Mini Moule Booties
The Mini Moule Bootie is the perfect baby bootie. With the adorable buttons and flaps, it will be perfect for baby’s first photo shoot. When it no longer fits, why not make it a Christmas Tree decoration to enjoy for years to come? These booties are part of my gender neutral “Mini Moule Collection”. Make sure you check out the other designs in the collection. The Mini Moule Bootie is worked in one piece from the sole up. It is worked in rounds to the top of the foot, and then in rows for the ankle wrap. In this pattern the slip stitch to join does not count as a stitch, so remember not to work into it on the next round. The button is to be sewn onto the 3hdc side of the wrap, using a hole within the puff pattern on the flap as a button hole.
2 Sizes- 0-3 Months & 3-6 Months
*3.5mm hook (U.S. E-4)) crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge
*I used Sirdar Cashmere Merino Silk DK. See chart in the photos above for approximately how much yarn you will need.
*NOTE* This yarn is closer to a sport/4ply yarn. If you are not using the suggested yarn, I would definitely choose a lighter weight yarn than DK to get the correct gauge.
*2 buttons (1cm/0.5in)
