Crochet Baby Moccasins Free Pattern

Crochet baby slippers free pattern

Is it just me or does it seem like everything miniature is absolutely adorable? Making things for a baby brings me so much joy!  There is something about new life that just gets my spirits up like nothing else.  I can’t be the only one that gets all fluttery and excited over these things!

After years of trying, my wonderful cousin is finally expecting her first baby and she is having a boy!  I knew that I had to make her something really special, and of course, adorable.  I decided on a pair of baby booties and a hat (the hat will be in another post soon!).

So I knew I was going to be making slippers, but then I needed inspiration!  I skimmed over a bunch of pictures of baby slippers and saw a few pairs that I liked.  In one slipper I liked how the bottoms were made.  In another it was that the ties were weaved all around the slipper and on another I loved how the top of the slipper had stripes!  After many, many alterations to every piece, I finally had a pattern that would work!

If you ever get to make these, you will be blown away at how easy it is and how quickly they come together.  They are made up in 3 basic steps; the bottom, the back and the top.  If you did make these, I would love to hear how it worked out for you!

Materials:

  • size F/5 – 3.75mm hook
  • embroidery needle
  • scissors
  • 1-3 colors of equal weight yarn.  I used Red Heart super saver yarn.
  • stitch markers

 

Abbreviations:

  • ch – chain
  • st – stitch
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • sc -single crochet
  • slst – slip stitch

 

Pattern:

BOTTOM:

Begin by chaining 11 stitches. hdc into the second st from your hook.  Continue the bottom using the pattern in the link here.  All stitches are the same just the size of the hook and the initial chain is smaller.

Once your bottom is done it will look like this.  Really small and VERY cute.

You are going to need to make 2 of these then move onto the next step.

BACK:

Using stitch markers, mark out the half way point on the bottoms.

Row 1:  Slst to join your work at one stitch marker.  Now, you are going to begin to work your way around to the other stitch marker,  The direction you go doesn’t matter because the bottom is identical from one end to the other.  Hdc into the first stitch. Hdc 1 st in each st until you reach the other marker.  Once you reach the last marker, ch 2.  You can now remove the stitch markers from your slipper.

Row 2-7: Working back to the other side, hdc into the first st.  Hdc 1 stitch in each stitch for the row.  At the end, ch 2 and turn.

*At the end of row 7, ch 1 then tie off your end.  Work in any loose ends.*

Your slippers are almost finished.  One more step.

TOPS:

**Note, if you would like to do the stripes, just change colour every 2 rows.  I did not carry the colour through as I went.  I would simply drop one colour then pick up the other.**

Row 1:  Ch 13.  Sc into the second st from your hook.  Sc in each st for the row for a total of 12 stitches. Ch 1 and turn.

Row 2-6: Sc in each st for the row for a total of 12 stitches.  Ch 1 then turn.

Row 7: Decrease in your first st. Sc in the next 8 st then 1 decrease for the last 2 stitches for a total of 10 stitches for the row.  Ch 1 then turn.

Row 8: Decrease in your first st.  Sc in the next 6 stitches then 1 decrease for the last 2 stitches.  You will have a total of 8 stitches in this row.  Ch 1 then turn.

Row 9: Decrease in your first st. Sc in the next 4 stitches then 1 decrease in the last 2 stitches.  You will have a total of 6 stitches for the row.  Ch 1 then tie off your end.

Assembly:

Line your top up with the bottom toe to toe.  Using a pin or stitch marker to hold it in place is definitely advised.  I didn’t and suffered for it. Once your have the toe in place, hold one side in place and begin to sew it together using the embroidery needle.  I attached some of the top to the back of the slipper as well as the bottom so that the opening was larger, but it does not matter how you attach it.  Work your way all around the slipper top then tie off your end.  Work in all loose ends of yarn.

Cut a tie for the slipper about 18 inches long.  Weave this around the top of the backing of the slipper so that it can tie in the front.

You can add as many ‘extras’ as you like.  I wanted to add some tassels to the sides, so I did.  I also wanted to braid the tie around the slipper so I did that too!  Be imaginative and have fun with it!  I hope your slippers turned out great!

    Dear Stephanie;
    Thank you so much for sharing free patterns. As a beginner it means a lot to not have to make that purchase until I am more adept at this art form. I have a lot to learn but your ideas are a blessing. Have a great move and take care.
