The Pattern

Using tan yarn, ch 8.

Rnd 1: hdc in 3rd ch, dc next 4, (6 dc) in last ch, working on other side of chain hdc next 4, (3 hdc) in last loop. Join to beg ch 2.

Rnd 2: ch 1, (2 sc) in same st, sc next 8, (2 sc next st) 3 times, sc next 6, (2 sc in next st) 2 times. Join to first sc.

Rnd 3: ch 2, hd in same st, 2 hdc next st, hdc next st, sc next 6, (sc, hdc) in next st, (2 hdc) next 4, hdc next, sc 7, hd next, (2 hd) next 3. Join to ch 2.

Rnd 4: ch 2, sc in blo around. Join to ch 2. (34 st plus ch 2 – be sure to check here)

Rnd 5: ch 2, hdc 12, (sk 1, hdc 1) 4 times, hdc to end, join to ch 2.

Rnd 6: ch 2, hdc 9, (sk 1, hdc 1) 4 times, hdc to end, join to ch 2.

Rnd 7: ch 2, hdc 9, (sk 1, hdc 1) 3 times, hdc to end, join ch 2

Rnd 8: ch 3 (counts as beg ch 2 and ch 1), (sk 1, hdc in next 2, ch1) around, when you get to last ch 1, hdc in last stitch, then join to 2nd chain of the ch 3 (there should be 8 eyelets – this is important to check here)

Rnd 9-12: ch 2, hdc around, join to ch 2, fasten off

It is easiest if you go ahead and weave in these ends right now.

Rnd 13: Attach fluffy white yarn, ch 1, sc in same st, sc around. Join to first sc.

Rnd 14: ch 2, sc next, (ch 1, sc next) around. Join to ch 2. Fasten off.

Using plain white worsted weight, make a chain of approximately 17 inches. Weave through eyelets, making sure that the ends come out at the two front eyelets. Tie a bow.

What perfect timing! First, my neighbor just had her new baby girl & is bringing her home tomorrow... & second, I just bought a few extra skeins of Luscious last weekend cuz they were on sale -- only 99 cents YAY! -- & one of them is Ice! Thank you so much for this cute pattern!

Darling! Now if I could only modify the shearling jacket on the cover of Crochet! magazine (2 issues ago) to fit an infant because these boots are a perfect match!

This pattern for a short sleeved baby sweater may work. You could extend the sleeves and add the fluffy yarn as a border around the sweater and the cuffs. You could find some cute buttons or make matching ties.

For the life of me, I cannot get these to the 34 stitches at the check this point. Has anyone else had this problem?

Would be helpful to have stitch count at end of each row.

I love these booties and really want to make them for a charity I belong to but having "issues" I've counted and counted and can't get it right :(

Help!

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the hd stands for in this pattern........ I can't find any abbreviation that tells me anywhere.  I really want to make these booties for some upcoming babies being born to friends.  Thanks so much!

I have spent 3 hours trying to make these boots work and I can't get past the sole. Like a previous commenter said, I cannot get the count right at round 4, 34 stitches. I give up!

jesquimby-- I do believe that hd means half double. Usually, it is put as hdc, as half-double crochet, though we all know this is crochet. I have seen several patterns leave out the c in their patterns, because it can be a tad redundant. That's my guess, at least. :)

Can I get the stitch abbreviation of the stitches in this pattern, for example what does (sk 1 hdc 1) mean?

thanks
