Introduction: Crochet Sandals
Why buy when you can make! There's nothing better than having a unique pair of sandals compared to the mass produced ones.
After looking at same things over again and again in all the shops and everyone's feet, I decided to make my own unique and stylish sandals.
You should also make them and get ready for compliments!
Step 1: Materials Required
1. wool - 2 colours, you can also use a thicker wool, I am using 4 ply wool
2. crochet hook - size 4.5
3. sole to make base of the sandal, I used an insole as it's easy to work with
6. chalk for marking
Step 2: Cut the Sole to Size
Use sandal or any insole or your feet to mark the sole and cut it to the size as in picture.
Step 3: Crocheting Sole
- take 2 strands of 4 ply wool
-make 23 chains with crochet hook
Step 4: Row 1
-make 3 tr in fourth chain from hook,
-then make 1 tr in each of 19 chains,
-and then 6 tr in last chain, joining to the first tr.
-make 3 chains 1 tr at the joint of last row,
-then 2 tr each in next 3 tr,
-then 1 tr in each of next 20 tr,
-then 2 tr in each of next 6 tr,
-1 tr in each of next 20 tr,

-1 half tr, 3 tr, 2 tr, 1 tr, 2 tr, 1 tr, 2 tr each in next 3 tr,

-1 half tr, 1 tr in next 4 tr,

Step 9: Crocheting the Second Straps
