Flower Barefoot Sandals

After I uploaded my "Butterfly" Barefoot Sandals for a baby video on the internet, I had a request to do a "Flower" Barefoot Sandals. I wanted to make several shapes myself - such as heart's, circle's and of course flower's too. So, obviously this was a great opportunity to make another barefoot sandals video - this time with flower design as requested by one of my viewers.
Since I learned how to make videos for left handed knitters and crocheters, lefties are not kept behind.

So, all you crocheters that have either babies at home, or friends with small babies - here is a free pattern.

If you'd like to crochet the "Flower" sandals along my "crochet along video", then the video for

  • "Right-Handed" crocheters can be found HERE 
  • and the video for "Left-Handed" crocheters is HERE.

PLUS, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel (with many tutorial videos) HERE

So let's spread love with knits and crochet. Enjoy.


Materials:
any cotton DK yarn - leftovers (several yards) - 4 colors
hook - US size E,  3.50 mm
scissors
sewing/yarn needle for weaving the ends in

Step-by-Step:

Make 2.

color #1 (in my case blue)

Row 1         magic circle, sl st, 10 sc, join

Row 2         sl st along dc edge to get to ch7-space; make into ch7-space: 2 sc, 2 hdc, 5 dc, 2 hdc, 2 sc;  sl st along dc edge to get to ch4-space; make into ch4-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc;    sl st along dc edge to get to ch4-space; make into ch4-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc;  sl st along dc edge to get to ch7-space; make into ch7-space: 2 sc, 2 hdc, 5 dc, 2 hdc, 2 sc; join

color #2 (in my case blue)

First crochet many chains = about 12" long string, then you will proceed to crochet around the edge as such:

Row 3         Start in the left corner of 3 dc (at the top): 1 sc, then crochet 1 sc st into each of 8 sts along he edge; ch6, then starting at 3rd ch st make 4 sl sts; sl st into sc st; then make 1 sc into each of 12 following sts; ch4, then starting at 3rd ch st make 2 sl st and sl st into sc st; 1 sc sts into each of 3 sts, ch8 (loop for the toe), 1 sc into next 4 sts; ch4, then starting at 3rd ch st make 2 sl st and sl st into sc st; then make 1 sc into each of  next 12 ch sts; ch6, then starting at 3rd ch st make 4 sl sts; sl st into sc st; then crochet 1 sc st into each of 8 sts along he edge;

Finish crocheting many chains = about 12" long string, tie a knot at the ends of both strings.

Weave in all ends.
