Handicrafter Cotton Baby Booties - Crochet Pattern Review - Bernat/Yarnspirations

I have had this pattern bookmarked for quite some time, and finally decided to give it a try (back in September of last year - yikes!) was a little disappointed. I just pulled the little bootie out of my WIPs bin and thought I'd complete this post. The bib stands unfinished at this time, so I will speak on the bootie first, and the bib at a later time.

I am marking this as a Pin-Didn't Pattern. I only worked up one bootie, and have no desire to complete the second. Continue reading to find out more.

Materials Used:
     - Small Amount of Lily Sugar n Cream in the Blueberry colorway
     - H8/5mm Crochet Hook (as recommended)
     - Tapestry Needle for Sewing & Weaving - I used a #18
     - Handicrafter Cotton Bibs and Booties, Free Crochet Pattern

Time Spent: 
     I only worked up one bootie, but it took me about 45 minutes to come. A set would be about an hour and a half.

     4 1/8" Sole Length by 3" Tall with Rolled Cuff

Pattern Notes:
     I found this pattern to be quite difficult to understand and follow, and in assembly. I ended up only working one baby bootie, and had no desire to work a second. My completed bootie does not lay flat as it takes on an awkward slight pull in one direction, though it may fit better once on a little foot.

Despite my difficulties, finished bootie is still super cute :)
