Crochet Flip Flops Pattern for Baby, in English and French Versions

My fashionable take on the oldest footwear man has ever known, the Flip flops. They are popularly called Thongs in Australia and Jandals in Newzealand. The earliest known flip-flops were made from plant fibers or wood.
It is one of the most common types of footwear in developing countries as it is inexpensive, often less than a dollar. Flip flops have really caught on as a trend and are as ubiquitous as the athletic shoes. You see kids wearing them to the beach or the pool all the time. It gives you that ‘out to have fun’ feeling.
I had never thought that babies could wear flip-flops as it would tickle their toes! I saw one of my friend’s baby wearing it at 3 months and was totally bowled over by it. It was the cutest sight I had ever seen. This design stems from my memory of that day.
I prefer the version without the flowers but if you opt to make a pair of white flip flops then the flowers would add a splash of color. If you are going for the one without flowers choose two bright coordinating colors to make it fun and vibrant. If you are making the sun hat, make the flip-flops in matching colors to spice up a simple outfit. Sun hat Pattern has to be purchased separately.

*Pattern includes 4 sizes 0-3, 3-6, 6-9 and 9-12 months.

*Pattern is worked in worsted weight (Aran) yarn

* Like all my other patterns it has pictures of every stage to make it easy.*Pattern is written in Standard American Terms.

    Love the pattern and all the different styles you made they are just adorable and I saw the one with the matching hat and it is just to cute for words. Excellent work and design, I am jealous….LOL!!! (",

    Absolutely LOVE these! I bought your pattern last week (along with the hat) for a friend who is due later this month and they were a hit! I had people without babies asking for them to use as rear-view mirror ornaments! I just bought 5 more patterns because I have 13 friends who are pregnant right now so I have tons of little gifts to make. You have so much talent and I'm so glad someone sent the link to your blog to me! You should do and etsy shop though, as you design more patterns it's going to be hard to wade through them to see what you have. Thanks again!!

    Love the flip flops and easy to make until you get to the strap along the front. I can't seem to get the little knobby bumps to show up on the front side. No matter what loop I do the tr and the sc through they come out on the inside? Aslo my bumps aren't that bumpy either, lol. Help??!!

      Who ever heard of "trying" to get bumps to be bigger! LOL

  17. January 11, 2012 / 2:38 am

    @Anonymous, the easy way to fix your bumps is just to push it to the right side, as simple as that! To make your bumps bigger try using a bigger hook. May be your hands are tighter than mine making the bump smaller. It is also possible that you are making your single crochet looser which would make the bump less visible. In that case consciously do the sc tight.

    I'm really bad at crochet and Im about to be a first time mother next month. I'm having a baby girl and I fell in love with the sandles for summer. Because I'm really bad at crochet I was wondering if they sell the sandles already made?? I really, really want some sandles for my baby girl to wear in the summer.

    • February 22, 2012 / 3:51 am

      Your gauge could be too tight. Try a bigger hook. Write to me using Contact Me form if you need more help.

      Hi Michelle, I know it looks complicated but it's really not that hard to learn. I went to the store, got a learn-to-crochet book that showed simple crochet stitches and how to do all the "special" stitches. I also bought a kit with, I think, 5 crochet hooks and just went home, sat down with the book and a crochet hook and practiced. I hope you do try this…it's really relaxing and I love it SO much!

  24. March 30, 2012 / 1:10 am

    I wish, I wish, I wish I knew how to crochet. These are so cute, I just might need to learn!!!

  25. March 31, 2012 / 5:37 pm

    Every baby girl should have a brand new pair of flip flops for spring! And these are just SO cute!

  29. April 4, 2012 / 8:38 am

    They are just too gorgeous! What a lovely pattern you made here :-). Very cute!!! ♥

  30. April 6, 2012 / 12:38 am

    Are these beginner level? My aunt wants me to make them for her baby daughter, and I'm ok at crocheting, but I can't do any super complex stitches. Do they involve anything harder than triple crochet?

    • April 7, 2012 / 5:17 pm

      @Emma, these require only the basic crochet stitches and don't need anything more.

  31. April 12, 2012 / 2:16 pm

    are all these flip flop patterns sold as one BIG pattern or are they seperate????i'm confused ..i can't find them seperetly!!!!HELP ME PLEASE maybe i'm loking in the wrong place????? monica from ny

    • April 12, 2012 / 5:48 pm

      @Monica, the flip flops with flowers and the one without flowers are included in one pattern. It is the hat that you have to purchase separately.

  32. April 17, 2012 / 5:12 pm

    OMG!!!! all those little sandals are just to die for!!!!! divine, just divine]!!!

  33. June 4, 2012 / 9:17 pm

    I have always enjoyed to crochet and done mostly blankets scarfs etc etc but want to branch out and try other things. I was just recently laid off and stress has got the best of me UNTIL I pick up my hook and start to do my thing. I love these sandals and wish I could afford the pattern. Maybe one day. In the mean time Thanks for the beauty you have done in yarn. Your something else. Take Care and Enjoy!

    I love these, made for baby shower and they were a hit. A friend asked if I could make her adult size to use for slippers. Do you have an adult pattern? please let me know.
