Crochet Baby Bear Hat & Crocs Sandals Pattern


Crochet Baby Bear Hat and Crocs Sandals





 Crochet Baby Crocs Pattern I just finished crocheting this newborn hat and crocs for my nephew who is due May 1st.  I absolutely love making projects with baby yarn.  It is so soft and comfy!  I created the pattern for the newborn bear hat and the pattern for the crocs came from Christal's Crochet.

(From Christal's Crochet)
Size 0- 3 months  / 3.5 inch sole
Bigger size changes in brackets for
4, 4.5 & 5 inch soles.

Materials- G hook, small amount WW yarn, yarn needle, 2 or 4
     buttons for trim.

Stitches used-
     sl st - slip stitch, sts - stitches, ch - chain, sc - single crochet,
     hdc - half-double crochet, dc - double crochet,
     sc dec - single crochet decrease, dc dec - double
     crochet decrease


Sole
Rnd 1) Ch 10 [11,12,13], 2 sc in the 2nd ch from hook, sc in the next 2 chs, hdc in the next 3 chs,  dc in the next 2 [3,4,5] chs, 6 dc in the last ch, then working on the opposite side of starting ch, dc in the next 2 [3,4,5] chs, hdc in the next 3 chs, sc in the next 2 chs,  sc in the same ch as the 1st 2 sc of this round. Join with sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1. (23,25,27,29 sts)
Rnd 2) 2 sc in the 1st st, sc in the next 8 [9,10,11] sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts,  sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc in the next 8 [9,10,11] sts. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Ch 1. (28,30,32,34 sts)

Sides
Rnd 4) Work in back loops only for this round!
Sc in 16 sts, hdc in the next 4 [6,8,10] sts, , sc in the last 14 sts. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc. Ch 1. (34,36,38,40 sts)
Rnd 5) Sc in the 1st 9 [10,11,12] sts, (ch 2, skip the next 2 sts, sc in the next 2 sts) 5 times, sc in the last 5 [6,7,8] sts. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc. (34,36,38,40 sts)   Fasten off!

 Fasten off just means to cut the yarn and tie off leaving about a two inch tail.  Then, weave in the ends the same way you would finish any crochet project.

 This is how the sandal should look after round 5.

 After cutting the yarn and tying a small knot.

                                           Round 6 says to join with a single crochet tot he 8th st to the left of joining.  I personally just joined the yarn using a slip stitch and then chained 1 and continued with the instructions as written.

Joining yarn at the 8th stitch to the left of joining


Rnd 6) Join with a sc in the 8th [8th,8th,9th] st to the left of joining. Sc in the next 1 [2,3,3] st, 2 sc in the ch space, (sc dec over the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next ch space) 4 times, sc in the next 2 [3,4,4] sts, loosely ch 14 [16,18,18] and sl st to the 1st sc to join. Ch 1. (18,20,22,22 sc, 14,16,18,18 chs)

 This is how the sandal should look after you complete round 6.
Rnd 7) Sc in the1st 2 [3,4,4] sts, dc dec 7 times, sc in the next 2 [3,4,4]sts, in one loop only sc in each ch around. Join with sl st to 1st sc. Ch 1. (25,29,33,33 sts)
Rnd 8) Sc in 1 [2,1,1] st, sc dec 2 [2,3,3] times, sc in the next st, sc dec 2 [2,3,3] times, sc in the next 1 [2,1,1 st, loosly sl st in the next 14 [16,18,18] sts,. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc. Fasten off! (7,9,9,9sc, 14,16,18,18 slst)
Thicker sole recommended for bigger sizes!
For thicker sole repeat rnds 1-3 and holding this piece against bottom of shoe, matching up stitches, slip st through both loops of this piece and leftover loops around bottom of shoe.
Weave in ends and sew on buttons as shown in pictures.
Enjoy!

    1. Hi Judy,

      I added some photos and my personal notes (in green)to the crocs pattern above. Hopefully this will help! Let me know if this still doesn't make sense.

  2. Hi Judy,

    I will look at the pattern and try to take some pics and post them. Unfortunately, I can't take any video because I have Windows Vista on my laptop and my camcorder isn't compatible with Vista.

  5. Hey there!!

    I'm wondering how I could edit this pattern to bring it up a size to the 3-6 months? I have a little cousin who's growing just so fast! And everything we've gotten for the sweetie is little blue bears, and this would be perfect to add to the collection!

    Thanks!

  7. Hi great patterns! Made the hat and it looks great but I'm stuck on the sandal pattern. In Rnd 6 where it says "2 sc in the ch space", what does that mean? Do I sc in the two floating chain stitches? Or do I sc in the two stitches underneath the floating chain stitches? Or something else entirely that I just don't understand?! Thanks!!!

  11. Made the newborn, but now she is 6 months old and wears 12 month sizing. I'd love to do another that fits her now. Not sure how to enlargen. Returned here to see if instructions were included. Perhaps it is simple as increasing with each round or something. Hey, nothing beats a try but a failure as they say.

    Thank you for sharing this tres cute pattern.

    Cheers,

  17. I just finished my first pair of baby crocs and will be making more to go to Pine River Reservation. The pattern is wonderfully easy. Love the way the extra sole is worked on after shoe is finished, so much easier. I tried to thank Christal for pattern but Tripod won't accept verification code. So thanks to you; I'll give credit when I post on FB.

    1. I'm wondering if you could help me with this pattern as can't get an answer but saw you had made these crocs. On round 5 where you are chaining 2 , skipping 2 stitches then sc in 2 stitches which I understand these spaces aren't evenly spaced at the front of the crocs. I don't understand why not as they create spaces at the front of the croc & on one side these spaces go further up only on one side. What am I'm doing wring if anything ? Thank you if you see this post.

  21. I'm wondering when making the crocs,
    on round 5 where you are making the chain 2 spaces x 5 are they not suppose to be even on both sides of the croc ?
    The way tell pattern is written these spaces aren't evenly spaced around the shoe. I would like to finish these as are so cute. Thank you.
