4 hours Daisy Crochet Booties :)

1525101_256672914515199_1123057846_n It was Thursday 27 March 2014 I received a message from a first time customer, asking me if I can make a pair of booties before 30 March 2014. In the meantime, I still have ongoing work in progress that I need to complete as well. I put a deep thought about this before agreed to her request. Not that it was difficult to make but the time limit was not in my favor. However after a long talk and discussion as she looks very determine, so I decide to step in and take out the challenge.

As how I thought! I felt no regret at all. I managed to complete the booties before 30 March 2014 and never have I felt this much satisfied towards my own crocheted booties before as how I felt right now after seeing these cute little booties. What a great match, what a nice shape and how neat it is! Oh yes, I am very proud to see my own progress. Alhamdulillah. As wise man said, practice makes perfect <3

So, a little advice to my crocheter/knitter friends, never ever give up and have confident!

Mission accomplished!

Unit weight: 100 grams (3.53 ounces)

Gauge: 19.0 sts = 4 inches for 4.00mm size of crochet hook. I am using 3.00mm size of crochet hook for this pattern.

Hook size: 3.00 mm

Scissor to cut yarn

Note:

1) Every first of Chain 3 is counted as dc stitch.

2) Slip stitch on every first of chain 3.

TIPS: This size is made for 3.50 inci length of sole (0-3 months old). If you need to make a smaller size or a bigger size than this, make a chain until your desired length, and start crocheting in the same manner as the instruction below since most of the increase part is done between each corner of sole. However, for smaller size, you may skip 1 or 2 dc2tog for shaping.

a) Chain 23, continue with making 1 dc in 4th-ch from hook
