Open Toe Baby Sandals – How to


Today I will do a short blog post on how to make open toe baby sandals.  Keep in mind that the look and feel of them varies greatly with the colour and embellishment choices.  So here, I will just cover the basic foundation of the open toe baby sandals. How to make Open Toe Baby Sandals How to Make Open Toe Baby Sandals First make 4 soles. 2 upper and 2 lower soles. The open toe baby sandals have double soles. For the soles, please refer to DC Baby Soles for the crochet chart. Note however that here, for the second row, instead of dc (double crochet), I have used sc (single crochet) to get the size I want. If the upper and lower soles have different colours (as here), we will first work with the upper soles. In this instance, it is the purple soles. We work from the back.  Start and make 5dc, picking up around the post of the dc stitches from the soles (i.e. 5fpdc).  Leave 15 stitches around the center curve. 11 chains, then 1fpdc (front post double crochet). Make sure it is sl

Open Front Baby Sandals – Crochet How To


Today we will do a little pictorial tutorial on how to crochet Open Front Baby Sandals. How to crochet open front baby sandals Credit I need to give credit to the inspiration for this which is an image I found on Pinterest.  However no matter where I searched, I could not find the complete instructions.  So I have filled in the blanks, so to speak.  (Click to see the Pinterest crochet image.) And I have modified it to fit the sizing I wanted. Materials For this project, I used a Clover 3/0 (2mm) and 4/0 (2.5mm) crochet hooks with corresponding yarn with appropriate thickness. This yielded me baby sandals with foot length of 9 9.5cm and 10 10.5cm; making them suitable for babies between ages of 0-6 months and 6-12 months. You will need to adjust your crochet hook and/or yarn and experiment a bit to get the correct size you are after. Soles For these baby sandals, I started off with the simple DC Baby Soles (click to see the full crochet chart article). If changing colour, cut yarn o

Crocodile Stitch – Crochet How To


There are various variations on how to crochet the Crocodile Stitch.  The following is what I like the best.  It also seems the easiest to me. How To Crocodile Stitch The Crocodile Stitch is worked over a background row, followed by the crocodile stitch, then another background row, then another crocodile stitch row. It often is the background row that will change from crocheter to crocheter.  I like the alternating V and vertical stroke background.  The crocodile stitch is made over V stitches. Let s go Crocodile Stitch You will need a multiple of 6 +1 chain stitches to begin. Row 1: as per graph shown here. Row 2 (crocodile): This row is worked around the posts of the V stitch. 5dc down, 1ch, 5dc up. Then sc or slip stitch to top of vertical post. (Sorry, I forgot to include this in the graphs.) Row 3: another background row. Note that the V and | stitches alternate from the previous background row (R1) R4 (crocodile): Same as R2 working around the posts of the V , working up a
