DIY Tips and Suggestions for Blue Jingles Bootie

For the how-to, I refer you to Crochet Premmie Bootie - How to. You will find all the pictorial step-by-step instructions there for a basic construct.

I would like to say a word or two about the addition of the bells and beads here.

Always remember that threading beads is in reverse order to the sequence in which you will crochet them. For example, when crocheting, if you are going to crochet beads before bells, then you thread the bells first.

Based on the instructions from Crochet Premmie Bootie - How to, I know that for the cuffs of the booties, there will be 22stitches per round.

So before you begin crocheting (with the blue yarn), thread the blue yarn with 22 beads, then 22 bells.

I hope you enjoyed this little trip with me.  This is a really fun bootie to crochet so do please give it a go.  It is also very versatile - you can create them in all kinds of joyful colours.
