Bernat Baby Coordinates Crochet Booties

There is nothing in the world more precious than a newborn baby. So, why not keep the newest bundle of joy in your life warm and cozy with these super soft crochet booties? The Bernat Baby Coordinates feature a lovely shimmer, which is sure to grab the attention of visitors, nurses, and all the other babies at the hospital. These booties -- which are machine washable by the way -- also make for the perfect, last-minute baby shower gift.

Use a gauge of 16 sc and 18 rows (4") to crochet booties that fit most 6 to 9 month olds or most 12 to 18 month olds. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
