How To Crochet Cowboy Baby Boots - Yarn Scrap Friday

I have actually been asked quite a few times already for this written pattern, even to purchase it but no-one pays for my Yarn Scrap Friday patterns as my reward is the love of sharing my creations! (^-^)

So as some of you have noticed I've been trying to get on top of my written patterns for my Yarn Scrap crochet video tutorials over the last few days so I can get this written pattern to you guys sooner rather than later. So at last I share the written crochet pattern for my Little Cowboy/Girl Baby Boots.

You can watch the video tutorial here:



All you need is;

- Chunky/Bulky weight yarn (yarn weight 5)
- 5.5mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle and scissors

Please note* I cannot give advice, without much work involved, for different sizes or what to do if you use a different hook or yarn weight, thank you.

For ages 0-6 months to fit up to 10cm

Boot (make twice)

Row 1
Ch11, 2hdc in 2nd st from hook, 1hdc in next 8 sts, 2hdc in last st - (12)

Row 2
Work back into the same chains again with 2hdc in 1st ch, 1hdc in next 8 chs, 2hdc in last ch - (24 total sts from rows 1 and 2)

Round 3 (you are now working in the round)
1sc in next st, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next 4 sts, 1hdc in next 5 sts, 3hdc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 3hdc in next st, 1hdc in next 5 sts, 1sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in last st - (30)

Round 4
1sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next 10 sts, 1hdc in next st, 3hdc in next st, 1hdc in next 2 sts, 3hdc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1sc in next 10 sts, 2sc in last st - (36) sl st in next 2 sts

Round 5
Ch2 (count as st), in front loops only crochet 1dc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in top of ch2 to join - (36)

Round 6
Ch2, 1dc in next 10 sts, dc2tog twice, tr2tog four times, dc2tog twice, 1dc in next 9 sts, sl st in top of ch2 to join - (28)

Round 7
Ch2, 1dc in next 9 sts, dc2tog twice, tr3tog, dc2tog twice, 1dc in next 7 sts, sl st in top of ch2 to join - (22)

Round 8
Ch2, 1dc in next 9 sts, dc2tog twice, 1dc in next 8 sts, sl st in top of ch2 to join - (20)

Rounds 9 - 10
Ch2, 1dc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in top of ch2 to join - (20)

Round 11
Ch1, TURN, 1sc in next st, [1hdc, 1dc] in next st, 2dc in next 2 sts, [1dc, 1hdc] in next st, 1sc in next st, sl st in next 4 sts, 1sc in next st, [1hdc, 1dc] in next st, 2dc in next 2 sts, [1dc, 1hdc] in next st, 1sc in next st, sl st in next 3 sts, sl st in ch1 to join - (28) Fasten off and tie in all tails.

Star (make twice)

Round 1
Using the same thickness of yarn as your boot, crochet 5sc into a magic circle, pull to tighten, sl st in 1st sc to join - (5)

Alternatively you can ch4, sl st in 1st ch to form a loop, crochet 5sc into loop, sl st in 1st sc to join

Round 2
*Ch2, 1sc in 2nd st from hook, sl st in next st on main circle* repeat from * to * until end and you have 5 points, fasten off and use remaining yarn to sew onto boot.

  1. Thank you for this wonderful, fun and quick baby-booty pattern! I love the little star detail, and the fact that I can add other little stitching or detail to the boot, as well! I love the simple way it comes together and how easy it was to understand the video and the written pattern!

    I do have a few suggestions for the written pattern, as the video pattern and the written pattern don't quite "meet-up" at the same point. In the video pattern you keep rounds 1 & 2 as one round, and then write them seperate in the written pattern, which means that if you want to skip ahead of the video it can be confusing to remember where you are.

    Another point is on round 5, where you state: "1dc in next st and in ea st around" - but in the video you say to dc in the front loops only. The written pattern should reflect this as well.

    Thank you again for your free and easy pattern! I can't wait to make a couple different versions of these booties!

    1. Hi Stephanie, thanks for the feedback, very valid points, I shall make the amendment to round 5 now, well spotted! Sometimes my written notes dont always match up to what I made, it happens, so when I come to write it up I can forget things, must remember to write everything down! Thanks again.

  9. I thoroughly enjoyed following along, making a bootee for my first grandchild! It was easier than I expected but my yarn was a bit too chunky, so I shall make a pair with more suitable yarn! I'm going to check out what yarn you buy, etc. to get great results... Thanks for sharing your expertise - I'm now a proper fan!

  12. I am using a smaller yarn so I have to chain more than 11 (I did 15). How can I go on?

  14. In the boot pattern is this made with baby chunky yarn .I tried regular 4 weight yarn and it was huge, so I was wondering if you used chunky yarn for baby.

  15. What do you mean in round 2 to work back into the same chains

  16. Thanks for the great pattern and video! Love it how you don't crochet at full speed so that I, being a beginner and very slow can still almost crochet along with you!
