Baby Dolphin Booties 2017


“What are you going to do when you finish your coffee?”
“Well, I probably make a video of a new pattern.”

This way started my afternoon today. My little one was sleeping and I was hoping to have enough time for finishing this video pattern. Although the video is in Czech, you can switch off the sound and just follow the English instructions. I hope it will work well for you.

PDF format of this pattern could be purchased at at my “Etsy shop” :).

Baby shoes Dolphin 2017
Size: 9 cm, it is for a one month old baby

Weight: Super Bulky
Meterage: 100 g (3.53 ounces)/120 m (135 yards) (! be careful original yarn Himalaya is a little bit thinner than Bernat blanket yarn so the result might vary)
Hook size: 6 mm (I crochet pretty tight so you may need smaller hooks)
Time: at about 2-3 hours

US terminology:
MC – Magic Circle
Sl St – slip stitch
CH – chain stitch
SC – single crochet
HDC –  half double crochet
Shell pattern – three SC into one loop
Each row starts with either 1 CH = Single Crochet or 1 loose CH = Half Double Crochet. You can end with SlSt or crochet around with the help of marker. This pattern is written in a column style the way you crochet.

HDC into second chain from the hook (that is to the seventh loop, you need to have another six free loops to follow the pattern) (here is the heel of the shoe)

5xHDC (one HDC into one CH)
2xHDC (two HDC into the chain you make the very first HDC)

2nd row:
one loose CH as a substitution for the first HDC, another HDC into the same place (you need to find the small gap on the right site of the substitution, make HDC here)

    Loving your patterns. Some don’t seem to be in English? Can I find them somewhere? I have my first grandchild due soon and would love to be able to make some of your beautiful sweaters and booties.

    Thank-you for translating and sharing your cute pattern. I was looking for a pattern to use chenille yarn scraps and I found the perfect pattern!

    Prosím vás, co znamená “N+PDS” hned zpočátku 2. řady? Děkuju.

    • Reply Krampolinka 17.10.2023 at 18:09

      N je tzv. náhrada, tj. dvě řetízková očka místo prvního PDS (má to stejnou výšku) a k tomu háčkujeme PDS.
