FLIP FLOP Key chain


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 key chain is designed with much love and positive energy and there are no advertisements on this page so you can follow the pattern without distraction!
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.
Stitches used:

–       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.

1st round:

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.


2nd round:

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.


3rd round:

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.

  1. HI love the flip flop key chain pattern but as a beginner am having difficulty following written pattern do you have a video tutorial for this particular pattern

  2. I don’t understand what to do when it says , 7 double crochets on other side of foundation chain. And what size hook? Help please! These are very cute and I love flip flops. Thank you in advance.

    1. I used 3mm crochet hook for these flip flops. You start with 7 dc on one side of the starting chain and than when you make 4 dc in last chain, make another 7 dc on the other side of starting chain (opposite of the first 7 dc that you made at the beginning of this row. Thank you! 🙂
