Galoshes for a rainy day!

20140403-095608.jpg

I meant to get this post written and published a couple of days ago, but it just didn’t happen. Now it seems rather serendipitous because if we were to go outside to day we would definitely need some rain boots! It is pouring rain, and our yard is turning into a soggy, wet mess. But that is ok since we don’t have to go anyplace. Instead, I get to sit here and share my newest crochet pattern with you all!

“My Little Galoshes” is a super cute crochet pattern for baby and toddler sized rain boots! Of course, these are not really meant for splashing about in puddles, but they would make a fun spring accessory for any little one to wear indoors. And if you crochet them in bright colors like I have, they will brighten even the rainiest of days!

This pattern is very quick to work up, taking most of my testers just two hours to complete the pair. I have included several tips and tricks as well as a couple of helpful video links to help you achieve great results. The pattern calls for DK weight yarn, but it would also work for worsted weight if you want slightly larger variations of each size. I think an adventurous beginner who has mastered the basics of sc, dc and hdc stitches would enjoy the challenge offered by the shaping on these boots. So don’t be afraid to jump in and get your feet wet! 😉
