Uggs Inspired Crochet Boots for Lilley Belle
Mummy C loves her Uggs, she always wears them. She asked could I maybe try to make a miniature pair for Lilley Belle. Now that was a challenge!
I started off with the same sole as the Summer Sandals I made for her, but I only used one sole per foot as I knew I was going to try a new stitch – well a new one for me!.
I used DK acrylic wool, as I just know they will need a lot of washing!to the sole
I did the sole in a grey DK acrylic. The last row or round I did a back post double crochet, (BPHDC) all around so it would give a bit of definition to the sole. I’ve never tried this stitch before but I soon got to grips with it and I just know I will be using it in other patterns now. If I’m honest I’ve shied away from using it as I thought it would be difficult, but it was really easy. So not only did I make a pair of boots I learned a new stitch as well.
I actually did almost half a round in back post double crochet (BPDC), but it looked to big a stitch for such a small shoe. So I ripped it back and did the shorter stitch. I used a stitch marker at the beginning of each row so I knew where I started. This came in very handy on this row.
I did a couple of rows in the light brown yarn before I started decreasing stitches. Using half double crochet two together (HDC2tog) and double crochet two together (DC2tog), until I felt I had got to where I felt it was decreased enough.
I then worked on the sides mainly in HDC. I did the first and last three stitches in single loop only so they could over lap.
Once I’d got to the height I wanted I ended with a single row of single crochet. This just tighten up the top of the boot. I added an outside row of fur like pair of real Uggs, but it just looked too much so I took it back off.
I crocheted a chain of 10 to make the button loop. I added the heart button, sewed in all my ends and I was finished.
I worked on both boots at the same time as I was making up the pattern as I went. Sadly I didn’t write it all down, so I’m going to have to make another boot and try to remember what I did!
I hope she loves these Uggs inspired boots as much as I do.
