Crosses Barefoot Sandals -free crochet pattern-


Sometimes I design things just to see if I can do it.  I love barefoot sandals and am always trying to come up with new ideas.  I played around with this design for two days, I had some different variations of it, and finally came up with this as the best one.  These come out perfectly in size 10 crochet thread, but not in the natural color.... the natural is a bit thinner so you'll want to use a larger hook!  

Designed By: Farrah Hodgson

Skill Level: Easy

Materials: 
  • small amount of cotton crochet thread, Aunt Lydia's used in pattern.
  • size 1.5mm crochet hook
  • needle for sewing in ends
Size: One size fits most

Gauge: N/A

  1. I love these. Ornate but not too ornate. I don't do much that allows for barefoot sandals, but I think I'll make these anyway. Who knows, maybe I'll figure out how to add a sole and I could wear them to church (with a little less of the sexy leg ties!)
