Crochet Booties 3 - Pitter Patter

 This 3rd set of booties I combined the patterns for the last 2 pairs of booties I made, so the pattern might be a little confusing as I jotted notes as I went along, adjustments made in red.
I used a smaller hook to make sure they were smaller than the first pair I made with this yarn, intending for them to be for a new born, but the size looked closer to a 1 year old!
 I loved how the fur trim turned out. I couldn't find a recommended fur yarn so I used a yarn called Pipsqueek yarn. I can't imagine trying to crochet more than one row though, as the stitches are near impossible to find after the first row. But it worked out well because I only needed one row of double crochet to give it a good trim size.




Total time = 2 hours 10 minutes
