Row 2: Sc in each sc, 3 sc at end of each row (center stitch of toe and heel )
Row 3, 4, 5: Sc in each sc.
Row 6: Sc in each sc, dec 3 sts at center sts of toe, sc to heel.
Row 7: Repeat row 6.
Row 8: Repeat row 6; at heel, join with sl st, ch 3.
Row 9: *Sk 1 sc, hdc in next sc, ch 1, rep from * around. Join with sl st. Ch 1
Row 10: *Sc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, repeat from * around. Join with sl st. You can stop here, or I like to add row 11.
Row 11: Hdc in each st and ch 1 sp around.

Make two "shoe laces"-- make a chain about 18 inches long. Thread through the spaces made in row 9 or 10.

To decrease in sc--put hook through stitch and pull up a loop, put hook through the next stitch and pull up a loop. Now you have 3 loops on your hook. Make a loop and pull it through all 3 loops on the hook.

These make up VERY fast. Good luck.

First, I want to thank MUDPIE who was so kind in e-mailing me lovely patterns to knit a christening set.

Now, I need a shell pattern for baby hat and booties, anyone knows where I can find one? I have been looking through loads and loads of pages on the internet but can't seem to get lucky :-(
