This charming little book contains 16 absolutely gorgeous crochet baby shoe designs for boys and girls modelled on grown-up shoe styles, so babies and parents can have matching footwear! At the beginning there is a useful crochet basics section with step-by-step instructions on commonly used crochet stitches, colour changing techniques, joining techniques and basic crochet charts for sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months. There are a variety of designs to choose from, including trainers, ballet shoes, pumps, espadrilles, Mary Janes, cowboy boots and strappy sandals and the patterns have step-by-step instructions. The designs are simple enough for competent beginners, though attractive and interesting enough to inspire more advanced crocheters.
