PATTERN INSTRUCTIONS

Notes: For R9 and R10 you will be working your sts from the inside of the bootie to the outside of the bootie (the opposite to how you would normally crochet around the slipper).

If you want the leaves to be identical on each bootie you need join your yarn in the same st in R9 for each bootie. I recommend you use the stitch marker placed in R8 and choose the st immediately to the right of it as the first st of R9 if you want identical leaves on the booties.

9: With green, join yarn in any st with a sc. See Photo D & E 1 sc in each st around; skipping the ch 3.

10: See Photos F-J. 1 sc in the 1st st, (ch 3, skip 2 ch, 1 sc in the next ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc; ch 4, skip 2 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc) repeat 5 times. Ch 3; skip 2 ch, 1 sc in the next ch, 1 sc in the next sc. Finish off and invisible join.

Strawberry Flower (make 1)

1: With yellow, 5 sc in a magic ring, finish off and invisible join.

Note: the hdc3tog worked for the petals below is done all in one stitch as a cluster; not as a decrease st

2: With white, join yarn with a sl st in any st, (ch 1, hdc3tog, ch 1, sl st to the same sc) 5 times. Sl st to the 1st sc. Finish off and invisible join.
