Free Pattern - Crocheted Doll Shoes




Will fit any of my larger long-legged animals like this bunny and cat.


Materials & Tools

- Crochet hook according to the yarn.
- Stuffing - polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc.
- Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.



- st = stitch
- ch = chain stitch
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet stitch
- hdc = half double crochet stitch
- dc = double crochet stitch
- fp-hdc = front post half double crochet stitch (see below)
- sc n = make n single crochet stitches (or ch, hdc etc.), one in each stitch
- inc = increase – make two single crochet stitches in to the same stitch
- inc3 = double increase – three single crochet stitches in to the same stitch
- dc-inc3 = crochet three double crochet stitches in to the same stitch
- dec = invisble decrease – crochet two single crochet stitches together
- sc2tog = regular decrease – crochet two single crochet stitches together
- (sc 2, inc) x n = repeat the pattern between parentheses n times
- (24) = number of stitches in a round after finishing said round



- The soles are worked in spiral. Start joining rounds from row 4.
- Use a stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the end or the beginning of a round. Move the marker up after completing each round.
- All stitches are worked in to both loops unless stated otherwise in the pattern.

Got this pattern quite a while back and could not find it so had to come get it again.
This is a fun pattern and easy to make.
I did something a little different with the shoes. Instead of doing the slip stitches in a different color I kept them the color of the shoes. I made three chain stitches where the bow normally goes. I attached the bows to clip earring backs and they clip on over the chain stitches. I also made little hearts, snowflakes, shamrocks and shimmery flowers in different colors and styles. All the grandchildren and great grandchildren love them.
These shoes also fit a cloth doll that I had made for all the kids. It was a home made pattern from my great grandmother.

hi just having trouble understanding ‘inc’ does it mean 1sc in next then 2sc in next x N of st required.. etc?

Hi Lee,

inc = increase – crochet two single crochet stitches in the same stitch

And when it says inc x 3 for example, you will crochet two sc-s in each of the next three stitches.

All the best,

Hi Anissa,

Sorry, I just won’t have time for that any time soon, too many deadlines to catch.
