Crochet in the summertime can get a bit tricky. It’s hard to work under a cozy blanket in the heat of the summer, but there seems to be few summer crochet patterns. 
Enter Baby crochet flip flops!
These sweet little baby shoes only take about an hour to make and they are classically adorable.

Oh my goodness! Aren’t baby feet the cutest!? THOSE TOES.

 Even though these crochet baby flip flops are adorable and pink, they would definitely work for a baby boy as well. And, these actually stay on quite well; my niece had them on her feet for several hours. This is so important when designing baby shoes. I have actually had to scrap several adorable patterns because they just didn’t stay on little baby feet. If they don’t stay on, what’s the point!?

Toe Strap (Make 2):

Ch 11

1. Sc in the 2nd ch from hook. Sc in next 9 chs. Turn. (10 sts)
2. Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in next 9 sts. (10 sts)
Leave a long tail.


Using either tail of your toe strap and a yarn needle, sew the strap in place, going in and out through both loops in the end of the strap and both loops on the side of the sole. You can place the strap up or down the shoe to suit yourself, but I placed mine directly in front of where the connector toe piece connects with the sole.

To attached the toe piece, put about 8” of yarn on your needle. For the right shoe, find 1 st to the left of the middle dc in the sole (for the left shoe, find 1 st to the right). Wrap the yarn over and under that dc st to give it a firm hold, (but keeping the yarn loose) going around that stitch with your needle and around the toe piece. I do it about 3 times so there are only 3 pieces of yarn between the toe.  Tie firmly on the bottom to secure it in place. (you can even secure with a dab of hot glue)

  1. Ok so I followed you youtube video did every stitch and you can’t tell the top from the bottom…its all the same size…what did I do wrong? The heal isn’t smaller its the same size as the toes. There’s no curve in…but I did exactly what you did
