Crochet Boots (Free pattern)

Crochet Boots (Free pattern)

If you like to cozy up to a crochet project when the weather turns chilly, then a pretty pair of crochet boots is the perfect project for a winter evening by the fire or with a piping hot mug of your favorite warm beverage. The Audrey Boots from Mamachee on Ravelry are adorable, especially with the two-tone coloring.

These would make a great gift for tweens, teens, and adults, as house slippers or dorm shoes. Pair them with some thick wool socks and everybody’s toes will remain toasty throughout the winter season.

You’ll need bulky yarn (suggested: Lion Brand Jiffy Solid), two sizes of crochet hooks (sizes “I” and “L”), scissors, and a tapestry needle. You’ll also want to crochet a gauge swatch of seven stitches and four rows, which should equal about two inches. If you want to add some detail, a few buttons can be sewn on after the boots are complete.

The pattern comes in Women’s sizes 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10. The Audrey Boots pattern can be purchased on Ravelry as a PDF.

However, if you’d prefer to use a free pattern, there are several to choose from on Pinterest as well as Ravelry.

We found a pattern for re-using flip-flop soles to create a more durable boot at the Make & Do Crew, who not only provided a photo tutorial, but a video tutorial as well. Their pattern calls for Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn, Vanna’s Choice yarn, three sizes of hooks (“B”, “K”, & “L”), a tapestry needle, a sharp tool, stitch markers, buttons, thread, a ruler, glue, and scissors.

There’s also a free pattern for slipper boots from Yarn Inspirations that come in sizes for the entire family (suggested yarn: Bernat Softee Chunky). You’ll also want to crochet a gauge swatch of ten stitches and nine rows for a measurement of four inches with a “K” size hook.

All of these patterns are listed as “Easy” so don’t let the look of the project intimidate you. These boots may take a little time to shape but the extra work is worth it, and you won’t have to learn any new, complicated stitches in order to make them. You will, however, impress everyone with your shoe-making abilities!

If you want to purchase the Audrey Boots pattern from Mamachee, you can do so on her Ravelry page. If you’d like to try the flip-flop sole crochet boots, you can find the pattern and video tutorial at Make & Do Crew. And if you’re interested in crocheting several pair of easy-to-make boots for the family, Yarn Inspiration’s pattern is available as a PDF.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    by on December 8, 2017 - 0 Comments

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
