This is an easy to follow pattern to make wrap around infant booties – both for boys and girls.
Okay, after some confusion I’m separating out the patterns. Here is the one for the INFANT size! I realized after making a second set of these that I have two G hooks and they are different sizes???
So for the larger Baby sized shoes I used a G6 – 4mm for these infant shoes I used G6 – 4.25! So if your looking for an infant size 1 (or 0-3 month) boot your in the right place! For a larger (closer to size 4) shoe go to the crochet wrap around button baby boots!

The pictures are still the same as before, for the larger size, I’ll try to substitute out smaller pictures when I make another pair!

Infant wrap around boots
caron simply soft yarn
G6- 4.25 mm hook (To go up a size use a larger hook, or a larger pattern, to go down a size use an G-4mm hook)

dc (double crochet)
sc2tog (single crochet 2 together)
dc2tog (double crochet 2 together)
dc3tog (double crochet 3 together)
row 1- sc in 2nd ch, sc 5 times, hdc 3 times, 7hdc in last ch, finish the rest of the round working along the back of the chain, hdc 3 times, sc 5 times, 4sc in the last/first ch, sl st to the first sc (28)
row 2- ch1, sc in same sc, sc 7 times, hdc, 2hdc 3 times, 3hdc (in one stitch), 2 hdc 3 times, hdc, sc 8 times, 2sc 3times, sl st to first sc (39)
row 3- ch1, working in back loops, sc in same sc, sc around, sl st to first sc (39)
rows 4-5- ch1, sc in same sc,sc around, sl st to first sc (39)
row 6- ch 1, sc in same sc, sc 9 times, sc2tog, dc2tog, dc, dc3tog, dc, dc2tog, sc2tog, sc around, sl st to first sc (33)

for the right boot sl st in the 7th stitch from the seam, for the left boot sl st in the 11th stitch from the seam
row 1- hdc in 3rd ch from hook- ch2 counts as hdc, hdc in next 9 ch, hdc in first sc (the same one you sl st in), hdc 19 times (there will be 3 spaces left), skip 2 spaces, sc in last space. (32) **note – some people had a problem with getting two right or two left feet. remember to not cross over the front, work down the inside, around the back and back up the outside, so you’ll work in opposite directions for each bootie, counterclock wise – looking top down, or “wrong” side out for the right booties and clockwise, or “right” side out for the left bootie**
row 2- ch2 (counts as hdc), turn, hdc in first hdc and around 28 times, ch 1 skip one hdc, hdc in last 2 (31- with a ch1 space)
row 3- ch2 (counts as hdc), turn, hdc, hdc in ch1 space, hdc around (32)
row 4 scallops (girls)- turn, 5dc in second hdc, *skip 1hdc, sc in next hdc, skip 1hdc, 5dc in next hdc*, repeat around (8 shells), sc down the side (I fit 5), continuing around sc across the bottom along the original chain (11), sl st, cut yarn and weave in ends
row 4 simple (boys)- ch1, turn, sc across top (32), down the side (5) and across the bottom chain (11), sl st, cut yarn and weave in ends
And both the boys and girl versions (again these are the larger size)
Don’t forget to add a button where ever you like and your done! I placed mine at the bottom of the 5th hdc over from the front- I might go lower next time… or maybe two smaller buttons?
And one final picture, I thought you might want an inside shot so you can see how it wraps a bit… I’m still so very much in love with these boots.

I made my first bootie today and yay!! The pattern worked perfectly. I am a new to crocheting and it looks so adorable. Thank you!!!
YAY! I’m so glad! Glad you enjoyed the pattern!
I am working with Lion Brand Organic COtton Medium Yarn, with a size J hook. I am trying to make the booties to fit a sole 5.5-6inches. I tried the larger pattern and it came out to 7.5 inches. Do you think this smaller pattern will work with the yarn i am using? I am very new to crochet and can’t do any adjustments on my own.
I always just suggest start by making the sole’s whichever one is closer to the size you are going for start with that pattern, then try going down or up a hook size.
I just made this for a baby girl to go with a layette set I just completed. It’s a conglomeration of so many different patterns from different sites. Your design was absolutely perfect and the cherry on top. I made a few additions and it turned out awesome. I am so grateful you offered these for free and so is the family who will be receiving them. THANKS A MILLION!!!!
you are so welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed the booties!

It says for the right boot I must sl st into the 7th stitch from the seam. Is the seam where I fastened off? If it is, must it be seven stitches on the left or right of shoe?
yes that’s the seam and you go towards the front of the boot in both cases, so left
Hi Ashlee. Thanks so much for this pattern that makes such adorable little boots! I just finished making them for my husband’s coworker who’s having a little girl soon. I didn’t have any trouble with the pattern, but it did take a little brain power when looking at the boot, reading the pattern and making sure I was going the right direction. Luckily I didn’t have to pull any of it out due to going the wrong direction. .😊 Merry Christmas to you and your family!
yeah the cuff is a hard one to explain but once you get it your golden
I have made many pairs of both this bootie and other patterns. My daughter has asked for some more of this bootie but wants something to make it more stable and durable on the bottom. What would you recommend using for the insole? It has to be durable and waterproof.
sounds like she’s looking for real shoes… crochet will never be waterproof – even if you cut some leather and added holes around the edge (classic sole for crochet slippers) and just started crocheting at the sides of the booties they still wouldn’t be waterproof. But they would be durable
I just finished a pair of girls booties, in white! just added the button! 🙂 I am so tickled, they are so adorable!! thank you so much for the pattern!!! 🙂
YAY! so happy to hear that! you are so welcome!
Thank you for this pattern! I’ve made four pair so far! I, too, had the same problem with having the booties curving to the same direction even though your pattern is symmetrical; therefore, I replaced some of the sc with hdc on the sole where it was curving. This worked great! I have made these in multicolor (7 colors on each bootie) to match a hat and blanket I made, made them taller with two buttons, and varied the stiches on the top to match the hat. I love this pattern! I’d post a photo of the multicolor booties, but I don’t see how to include a photo. Thank you again for such a cute pattern!
it curves for me too, I just block them and it fixes the problem.
I just made my first set for a baby girl. I used white yarn and light pink decorative buttons. I love they way it turns out. Thank you for sharing this pattern for free. This is my new go to pattern for baby booties.
you are so very welcome, I’m so glad you like the booties!
I don’t see a print button…. Would love to try to make these while sitting in the car waiting for my daughter’s practice.
