easiest crochet baby bootiesThese crocheted baby booties are so cute and so very easy!  They are one of the first things I crocheted.    I added cute polka-dot buttons and little flower embellishments I picked up at Walmart.

What you need:

J (6 mm) crochet hook
any worsted weight yarn ( I used Super Saver Turqua)
optional embellishments ribbon buttons etc and a needle and thread if you plan to use any of the aforementioned items.

What you need to know:

single crochet
slip stitch

***Here’s your sign – Buttons are a choking hazard!  Make sure they are secure and you tell the parents.

Here’s the video tutorial I used to make these:

I don’t know if I have mentioned it before but I have ADD and I had it before it was cool cause I’m old and well back then they didn’t have a name for it until I was well into high school.  So what’s my point?  I think the internet and social media can really get me going in lots of directions.   Like if I didn’t have all this maybe I’d have some crochet pattern in a book but now at the click of a mouse all types of free crochet patterns and video tutorials.   And I want to do them all!!!

So… Today I’m on Facebook and I see a contest thing to win a set of crochet hooks.  Well you have to go to YouTube to enter.   Did that and then somehow ran across a video tutorial for Entrelac Crochet.  Needless to say I grabbed some yarn and a hook and off I went.  It’s easy and pretty fun to work.   Below is what I did today.  🙂  Ahh another project.  I need to know when to say no!
