I agree that we should have a picture of the booties in progress, as each step is mastered. For a person who is making baby booties for the first time, they may not understand the basic workings of how the sole is laid out- and having a picture of it has REALLY helped me in the past! Nothing really special with these just a basic Mary Jane style. And that is okay!

These are so cute. I read the instructions and they couldn't be easier. I think a beginner could handle thus project. The pastels are cute but I am going to make a pair in white and navy blue for a friends three month old baby boy. I am working on a sort of sailor set and they will be perfect.

This is an easy pattern to work up, but as with most projects that are only on the main page, I debated about whether more photos were needed. It would be helpful if it were pointed out which rows form the sole and which form the body of the shoe. I do appreciate that the instructions are adapted for three different sizes. That saves time having to figure out stitches myself.

How did you know? I do have an upcoming baby shower very soon! Wow finding this pattern was perfect timing. These booties are too cute. Not sure whether the new baby will be a girl or a boy, but these booties look so easy and so fast that I can make a pair for both in no time. Thanks for sharing your cute and easy pattern.

These baby booties are so cute and easy to make. New crocheters should try to make these booties. You will be able to practice crocheting in the round.
