How to Crochet Crocodile Stitch Booties

Crochet Crocodile Stitch Booties

I made this for my daughter who is 7 1/2 years old. Her foot is about 13 1/2 shoe size to almost a Size 1, and 7 inches long. This slipper should fit a child from the ages of 5- 8 years old. Just when you get to the length of the slipper, measure your child's foot. My daughters foot measured 7 inches, so I made the slipper about 7.5 to 8 inches long to fit and before I slip stitched it closed, I put it on her foot to check if it fit.

sl st=slip stitch
sc=single crochet
hdc=half double crochet

Crocodile Booties Video Part I

Part II

K hook
Blue yarn or any yarn you prefer
yarn needle

Start: K hook

Toe: Chain 2, work 10 hdc in the 2nd chain from the hook. sl st -10 hdc
Rnd 2: *Work 2 hdc in the next stitch, hdc in the next, *Repeat around, sl st
Rnd 3- cont.: Hdc in each hdc around, (work in continual rounds without a slip stitch, use a marker)*Repeat this round until the toe Reaches 3.5 inches long, about 1/2 inch away from the ankle, that was about 9 rounds
Down below are more instructions

 Next Rounds: This is the opening of the Slipper where the foot goes in: Now Chain 1, and Turn, *hdc in each hdc around until you reach the marker from the last round, Chain 1 and Turn, *Repeat this until your slipper reaches 7.5-8 inches long, (7 more rounds) But at the last round, work a hdc in the next 5 hdc, slip stitch in the next 5 hdc, hdc in the rest of the hdc, (this will round off the end)
Once your slipper reaches the length to fit your child, then take the ends of the last round, and slip stitch across to close it for the heel. Then at the end, I turn it inside out, so the heel seem won't show. Now fasten off and weave in the ends.

 Use a J hook for the Crocodile Stitch part.
 Now For the Crocodile Stitch Part:
With your yarn Attach the yarn in the middle of the top part of heel.
Single crochet around the opening of the bootie once. sl st. -20 sc (make that sc an odd number, your number may vary for each child)  Make you end with 20 sc around.
v-stitch= (hdc, ch 1, hdc)
Rnd 1: Ch 3, hdc in same stitch,* skip a sc, v-st in next ch, rep from * around, join with sl st on top of first hdc. – 10 v-stitches
Rnd 2: Ch 2 (counts as a hdc), working from top to bottom around post of first hdc of first V-st, work 3 fphdc, turn work so v-st is sideways, ch 1, working from bottom to top around post of second hdc of v-st, work 4 fphdc , * skip next v st, working from top to bottom work 4 fphdc around post of first hdc of next v st, ch 1, turn work so v-st is sideways, working from bottom to top around post of second hdc of v st, work 4 fphdc, rep from * around; join with sl st in top of first hdc. -5 crocodile stitches in total.
