Newborn Hat & Booties (girl)

This is a simple yet very cute hat and booties for your little one. This pattern is for newborns but can be easily adjusted for older babies. I am actually making sets for boys and girls. But this post is for girls only, I will post the boys pattern earlier next week.

Materials:
Size - Newborn

Stitches Used:
  • Magic Ring
  • st(s) - stitch (es)
  • sc - single crochet
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • dc2gr - double crochet 2 together
  • sl st - slip stitch

Instructions:


Hat
R1. With your 5.0mm crochet hook, make a magic ring. Ch 2, dc 12 into the ring. Closed the ring tightly and join with a sl st in the first dc. Ch 2.

R2. 2 dc in each stitch around, join. Ch 2. (24 sts)

R3. Dc in first stitch, 2 dc in next stitch. Repeat all around, join. Ch 2. ( 36 sts)

R4-R9. Dc in each stitch around. Repeat all around, join. Ch 2. (36 sts)

R10. Slip stitch in each stitch around, join. Fasten off.
Weave all ends.

That's how easy the hat is. If you want a bigger size, just continue to add a stitch in every repeat after round 3.

For the flowers, I followed Crochet Rochelle Double Crochet Flower. And use Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread Number 3.

Booties

R1. Using your 3.5mm crochet hook, chain 13, 2 sc in first st, hdc, dc 10, dc 5 in last st of chain 13. Now let's keep working the other side of the chains. Dc 10, hdc, 2sc in last, join with a sl st and ch 1.

R2. 2 sc in each first two stitches, hdc, dc 10. Dc 2 in each of the next 5 stitches. Dc 10, hdc, 2 sc in each of the last two stitches. Join with a sl st and ch 1.

R3. Sc in each stitch around but only in the back loops.  Join, chain 2. (40 sts)

R4. Dc 14, dc2gr 5 times , then dc 16.  Join, chain 1.

R5. Sc, sc decrease, sc, sc decrease, then sc 6. Sc decrease 4 times, and sc 8, sc decrease, sc, sc decrease, and last sc in last st. Fasten off and weave all ends,

For the strap it is optional. At first I did not make straps for the booties but then realized that babies have different sizes of feet so some might not fit well, so straps are needed, but still optional. 

Straps

Attached yarn to the 7th st from where you joined your work, then chain 12, and then sl st into the 6th chain from the hook to form a loop for the buttons, then sl st all the way to end. Fasten off and weave all ends. Just remember to attached your straps in opposite. Left and also one in right side.

Attached your buttons adjacent to your straps.  

For the booties flower I used my own patternthe Flower Wreath. Just chain 12, then make the flower, then chain 12 again and go back just like the flower wreath by single crocheting each st of the strap. Then to make a double straps for the flower, chain 12 again and attached it to the flower, chain 12 again, then go back by single crocheting every st of the strap. Then attached your flower to your little shoes.

So that's it. I hope you all learn something and enjoy this post. If you have any questions, comments or suggestion just leave a message on the comment box and I will gladly answer them. Thank you and God bless!
