The following Soles Crochet Chart can be used when making crochet baby shoes or booties. I have used this chart with Clover 4/0 (2.5mm) crochet hook and suitable yarn to create soles of about 9-10cm long – which is suitable for babies between 0-6months old.
If you use different sized hook or yarn, then obviously the sizing will vary. This is but one method or pattern for creating the soles for baby shoes/booties.
Step By Step
The following images show row by row for extra clarity. There are only 4 basic rows.
You will note that I have indicated on the charts where one might start the front cover for either a baby bootie or shoe. Examples of baby booties or shoes can be found in my Portfolio for Handmade Baby goodies. Or refer to the 2 examples shown as per below: baby bootie on the left and baby shoe on the right.
Alternative Crochet Chart – DC Baby Soles
I am adding more charts for baby soles here.
This one, I call this the DC Baby Soles Crochet Chart … as all the stitches are made up of dc (double crochet) stitches. Start with 11 foundation chains.
You can see it is an easier crochet soles to make.

This below consists mainly of Half Double Crochet Stitches (HDC).
Alternative Crochet Chart – SC Baby Soles
This gives a firmer soles – using only sc (single crochets).
Other Alternative Crochet Charts – Baby Soles
Below are more. Just the images. I found them from various locations, like Pinterest. However as they are not recent finds and I have downloaded them to my computer quite a while ago, I don’t always know who to attribute my thanks to. (Unless they have their site name in the image itself). If anyone knows the creators of images below, please let me know (preferably with link to source). I will add the correct link and credit asap. Thank you.
