Hey everyone. I was browsing the web and came upon. http://thediyshow.com/2013/07/05/the-barefoot-sandal-challenge/

I couldn't resist taking the challenge. I have always wanted to do a barefoot sandal and have just never gotten around to is so I figured why not. 

I realized I did not have any beads, shells or charms on hand, just yarn.....so one pair of crochet sandals coming up!

Not wanting a plain chain, I decided to add a heart to my sandal. After searching a bit I decided on a heart and picked the pattern I found here: http://www.skiptomylou.org/2009/01/28/crochet-heart-garland/ 

I changed it up a bit and used an I hook and Caron Spa yarn in Rosalinda that I've had in my stash since forever. (sorry its discontinued but any 3 weight yarn would work). I worked the pattern up to row 3 when I diverted a bit.

Round 1

Chain 4.  Make all of the next stitches in the first chain. 3 trc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 trc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 trc, chain 2 slip stitch

Round 2

Chain 3, in first trc make sc and hdc, in next stitch 3 hdc, in next stitch 2 hdc, sc in next four stitches, chain 1 dc in trc, chain 1, sc in next four stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, 3 hdc in next stitch, hdc and sc in next stitch, chain 3 and slip stitch in center

Round 3

Chain 3, SC around to the bottom point of the heart, chain 10 and SC back into the heart point, SC around to the last stitch, ch 3 and ss into center. Finish off. 

Re-attach yarn in the 4th sc and leave a long tail for tying, repeat on the other side. 

Voila, complete. 
Hope you go out and spread some love today!
Thanks for reading,
