VERY CUTE! I downloaded the free pdf pattern but was unable to print it out.  Any chance of getting the instructions added to this page?? Thanks for sharing your design & I love the colors you chose!

I found an error in the instructions. When you get to the left bootie instructions, the instructions for Row 2 incorretly states, "...sc in first 2 sc, work Row 2 of quiver patt." This SHOULD read, "...work Row 1 of quiver patt." That was the only way I could get the pattern to work. I also got stumped when I started on the Shape Sides portion of the pattern. The way it states "(RS) Ch1, beg Row 2 of even moss patt. . ." made no sense to me. I had to put the booties away until it suddenly occured to me that you don't start the even moss patt at its round 1, you start at round 2, even though you're starting Round 1. Very confusing.

Also when you're creating the quiver patt, it's not clear that "tr2tog" means that you create the stitch in the same skipped sc as the last tr created. Then you make a tr st in the next skipped sc 2 rows down. I found it easy to locate by remembering that you stitched 3 sc in that first row then skipped a sc with a ch. Once you learn to see the 3 sc to the skipped sc, this stitch is fun to create. Here is a shot of the Mukluk's I just completed.

I also find this pattern difficult to follow, but I trudging along. Thank you, Shellie2355, for correcting the error you found. This really helped me.

On a different note...although I checked my gauge prior to starting, my muluks are continuing growing in size.  My "newborn-sized" muluks would more realistically fit a 6-12 month old. I'm not sure how this happened.

Love these!!! The color, the shape, everything! But I'd need them in children-adult sizes!!! Sadly no more babies in the family (well for now! : p). Thanks!

I love this pattern.. but i having a lot of trouble doing it... please help me understand this part:

How to beg this: 

Shape sides:

Rnd 1: (RS) Ch 1, beg Row 2 of even moss patt (see Stitch Guide): work 7 sts in row-ends down edge of toe cap,

7 sts in bottom ridge lps of toe cap, 7 sts in row-ends up opposite edge of toe cap, and in each ch, sl st in

first st to join, place marker (pm) in sl st to mark beg of rnd, do not turn—44 (44, 48, 48) sts.

Rnds 2–6: Note: Beg working in a spiral without joining.

Work in even moss patt.

Join sides to sole: With WS tog, pin sole and sides tog at middle of front and back and the middle of each side.

Working through both thicknesses, sc sides and sole tog. Note: You will need to sc multiple sts from side

to sole. Fasten off and weave in ends.

If any one can traslate in word i can understand!! =)

I finally got the computer to load all of the "buttons and such" and was able to click on it and load the pattern....thank you anyway!

on Jan 12, 2012 12:07 PM

Trying to see if I understand this ?

When beggining how many stitches to start.

Then go to Even Moss Pattern, and after that move on to quiver Pattern ?

or do you do the back patterns and finish off by workng around the Mukluk ?

 

I would love to figure this out, anyone that can help simplify this please ?

Hi Bonnie,

You work the sole first. Then you fasten off and work the main section of the bootie in mass pattern, joining it to the sole on the last round before fastening that section off. Finally you join the yarn and work the quiver section boot top.

Good luck!

Hi cpsnmar,

Did you try clicking the green "Go There Now" button next to the main image above? That should take you to the Baby free eBook download page. Please let me know if the link is not working for you.

Thank you Shellie2355 for identifying the error and for explaning a quiver pattern a little. That was very helpful. This was a first project in 15 years of break so I do have some mistakes. I really struggled with the left flap but I like the final outcome. Here is my version, I used 2 of BERNAT cotton 42.5g/1.5oz, westport color, hook 5mm and button just for decorations instead I attached velcro inside.

Ok, like a lot of other people I am REALLY confused.  I am 52 and I have been crocheting since I was 8 years old. (thank you grandma)  I get to the part where you chan 23 ( I now have a small square basically with a long chain attached.)  It says to sl st to beg.  That makes a circle yes?  I think my problem is I ended up with a tube going up from the tongue.  I love these and really want to make them for my granddaughters (one here and one on the way)  I guess I will stare at these photos again later and try again.  Or try using a base bootie I hae and adding a top to it to make my own! lol  But I would really rather conquer this one.  Could you possibly post a few extra pics of each step like what the toe looks like when finished before you start sides?  It looks like many are having problems with the same steps.

 

Thanks 

Judy

Oh oh I finally got it!  at least how to work the sides.  Thanks to the side view of the  pair done by another reader.  It just finally clicked that the toe piece was the other HALF of the circle of chains.  If you lay them down flat and think of them as like the bottom of the shoe, it finally clicked that I was working in the round of the outside of the whole.  Not the inside of the chain.  duh.  Now I'm excited.

 

Thanks

Well 3 days and 5 pull out and start overs, I got one done that I was satisified with.

  I can;t seem to get my toe to blend in like yours, but I like it!  Thanks for sharing.

I see many questions here, not all answered.  This really is a difficult pattern to follow in written form.  For those of you who do not know what ESC and FSC is, it is very helpful if you google these stitches and see an example.  An ESC is an extended single crochet (it gives a "connecting leg" for the freestanding foundation single crochet you need to do for the button tab. (fsc)

Insert hook in indicated st or row, yo, pull up lp, (2 loops on hook) yo, pull through 1 lp on hook, (2 loops still on hook) yo, pull through 2 lps on hook.  Now you basically have a free standing single crochet twith 2 stitches that allows you to connect the tab to the rest of the collar of the boot.  After you do the ESC you start the foundation single crochet by inserting hook in second chain from hook (base of the esc) yo and pull through one loop.  Insert hook through the stitch just made on the left.  yo and pull  through one loop, yo and pull through both loops.  you now just created a chain base and a single crochet all at one time.  Repeat this 6 more times.  If you can't picture this, go to you tube and watch a video.

When doing the bottom of the slipper, after the chain 23, you connect it to the opposite side of the toe so it looks like you have a handbag with a long strap.  If you lay that flat on the table, picture crocheting on the outside of the object for forming  the "in the round" part of the slipper.  As you do the stitches it will automatically curve down and create the shoe.  You will connect this to the flat bootie piece.  Then you will start the top of the boot.

do row 1 of Right bootie

do row 2 of right bootie by doing row 1 of qiver pattern. (ch 1, sc in first 3 sc, * ch 1, ski next sc, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * across, turn.  YOU WILL NOT CONTINUE TO STEP 3 OF QUIVER

Do row 3 of Right bootie pattern BUTTONHOLE ROW) ch1, hdc in first 2 sts, ch 1, sk next st, hdc in next st, finish rest of row with instructions of row 2 of quiver pattern.

Rows 4 -6 of Right Bootie  Use instructions for rows 3-5 of quiver pattern making sure last two stitches are either 2 sc or 2hdc depending on which row you are on.

I hope that helped and not confused you.  It was tough having to skip back and forth in the directions.  I did cheat on the left bootie.  It took me so long to learn the right bootie top I got cross eyed when I got to the left bootie.  Rather than try and re learn the cuff, I worked the wrong side using the right bootie pattern and got the second bootie done in just a few hours versus a few days. (it worked surprisingly well)
