It's finally here...I hope you enjoy this pattern it is fun, quick and easy! I am not the best pattern writer (or  typist or math mathematician..heehee...I think it may be my first published!)  I so often just do these off the of my head! So please any questions do not hesitate to email me for help. Enjoy!!
**UPDATE** I used a size E crochet hook and Rowan Purelife Revive 


Baby Moccasin

Chain 16 plus 2 more (counts as part of the first dc for next row) for a total of 18 chains

Row 1: dc in 4 th chain from the hook (Skipped chains serve as first dc). dc and in each ch space for a total of 16 dc total.
Row 2: Ch 3 4 dc around previous double crochet post (this makes the heel) dc in the next 13 dc from previous row across

.
Now 5 dc around the next dc post (this is the dc post from the previous row, which was the first ch 3 which served as the first dc of row 1.



Dc around in next 13 …stitches slip stitch in first dc. . 36 dc total.

Row 3.  Ch 3 serves as first dc. Dc around slip stitch in top of first dc ..36 dc total

Row 4.   Repeat Row 3 …then ch 3 and the end to set up for next row.

Row 5. Fold booty in half divide stitches place marker …(should be 18 stitches on each side then divided into 9 ) . Go back to Ch 3 and Dc to marker Ch 2. Dc across into the opposite stitch with the marker. Dc around to initial Ch 3 Slip stitch to join.

 
Row 6. Ch 2. Sc into every other stitch (the Ch 2 from previous row serves as stitches here.)All the way to the beginning Ch. 2 slip st to join.

Row 7 (we are closing the top of the foot here.) Ch 2.  Sc in every other stitch around slip stitch to first ch 2 . Fasten off leaving a 4 inch tail. Thread a tapestry or Chibbi needle weave in ends. Pinch the center of to add a little dimension.

 




Row 8. Insert the hook into the space between the instep and first dc of second half of body. Pull up a working loop with the working yarn Ch 1
 
Now 5 Dc in first Dc and then Dc around in each stitch until last Dc and then 5 Dc in last Dc
