Hello Friends,

I am back with yet another very easy and super cute project- Summer baby sandals. These crochet baby sandals have dual color soles which not only give very elegant look to the booties but also give extra soft cushion to those tiny feet.

Abbreviations used:

Ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

dc2tog – double crochet 2 together

sc3tog – single crochet 3 together

Sl st – slip stitch

Gauge:

The conventional gauge checking method does not help for shoe making because the size of sole is very important.

So, my advice here is to stick to same hook and type of yarn, make a sole, check the size and then proceed with pattern. If your sole size is smaller then go one size up in hook or if sole is bigger then go down by one size, in that way you will not change the stitch count.

Finished Size :

The pattern below is given for 1st size, i.e. New born-3 months old baby.

Sole length – 3.5″ or 9.0 cm

Cut the yarn. This completes one sole. Make 2 soles with pink color yarn and 2 with off white color.

Connecting soles together-

Take one of the off-white soles and one of the pink soles, place them back to back so that their right sides are facing out. Now take out a stitch marker from one of the soles and connect both soles with one stitch marker. (Be careful to connect them at right stitch)

Take pink color yarn, keep off-white sole facing toward you and start making slip stitch through both the soles, as shown in the pics below. So that both the soles will get connected.

You can leave sole’s tail ends, between the soles, so they will be secured and hidden, no need to sew 😊. Continue slip stitching around the sole.

This completes one sole. Leave 2”-3” tail yarn for finishing, which we will do after finishing strap. Don’t remove the stitch marker.

Front Strap-

Leave 6 sts on left of stitch marker.

Insert hook in between 6th and 7th st of off-white sole and take it out from the space between 7th and 8th st, i.e. inserting hook under 7th st and working around it. Make Sl st around 7th st.

Make ch 12, leave 6 sts on right side of stitch marker and connect with Sl st around 7th st.

Sl sts around 8th and 9th st.

How-to-crochet-easy-summer-sandals-for-baby-06

Make 1 dc in each ch [12 sts]. Sk 8th st on left side and Sl st around 9th st, this will connect strap to sole.

Sl st around 10th and 11th st. Make 1 hdc in each st [12 sts].

How-to-crochet-easy-summer-sandals-for-baby-07

Sk 10th st on right side and Sl st in 11th st. Cut the yarn and sew tail end.

How-to-crochet-easy-summer-sandals-for-baby-08

This completes the front strap of the sandal.

Finishing slip stitch-

As we have finished the front strap, we don’t need to keep stitch marker any more so let’s finish the slip stitch.

Take out stitch marker, insert the tail yarn in yarn needle. Insert needle under both the loops of first slip stitch (it looks like this ‘>’), pull out the needle. Insert it back in the center of last sip stitch (from where the tail yarn was out), pull it out from other side of sole.

How-to-crochet-easy-summer-sandals-for-baby-09

Take out the needle and hide the tail yarn in between the soles.

Till this point both left and right sandals are identical so make one more sandal up to this level.

Right sandal-

Leave 2sts from front strap on right side of the sole, insert hook under 3rd st and draw pink color yarn out.

R1: Make ch 1. Starting from next st, make 1 hdc around each st. [22 sts including 1st ch], we should be left with 2 sts from strap.
