Baby Bubble Booties - Cute and cozy way to keep your little one’s feet warm this winter! {Free Crochet Pattern by Whistle and Ivy}

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe and fun celebration! We have been trying to stay warm in our “new” vintage home. It’s a bit drafty and while we work on getting it sealed up, we are having to bundle up a bit more than usual. Of course, the first step to feeling warm is having warm feet! We all bought new slippers and Sis needed some as well (those darn baby socks refuse to stay on her feet). Time for a new crochet pattern ;) I was so pleased with how these baby bubble booties turned out! They are super cute on baby feet, and the ties make sure they stay put.

I also made a pair with a chain instead of a single length of yarn for the ties. They both work great! Just choose the look you like best. Make sure to tie a small knot at the end of your tails so it doesn’t fray and get matted.

  1. Hello!!!

    I don’t know what am I doing wrong I never end up with the same stiches, what should I follow the video or the written pattern.😯 I’ ve tried the written like 10 times and it doesnt look right.

  2. WOW! I finally finished it! Yeah the nuer of stiches were not the same….its is on perfectionnement but love it! I did the New born site wich was à mistake as they did not for long enough!!non i would love to do for my 2 years old! Is there any way to do so?! Il still not a pro!

    Thank you

    1. Yes, I wrote this right after I had my baby and I have recently found some mistakes ( I guess I was more exhausted than I thought I was). I almost have them all fixed and will be updating it soon.

      1. Haha! Tired or doing something at the same time! Cant wait for have the update! Ok thank you! Will it be available for toddler too?! Or how dan i do for make it?!
        Thank! Wish I could do for me too!

        1. I don’t have a toddler, but I will put it on my to-do list :) These would be very cute for an adult, too! You can try to adapt of my toddler patterns, the first 4 steps is the sole.

          1. Ok thank you so much! Ill keep an eye to see you update!!! I am still beginner at crochet but i will try to make from tout advice since I love them so much! I would have another question…i made the little shoes with acrylic fabric but i find them little “thight” not strecht at all…i was thinking it was because I do too tight but is the fabric has to do something too!?! Thank you so much! Ill continue to follow you!!!

          2. I don’t think it’s your yarn, I think your stitches are tight. Don’t pull them tight after working them, and just keep practicing! It takes time to get a consistent gauge.

  3. I have been train to doo these…the written pattern does not say the same then your tutorial….so does not work for me…

      1. Your written has a different sole pattern then the one you say to use in your tutorial. For 3-6 mths you also say 44 stitches in video but write 41 in the pattern.

          1. 5.
            Join color B in the middle of the heel, 4th st from the join.
            Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc 41. Join with sl st. From here, you will work in joined

          2. That is not part of the sole. The sole is first 3 steps. That is the 2nd round of the body. Sc in same st (1 st) sc 41 (41 sts) 41+1=42

          3. Don’t get me wrong .. I love and appreciate your patterns. It did take me two or three times to get this pattern down. I had to cut out step four, going by your video you don’t use step four. I made the sole according to your video and went straight to step five but used 41 like the written pattern says instead of the 44 on your video. I was simply saying I understand what the other comment was saying.

            thanks for all your hard work in creating these lovely patterns for us to use.

  4. I must be doing something wrong. When I finish the 7 DC2tog BLO it doesn’t look even. By the time I get to row 10 one side is taller than the other. Is this normal? Also, when I join the 2nd color that goes into the 4th St from the sl st from row 4? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Cortney
      It sounds like you may not be joining in the right place. You want to join in the middle of the heel, which should be 4 sts from your join. Is that where you joined?

  5. I have download this pattern along with some others, not sure on what I need to do. Your watermark will not let me see the entire pattern. I would like to try this pattern out please.

    1. If you are using a reader/device, open the pattern in Adobe Reader instead of the default reader app. The watermark is light gray.

  6. Guess what one of my goals for 2015 is? Learning to follow patterns in crochet and knit! Thank you so much for helping along in my endeavor. I love that your patterns are so easy to follow, as well as free…what a plus! Thank you so much.

  7. Thanks so much for all your wonderful patterns. I’m a beginner and find them so easy to follow. Are you planning on doing a video tutorial for these boots? I think I’m ending up with the wrong number of stitches for 10-14. If not, could you give and indication as to the number of stitches we should have when we complete each round?

    1. You are welcome! You know, I have never used stitch counts with any pattern I have used, so I never saw a need when I wrote mine, which I am understanding is not true with most crocheters! Unfortunately, I don’t have a count without working up a pair and counting. Since I don’t have a stitch count, what makes you think you are off?

      1. Thanks for replying! I’m not getting much of a bubble at the back, I think I’m doing something wrong when joining each round. Are we to stitch into the very last stitch of the previous round and then slip stitch into the first stitch (not the chain), ch1 and start again?

        1. Yes, these are joined rows, not working in the round. When you start the second color, you will join each time you come around. Did you work a few rows? It doesn’t turn into a bubble until you increase it out, and then decrease it back in, it takes about 4 rows.

          1. Yes, I have finished a pair and I’m joining at the end of each round but I think maybe I’m joining a stitch early, I usually count how many stitches I’ve done so I know when to join. The joins in my finished pair seem to be on an angle from the start of the increases which leads me to believe I’m missing the last stitch before I join.

          2. Hm. Mine are always at a slight angle. If you look at your stitches, you notice that the loop on top of each stitch is not in the exact middle, so I thought the angle was normal. But this is making your bubbles not work out?

  8. you are doing a great job and i thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so nice and sharing nice ideas and patterns with us :)
    thumbs up from TUNISIA :)

  9. I’ve used many of your patterns and really love the results. They are so ‘doable’.
    Can’t wait to try the bubble boots. They have that ‘ugg’ look without the difficulty.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  10. Fantástico o seu trabalho. Quero começar a fazer estes modelos em breve.
    Amei poder estar aqui.

  11. Love these can’t wait to make them! Just need to finish my arm warmers first! :-) Thanks for all the patterns!

      1. U have 9 to 12 months in your written patterns for the souls. Is there a way to get a written pattern or video of the 9 to 12 months please these are so cute and I’m trying to make them my niece

  12. LOVE these!!!! THANK YOU so much for sharing!!!! I found this new yarn – well for me anyway – soft secret by HL and I think this pattern will be PERFECT for it (it’s similar to Caron’s). The bubbles are adorable!

  13. Can you suggest a way to make these bigger? I have a nine month grandson and eleven month granddaughter. Both of them have fat feet! Especially the girl! I made her a pair of elf slippers for Christmas in a medium of the same pattern I used to make slippers for cousins three and five years old, and they wouldn’t go on! Her foot is only 4.5″, as is Fosters, but fat!

    1. You can work in hdc instead of sc, or use a larger hook and bulkier yarn. Caron Simple Soft is considered medium weight, but I find it’s lighter than Red Heart Medium.

  14. Just looking for some clarification here…to create the “bubbles”… Are the number of stitches meant to increase as you go up the boot? Or should it shrink back to the same number of stitches you get in row 9?

      1. I just realized I was reading the pattern wrong…and that there are two rows of sc2tog. *sigh*
        Making these for a friend who’s giving birth to a baby girl this month. Hope she likes them! Thanks for all the amazing patterns!

  15. I just love your work! Thank you for free patterns, as a South African it is expensive bying patterns, so I always turn back to your site. Awesome work. May you be blessed!

    1. Thank you so much! I am so glad you use my patterns :) Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice comment! Happy New Year!
