Time to start going shopping for some new rain boots! And I’m mainly talking to myself haha But seriously we can start preparing for some rain 🙂 Last year I made little rain booties and I’m excited to say I added two extra sizes to my Pattern so now it includes 0-3, 3-6 and 6-12 month old babies 🙂 You can grab the pattern here on Etsy or here on Craftsy.
With the Rain Booties I got silly and created the Puddle just for fun and would like to share it with you for free 🙂
What will you need:
Crochet Hook: H/5mm
Any medium weight yarn.
|hdc||half double crochet|
|dtr||double triple crochet|
|rep from *||repeat instructions from *|
The Puddle is worked in a continuous round, do not join or turn. I recommend placing a stitch marker on the first st of the second round, or stringing a different color of yarn, and move it up as the work progresses so you can remember when you finished working a round.
