F-Hook – 3.75 mm (If you stitch tighter, I would suggest using a G-Hook.)
Yarn– I used Bernat Super Value, Red Heart would be comparable.
Sc – Single Crochet- (insert hook into stitch, draw yarn back through, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook)
Hdc – Half Double Crochet- (Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, draw yarn through, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.)
Ext Sc – Extended Single Crochet- (Insert hook into stitch, draw yarn through, yarn over, pull through first loop on hook, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook.)
Sl St – Slip Stitch- (Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, draw yarn through stitch then through 1st loop on hook.)
Blo – Back Loop Only (Work only in the back loop of your stitch)
PATTERN: Size 0-3 months
Size 0-3 months – Depending on your tension, this shoe should measure approximately 3 ½ “ or 9 cm. As you can see in the pictures below, the 1st measures 10 cm, however, after we work our 1st row of the upper portion of the shoes, in the blo, the sizing is now 9 cm. Your tension will make a difference in the pattern sizing. If you stitch tighter, I would move to a G hook instead of the F.
