My brother is expecting and it’s (we think) a BOY! I was having trouble finding cute patterns for boys. I trolled Ravelry and Pinterest until I discovered these baby moccasins by Mon Petit Violon – Stylish, whimsical, classic! Extremely easy to follow with helpful photos, they were really fun and quick to make. So I made a bunch! Patterns, my completed items, and more about the designer below! OMG Heart!

Mine came out slightly different than the original. I did not add a button to the moccasin, I just left the strap in front plain. I also added a loop in the back of the shoe in case they needed to pin these to pants! I wasn’t convinced these would stay on wiggly baby feet. Loops can be handy for hanging somewhere in baby’s room as a cute accent too.
– I added in a back loop for the Baby Moccasins! I wasn’t convinced they would stay on a wiggly baby. So I added in the loop for optional pinning onto baby clothes! Plus, the loops can be used to hang the shoes as a cute decoration.
– I did not have suitable buttons so I crocheted some. But decided not to use them.
-These are 100% washable and dryable yarn on high heat. A special requirement for all the baby stuff I make!
-This yarn is SPLITTY! It always has been but in this case it was extra annoying because the pattern requires using a much smaller hook than recommended. Gah! Thankfully these all crochet up quick.
