Editor’s Inspiration: baby converse crochet pattern by Inventorium
Spring seems to be the season for baby showers. Come prepared with this adorable baby converse crochet pattern.
I have two modes during the year: Doc Martens and Converse. Oh, sure, I dabbled with other shoes in my youth. I once went a whole summer wearing only Birkenstock sandals, and for awhile I was really into flip flops. I wear Doc Martens until the days are long and the afternoons too hot to be wearing boots, and I sadly put away my boots and knee high thermal socks for another season. Yes, you might say that I prefer colder weather, and you’d be right.
But there’s hope: my Converse shoes. Comfortable, versatile, and available in an array of colors and prints, it’s my go to shoe in warmer weather. Add some novelty laces, and you get the full effect. I wear them so often that I tend to go through a pair every summer without fail.
This crochet pattern by Inventorium has two sizes to fit babies from 3 – 12 months, and uses US crochet terms. If you aren’t familiar with US crochet terms, never fear: click here for a handy conversion chart.
These tiny shoes are a great stashbuster project, as they use less than 100 grams of each color; this also means that it’s a good go-to pattern when you totally forgot about that baby shower that’s tomorrow and the shops are all closed.
If you’re looking for some worsted weight yarn to keep on hand for these shoes, I love Stylecraft Special Aran. It’s soft and machine washable, which is absolutely necessary when crafting for babies. Shown in Denim (1302) and Parchment (1218), I love the idea of making them in Pomegranate (1083) and Graphite (1063) for an extra funky vibe.
Will you be using this baby converse crochet pattern to prepare for baby showers this year?
