Materials:
 I hook (5.5 mm)
 Worsted Weight Yarn in 2 colors
 Yarn needle

Gauge:
10 sc across x 12 rows high = 3″ square

Abbreviations:
Ch – chain
Sl st – slip stitch
Sc – single crochet
Hdc – half double crochet
Dc- double crochet
Rev sc – reverse single crochet (this is used as one edging option for the flower. If you are
uncomfortable with it you can use the other edging.)

Notes
Directions for smallest size are written first, with larger size adjustments in parenthesis. S (M, L)
Ignore the hook in the pictures. Some of you will notice that it is a Susan Bates H (5mm). This is
something that was changed during pattern testing. An I hook gives better stretch to the chains
for getting the loops around the feet. None of the steps where changed, though, so the pictures
still work.
I will let you know where adjustments can be made to help with fatter feet, ankles etc.

If you are unsure of the size you chose, measure the shoe on the child you are making it for. If the chains are too loose/tight around the foot but the sc’s seem to cover the top of the foot the way that you would like then just adjust the chains under the foot. If the fit is just right around the foot but the sc’s on top of the foot are too wide or narrow, move up or down a size, if you go up you will need to subtract 2 chs from the straps. If you go down a size you will need to add 2 chs to the straps. If you need to change a combination of these problems you might have to play with it a bit. Feel free to ask me for help here if you need it. Just let me know which size you made first and what the problem is. I will do my best to give you suggestions to help you make them fit better.

Heel Strap
Ch 12, (16, 20) join to the first sc on the opposite end of the sandal. All loops should be going from one side of the sandal to the other. None of them should cross each other. Break yarn, weave in ends. {Pictures F, G and H}

Measure again. Just to make sure that your heel strap fits while the shoe is on. You can add or subtract chains to adjust this fit as well.
