Barefoot Sandals – a Basic Irish Crochet Project

Barefoot Sandals crochet project

These barefoot sandals are the latest project in my attempt to show crocheters that you can create quick and easy items using Irish Crochet technique.

After completing my biggest Irish Crochet project to date, a cocktail dress, I have quite a bit of beautiful, high-quality yarn left over. And I really find it hard to look at this gorgeous yarn lying in a box instead of being paraded around for the world to see its beauty.

So my solution – barefoot sandals for a beach or garden party, or simply something small to cheer you up when you need it.

Like my previous basic Irish Crochet project, this one also involves only the most basic Irish Crochet motifs. These barefoot sandals are actually even easier and quicker to make than the choker collar.

Skill level: elementary. All you need to know is how to crochet Ch, SC, HDC, DC, and Sl St.

Materials I used for this barefoot sandals project:

0.6mm hook.

You can buy small size hooks HERE

Yarn:

N8 Retors d’Alsace DMC, you can get it from Casa Cenina

  Threads & Yarns – DMC – Retors d’Alsace #8

Barefoot sandals

As with most crochet projects, in this case, you can use any size of yarn and hook. But remember, if you want your sandals to look really dainty, choose a smaller size hook and yarn. I wouldn’t go with a hook above 1mm for these sandals.

Crochet Chrysanthemum Flower Brooch

Chrysanthemum Flower brooch

So I was sitting in my caravan during one of my numerous trips across the British countryside.

It was raining outside and I didn’t feel like sightseeing…

In moments like these, I am so thankful to have a hobby, and at the moment I am obsessed with crochet.

Irish crochet, to be more precise.

So I quickly whipped out my yarn and hook and one rainy afternoon later I had a new accessory for my summer outfit – a Chrysanthemum Flower Brooch.

It will look perfect with cotton dresses, shirts or jackets.

And then I discovered I had a red yarn in my crochet bag, which meant I will soon have two Chrysanthemum Flower brooch accessories for my summer outfits.

One more rainy afternoon later, ta-dah!
