Introduction: Baby Moccasins Crochet Pattern

This contest inspired me to write my first crochet pattern ever! My baby girl is now 3 months old so I made these for her (they come out to be about 3.56 inches). My goal in this pattern is for each step to be clear enough that someone who knows little to nothing about crocheting would be able to replicate these moccasins.

Supplies:

  • Main color of worsted weight yarn (I used tan)
  • Accent color of worsted weight yarn (I used dark brown)
  • Size F crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery Needle

Step 5: Adding the Fringe

Using accent yarn color:

  • make a slip knot
  • sl into the top of the first stitch on the left side of the moccasin
  • chain 7
  • sl into next stitch moving around across the top of the moccasin
  • repeat all the way around the top of the moccasin
  • fasten off leaving 16 inches of a tail

Sew the fringe flat:

  • fold the top round of the moccasin over so the bottom of the fringe reaches about 3/4 of the way down the shoe
  • using the tail, sew the bottom of the fringe to the moccasin so it lays flat instead of curling up
  • sew all the way around and then weave in the ends of the accent color

Step 6: Shoe Lace

Using the accent color:

  • ch 40
  • fasten off
  • weave chain around the top of the moccasin using your embroidery needle
  • pull through and tie in a bow at the front of the moccasin

Step 7: Make Another!

Repeat steps 2-6

Step 8: All Done!

You can now put your cute moccasins on your little 3 month baby or gift them to someone who recently had a baby. You could also use them as a decoration because they are just that cute!
