Hooks & Notions:
Hook 4.50 mm (Clover)
CH – chain
SL ST – slip stitch
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
I use US Crochet stitch terminology.
Due to the nature of this pattern – the yarn and hook used is only a suggestion and any substitute may be used.
Size of finished product will vary depending on yarn and also size of hook used.
Size: child – foot Length – 6 in / 15,5 cm – slipper size – 7 1/2 in / 19 cm (the reason for the larger size is so they can be worn with socks!)
Make a magic/ring
NOTE: work thru all 3 loops of the HDC stitch – or if you prefer a more textured surface thru the ‘middle loop’
RND 1: Work 9 HDC into ring; join with a SL ST to first HDC worked;
RND 2: CH 2 (counts as 1 HDC); work 1 HDC into same ST; work 2 HDC into each ST all around (18 HDC); join with a SL ST into the 2nd CH of 2 CH.
RND 3: CH 2 (counts as 1 HDC); work 1 HDC into next 2 STS; work 2 HDC into next ST.
*Work 1 HDC into next 3 STS; work 2 HDC into next ST.
Repeat from * all around (22 HDC); join with a SL ST into 2nd CH of 2 CH
NOTE: RND 3 is your increase round – so if you are making a larger size – you will be increasing this round – 1-2 round per size increase.
RND 4: CH 2 (counts as 1 HDC); work 1 HDC into same ST; work 1 HDC into each ST all around (23 HDC); join with a SL ST into 2nd CH of 2 CH.
RND 5 – 8: CH 2 (counts as 1 HDC); work 1 HDC into each ST all around (23 HDC); join with a SL ST into 2nd CH of 2 CH.
RND 9: CH 2 (counts as 1 HDC); work 1 HDC into the next 16 STS ONLY; TURN
NOTE: the following rounds are the ‘feet’ – they are increased/or decreased to get the length required for the size you want.
RND 10 – 18: Repeat RND 9
After last round is worked; turn piece inside out – and SL ST the two ‘short’ ankle sides together.
Take note to insert your hook thru all 3 loops of the HDC stitches for a neat finish.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

CHECK OUT MISTIE’S FUNKY SANDALS!
I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
