I am so excited about this Crochet Along as this one was voted on by my fellow crocheters in my Facebook Group. So, as per request, I created Adult Christmas Booties.
But instead of just creating one version, I decided to make 2 version of this pattern: Santa and Elf Booties. The pattern itself is the same one, but with some color changes you can make either Santa or Elf Booties.
This Crochet Along is sponsored by Premier Yarns who were also so kind enough to provide us a discount code (NR001) of 10% off for you to purchase the same yarn that I used which is Premier Home Cotton Grande. So, be sure to use the discount code: NR001
This yarn is so soft and super easy to work with. It is not too thick and neither too thin to be used as booties. The yarn is not 100% cotton so the booties will not be too draggy.
Take a look at this intro video where I show how the booties look like in action 🙂

Please go to Premier’s Facebook Page and say THANK YOU for sponsoring “Nicki’s Homemade Crafts” and the Nicknacks (nickname for the crocheters who follow me).
There are many different colors and even versions of this yarn (even with sparkles) that you can choose from. The discount applies to all Premier Home Cotton Grande yarns.
The Crochet Along will be in 3 parts where one part will be released per week starting September 30th, as well as the 2 Saturday’s after.
The pattern is designed such that you can easily adjust the pattern to make it fit your leg and feet. I will mention in each part of the pattern where adjustments can be made so they will fit your individual feet simply by trying and measuring certain parts of your feet and leg.
Below you will find the schedule and which part we will be working on per week. It also mentions the color used for either the Santa or the Elf Booties in the material list. You can make both versions simultaneously or just one version of the pattern.
