How To Crochet Cowboy Baby Boots - Yarn Scrap Friday

I have actually been asked quite a few times already for this written pattern, even to purchase it but no-one pays for my Yarn Scrap Friday patterns as my reward is the love of sharing my creations! (^-^)

So as some of you have noticed I've been trying to get on top of my written patterns for my Yarn Scrap crochet video tutorials over the last few days so I can get this written pattern to you guys sooner rather than later. So at last I share the written crochet pattern for my Little Cowboy/Girl Baby Boots.

You can watch the video tutorial here:



All you need is;

- Chunky/Bulky weight yarn (yarn weight 5)
- 5.5mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle and scissors

Please note* I cannot give advice, without much work involved, for different sizes or what to do if you use a different hook or yarn weight, thank you.

For ages 0-6 months to fit up to 10cm

How To Crochet a Star

I love these stars. I originally designed these for the 4th July for my American friends but they are also so perfect for Christmas or as sheriff badges. The finishing round also really brings this design together. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have enjoyed designing it.

You can watch the video tutorial here:



All you need is;

- Dk/Light worsted weight yarn in red, white and blue or any colour or yarn type you like
- 3.5mm crochet hook or any hook suitable for your yarn
- Yarn needle and scissors

Note* when joining a new colour, join the new colour in the sl st that joins the round, i.e instead of yarning over with the same colour to finish the sl st, yarn over with the new colour.

Round 1
Ch4, sl st in 1st ch to form a loop, crochet 5sc into loop, sl st in 1st sc to join - (5)

Round 2
Ch1, 1sc in same st as previous sl st, 2sc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in ch1 to join - (10)

Round 3
Ch1, 1sc in same st as previous sl st, 2sc in next st and in ea st around, sl st in ch1 to join - (20)

Round 4
Ch1, 2sc in next st, *1sc in next st, 2sc in next st* repeat from * to * until end, sl st in ch1 to join - (30)

Round 5
*ch6, sl st in 2nd st from hook, 1sc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1dc in next st, 1tr in next st, sk5 sts on main part of star, 1sc in next st* repeat from * to * until end finishing with a sl st in 1st ch of 6 instead of the 1sc, join your last colour in this last sl st.

Round 6
Crochet 1sc neatly around edge of star, fasten off and either use remaining yarn to form a loop to hang your star or just tie in all your tails as normal.
