I finally have some free crochet time on my hands now that I finished my girls fall sweaters. I had to rip it out and start over twice! All the while these little shoes were tickling my brain saying "make me!" Well, here they are... the cutest little moccasins ever! Here is the free pattern, enjoy!

Worsted weight yarn (I used Vanna White in Honey)

Wrap yarn around your flattened hand many times. Cut one edge, this will leave you with a bunch of strands.
Insert hook from outside pointing in through the top stitches, and pull through a loop. Put cut ends through loop and pull tight. For security, place a drop of super glue on the backside of your fringe. You wont see it or feel it but it will keep the fringe from coming undone.
After you finish all the fringe, give it a 1" hair cut.
Cut a long length of yarn and tie a bow around the very front sc column. Knot it three times.
String beads and tie each end off with three knots on top of each other to keep the beads from being pulled off. You can also use your superglue on the knot as well.
Voila! Please pardon my awful photography... a new camera is on my Christmas list!
