With the yarn in color 1 and the 3.5 mm hook

Round 1: start 5 sc in a magic ring. (5)

Round 2: inc 5 times. (10)

Round 3: [1 sc in next st, 1 inc in next st] x6. (15)

Rounds 4 to 5: 1 sc in all st. (10)

Decide where to place the eyes (BUT do not fix them yet). I put mine between Rounds 8 and 9, spaced by 2 st. Once you know where to put them, take your tapestry needle and the black cotton pearl thread. As shown in the picture below, make some eyelashes. Then place the eyes back and fix them.

The Hair :

It is now time to make the hair. It offers so many different possibilities. You can play with different hairstyles, different lengths,…

First, you have to cut several lengths of yarn (color 1) of about 8 inches long. Insert your 3 mm crochet hook under a stitch of the head and grab the middle of 1 stand, bringing it through the body. Now with your hands, wrap both ends of the strand and pull them through the loop. Repeat the same work for several lengths at a different place each time. Then with your tapestry needle, you can separate the different strands of the yarn. Cut the yarn to a length of your choice. Do the exact same work at the back of the booties.

Sew the heads to the bodies.

Congratulation, your crochet booties are done!

I hope you enjoyed this crochet pattern!
