Gather Your Supplies
For this project, I recommend using Lion Brand Jeans. It’s extremely soft and comes in a variety of neutrals (original Jeans) and colors (Jeans Colors). It’s a worsted (medium) weight acrylic yarn that’s super soft to the touch.
To make one pair of crochet baby sandals, you’ll need about 90 yards of yarn total – 70 yds of a main color (I used khaki) and 20 yds of a contrast color (I used capri).
If you choose to substitute yarn, I recommend you stay in the worsted weight category and choose a smooth, plied yarn.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 skein (1 oz used, 70 yds), Lion Brand Jeans Colors – Main Color (Khaki shown)
- 1 skein (0.3 oz used, 20 yds), Lion Brand Jeans Colors – Contrast Color (Capri shown)
- 5 mm Crochet Hook
- (2) 1/2 inch buttons
- Stitch Marker
- Darning Needle

These easy crochet baby sandals work up in about 2 hours total. You will start by crocheting the soles, each consisting of two identical pieces that are stitched together. You will use a surface crochet technique to add a decorative (and functional) element before adding the straps.
The side straps, ankle strap and toe strap are all crocheted separately and sewn together to finish them off.
These crochet baby sandals use the invisible join method to finish off rounds. You can see instructions on how to do this in the tutorial.
- Color A (Main Color) – Khaki
- Color B (Contrast Color) – Capri
