I created this simple pattern for booties and have probably made a couple hundred sets. For years I would give a multi color six pack to any one I knew was expecting. I mean anyone wither they had a shower or not, even if I didn’t know them well. My fondest memories with these booties was when my kids were in grade school and their school had a mitten or sock or hat tree for underprivileged kids I would fill my pockets with them and and when no one was looking I would hang them all over the tree. They are inexpensive to make, look cute on and just make people happy. I have used what I have and have what I use. The cost of these booties are about $0.50-$0.75 per pair. They take about an hour per pair to make. I crochet fast so I can make a pair in about forty five minutes.
