Cute to Boot: Free Fun Lace-Up Boots Pattern

Babies will kick up their heels for this free bootie pattern.

Dear Crochet-Lover,

Have you ever noticed how much babies love their own feet? It makes sense—feet are free toys right on their own bodies: something to stare at, grab, and maybe even try to eat! Feet don’t fall out of the play yard out of reach or get put on a shelf at bedtime. They’re always available, always entertaining. And sometimes, those feet have booties on them, with eye-catching colors, fascinating details, and sometimes little faces on them baby can babble at.

Adults love baby feet, too—kissing them, counting toes, and snuggling them into cute, cozy booties. Booties not just for warmth, but for dress-up, fashion, and fun. Crocheters with babies in their lives are always on the lookout for baby booties patterns to make for their favorite young ones. Handmade booties make a great baby shower gift!

There’s one place crocheters can always count on to have the most adorable—and dependable—bootie patterns: I Like Crochet! After all, I Like Crochet magazine is a premium digital publication featuring dozens of exclusive patterns with professional photos and tech-edited designs.

I Like Crochet’s patterns are not only gorgeous, modern and stylish, but they’re also designed by designers from all over the world. You may not have experienced crochet the I Like Crochet way yet, but here’s something for you that we know you’re going to love:

Now you can get a free crochet booties pattern from I Like Crochet in our brand-new freebie, Fun Lace-Up Boots pattern.

Yes, it’s really from I Like Crochet, and yes, it’s absolutely free. This freebie includes a booties pattern with four sizes for each phase of a child’s first year.

These Fun Lace-Up Boots are so cute and so easy to make. Can’t you just imagine wiggling baby’s tiny feet into them? These booties are a cinch to put on because they have a tongue that opens wide so you can maneuver those tiny moving targets into each boot with ease. Unlike some baby booties that seem to always fall off, this pattern’s “high-top” design and laces keep them firmly—but gently—on baby’s feet.

Free crochet boots pattern: Fun Lace-Up Boots

This darling free pattern, Fun Lace-Up Boots, is by Janaya Chouinard of Canada. Janaya’s patterns for kids are so popular, and they’re always fun to crochet. The pattern includes instructions for four different sizes, from 0-3 months to 9-12 months. You work the pattern with two strands of yarn in a spiral pattern: when you get to the end of one round, continue to the next round without joining.

Customize these baby boots in colors to reflect baby’s favorites or to match their outfits. Or choose an eye-catching combination that will entertain baby every time they notice their feet. This crochet pattern is so easy, you will want to make several pairs.

Like all I Like Crochet patterns, this one is carefully edited so there are no frustrating, time-consuming pattern errors or missing instructions, and it has been selected just for this special freebie by the crochet-loving editors of I Like Crochet.

In fact, with this free pattern we include a Master Abbreviations list, plus basic stitch tutorials—right in the pattern. It’s like having your own crochet tutor helping you along.

Basic stitch tutorials include:

  • Foundation chain
  • Single Crochet
  • Double Crochet
  • Half Double Crochet
  • Treble Crochet

In fact, the pleasure you get from crochet is multiplied many times over when you choose an I Like Crochet pattern! And let’s face it, a lot of the patterns and designs out there just aren’t that special – they can be repetitive, uninspired, or simply boring.

Here’s how it works: We carefully choose talented designers, work closely with them to create new and unique designs for our publications, and make sure our amazing tech editor tests out the patterns, so that even crochet novices can successfully create these projects.

Not everyone takes this much care with their crochet patterns – but at I Like Crochet, we wouldn’t do it any other way. After all, we’re crochet-lovers ourselves! We wouldn’t dream of offering you anything that we wouldn’t love to stitch.

I know you may be thinking that free patterns are trouble – because very often, they are. You wind up having to unravel your work halfway through, figure out some problem on your own, and start over.

But this is a genuine, well-edited and well-loved I Like Crochet pattern, and now we want to share it with more crocheters, so we’re giving it away for FREE. It’s our way of sharing the love with the entire crochet community!

    I find this pattern confusing. I finally figured out all the hdc 2 or 3 togs and dc 2 or 3 togs, but what about the hdc? And I’m on round 3 of the Vamp and it says 25, but there are 26.

    I have been crocheting for 41 years and have never tried to crochet booties, I guess it’s time I start.

    • Hi, my nick name is; Ginny,! Hi! how are you. I just 2anted to introduce myself cuz I love crocheting and wanted to make a comment on what you said about you saying you have crouched for 41 years and you never made baby booties, can I ask you how come? Did you think they would be difficult? Or you weren’t interested in making them? I’d like to get a reply if I could, I don’t have hardly any one to correspond to on this subject which I would like and maybe swap patterns between us and I think it would be fun. I didn’t tell you, but I’m 83 and just love ❤ to sew
