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!

Htr (half treble crochet)= Yarn over hook twice,insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook); yarn over and pull through two loops (3 loops on hook); yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (one loop left, and htr complete)

Tr (treble crochet)= Yarn over (twice), insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, draw yarn through stitch, (yarn over, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) 3 times

Rnd 2: Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell, ch-4, shell) in next space; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (6 shells made)



Rnd 3: Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; shell in next space, (shell, ch-6, shell) in next space; shell in next space; (shell, ch-2, shell in next space); shell in next space; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (9 shells made)



Rnd 4: Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell in next space) twice; (shell, ch-8, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) twice; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) twice; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (12 shells made)



Rnd 5: Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell in next space) 3 times; (shell, ch-10, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 3 times; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 3 times; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (15 shells made)



Rnd 6: Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell in next space) 4 times; (shell, ch-12, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 4 times; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 4 times; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (18 shells made) Do not fasten off.



Rnd 7 (MEDIUM AND LARGE SIZE ONLY): Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell in next space) 5 times; (shell, ch-14, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 5 times; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 5 times; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of begining ch5 to join. (21 shells made) Do not fasten off.



Rnd 8: (LARGE SIZE ONLY): Sl st in 1st ch2 space, ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), shell in same space; (shell in next space) 6 times; (shell, ch-16, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 6 times; (shell, ch-2, shell) in next space; (shell in next space) 6 times; 2dc in first ch2 space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch5 to join. (24 shells made) Do not fasten off.


Connection

Rnd 1: Sl st in first ch2 space, do not turn, ch 43, careful not to twist the chain, sl st in ch2 space on opposite side of beginning ch2 space to join.



Rnd 2: Ch3 (counts as 1dc), (shell in next space) (5, 6, 7) times; shell in next ch2 space; working along ch sts, (skip next 3 chs, shell in next ch) 10 times, 2dc in first ch2 space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch3 to join. (17, 18, 19 shells)




Rnds 3-15: Sl st in next space; ch3 (counts as 1dc), (shell in next space) (16, 17, 18) times; 2dc in first space, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch3 to join.



Rnds 16-20: Sl st in next space; ch4 (counts as 1htr), (htrshell in next space) (16, 17, 18) times; 2htr in first space, sl st in 4th ch of beginning ch4 to join.

Rnds 21-25: Sl st in next space; ch5 (counts as 1tr), (trshell in next space) (16, 17, 18) times; 2tr in first space, sl st in 5th ch of beginning ch5 to join.

Rnds 26-30: Sl st in next space; ch6 (counts as 1hdtr), (hdtrshell in next space) (16, 17, 18) times; 2hdtr in first space, sl st in 6th ch of beginning ch6 to join.

Rnds 31-35: Sl st in next space; ch7 (counts as 1dtr), (dtrshell in next space) (16, 17, 18) times; 2dtr in first space, sl st in 7th ch of beginning ch7 to join.

Rnd 36: Ch1, sc in same space, sc in each space between next 2 sts, sl st in 1st st to join. (51, 54, 57sc)

Fasten off! 
Sew in Ends!
Make two!
