Can beginners crochet baby booties?
Absolutely, Yes! If you are just learning how to crochet, small projects such as baby shoes or booties are a perfect way to practice stitches and new techniques.
Not only that, but when you successfully complete a project, it gives you a boost of confidence to tackle a more advanced pattern.
Another reason crochet baby booties are a good pattern for beginners is that you have to make two of them. That also helps you to remember how to work the stitches.
You can also very easily add a matching little baby hat, headband or blanket to make a complete set. Since all of these items are so small, they work up much quicker than full size crochet projects.

What is the best yarn for baby booties?
There are a few things to consider when you are crocheting or knitting for babies mainly Softness, Washability and Durability.
Baby skin is very delicate and sensitive so you will want to use a super soft yarn.
Wool can be scratchy unless you use a high quality Merino. The downside to merino, however, is the high cost and lack of machine washability so you will want to choose a Superwash Merino.
Cotton and other plant fibers are tricky because they tend to not be very elastic and therefore won’t stretch with movement. Plus, cotton can lose its shape after washing.
