Can you believe that we are on the downward slope to June? Spring is my absolute favorite time of year and it seems in Utah, it just skipped right past us. It’s okay, though, because summer is the perfect time to release these women’s strap flip-flops summer slippers!

Free Crochet Pattern - Women’s Strap Flip-Flops | Whistle & Ivy

For those you don’t know, I have a pattern for baby flip-flops that is quite popular, and I got so many requests to make an adult pattern. Since autumn is not the ideal time to release sandals, I decided to wait for warmer weather.  

Thank you for your patience!

I used Super Bulky yarn to make these, and I am so glad I did. Not only are they super soft and squishy, they work up quicker than my Boat Shoe Slippers and Button Strap Slippers

They also stay on very well.  I debated about putting the heel strap on or not, but I think they are more functional with it. They stay on very snug, and the thickness makes them very comfortable on the heel.

I also opted to make the sole specific for each foot. I think they look much nicer on than the round-toed sole.

  1. I don’t have any super bulky yarn, can I put several strands of the worsted weight yarn?
    If so, how many?

    1. Yes, it’s worked in continuous rounds. Does you need them longer, or longer AND wider? If the width is good but you need some length, just just start with a longer chain. If you need them longer and wider than you can work an extra round or two. Be sure to work increases around the toe and heel. It’s a different as they are shaped for the feet, but I think a round of sc should be fine.

  2. On the gauge it say 8 stitches 3 in. What stitch is that? Want to make sure I can get gauge with yarn I have. Thank you so much.

  3. I have made these flip flops in the baby sizes for people and now they want them in the adult form. I am worried that they will not fit individuals with wider feet. do you have any suggestions?? I love making the baby size versions and everyone who has bought from me really enjoys them too and mentions them to others they see. So I like your pattern a lot!!

  4. Awesome! Thanks for the pattern. I’m excited to try it… just need some more bulky yarn. Maybe I’ll use t-shirt yarn as someone mentioned. Hope you don’t mind if I link to this post on my blog?

  5. I just finished the Women’s flip flops , well at least one of them so far. I am Kemer on Ravelry if you’d like to see what I did. I made some T-Shirt yarn and used it for the bottoms and strap piece. I also took a $1 pair of flip flops cut off the strap and sewed it to the bottom of my flip flops . Thank you so much for the pattern and your very helpful video on the baby flip flops . It really made it so easy to do my flip flops !

  6. I have tried to do these three times and cannot figure out the body part! The chains are really long and the back strap hangs off to one side….so frustrated!
    Love the thong style just can’t get body part to work

      1. I watched your utube on the baby version, I think i understand better now. Written direction seem confusing??
        Thank you

      1. Debby did you say those flip flops are a size 11? If so would you mind sending me the changes you made for that size? I’m still learning and I don’t think i can figure out how to increase the size yet, im still trying to learn how to read patterns.
        And Bethany thanks so much for the patterns and videos, I appreciate the videos everyone puts out

  7. On round 3 of size 7 pattern, do you mean 3 hdc in the stitch or am I misunderstanding? So far I am loving the pattern and have no issues. Just not sure how to proceed. Thank you!

      1. Thank you, Bethany! After I asked the question, went back and looked at the pattern and had the “duh” moment. Finished them and gave them to the Granddaughter. She loved them! Thank you again.

  8. It’s so funny that you put this out because I have made quite a few pair of the baby flip flops and people always tell me “Oh I wish those came in my size!” Now they do! So I’m going to make a few pair for my friends. I can’t make my own, however, because my foot is a size 11! (Yes, cry for me now. Cute shoes DO NOT come in my size.) Do you think you could just tell me which part of the pattern to change so I can make them in Sasquatch size? Thank you!

    1. Oh that’s awesome! Yes! You can make the sole longer by adding extra stitches along the side, and leaving the toe and heel the same. It’s about 1 extra ch for each size up on the foundation. If you need it wider, you could work the size 9, and work one extra round on the sole, making it longer and wider. (make sure to work the increases on the toe and heel). I hope that helps!

  9. Idk if its just me, but when I download any of your PDF patterns, the logo in the background of each page is solid (instead of being transparent like a watermark) and it obscures the written pattern on the majority of the page. Is it just me or does anyone else have the same issue?

  10. These are wonderful!! I especially like that they have a back strap! Just perfect. Thank you!!! I would like to make them for a good friend who will soon be visiting from Germany!
