Getting Started with Crochet

Before we begin, let’s gather our materials. You’ll need a crochet hook (preferably 2.20 mm for

is not just about creating; it’s about enjoying the journey of crafting.

Foundation Chain: Start by creating a slip knot and then crochet a loose chain of 40 stitches. This will form the base of your bootie.

  1. Half Double Crochet (HDC): From the third chain, work a row of HDC, giving you a total of 38 stitches. Remember, consistency in tension is key!
  2. Building Rows: Turn your work, chain two, and continue with HDC in each stitch across. Repeat this for 13 rows in your first color.
  3. Color Transition: Switch to a second color and repeat the HDC process for another 13 rows. This creates a lovely two-tone effect.

Assembling the Booties

After completing a total of 26 rows, you’ll have a neat square. Now, it’s time to shape it into a bootie. Choose one side as the top, fold the square, and start stitching from the back, creating a heel. Continue sewing towards the front, leaving an opening for the foot.

Final Touches and Tips

Remember, the size of your booties can vary based on the yarn thickness and hook size. The goal is to create a perfect square as your base. Feel free to experiment with colors and textures!
