Crocheted Barefoot Sandals

When I first saw these barefoot sandals on Pinterest I knew I had to make a pair or two. They were just so pretty. Then I read the pattern and thought oh my, it looks complicated but as it turns out they are pretty easy to make and quick.

I am very grateful to the designer for sharing this pattern. You can find it HERE.

I’ve also included the pattern down below because I want to show you how I spread the instructions out to make it easier for me to follow. You may prefer the traditional way crochet patterns are written in which case you can go directly to the designer’s page HERE.
