Finished size of the flip flop is about 7 cm (2.8 in) length
They are great as a last minute gift! It is very easy to make.
You will need about 20 minutes of your time to make one! Isn’t that great!!!
This pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms.
For this pattern you will need:
– two contrasting colors of cotton yarn I use Unitas Mirabela. You can also use some of these brands if they are available to you for my patterns Aunt Lydia’s fashion 3 size 100% Mercerized cotton or “Patons Grace” 100% mercerized cotton.
– 3 mm crochet hook
– yarn needle
– metal key ring
You will use a double strand of cotton yarn for this pattern.
That means you will hold two strands together to create one strand while crocheting.
– ch – chain
– sc – single crochet
– hdc – half double crochet
– dc – double crochet
– slst – slip stitch
First you will make two soles in contrasting colors
Work in round.
Start by making 10 chain.
Make dc in the third chain from the hook, make another 6 dc in next 6 ch, make 4 dc in last ch, make 7 dc on the other side of foundation chain, join with slst in ch 2 space from beginning.
Ch 1, make 2 sc in each next 2 dc from previous round, 1 sc in next 4 dc, 2 sc in each next 6 dc, 5 sc, 2 sc in next dc, 2 sc in slst, slst in first sc from beginning.
Ch 1, make 2 sc in each next 3 sc from previous round, 6 sc, *1 hdc in next sc, 2 hdc in next sc (repeat from * 4 more times), 1 hdc, 6 sc, 2 sc in the each next 2 sc, 2 sc in slst, slst in first sc from beginning. Fasten off.
Now you will join two soles facing them rear to rear like shown on the picture.
Make ch 1 and go around soles joining them with sc, slst in ch1 from beginning.
Here is a video that I made on how to join two soles. It is not the best quality and there is no sound but I hope you will see more clearly how to do that.
Ch 1, 9 sc, ch 8, dc in last of four dc’s of sole like shown on the picture, ch 6, 9 sc, slst in ch1 from beginning, ch 15 and again slst in ch1 from beginning (this will give you loop where you will put metal key ring. Fasten off, wave in ends and you’re done!
