Crochet Baby Slippers- Free pattern

It has a total do-over now to include two more sizes. When I look back at my pattern writing skills from three years ago to now, there is a big improvement and I am so glad I kept at this skill even on my lowest days.

This is a relatively simple pattern to crochet. It uses two basic stitches, half double crochet and single crochet. It is first worked in rounds then in rows, after that we join the back of the shoe and do some trimming.

The ornament on top of the shoe is completely optional. You could decide to make one as in the pattern, use a button instead or just leave the shoe without an ornament.

The pattern comes in five sizes, you will find all five in the printable PDF
