Kaleidoscope Boots Crochet Pattern for American Girl Dolls

Crochet a Rainbow! These Rainbow Striped Boots are so cute and a lot of fun to make. I used scrap yarn to create these boots. Use two colors or up to eight colors. It is up to you!

These boots are great for little ones because there are no snaps or buttons. Easy to put on and take off, but the boots do not fall off the doll’s feet. Adorable and inexpensive gift!
