Christmas Stocking Baby Booties Free Crochet Pattern

This is a fairly simple pattern that can be used as a baby bootie or a Christmas ornament. In the picture, the one on the left has the cuff turned down. This pair is heading for an NICU in Kansas but it is 3 1/2" and should fit a newborn. I used an F hook and Lion Brand Microspun yarn which is a very soft sports weight yarn. So most people would probably get this size using a G or H hook, you may have to experiment.
Ch 3 at beginning of each rd counts as 1 dc
Ch 4 and sl st to form loop.
With white
Rd 1 ch 3 and 11 dc in loop. (12 sts)
With red
Rd 2: ch 3 *2 dc in next stitch dc in next repeat from * (18 sts)
Rds 3, 4 and 5: dc in each dc
Heel with white
Row 1: Attatch to any dc and ch 3, dc in all but 3 dc
Row 2 and 3: dc in each dc and end leaving 6 in tail of yarn
Sew back of heel together by using the back loops only
Join Red yarn at back where it was sewn together
Rd 1: ch3 9 dc evenly spaced down side, dc in each dc left open, 9 dc evenly spaced on other side and join
RD 2 and 3: dc in each dc end red yarn
With white
Rd 4 and 5: dc in each dc
If your making booties either ch 80 for tie or you can use ribbon. For ornament when you get to end of rd 5 ch 10 and join for hanging loop.

how adorable ! We have 2 cousins that are having babies this summer - these will make the perfect holiday gifts for them.

However, I cannot determine what you did for Row 3 and how many stitches you wound up with - it does seem that it is another increase row. Can you let me know what the Row directions are?

No, it's not an increase row, I fixed the directions and they should be alright now. Thanks for reading my blog and pointing this out to me.
