This was my gift to my nephew on his first birthday; a set of Baby Beanie and Baby Booties. I just love the colour combination – Blue and Chocolate. It is so calm and peaceful.
It was difficult to set up on one pattern. I followed 2 different blogs to make this set. To give my style, I used a chocolate fur wool for the edges of both; the Beanie and Booties. Both of this wool is specifically for babies.
I opted for SmoothFoxLover – Kool Kids Hat. Donna’s pattern is a combination of Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet (DC). This pattern can be used to make hats for an adult too by the increasing the count. It gives a certain textured look that can be worn as casual winter hats. Pom-Pom adds cute look for kids.
I liked the RepeatCrafterMe – Cuffed Baby Booties. Sarah has interesting patterns and designs in her blogs. This pattern looked cute. I continued with blue colour yarn to make the complete booties and added a fur edge that could be folded to give a small boot look or could be worn as long boots.
Non-Slippery Soles: to add/paste or glue a layer of non-slippery silicone gel/rubber coating spray. Even though the floor has carpet, the baby yarn is too soft. The base of the booties will make the kid slip or fall. I used clear silicone gel to give invisible coating look at the base of the booties.
- Height of the baby hat: 7″
- Circumference of the baby hat: 14″-16″
The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.
- Size of the baby booties sole length: 5″
- You can add fur yarn, Crab stitch for edging.
- You can add small pom-poms to the outer side of booties edge.
- You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give more cuteness to those little feet.
- The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
