Super Cute Crochet for Little Feet: 30 Stylish Shoes, Booties and Sandals to Crochet for Babies by Vita Apala, published by St. Martin’s Griffin, contains 30 of the most adorable baby shoes and booties that are fun to crochet and perfect for little feet!
The book is broken down into three categories:
- Super Cute Shoes
- Super Cute Boots
- Super Cute Sandals
Super Cute Crochet for Little Feet begins with an introduction from the author where she talks about her love for the fiber arts and talks about how the book and patterns are laid out. She explains the different elements of a pattern such as what the Skill Level means, where to find the gauge, and more.
We then move on to an array of baby shoe, boot, and sandal patterns that range in skill level, so there is a pattern for everyone! Each pattern is very detailed and includes the Skill Level, Sizes, Yarn information, Hooks and Notions used, Gauge, and Stitches & Skills used in the pattern. There are also photos that show different parts of the pattern so that you can compare your work with how the pattern is supposed to look at different steps.
At the end of the book, there is a wonderful section that go through the basics of crochet, so it’s great for a beginner. The author even includes what you should have in a basic crochet kit! There is also a full list of abbreviations used in the book and some great crochet techniques, which include how to make a slipknot, chaining, working in the round and more. I also like that there is a section for special stitches to help you master trickier stitches such as post stitches and the crab stitch.
If you want to to make some gorgeous baby shoes for your little one, then you have to get this book! I hope you will purchase this great books and make a lot of fun new projects from these gorgeous blocks!
