These sandals use the same pattern as The Queen's Feet Barefoot sandals available in my etsy shop.
You will need basic needle tatting experience easily learned in my other instructables including the double stitch(ds), picots(p), rings(r), chains(ch) and joining as well as Josephine chains and basic crochet.
This design uses size 10 crochet cotton, a size 5 tatting needle and a size 7 or 8 crochet hook.

Step 1: The Center Clover
The pattern is 4 rings of 5ds, p, 3ds, 9p sep by 3ds, p, 5ds close join each ring together by the 1st and 11th picot.
To join the first and fourth rings together for the center motif, first I make the last ring up to the final join, then I pull those stitches off the needle being careful to not pull the thread all the way through. Then I use a crochet hook to make the join and work the last stitches. Pull those stitches through, finish and close the ring. See the photos for details.
