Barefoot Sandals

I was commissioned to make a pair of barefoot sandals, and was tagged in the above photo on Facebook. So I looked on the internet for a short time and did not find any that looked quite like them. So-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o I pulled out the size 10 Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread and went to work crocheting and looking at the photo. I can’t lie, I crocheted and unraveled my work several times before I came up with

this. I did write down a few instructions on the amount of chains and doubles, but I do not want to write the pattern for these, so please don’t ask. 😉 I really do not like writing patterns because it takes me away from the one thing that I love to do and that is crochet. I think they will look adorable on my friends’ daughters foot. I will share as soon as I can take a picture of them on actual feet. 🙂 I hope you all have a great Thursday.

  8. So, as you, I have scoured the internet for a pattern for these and havent found one. I know you said you didnt write down the pattern (and dont want to lol) I just have a few questions. How did you start it? lol. I can figure out the rest but I have NO idea how to start it. Can you help me please =) Thanks

  9. Hi Amy! If I remember right I started in the middle on one of the ovals. Starting with a chain and then joined with a sl st to make an oval ring. I then placed some doubles into the oval. The next row looks like a double with a chain in between all the way around. Then I did some sc’s with a ch 3 in between each sc. I chained again and joined with a sl st to the top of the first oval. The next row I again placed doubles in the oval and so on and so on. I hope this helps? Thanks so much for stopping by to ask. Hugs, Tamara
