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!
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.
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
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
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.
Hope you go out and spread some love today!
