Free Crochet Pattern | Crochet Barefoot Sandals

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.


Bug is the type of kid {like a lot others I know} who hate wearing shoes and socks...no matter how cold it is inside! These won't exactly keep your kiddos feet warm...but they will look friggin' cute as anything! Even Bug wore them for hours since her feet were still pretty free. She has been loving the Dora dance episode and calls them her dancing "shoes". Love it!


Barefoot Sandals Pattern {toddler size}
Click here for printable version. {please read note at bottom}
I have never done this before so kindly let me know if it is not working.

Materials:
F hook
Weight 3 yarn {I used caron simply soft}

Pattern:
Ch 10 & join to form a ring
2 Sc in ring
Ch 2, turn {counts as 1st dc now and throughout}, dc in 1st st, 2 dc in next st {4 dc made}
Ch 2, turn, dc in 1st st, dc in next 2, 2 dc in last dc {6 dc made}
Ch 2, turn, dc in 1st st, dc in next 4, 2dc in last {8 dc made}
Ch 2, turn, dc in 1st st, dc in next 6, 2dc in last {10 dc made}

Ankle strap options:

Loop-
Ch 20 and join on opposite dc of row {on the other side}

Tie-
Ch 20 {or more} and fasten off. Join on other side and ch same amount. Two ties created.

To put on, put on large ankle strap then pull toe strap over toe.

You can leave these the way they are or you can add a cute little flower to each. I like this flower pattern from Mel P. Designs. I made the flower with an F hook.




Please keep in mind I'm not really a pattern writer so if you find a mistake or have a suggestion you can nicely comment or email me. :) 

For smaller/larger patterns you can just make the rows until it reaches a little below the ankle and chain the ankle strap until it reaches around {it will stretch so you don't ch too much} You can also try a smaller hook size for those itty bitties.

I'd love to know if you make these! You can post a photo on my Facebook wall or shoot me an email! 


You might find me over at some of these link parties.

    1. You can do it! I bought a book from WalMart for less than $10 called "I taught myself to crochet" and learned because I had no one to teach me. It's not hard!The book even came with an assortment of crochet needles to get you started. And if you ever get confused, YouTube it! There are thousands of nice ladies out there who have made simple little videos kindly explaining things for us!!

  8. My "babies" are 12 and 13 :) What would you suggest for taking them down to infant size??

    1. I would prob chain less for the loop and use a smaller size hook. I'm not really sure what will work but if you have the footsie there near you you can kind of just work it up and see how it goes. Maybe do one less row even and do ties instead of an ankle strap if you aren't sure the ankle size. Sorry, I'm of no help am I?!

  20. Thank you for posting this pattern! Love it! I made a larger pair for my 6 year old niece and made a few modifications to the pattern. Instead of the 2 sc, I used 3 dc. The last row: chain 2 turn, 1 dc, chain 3, skip 1 dc, 1 sc, chain 3, repeat to remaining 2 stitches; 2 dc. then I made the ties. Thank you again!

  22. I've been waiting for a pattern like this to crochet for my 4-month-old grand-daughter to wear for my youngest daughter's beach wedding! Too cute! Thanks for your patterns!

    ReplyDelete
  23. OMG! These are so cute! I can't wait to find a baby to wear them! Hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  24. A number of years ago I made something similar for adult size. I used gold or silver metalic elastic and added beads . Very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow! I've made these before and sewn on ribbon for the ties. My daughter and granddaughters in Hawaii wear them. They're especially cute on the baby.

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG! These are too too cute! Thank you so much for linking them up! And they're so easy to make! Just a triangle with two chain straps. You could make enough to match all a baby girl's outfits!

  27. can anyone tell me the length in inches of baby sandals?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for the tutorial! I made up a pair using your tutorial. I used crochet thread instead of yarn for a different look and embroidary thread to make the flower. They turned out way cute! Now I just need to figure out a size chart so I can make up lots in all sizes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Tiffany Sanderson,

    I make barefoot sandals and I use the chart I found at craftyarncouncil.com Foot Size Chart. I even drew or used clipart pics of feet that I maneuvered to be the correct size in inches to fit the guidelines of these charts. If you need more info check with me at http://brendasbric-a-brac.blogspot.com/ Just comment on a post and I will get back with you.

  30. What size is a F hook? I'm in the uk and all my crochet hooks are in mm! Thank you. Btw these are absolutely adorable and once I know what size hook to use, I'll be making and taking to my lil granddaughter in Thailand.

  32. I just made these for my 3 month old and I thought I'd share what I did.
    Ch 8 and sl st to form ring. 2 sc into ring
    Ch 2, turn. 1 dc in first st. 2 dc in next st. (4 dc)
    Ch 2, turn. 1 dc in first st. 2 dc in next 2 st. (6 dc).


    Ch 20 for loop around ankle. Join with a sl st to first dc on other side. Fasten off and weave in ends.
    Embellish as you like. :)

    Hope that helps anyone looking for a newborn size. My baby has small feet and wears a size 0 shoe.

  33. Oh...and I used an E/3.5 mm hook and Caron simply soft yarn.

  34. My MIL had a pattern using elastic thread/yarn & beads, which were referred to as "Hawaiian Snow Shoes". I think I'll make these for my great nieces for next Christmas or birthdays. They're all in love with the Princess theme and dress-up.

  35. I saw crocheted toddler sandals the same as these but with a sole, have you ever seen those or made them? I have a sister that crochets and she said she would make them if she had a pattern. They were the cutest shoes like flip flops but with a strap that when around the heel.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for the pattern! I made a couple pair for my dolly & they turned out great!
    I used some yarn that I was given & it didn't have a label so don't know the brand but, it does have a Pearl colored strand on it if that helps. Also I used an E hook plus did the full pattern. I figure it's about a 6mo old size. Thanks for a pattern that is easy 2 do

  37. I found the pattern a little confusing. Could you help me clear it up? After you 2 sc in the ring, you chain 2 and turn, DC in to WHAT first stitch? the chain? the ring? It may sound silly, I crochet quiet well, but other peoples patterns all seem so different from one another and Ive tried this the way it makes sense to me, but it doesnt turn out. ;(
