Super Cute Crochet for Little Feet, by Vita Apala, will appeal to every crocheting granny in the land. And especially, those soon-to-be grannies. These booties are just delightful.
Most patterns work from a simple template for the bootie base, for which clear instructions (with accompanying photographs) are provided. The patterns for the upper part of the booties result in a variety of different details and styles. All very creative, the adorable crocheted footwear mimics leather sandals, work boots, and ballet slippers, to name but a few. Some have spurs (the cowboy boots), stripes (the football boots), laces, bows and flowers; and there are 30 individual designs, so something for everyone.
I found the instructions easy to follow and novices could craft many of these patterns. There is a section at the back with simple crochet instructions if you are a beginner – or just need reminding. The accompanying photographs are clear and enhance the patterns greatly. There is something especially delightful about handcrafted clothing and accessories for newborns.
