Crocodile Stitch Booties I made

I made these baby booties for a friend to give as a gift to their 5 month old granddaughter. 

You can find the pattern online here.

She did a great job in designing this pattern. She even has videos to show
you how to make them. 

There were several things I did change about the pattern. 

On the last two rounds for the foot part I altered it a bit to shape the heel a little
better so you wouldn't have to sew to shape it. 

My adjustments for the last 2 rounds: On the round before the last I did 7 hdc, then 
2 hdc tog twice, then 7 hdc. Last round I did 6 hdc, then 2 hdc tog twice, then 6 hdc. 

Another adjustment I made was I omitted the 20 sc at the top of the foot opening 
and instead I just made the 10 v-stitches all around the opening. 

The last adjustment I made was that I did the crocodile stitch in dc (instead of hdc) and 
I put 5 dc around the post of each v-stitch (instead of 4 hdc).

I thinks these slippers are so cute! She also has instructions on her pattern for other
sizes, newborn to 12 months, 5 to 8 years old, and adult sizes.
