Book Review - Baby Shoes to Crochet

Monday, January 16, 2017

I was provided with a copy of Baby Shoes to Crochet for an honest review. All opinions are those of Jessie Rayot of Jessie At Home. This review contains affiliate links.

Baby Shoes to Crochet: Fashionable Styles for Little Feet by Lucia Forthmann is full of adorable baby shoes for everyday and special occasions!


No matter your style or the occasion, you will find something for you in this book. The patterns are all in 3 sizes, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-9 months.


The book starts with some sweet acknowledgements and an introduction. Right away, there are precious little line drawings that appear all over the book, making it that much cuter! Next is a very comprehensive section on crochet basics with written and photo instructions on everything from a chain, to basic stitches, increases, decreases, some of the special stitches in the book, and more!


Next is a list of abbreviations so you can properly use the book, and instructions for soles. I LOVE that most of the patterns in the book use the same sole pattern. They're shoes, why not use the same sole pattern? It just makes using the book so much easier! There are even stitch diagrams for the sole.


Next, of course, are the patterns for the shoes. Many of them are pictured with the adult versions of the shoe that inspired them. You will find everything from flats to sneakers, cowboy boots to work boots, ballet slippers to hippy boots, and more!


The patterns are simple enough for a strong beginner, but interesting enough to keep an advanced crocheter going. The instructions appear clear and easy to read. There are photos with each shoe, so you know what you are trying to accomplish. Over all, this is a great  book for someone looking to crochet some baby shoes. 


Baby Shoes to Crochet can be purchased from Search Press (HERE) or from Amazon (HERE). This book will make a great addition to your crochet library!
