  • 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 festive St. Patrick’s Day crochet decoration!

Warning: these are not to be worn on baby’s feet if he/she is walking or standing. There is no slip resistance whatsoever. Please ensure you remove these booties if baby is standing or walking.


Skill Level

Basic

Size

Finished St. Patrick’s Day Booties sizing using worsted weight yarn and an F/5 (3.75mm) hook for everything but the leg (H/8 (5.00mm) hook for the leg):

  • Bootie sole length (from tip of toe to heel): 4 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. Here’s a handy crochet bootie sizing chart.

Gauge

For the sole & foot – a 4″ x 4″ swatch = 15 sc and 17 rows

Materials

Yarn: Any worsted weight (4) yarn.

I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn, Solid. This yarn is medium (4) weight 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.

  • The color “Black” for the sole and belt (approx 30 yds).
  • The color “Kelly Green” for the main part of the bootie and leg (approx 50 yds).
  • The color “Sunny Day” for the belt buckle (approx 3 yds).
  • The color “Fern” for the four leaf clover (approx 3 yds).

Crochet Hook Sizes:

  • F/5 (3.75 mm) for the sole and foot.
  • H/8 (5.00mm) for the leg.
  • D/3 (3.25mm) for the four leaf clover.

Other: Stitch Marker, Yarn Needle, Scissors, Pins

My Materials

Abbreviations

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

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.

Written Instructions

St. Patrick’s Day Booties Soles

Chain: 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.

BOOTIES SIDES

Row 4: Change color: attach green yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn, leaving a tail to weave in ends.

With green 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.

Booties Steps 1 - 4
The colors in this picture are different than pattern to make it easier to see.

***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 8: Ch 1, sc, sc2tog, sc in next 8 sts, hdc, [hdc2tog x 3], hdc, sc in next 8 sts, sc2tog, sc, sl st in 1st sc to join (25)

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)

The colors in this picture are different than pattern to make it easier to see.

Booties Belt

Row 10: Change color: attach black yarn with a sl st. You can leave the green 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).

St Patricks Day Baby Booties Crochet Pattern

Booties Leg

Change hook size to H/8 5.00mm (or two hook sizes up from the hook you used for the sole and foot)

Row 12: Change color: attach green yarn with a sl st. Fasten off black yarn and leave a tail to weave in loose ends.

With green yarn, ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).

I recommend weaving in your current loose ends so that you don’t have to turn the bootie fully inside out later.

Row 13 – 14: ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).

I recommend pausing your work on the bootie sides, making the belt buckle (instructions are below) and attaching it to the bootie. If you wait to the end, it can be more difficult to attach it to the bootie. Once attached, continue following the instructions below.

Row 15 – 18: ch 1. sc in each st around. Sl st in 1st sc to join (20).

Row 19: ch 1. Instead of crocheting from right to left, start working from left to right. Working in the stitch to your right, reverse single crochet/crab stitch*. Reverse single crochet/crab stitch in each stitch around.

To complete the round, stop when you’ve reach the stitch were you started the round. Sl st into the starting stitch – do not reserve single crochet/crab stitch into that starting stitch (you’ll close the gap when weaving in your ends).

Fasten off and weave in your tail through the stitches to the right, closing the gap between the first reverse single crochet and the the sl st. Continue to weave in the end.

Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.

*How to Single Crochet/Reverse Crab Stitch

Crab stitch is single crochet in reverse meaning you insert hook to the st to the right of your active st (instead of the st to your left). With your hook inserted into the st on your right (from front to back as you normally single crochet), yarn over, pull through yarn (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through the 2 loops.

Stitching Together has a wonderful photo tutorial on how to do this stitch here and Heart Hook Home has a great video tutorial (starting at 0:55) here.

Belt Buckle

With F/5 (3.75mm) hook and golden yellow yarn, ch 14.

The rest of the belt buckle is made in one continuous row.

1st Rectangle Side (short): In 2nd ch from hook, sl st into back ridge loop. (Interweave has a great diagram of where the back ridge loop is here). 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.

Four Leaf Clover

With a D/3 (3.25 mm) hook and light green colored yarn, make a magic ring/circle.

To make the four leaves: Repeat *ch 5. Sl st into magic ring* from * to * a total of 4 times. Pull magic ring tight.

To make the stem: Ch 4.

Fasten off, leaving a 12″ tail. Weave in the first end. With your yarn needle and the other end, attach to the side of the bootie.
