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

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)
row 7- ch 1, sc in same sc, sc 7 times, sc2tog, dc2tog, dc3tog, dc2tog, sc2tog, sc around, sl st to first sc (27)
row 8- ch 1, sc in same sc, sc 5 times, sc2tog, dc, dc3tog, dc, sc2tog, sc around, sl st to first sc, cut yarn weave in ends. (23)
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.
