FREE PATTERN: Adults Summer Hippy Sandals

Heyy! Bare with me I'm in a summery mood, and have never been able to find a pattern that I could follow for these. Also I've never written a pattern before ever, and I'm a lefty, not a righty

All you need to know is Treble Crochet (UK Terminology), and Single Crochet.

I am using a 3.5mm hook, and some bright pink crochet cotton. I believe it's Rowan 4ply Cotton.

There is no tension needed; just work with a thin DK or thick 4 ply.


Section 1: The Toe

Chain 25 in your chosen colour

Now we need to join this lovely chain of colour together.

Yarn over the hook

Poke hook through the first chain of your 25

Yarn over hook again

Pull the 2nd and 3rd loops over the 4th

Now you are left with two.

Yarn over the hook

Now pull the 1st and 2nd loops over the 3rd

Back to one

Your loop should look somewhat like this;

If not, don't panic. Go back and re-trace your steps :)

Section 2: The foot

We are going to begin doing some increasing. So set up as follows;

Chain 2

Yarn over the hook

You see where my thumbnail is? Poke your needle through the little loop that should be poking up when you press down on your join.

Yarn over the hook again.

2nd and 3rd loops over the 4th

Yarn over the hook

Now 1st and 2nd loops over the 3rd

You should have something that looks like this;

What we have done is done 2 trebles. Brilliant huh?!

Follow the same routine when completing the other trebles in this pattern :)

Row 2: Turn your work, Chain 2, then complete 2 trebles in the big hole just below your chain.
You should have something that looks like this;

As you can see, there is 3 chains. Inbetween each of those chains is where we will complete each treble.

Row 3: Turn work, Chain 2, Treble, 2 Trebles.

We now should have 4 chains.

Row 4: Turn work, (Chain 2, Treble), next stitch (Treble), next stitch (2 Trebles).

You should now have 5 chains.

Row 5: Turn work, (Chain 2, Treble), Next 2 stitches (Treble), final stitch (2 Trebles)

You should now have 6 chains.

You need to carry on this until you have 10 chains.

Just remember to only do the increases at the edge!!

Section 3: The ankle

Chain 40

Poke the hook through both loops of the last chain of the point of your triangle.

Yarn over your hook

Pull the first two loops over the 3rd.

Now cut your yarn (about 2.5 inches should be enough)

Pull the yarn through the loop and pull tight!

Nearly tada time! You need to weave in the ends using the crochet hook.

Now you are done!!

They are so quick, you can make a set for each day of the week and you only need one skein of yarn!!


  1. foarte interesant si foarte simplu, imi place si felul in care ai explicat.

  2. These are adorable! Thank you for the pattern! I've already made 3 pair in an hour, and now I plan on a pair with beading!

  3. thanks...will try it today

  4. Excellent beginner tutorial which can be easily adjusted. A sign of a great pattern. :D

  5. My Gran'ma used to make something like this out of stretchy crochet yarn and LOTS of beads for me every summer when I was a little girl.... Now, I can make them for my daughter, and her friends...

  6. You have made some really good points there.
    I checked on the net to find out more about the issue and found most people will go along with
    your views on this site.

  7. It's actually very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use world wide web for that purpose, and get the most recent information.

    Here is my website;

  8. Thank you for any other informative blog.

    Where else may just I am getting that kind of information written in such a perfect approach?

    I have a challenge that I am just now operating on, and I have been at the look out for such information.

  9. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
