Rootin' Tootin' Cowboy/Cowgirl Booties Pattern

This is written for a size 3-6 months but I've also made them in a 0-3 months using this same pattern and using a D hook. I'm sure larger sizes could be made with larger hooks.

Materials:
• Size E Crochet Hook

Abbreviations:
• ch = chain
• sc = single crochet
• hdc = half double crochet
• st = stitch
• BLO = back loop only
• flo = front loop only

• sl st = slip stitch
• hdc dec = half double crochet decrease
• dc = double crochet
