I also think they are WAY cuter and with the addition of being simpler to crochet, the pattern also works (which is kinda important when you want to crochet yourself some cuteness!)

Now would be a good time to check the sidebar for all the ways you can follow HodgePodge so you don’t miss out!!

Original post follows below:

I grew up in the city–which is as far from the country as one can get, but when I saw these adorable cowboy booties posted on Ravelry, I knew I had to make a pair. So I set to work trying to figure them out and the results were less than spectacular…

Yikes…What happened??

See what happens when I count stitches in a baby boot

Horrified by my first attempt, I decided to deconstruct the basic pattern and turn all that counting into plain common sense and my next pair came out like this:

No counting and perfect every time!

So now that I’ve figured them out, it’s time to pass on that knowledge so that you can take a crack at these little cuties!

To get started, you’ll need to create the sole. The sole for these boots is identical to the Loopy Boots. For an infant size, try either an F or G hook. The smaller the hook, the tinier the finished boot. Mine were worked with a size H and ended up approximately 5 inches from heel to toe.

The cowboy boot pattern follows the same basic principles as the Loopy Stitch boots. (The only slight difference is worked directly after you join your new color. You will be working one round of single crochet. After that round, you will decrease as shown in the video.)

If you’ve watched part two in that series than my decrease rounds should be a snap for you to figure out. Skip this next video and jump right into the project.

If not, I suggest you backtrack and watch those decrease rounds now so you won’t be lost when they pop up in the cowboy boot tutorial:

Now that your sole is complete and you have a good idea about how I count my decrease stitches, let’s get on with the project!

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I made these cute little boots for my great nephew. They are the first item I have ever crocheted that wasn’t flat and I think they turned out pretty well. .I don’t know how to post a pic on here,

      The (#) is the number of chains for the larger size. If you are crocheting the small size you would use 12, but if you were making the larger size, you would use 14.

    Thnks for this pattern! My son fell in love with these as soon as he saw them. He’s foot is 7″ snug. Im new to crocheting – are there any “rules” you can follow to make different sizes? i did find one clip for making a sole to your own size but thats it. Any help would be appreciated…I can understand your a busy mummy!

      Thanks for the question! You can size these up by following the same pattern for the largest size and using a larger hook and thicker yarn :) That’s the simplest way to do it and as long as you don’t strangle your yarn too much you should be able to get them dramatically larger just with those adjustments!

    My soul turned out great but Imade the mistake of using a thick and quick homespun yarn as a beginner! It’s an absolutely adorable slipper but it got kind of miss shappen and I doubt I could get one to match! Anyone know any one-footed babies? I have”a” really cute warm fuzzy slipper here. I will try this again. I was looking for the loopy boot and couldn’t find the end pattern for it though. Thank you I really enjoyed your video especially where you showed how to do the stitch yo were working on. That was VERY helpful. i will be back!

    • Marissa August 21, 2012 at 1:33 pm Reply

      You can cheat the sole larger by just sizing your hook up to an H or even an I. Doing it that way, follow the instructions for the large and see where your finished sole ends up!

        Thanks Marissa, I was wondering the same thing. I have 3 grandsons ages 5, 4, and 1 and mommy has requested some slippers and these are perfect! I don’t have a printer so I’ll copy this by hand I guess. My son (26) would like a pair of dragon slippers if you know of a pattern.
