Crochet Baby slippers

Hurray! This is the first post on LoopinglyMade and I am so glad you’re reading it. It’s taken a while to launch; what with so many things going on at the same time.

This is the first baby shoes I designed. I remember my first attempts to learn to crochet baby shoes. After 3 tries, I disliked making them, abandoned it for months, then one day talked myself into trying again.

That was when understanding dawned in trickles and spurts. I’m not perfect yet, but I am getting the hang of it. So, I gave this Caramel Baby Slippers a try. It came out quite nicely. It would be good to mention that this is my first written pattern, so if there is a mistake, bear with me. I’m improving my pattern writing.

This is a very easy pattern to follow, by just adding more or less rounds you can customize it.
We have here sizes for 0-3, 3-6, 6 and 12 months old.


It’s ok if you sell items you made using LM patterns. And I’d really love it if you mentioned it was from LM.
And please, do not sell or mass produce LM patterns- (the only exception is if you are donating the items made to charity)

Thanks. You can read more on LM policy here.
