Step 1: Materials

  • Needle
  • Yarn
  • Sandals

Step 2: How to Crochet a Sandal

  • Get a needle and make holes that are half an inch apart. Also, take off the strips on the sandal so that you're left with just the sole.

Step 3: How to Crochet a Sandal

  • Then, stick the needle into a hole then grab yarn and put it through the hole. Next, grab a yarn and put it through both loops. Now you just repeat the same process until you go all around the sandal.

Step 4: How to Crochet a Sandal

  • When you’re going to knit the middle top part of the sandal, knit across about five times. Then once you get to one side, loop the yarn once and start knitting to the other side. Then you just repeat.

Step 5: Having Trouble?

If you're still having a hard time trying to knit, here's a quick video that shows a better understanding of how to start knitting the sandal.

    Are you going through the sole at an angle or cutting a grove on the bottom between the holes to prevent the yarn from fraying from rubbing on the floor?

    I went through the sole at an angle, but you can do it from the bottom.
