Like the pattern. Difficult at first then I finally got the hang of it. Disappointed that there are not directions for making a child's size 2, which is about 8.25 inches long. Would like to know how I can adjust this pattern to make the child's size larger.

Jean - We are so glad you liked this pattern. Unfortunately we are unable to provide the pattern in that size at this time. We do carry several other patterns that use the crocodile stitch, if you liked the stitch. Just search for "crocodile" on the Annie's site.

I love the looks of these slippers ... they are cute! When I got to the scales, I found it very difficult to do them with a hdc so I started working dc instead, and fpdc instead of fphdc. I was then able to finish them and they turned out the way they are supposed to look. I don't think the pattern is correct when it says to work the scales in hdc and fphdc. I think it is supposed to be dc and fpdc. Please let me know if I am wrong. I also put a ch1 at the bottom and the top of the scale.

I made first pair over the weekend. The tutorial video on YouTube was very helpful. I found when making the scale row you put a chain 1 between them. That worked so much easier and faster. Also if using worsted weight yarn the size is a bit bigger than the scale on the pattern. It also depends on how loose you crochet. I am working on the infant size with baby yarn coming so nice Good Luck to all

It took me 15 times before I finally got the scales right. I'm so glad I kept at it, they are adorable. Now if I remember how to do it for the left foot I'll be all set.

I just got this pattern. I would like to know what kind of yarn did you use for baby booties and for the other booties?

I am not a crocheter, but I was able to make a pair of infant size booties. It was interesting at first, but once I got the hang of it, making the crocodile tears was fun. It took reading the pattern very closely, and doing what it says.

Very easy and fun if you watch the video, once you get it ... it's an outstanding pattern and easy to follow ;)

I also purchased this pattern and love but can't figure out the pedal section. I could really use help. Can't finish them! Any video out there or someone that can help?

I love these booties. However, I have found that they are harder to make than what I thought. Does anyone have any hints or secrets? I am determined to make these.
