Crochet Christmas Booties
Looking for the perfect Christmas booties for baby’s first Christmas? Get the camera ready as these crochet baby booties for Christmas are absolutely adorable and make such a great Christmas gift for the new baby in your life.
This Christmas Booties Crochet Pattern (with a step-by-step photo tutorial) is a simple, fast, fun Christmas crochet project.
About These Christmas Crochet Baby Booties
- These Christmas Baby Boots work up quickly (you can complete them watching your favorite Christmas movie!) and use only a small amount of yarn (less than a quarter of a skein in total).
- Designed to fit a 3-9 month old baby but you can adjust your hook size to make them smaller or bigger.
- While designed to fit a baby, you can make them (or just one) as a fabulous holiday decoration and candy cane holder!
This Christmas Baby Booties Crochet Pattern is written in English for right-handed crochet using standard US crochet terminology. If you’re more familiar with UK terminology, check out my US to UK Conversion Chart.

Christmas Crochet Baby Booties Pattern Details
Finished Santa Booties sizing:
- Bootie sole length (from tip of toe to heel): 4.25 inches
- Width of heel: 2.25 inches
- Width of ball of foot: 2.75 inches
- Height of bootie (from bottom of sole to top of leg): 4 inches
These booties should fit a baby between the ages of 3 – 9 months but it’s always best to measure the baby’s foot first.
Yarn: Any size 4 (medium) for the booties and size 5 (bulky) fleece for the fluffy top.
For the booties, I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn, Solid. This yarn is size 4 (medium) and 100% acrylic. The size is 4.5 oz / 127.5 g. A skein is 285 yd./260m and you only need less than quarter a skein in total.
I used the color “Black” for the sole and belt; the color “Cherry” for the main part of the bootie and leg; and the color “Sunny Day” for the belt buckle.
For the fluffy top of the booties, I used Bernat Pipsqueak. This yarn is size 5 (bulky). The size is 3.50 oz. / 100 g. A skein is 101 yd / 92 m. You only need a few yards. The exact color is called “Whitey White.”
Crochet Hook: Size F/5 3.75 mm for everything but the leg. H/8 5.00mm for the leg.
Other: Stitch Marker, Yarn Needle, Scissors, Pins
- st = stitch
- sts = stitches
- ch = chain
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- dc = double crochet
- sc2tog = single crochet two together
- hdc2tog = half double crochet two together
Christmas Booties Pattern Notes:
- The booties are made from the sole up.
- They are worked in the round. Do not turn your work at the end of each round (with the exception of Row 4, which is explained in the written instructions).
- Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
- Always start in the same st as the chain.
- Repeat instructions such as [2 hdc in next 2 st, hdc] x 3 means to repeat for a total of 3 times. In this example the stitches would look like this: 2hdc, 2hdc, hdc, 2hdc, 2hdc, hdc, 2hdc, 2hdc, hdc.

Christmas Crochet Booties Instructions
Start: With black yarn and a F/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook: ch 8.
Note: Rows 1-3 are worked in continuous rounds without joining.
Row 1: In the 2nd ch from hook, 2 hdc in the same chain (Place Marker (PM) in first hdc), hdc in next 5 chains, 6 hdc in last chain. Working along the other side, hdc in next 5 ch, 2 hdc in last st – do not join (20)
Row 2: 2 sc in next st (PM in first sc), 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, hdc in next 3 st, [2 dc in next st] x 6, hdc in next 3 st, sc in next 2 st, [2 sc in next st] x 2 – do not join (30)
Row 3: hdc (PM), hdc, [2 hdc in next st] x 3, hdc in next 5 st, [2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st] x 6, hdc in next 5 st, [2 hdc in next st] x 3 – do not join (42 sts made). sl st into the next st.
Note: The right side of the sole will be facing up and will be inside your bootie. The wrong side of the sole will be facing down and will be on the outside of your bootie.
Row 4: Change color: attach red yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn, leaving a tail to weave in ends.
With red yarn, ch 1 and turn (you’ll be crocheting in the opposite direction and your first st will be into the last st you made, which is the sl st from Row 3).
Working in back loops only (which are the ones furthest away from you), sc into the back loop of the st attached to the ch 1. sc in the back loops only in each st around (42 sc). sl st into both loops of 1st sc to join.
***Note: Work in both loops from now on.***
Row 5: Ch 1, working in both loops, sc in next 11 sts, [hdc2tog, hdc in next 4 sts] x 3, hdc2tog, sc in next 11 sts, sl st in 1st sc to join (38)
Row 6: Ch 1, sc in next 10 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, [hdc2tog, hdc2tog, hdc] x 3, hdc, sc in next 10 sts, sl st in 1st sc to join (32)
I recommend weaving in your current loose ends so that you don’t have to turn the bootie fully inside out later.
Row 7: Ch 1, sc in next 11 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, [hdc2tog, hdc in next 2 sts] x 2, sc in next 11 sts, sl st in 1st sc to join (30)

Row 9: Ch 1, sc, sc2tog, sc in next 6 sts, hdc, [hdc2tog x 3], hdc, sc in next 6 sts, sc2tog, sl st in 1st sc to join (20)
Row 10: Change color: attach black yarn with a sl st. You can leave the red yarn attached (as long as it’s in the inside of your bootie) and pick it back up again after the belt is completed. With black yarn, ch 1 and sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20)
Row 11: Still with black yarn, ch 1 and sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).
Change hook size to H/8 5.00mm.
Row 12: Change color: attach red yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn and leave a tail to weave in loose ends.
With red yarn, ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).
Row 13 – 16: ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).
Row 17: Change yarn: attach fluffy white yarn with a sl st. Fasten off red yarn and leave a tail to weave in loose ends.
With fluffy white yarn, ch 1 and sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).
Row 18: Still with fluffy white yarn, ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).
Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
With F/5 (3.75mm) hook and golden yellow yarn, ch 14.
1st Rectangle Side (short): In 2nd ch from hook, sl st into back ridge loop. In next ch, sl st into back ridge loop. In next ch, sl st x 3 into same back ridge loop.
2nd Rectangle Side (long): sl st into next 3 back ridge loops. In next ch, sl st x 3 into same back ridge loop.
3rd Rectangle Side (short): sl st into next 2 back ridge loops. In next ch, sl st x 3 into same back ridge loop.
4th Rectangle Side (long): sl st into next 3 back ridge loops. sl st into 1st sl st to join.
Fasten off leaving a 12″ tail. Weave in the first end to belt buckle. Using a yarn needle, attach belt buckle to bootie on the front center of bootie with the rows of black in the middle.
