Lady Bug Booties Pattern:
I used a J 6.00 mm hook and a G 4.25 mm (for the eyes)
Rnd 1: with black ch2, sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook, join
Rnd 2: ch1, sc2 in each stitch around, join
Rnd 3-6: ch1, sc in each stitch around, join
Rnd 7: Change color to red, ch 1, sc in each stitch around... DO NOT JOIN! (this is very important... this starts the opening for the booties)... do not join, instead turn.
Rnd 8: ch 1, sc in each stitch, turn
Rnd 9-12: ch 1, sc in each stitch, turn
finishing edge around the top of bootie: sc evenly around opening making sure to sc in the space where the black meets red... when you reach the back of the bootie, sl st both sides of shoe together, or if you prefer to sew it so that it looks more seemless, that is entirely up to you.
fasten off and weave in ends
Antennas: with black ch 6, sc in the spot in the middle where the black meets the red... but on a black stitch... (I hope that makes sense) ch 6 more and tie off... Then knot the ends of your antennas so that it looks like a small ball shape at the end of the antennas... then cut off excess yarn.
Eyes: (Make 4) Use a G hook... ch 2, then sc 5 in 2nd chain from hook, join fasten off. Then sew on lil black buttons and sew to the booties... or if you prefer, you could just sew the eyes on with black yarn, sewing from the center of the eye.
