Ugg Boot Style Booties

Finished Booties

Okay.. So this is a fun, and cute pattern that I came up with after sitting there staring at my own ugg boots and thinking that a miniature pair would look adorable.
They are a little difficult to make but it is mainly in the finishing touches that it gets difficult. The booties themselves are easy and are made up just like any other worked flat pattern.

Pink 4ply yarn
White 4ply yarn
4mm Crochet Hook

Starting with Pink
Chain 31
Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in each ch across, ch1, turn
Row 2: hdc in each hdc across, ch1, turn
Row 3: hdc in each hdc across, ch2, turn
Row 4: dc in each hdc across, ch2, turn
Row 5: dc in each dc across, ch1 turn
Row 6: hdc on each dc across, turn
Row 7: Slip st in the next 8sts, ch2, dc in same st, dc in next 14 dc's, ch2, turn
Row 8 - 10: dc in each dc across, ch2 (do not chain 2 at end on row 10)
     Join white, ch1 
Row 11:  hdc in each dc across, ch2, turn
Row 12: dc in each hdc across, ch2, turn
Row 13:  dc in each dc across, ch1, turn
Row 14: hdc in each dc across, ch1, turn
Row 15: sc in each hdc, fasten off.

Before Sewing Up
With wrong side facing!
Using whip stitch, sew up front seam and along the top and toe of bootie, then turn right way out.

Using whip stitch sew up sole of bootie.
Weave in ends

Side/Front Detail
Using the next picture as a guide, you will now add the detail too the booties to make them look like Ugg Boots. As I mentioned at the start of the blog, this step is the most difficult of the whole process but without these touches, the booties would not look like the Ugg Boots that they are meant to.

With white, sc along 2nd row to make the bottom edge of the trim, join with a slip stitch and fasten off.
Flatten bootie, measure 2cm from heal and join with slip st to edging just made, sc up side of bootie as shown above, fasten off when reaching the white cuff and repeat on other side.
measure up 1cm from edging, on line of sc just made and join white yarn, sc around front of bootie, joining on the opposite side, 1cm up from the edging.

Note:  Row 8 can be repeated until desired hight is achieved. 
Same design, made in blue.
