					Crochet wrap around button baby boots-
girls and boys
UPDATE: after some confusion I separated the pattern, the larger version is still right here,
comparable to a size 4, and the smaller crochet wrap around button infant boot is on it’s own
post.

I am SO excted to share this tutorial with you. I saw this picture and I couldn’t help but try to
create my own version of it! My cousin just had twins last week so I made a boy and girl
version! Of course I made them to fit my model so they won’t fit the twins for SOME time. But
they are precious!




Yes, I made my sweet little boy wear the girls boots for this picture. Better than a skirt or
something, right? I love the scallops on the girl version, but the boy version is adorable too! The
really sad thing is he’s already out grown these boots as well.
I started with a size to fit my model, Baby Boy. I ended up with boots that are around a size 4~
 YES, 4 and they area already tight on him. According to a shoe website that’s like a 9-12 month
shoe for the average babies feet! I was going to share just that size, but a friend, Summer, asked
me to make a pair for her baby, a size 1. So I figured it out, and added those numbers to the
pattern at the last min!

ch 15
row 1- dc in 4th ch from hook -first 3ch counts as first dc, dc in next 11 ch, dc in first sc (the one
you sl st in), dc 24 times (there will be 4 spaces left), skip 3 spaces, sc in last space. (39)

row 4 scallops (girls)- turn, 5dc in second dc, *skip 1dc, sc in next dc, skip 1dc, 5dc in next dc*,
repeat around (10 shells), sc down the side (I do 2 for each row so a total of 6 down the side),
continuing around sc across the bottom along the original chain (13), sl st, cut yarn and weave in
ends
row 4 simple (boys)- ch1, turn, sc across top (39), down the side (6) and across the bottom chain
(13), sl st, cut yarn and weave in ends
Do you love them??? Considering the twins are HALF the size of Baby boy when he was born
(let alone they don’t have his massive hobbit feet) I doubt they’ll even come close to fitting until
they are at LEAST 9 months, maybe a year?? So next winter, perfect!




Don’t forget to add a button where ever you like and your done! I placed mine at the bottom of
the 6th dc over from the front- I might go lower next time… or maybe two smaller buttons?
And one final picture, I thought you might want an inside shot so you can see how it wraps a
bit… I’m still so very much in love with these boots. And when I finish Baby Boy’s I’ll post
picture’s!!!
