This pair goes just as well with that twirly dress as it does with shorts and jeans. Perfect to show off those tiny toes this summer!

I used DK yarn from Hobby Lobby which comes in some lovely shades for the top part of the sandals. The sole is made up of worsted weight yarn to keep it thick. The double layered sole gives it the sturdiness required for a sandal.

How to Crochet Baby Sandals for Beginners- Some Tips 

If you have never made booties or sandals before, you might find it hard to make the left and the right in the same size. I remember struggling with it when I was a beginner.

* My first suggestion is to make both the soles first to ensure they are of the same size.

*Your hands tend to relax by the time you start working on the second sandal which may result in a bigger size. So watch your gauge when you crochet the second one.

Crochet Baby Sandals Sole Pattern

Tips for sole

1. Count your stitches after every round. You count the stitches you see around the sole after you make the slip stitch at the end of the round and the slip stitch is also counted as a stitch.

2. Sole is worked in the round without turning at the end of the rounds.

3. Variations if any for bigger sizes are given in brackets in the order 3-6 (6-9, 9-12)months

How to Crochet Baby Sandals Sole 

Using F hook and worsted weight yarn chain 13 (14, 16). Chain uniformly to maintain gauge and keep your sole stiff.

1. Work into the free loops of the foundation chain

Round 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 6 st(7 st, 8 st), 1 hdc in next 4 st (4 st, 5st), 3 hdc in last ch, do not turn, work into the free loops along the opposite side of the foundation chain as shown in pic 1 above, 1 hdc in next 4 st( 4 st, 5 st), 1sc in each chain across, sl st to beginning ch 1———– 26 st( 28 st, 32 st)

Make 4 soles, 2 in white and 2 in beige color, as you will need 2 for each sandal.

Joining the Soles Together

Use F hook and DK weight yarn in the color you chose for the rim of the triangle toe top, hold a white and a beige sole together with the wrong sides touching each other, and sl st them together. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Toe Top

NOTE: For the toe top, use E( 3.5mm) hook for 3-6 months and continue with F hook for the bigger sizes.

2. Beginning Round 1 with a magic ring

3. Round 1 completed

Round 1 (See collage above): Make a magic ring by wrapping the yarn around two fingers, insert hook inside the ring and pull up a loop, ch 2, and into the ring work, 2 hdc, ch 3, 3 hdc, ch 3, 3 hdc, ch 3, pull the yarn tail to close the ring, sl st to the top of beginning ch 2. Fasten off. After the first round, it will look like Pic 3 above.

4. Round 2 completed

Round 2: Join new color with a sl st into one of the ch -3 spaces, and ch 2 ( counts as first hdc), 2 hdc, ch 3, 3 hdc in to the same ch-3 space, *[ch 2, (3 hdc, ch 3, 3hdc) into the next ch-3 space], repeat from * one more time, ch 2, sl st to top of beginning ch 2. Fasten off. It will look like Pic 4 above.

 

5. Round 3 completed

Round 3: Join new color with a sl st in to one of the ch-3 spaces, 3 sc in the same ch-3 space, *[1 sc in the next 3 hdc stitches, 2 sc in the next ch- 2 space, 1 sc in the next 3 hdc stitches, (1 sc, ch 1 and 1 sc) into the next ch-3 space]*.

Repeat from *- * one more time, 1 sc in the next 3 hdc stitches, 2 sc in next ch-2 space, 1 sc in the next 3 hdc stitches, sl st to first sc, sl st to next sc again. Do not fasten off as you will use the working yarn to attach it to the soles. Your work will look like Pic 5 above at the end of Round 3.

Make a couple of knots and weave in the first tail securely around the center to ensure your magic ring doesn’t unravel. Add a couple of knots and weave in all the remaining yarn tails.

Attaching the Toe Top to the Soles and Making the Back Strap

Notes

1. Variations if any for the bigger sizes are given in brackets in the order 3-6 (6-9, 9-12) months.

2. Switch back to F hook for 3-6 months size.

Right sandal

1. Now you will attach the triangle-shaped upper to the two soles you sl stitched together earlier. Mark 18 (18, 20) slip stitches on the heel side.

6. Mark sts on the heel side

To mark symmetrically, fold the sole along the long middle line and count back 9 (9, 10)sts from the mid-back and place the marker on each side. Once you open the fold you will get the specified number of stitches marked for your size as shown above.

