Arachnid Barefoot Sandals -free crochet pattern-

Although I am still buried in snow, I am dreaming of summer!

I love designing barefoot sandals! I have several ideas for patterns that I'd like to write this year, and here is my first!

I really didn't know what to name them at first, so I waited until they were finished, then it came to me.

It kind of resembles a spider in the center, but I couldn't call them "spider lace", because that's entirely something else in crochet.  But spiders have eight legs, and arachnids have eight legs, thus the name.

This is an easy pattern; starting with the toe loop, you will work upward toward the ankle.  The straps are worked in one piece across the top, creating the
final row.

I've included photos to help you along the way.

XvX Visor -free crochet pattern-


I've been using this brimmed edge pattern for several years on regular winter hats, but I wanted something a little more airy and fresh for spring.  How about just a visor?  I envisioned something light colored and lacy, and when I got down to writing, it came out exactly as planned!  Of course, you can make this in any color you want, or even multi-colored.  I also want to try this out in cotton yarn!

The pattern begins from the top of the headband and works it's way down in rows.  It is worked in one piece, back and forth; because in the end, you will attach two 30 mm buttons to close it up.  You don't need to make any buttons holes, because Rows 2 and 6 (X-Stitich Rows) have enough gap, that the buttons will fit through, therefore, allowing you to adjust the size of your headband.  

From the last row of the headband, you continue on with the ribbed visor.  You work back in forth in short rows along the headband edge, increasing stitches and rows towards the center, to give the visor brim some flex and curve.  

When you're done, just stretch the visor out to shape it! The visor will hold in place on it's own!  (as long as you use a heavier yarn, soft yarns will not work)

High Top - Legwarmer Barefoot Sandals -free crochet pattern-


Feet are on my mind after recently designing two new sock patterns, but I'm tired of winter, and I feel like beaches, flip flops, and barefoot sandals!  I actually designed this legwarmer style barefoot sandal/sock pattern last summer, which was created with "yoga socks" in mind, for a friend. (who was actually using them for yoga!)  So, recently, I had a few balls of sock yarn lying around, and took that opportunity to actually write out my pattern to share.  Enjoy!

These barefoot socks work from the foot and up to the top of the leg.  If you can make a granny square, you can make these!  The double crochet stitches turn into longer stitches (htr, tr, hdtr, and dtr) as you work up the leg to give it more stretch.  You can also quit at any time as you're working up the leg, if you want them shorter, just stop after any round and skip to the very last finishing round.

These look great pulled all of the way up to your knee, or slouched down as well!

  • Small crochet hook
