The summer is almost here so lets make this barefoot sandals:
Yarn (lace, light, worsted weight)- I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet Cotton size 10. But if I had to do it again, i would choose Cotton thread size 3.
I used Hook # B/2.25. But you can use any hook size depending on what kind of yarn you work with.
We will need to make 2 triangle motifs,one for each sandal.
Make ch10 and join with a sl st to form a ring.
Row 1: You will be working inside the formed ring: 3sc, then *ch5, 3sc* repeat 4 more times, then ch3 and dc st.
Row 2: *Ch6, sc in the 3rd ch st of the ch5 space of the previous round* repeat 5 more times. You will make the last sc into the ch3+dc space that you created at the end of Row 1.
Row 3: *ch3, following sts will be made into the ch6 st- 2 dc, treble crochet, double treble crochet st, ch15, double treble crochet, treble crochet and 2 dc; then into the next ch6 space- 3sc,picot of 3 chain stitches, 3sc.*repeat 2 more times but instead of ch15 make ch6.
Now you will need to make 4 tie-backs, 2 for each sandal.
Ch75, then take the triangular motif and join the 75-Ch that you created with the 6-Ch space on the side of the motif ( the Ch6 space that you created in Round 3)
Repeat this process for the other side of the sandal. Do the same for the second one.
I hope it all make sense. :))
Now when you are finished, just try your new sandals on and feel the pride!
Then make another pair for your friend!
And then another one! :)