7. For the right sandal, sl st the toe strap to the point indicated by the green dot

8. Ch 3 for side strap and sl st to marked st on sole, sl st to next st on heel side

2. Continue working on the toe top, ch 3 (for all the sizes), sl st to the the top sole at the point shown in Pic 7 for the right sandal, working back up along the chains made, 1 sc in to each of the 3 chains until you reach back near the triangle, sl st along the side of the triangle until you reach the next corner, ch 3 for side strap, sl st to the marked st on the sole, sl st to the next st on the heel side, see Pic 8, work back up along the three chains, 1 sc in each of the 3 chains, Ch 23 (25, 29) for the back strap. The strap though it looks very long, will shrink after finishing with slip stitches. Turn and work back along the chain you just made, sl st to the 5th chain, 1 sl st in to each chain across, sl st to the triangle toe top, continue to work a line of sl stitches along the base of the triangle until you reach the next corner, ch 3 for side strap, sl st to the marked st on the sole, sl st to the next st on the heel side, work back up along the three chains, 1 sc in each of the 3 chains, work sl stitches along the last side of the triangle until you reach the toe strap, fasten off with a long tail.

The chain 5 ring at the tip of the strap acts as the buttonhole.

9. Reinforce toe strap by sewing with the yarn tail

Using the yarn tail left and a yarn needle, reinforce the toe strap further by running the needle down through the toe strap and both the layers of soles, then working back up again through the soles and toe strap and back to the sole. You can adjust the length of the toe strap at this stage. Make a couple of knots under the sole and pull and hide the yarn tail between the two layers of the soles. Trim the excess.

Left Sandal

1. Make another Triangle toe top following the same pattern above, using E hook for size 3-6 months and F hook for bigger sizes. Now you will attach the triangle-shaped upper to the other two soles you sl stitched together to make your left sandal. Mark 18 (18, 20 ) slip stitches on the heel side as you did earlier.

 

 

10. For the left sandal sl st the toe strap to the point indicated by the green dot

2. Switch back to F hook for 3-6 months size. Continue working on the toe top, ch 3 ( for all the sizes), sl st to the top sole at the point shown in Pic 10 above, working back up along the chains made, 1 sc into each of the 3 chains until you reach back near the triangle, sl st along the side of the triangle until you reach the next corner of the triangle, ch 3 for side strap, sl st to the marked st on the sole, sl st to the next st on the heel side, work back up along the three chains, 1 sc in each of the 3 chains, sl st to the triangle toe top, continue to work a line of sl stitches along the base of the triangle until you reach the next corner, ch 3 for side strap, sl st to the marked st on the sole, sl st to the next st on the heel side, work back up along the three chains, 1 sc in each of the 3 chains, ch 23 (25, 29) for the back strap. Turn and work back along the chain you just made, sl st into the 5th chain, 1 sl st in to each chain across, sl st to the triangle toe top, continue to work a line of sl stitches along the last side of the triangle until you reach the toe strap. Fasten off with a long tail.

Use the yarn tail to reinforce the toe strap just like you did for the right sandal.

Ankle Side of the Sandals( For Left and Right Sandals)

Mark (or eyeball) 4 stitches in the middle of the heel side of the sole.

Row 1: Using the same yarn as the toe top, sl st to the marked st, 1 sc in the same st, 1 sc in next 3 st. Turn.———4 sc

Row 2: Ch 1 ( not counted as a st), 1 sc in same st as ch 1, 1 sc in next 3 st. Turn.———-4 sc

11. Working the ankle back into 4 sts on the heel side

Repeat the above Row 14 (17, 19) more times or until your strip measures 3-1/4 ( 3-3/4, 4 ) inches. Do not fasten off. See Pic above.

12. Fold and sl st the two layers together near the sole. Fasten off leaving a long tail.

Fold the ankle strap over to the sole side and sl st the two layers together near the sole as shown, fasten off leaving a 20 inch long tail for sewing. Pass the ankle strap/back strap through this ankle part.

13. Use the yarn tail to sew as shown by the arrow. The line near the sole will be worked into the two layers of soles as well.

See the pic above before starting to sew. Using the long tail sew from left to right along the base of the ankle back again, this time run your needle down through the base of the ankle back and two layers of soles as well. Under the sole follow the pattern of the sl st to keep it neat. Now sew up along the right side of the band going in through both the layers, sew to the left just under the inserted back strap taking care not to trap the back strap, then sew down on the left side until you hit the sole. Weave in the remaining tails and pull and hide them between the two layers of soles. So you now have a tube at the top of the ankle part through which the back strap passes.

Finishing

1. Weave in any tails left.

2. Sew on the buttons to the side of the triangle toe top.
