This project is a great way to learn how to crochet soles, a skill you can use for all types of crochet baby shoes. Much of the crochet time here is spent working on the soles. You’ll also get a quick lesson in creative ways to attach elements. Another useful skill as you continue to grow in your craft.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started, a video tutorial and, of course, written instructions to walk you through these easy crochet baby sandals from start to finish.

Additional Notes


Finished Size

4″ long; 2.25″ wide; 0-3 months

Gauge

Use finished sole to measure gauge.

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.
