Love this pattern. Do you have available for knitting?
Thanks for creating such an amazing pattern for the world! I bought this pattern a couple of weeks ago and now I've finally started on it. Your instructions with illustrations are amazing! I'm at the point where I need to place markers for my first cuff. but my count is off by one stitch. I'm having trouble figuring out where to compensate for my missing stitch. I wish the pattern at this point included the number of stitches between the markers toward the toe and the number of stitches between the markers toward the heel, just as you did for placing markers on the sole to begin the sides. Could you help me out with that stitch count? Thanks! - Cheryl
Never mind. I worked it out I just added a stitch in the front when I did the sc round before the cuff. I figured the decrease area was where the lost stitch was. It turned out fine. I'll post pics when I get the buttons on. Thanks again for such a great pattern!

I cant seem to get the pattern either? could you email it to me as well please?
I am about to start this pattern and am having trouble with the gauge. A size "F" crochet hook is generally recommended for much finer yarn (sports) yarn. Using an F with worsted weight, my swatch is still too big and I can't imagine using an even smaller hook. What's going on?
I used a smaller yarn for my pairs. The label still calls it worsted but it's not thick. I also used a G hook to get the right gauge. My yarn of choice is lion brand martha stewart crafts extra soft wool blend. I needed two balls per pair and you can get it in many colors at joann fabrics.
Hi there, Rhonda! Hook sizes suggested in yarn brands are just a "general suggestion" and not a rule in crochet. The choice of hook size will depend on what type of crochet fabric you are trying to achieve for your project.For instance, in most slippers projects you will see that the hook sizes listed are often much smaller than what is suggested in a yarn label. This is because by using a smaller hook you are trying to achieve a thicker, sturdier fabric, with very little drape, which is ideal for a slipper. You don't want drape in your boots. On the other hand, when you are crocheting a scarf, or a shawl you do want it to drape and be airy, so you often can use a much larger hook. In addition to using drastically smaller or larger hooks to achieve the fabric effect you want, you also have to add gauge to the equation. This means that if you used the hook I used (F) and you feel the swatch still too big, go down to a D size and check again, because your tension is probably looser than mine. Again, you never have to match the exact hook in a pattern or in a yarn label. That is why whenever you see gauge listed in patterns there is the following sentence: "Use any size hook to obtain gauge".Finally, another thing you have to take in consideration is that not all yarns are created equal. Even when 2 yarns are both listed as worsted weight, they can still be considerably different in thickness depending on the fiber they are made with. For instance, yarns that are 100% acrylic tend to be thicker than those containing wool in their composition. Even when they are both 100% acrylic, they can still vary depending on how they are plied. Have you noticed how Red Heart Super Saver is much thicker than Simply Soft? Both are worsted weight yarn and 100% acrylic, yet they produce completely different gauge swatches. I hope this helps.

I would like to know what worsted weight yarn you used for these. I am using red heart and it seems so thick and stiff. 24 rows 18 stitches= 10 x 10 cms. Thanks.
The yarn used in the pattern is listed on the materials section. Leslie Cruz, Pattern SupportBonita Patterns.LLC

I used Lopps and threads Imppecable and the recommended hook size, but my sole turned out medium size and I had to adjust the pattern by omitting a row before the foot increase., that gave me the correct lenght. then I had to squeeze in a couple extra stitches to get the correct numer for my sc around row.
muy bonito ..pero no entiendo esta en igles y no se ingles..mmmmm porfis,,,gracias
I have a question I get to row 4(Rs) and I get stuck. Does anyone have any suggestion?
Hello, Please email email@example.com for assistance.
Does this pattern include baby sizes also? If not, do you sell a baby crocodile stitch bootie pattern? Thank you!
There is an infant, child, adult set also or you could buy each individually. They are both available here and on Ravelry.
Hi there, I am trying to buy this pattern but it just does not allow me to click on Mastercard. I do not use paypal so how do I go about buying the pattern? Hope to hear from you soon as I really love the design.
I just bought the pattern but it's not downloading
Paid pattern, but do not understand how to download it. Help please!
I have made 3 pair of these and found noe errors inthe pattern, however I did have a problem with my gauge. I finally used the small adult size pattern and omitted 2 rows right before the 2nd increase, which then gave me the correct length for the small size. I worked the smal size pattern as is and got a medium size. The baby bootie pattern is right also.I made one pair of them.
What size hook did you use? I am having trouble with my gauge. I wanted to use some bernat worsted I had but the f hook is too bug and already hard to use so um nervous to go too much smaller. Maybe I need new yarn.

I cna't even get started on the sole. Can you explain to me how to get my first 4 stitches to become 12. On other soles i have worked on both sides of the chain. Do I do that here? I have done lots of crochet work but seem to have a mental block here. Thank you
Follow the pattern. It tells you when and where to increase. If you don't know how to increase chech out some videos online. Usually increasing is done with an additional stitich in a specific space.
I reread the pattern and worked it out on paper, now I get it :)
These boots are great. Just putting the finishing touches on mine, then have people lined up who want a pair. Patter is very easy to read with lots of great pictures to help a person along. I already made the baby version and gave them away as a baby gift and will be making these for many others that I know as well. Love all of her patterns and can't wait to purchase more.
