Crocodile Stitch Gladiators, Both Indoor and Outdoor Versions Included, US Sizes 5-12

Share the Love!

Now includes an outdoor version!

Pin it for later:

I am so stoked about this crochet pattern! Now, why did I not come up with this idea before? My Baby Gladiators were probably the first pattern of its kind and I got rave reviews for it.

I got many requests for adult size Gladiator sandals, but a plain one did not catch my fancy. Adding the crocodile stitch to the toe top has made all the difference, don’t you agree?

From the many pictures I added, you might have already guessed that I really enjoyed photographing this sandal. It looks even more fab when you wear it on your feet. If you make one, I would love to see a picture.
A big thank you to Nikki Little for suggesting the beautiful name, Boho Dreamz Sandals. I loved it because it has the “Dreamz” from my blog name.
* The pattern includes US sizes, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12. Includes an indoor version with crochet soles and a bonus outdoor version with Flip Flop soles.
*Hooks F(3.75mm) and H(5mm) are used for the pattern.
* The sole of the indoor version is worked using worsted weight yarn. It has two layers and a layer of quilter’s batting is added between them to make it sturdy and cushy.
* The right and left soles are shaped differently just like regular sandals.
* The upper is worked using DK ( size 3 yarn). I picked Baby Bee Sweet Delight Yarn from Hobby Lobby, as this yarn was thinner than most DK and did not make the crocodile stitches bulky. The yarn comes in many colors making it a delight to work with. The colors used were Carrot, Infant Teal, and Naked.
* The crochet pattern is designed in such a way that you get a sturdy sandal that you can comfortably walk in.

*Additional supplies for outdoor version:

1.) A pair of beige Flip flops (Old Navy preferred) 2.) 48LB hemp cord for border 3.) A 2.5mm hook or any piercing tool 4.) Shoe goo or any footwear adhesive 5.) Sewing pins to position the ankle side on the sole

    I bet this could be worked on to a flip flop sole too. These are too adorable to just wear in the house!

      The description states there are two versions. 1 indoor and the other version includes the outdoor one made with flip flop shoe soles.

      Yes, the patterns you purchase from my blog are emailed to you. I general email in a couple of hours unless it is night time here and I am sleeping. Thank you for your patience.

    Hi there

    If I buy could you possibly mail out the pattern as I don't have a printer on my iPad

    • April 6, 2017 / 2:15 am

      I am sorry, I sell only in digital format. You can try working directly off your iPad.

      I can't print from my tablet but we have a scanner on our printer or you can take it to a local photo copier. I call up the pages and scan/copy the page. Just make sure you turn your screen rotator off

    I purchased your pattern for these through Raveley, I'm wondering if there will be an undated pattern for the outdoor version. Thanks

      If you give me your email, I can send you the outdoor version.
