Easy Free Crochet Doll Shoes Pattern With Video Tutorial

This free crochet doll shoes pattern is an easy pattern that looks great in different colors. Here you’ll find detailed instructions on how to make your adorable doll shoes as well as a step-by-step video tutorial.

This simple design requires basic crocheting skills but the entire project is done using single crochet stitches (and some single crochet variations like back loop single crochet) so it is accessible for beginners. These doll shoes are great for boy dolls and girl dolls alike.

This free crochet doll shoes pattern is Week 5 of the Amigurumi Advent Calendar CAL and is designed to fit my Advent Addy and Advent Adam dolls, however, these shoes could fit many of my other amigurumi doll patterns as well.

How to Crochet Doll Shoes:

This pair of crochet doll shoes are a classic shoe design as I wanted to make them look like sneakers. First we will crochet the sole of the shoes using one color and then we will change colors to the main color of the shoe an crochet the body and tops of the shoes.

Then, using a yarn needle and either our first color of yarn (or white if your sole color you have selected is different) to do some easy embroidery to add some shoe laces to the front of the shoes. This little detail really adds a lot fo the shoe without much effort.

Tip: Take a moment to count your stitches to make sure you have the correct number of stitches at the ends of a round before proceeding to the next round.

Skill Level:

  • Easy


  • U.S. Terminology



Special Stitches and Techniques:

  • Invisible Finish / Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Skip a stitch and place the tapestry needle through the top of the next stitch from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST worked under the back loop of the stitch and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

  • Single Crochet (SC) Join: With a slip knot already on the hook, insert hook into the designated stitch. YO and pull up a loop.  YO and pull through both loops on the hook.

Finished Size:

  • Doll is approximately 10.5” tall


  • Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square


  • These shoes are made to fit my Advent Adam Doll. Gauge is important for ensuring that all of the parts of your doll fit appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout each project.  Using the same yarn line and hook throughout each project can also assist with minimizing gauge/tension changes.

  • For a cleaner SCDEC on pieces worked in continuous rounds, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each ST rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease.  Check out my invisible decrease tutorial on to see it done.

  • For pieces worked in turned rows, use a normal SCDEC stitch instead of the invisible decrease.

  • Color changes are done using the last YO of the previous stitch (except where otherwise indicated).
