Baby Boots and Ballet Pumps

One of the first things I tried when I was learning to crochet were some little baby boots and I developed something of an obsession with them – I just love how quick and easy they are to make and that they make the perfect gift to accompany a blanket or for those you just want to post a little something to. I’ve finally got around to re-launching my Wrap Around Baby Boots and also launched my Beautiful Ballet Pumps so here they are for you!

Wrap Around Baby Boots


Wrap Around Baby Crochet Boots by HanJan Crochet - crochet pattern

These little lovelies have always been one of my most popular patterns. I’ve given them a facelift with some more detailed texture, changed the cuff slightly to make it look like it’s knitted and added two new sizes too – maybe more than a facelift then hey?! Here’s everything you need to know about them:

Watch out soon for my new series of free blanket patterns and tutorials – I’ve decided it’s time to work my way through my (rather extensive) yarn stash. Obviously this is only so that I can buy more but I’m making lots of colourful blankets to share with you in classic crochet stitches and will be popping them up soon for you to enjoy. Let me know if there is a particular stitch you enjoy as am always on the lookout for more to add!
