Cupids Sweet Hearts Crochet Booties
Recently I published the cloud 9 crochet slippers and have been working on a few ways to finish them as booties. I wrote up this pattern and tested out one of the sizes. There is no way that I will find enough testers to be able to post this pattern any time soon so here it is.
Please note that because this pattern is not tested there could be mistakes, if you happen to find any PLEASE comment below to let me know so that I may update the pattern. If you work up a pair of your own Cupids Sweet Hearts Crochet Booties please 'Hook Up' your project on Ravelry. Make sure to add it to your Ravelry Favourites and/or queue.
The soles of these slippers are made using Phentex Craft and Slipper yarn. While this is a great yarn for soles due to its strength, colourfastness and its resistance to staining, mildew, abrasion, and sunlight. While it is great for soles it can be a little slippery, I picked up some puff t-shirt paints to add to the soles and recently came across this super neat idea by KT and the Squid. She uses Plasti Dip Spray to make the entire sole non slip! Check out the tutorial HERE.
The inside soles are made using Bernat Pipsqueak, this yarn is so soft it's like walking on a cloud!
Just in time for Valentines around the corner, here's the first pair of Cloud 9 Booties..

- I carried up the yarn between colour changes so I didn't have to cut the yarn and weave in a bunch of ends. Just make sure when caring up the yarn that you don't pull it too tight making the work pucker.
