I love making items for babies. People love receiving the items I make. win-win situation
I came across this pattern several years ago and then forgot about it. It grabbed my attention again.
Intermediate level. Crocheted Soccasins by Megan Mills. http://megan.cc/Soccasins/
It's written with UK terms. All the dc's are US single crochet. Calls for wool yarn though I'm not sure what weight.(double knitting) I plan on playing and figuring that out.

Also, made with wool, guessing a fingering weight. She has the pattern available with US terminolgy.
The PRR babies will have warmer tootsies and the parents will hopefully like my gifts.
Please add your fave baby and kids crochet patterns.
I've been practicing the Soccasin pattern.
I made it to the slipper stage and stopped. Leftover alpaca worsted weight? with a E hook. Enough to make a pair of slipper styles. It'll be a older baby/toddler size. I like the pattern. It would be fairly easy to size it up for adults.
I saw that, too. I agree, too nice for drool n food.
You could re-fashion that into a summer-bibbed sundress.
