Loopy Love Newborn Baby Booties

After sharing the Loopy Love Blanket and matching Loopy Love Hats, I had a request for matching booties! And so, I took on the challenge of creating my very first baby booties pattern – the Loopy Love Newborn Baby Booties!

The Loopy Love Newborn Baby Booties were just too fun to make. And yes, right now they are only available in Newborn size, which is about 8 cm or 3 inches long. If you like them and want bigger sizes, please let me know! Since this my first pair of booties, I want to hear from you before I work on larger sizes.

Because of the front post decreases, this could be considered an intermediate pattern, but I think it’s ultimately pretty simple as long as you watch your posts stitches and keep counting. Plus there’s a step by step photo tutorial! The post stitches make them warm and stretchy, and match the brim of the Loopy Love Hat. And the fold over cuffs feature the signature Loopy Love stitch pattern!

Now repeat the Upper for the other sole, and then fold the cuffs over as shown. And that’s it! Not too tricksy I hope. I love these little booties, and would love to design larger sizes, and even more styles in the future, so if you would like to see them, let me know!

    I would absolutely LOVE this pattern in about a 12 month size and maybe a toddler size?! Not many booties patterns for toddler and my daughter loves to maych her baby sister. I cant give you much feedback on patterns since im pretty new to the crocheting game. But thank you so much for a beautiful pattern!

    These are just perfect Tamara! Up to toddler size, say up to pre-school size would be wonderful. Once they can walk, a few dabs of puffy paint on the soles to stop slippage would be needed. I have noticed that some babies tend to kick their booties off…those who have very active legs…so, perhaps a simple strap with buttonhole made separately then sewn into the centre back to give a simple angle strap?? Just a thought :D

      :D Thank you Amanda! :D And I’m so glad the tutorial helped too! I was afraid of comments telling me that the pattern took 30 pages to print out lol…

    I agree the tutorial is fabulous! I am a long time crocheter but booties have given me a headache:) To make in a large size, could I just use a larger hook? Thanks for sharing this pattern. I will be trying it in the future as I have made your Neon Dreams Infinity scarf for my grandson:)

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Mrs. Vee! Thank you! I think you could try a larger hook, but they’d be a bit holey, so you’d probably want to try a thicker yarn like Red Heart with Love as well. I am hoping to add larger sizes for the pattern soon too!

    Love them. All your work is beautiful! You should go ahead and make them in multiple sizes and add a hat and sweater. You know you want to and we or I would love for you to. This stitch is gorgeous in the ways you have used it. Thank you for your patterns. Th3y are lovely.

    so glad to see a left and a right sole, so many more patterns should be written this way! Thank you for sharing!

    So cute!
    Can you make these in bigger sizes, perhaps for toddlers?
    Or can you continue making booties, because they’re great!
    The stitching is so beautiful.

    LOve the booties. I have a new granddaughter coming in about a month. I am going to make her a few pairs to match her outfits. I love your patterns and directions are so easy to follow. Thanks to you she will have loopy boots and booties. I couldn’t make booties before I came across your site.

    Stephanie says

    I love these! They are completely adorable. I would love to see these in larger sizes, even up to toddler sizes. I think they would make for some adorable house shoes for toddlers.

    Judy says

    Thank you so much Tamara for all of the Loopy Lou Patterns. I too would like more sizes and as some said a bonnet/beanie and sweater too would be great though maybe having them all would be too much of a good thing on at the one time, though we could mix and match. I hope to do these and the others asap. Unfortunately I don’t have a grandchild on the way no matter how much I wish I’ve got all I’m getting though its possible I might get a great grandchild but hoping not yet. Would like them to have some fun first. Other than that these patterns are all the sweeter cause your name is Tamara and so is one of my daughters. Its not your name that makes these patterns special its the GREAT work you do. I’ll show you my work when I do them if I can work out how to upload. Thank you also for the tutoring in using the print friendly and how to cut down on what you want to print. Thanks again

      Tamara Kelly says

      :D Thank you so much Judy! There are indeed beanie patterns, linked at the top of the page, as well as the blanket. :) A bonnet is a fun idea though! And there are certainly more sizes of the booties to come. Good luck on the grandbaby front! ;)

    Hello, I got the pattern and began working on it etc.. I have a problem with what a fpdc3tpg is. Is there written instructions available for this stitch and if so could you share the written link? Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon

    • 45

      Tamara Kelly says

      Hi Maria! It’s a front post double crochet 3 together. I don’t have a video tutorial for it, but assuming you know how to work a front post double crochet if you’ve gotten to this point, then it’s just a 3 tog decrease. Start the fpdc on the first st, stop with 2 loops left on the hook, start a fpdc on the next st, stop with 3 loops left on the hook, start a fpdc on the next st, stop with 4 loops left on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops. :) Does that help?

    Maria Torres says

    Thank you for your response. Yes, this has helped a lot. I am almost done with the booties. I’ve taken the booties to a dark place and added skulls from spider mambo instead of the ruffle.. lol.. how can I share a picture of my Frankenstein monster to you? This has been truly a challenge for me since I’ve never made baby booties that were so cool
