Welcome to the Sweet Nothings Crochet blog for free crochet patterns with my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

SPEAR EDGED BAREFOOT SANDALS
EDGED BAREFOOT SANDALS
When I made my first barefoot sandal or foot
thong, I knew I’d come back to making more of these – It’s just been a bit
longer than I thought to get to make my next set of these cute little
creations. With this amazing pattern,
one can make a whole load of things – read on for ideas and inspiration.
Thank you for joining me as we work on this
lovely pattern together.
Materials used:Today I’ve used some locally available unbranded 4 ply knitting
cotton yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet
In general: Use any yarn with a suitable hook to make these projects.
As you are working on this pattern,
you will see that you can use this motif in several ways. You could probably make a blanket , or a bag
; or one can use it as a coaster ; or one can hang it as a tree ornament – just
bling it up a bit. All these ideas are
given on the pattern sheet.
The designer already works in a loop on one of
her last rounds, so all I did was work that a little longer in such a way that
it loops around one of the toes.
For this, just place the ornament in the centre
of your foot and see how long a loop you’d like. Work the same number of chains for both feet.
For the side ties, I re-attached my yarn to the
triangular peak closest to the ankle and worked a long chain off that. I did this twice, i.e. one tie for both sides
around the ankle/foot. You work this
chain for as long as you’d like, depending on how high up the ankle / foot you’d
like to take it. Easy enough, right?
For the ends of your tie, there are two / three
work in 3 to 4 dc in the 3rd ch from hk. So once you work a chain length that you
think is just right to go around your foot, work 3 or 4 dc in the 3rd
chain from end ;
you can pop in a bead to hold that end in
do both, I guess J
Have fun creating something oh, so cute! .. and
I hope the recipient loves it too.
