Baby Heart Barefoot Sandals
(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)
What could be cuter than your baby sporting some barefoot heart sandals this summer? These adorable heart-shaped barefoot sandals are the perfect accessories for your little angel’s wardrobe and much cooler than wearing baby shoes or socks on a hot summer outing. Plus, they are super adorable!
You can crochet a pair of barefoot sandals for your baby using this free pattern, quick and easy. That’s my favorite part of this pattern. I have made several pairs for friends’ babies and as shower gifts too. Crochet them in any color with just about any yarn (although Caron Simply Soft is a nice soft yarn to start with for delicate baby feet).
Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.
Size: Newborn - 12 months
Skill Level: Easy
Materials: Caron Simply Soft, any color
Hook size: G/4.25mm
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
HDC = half double crochet
DC = double crochet
MR = magic ring/loop (tutorial)
RND = round
SL ST = slip stitch
Gauge: not needed
Notes: This pattern has been updated/edited to make the heart portion a little easier to follow and create. I've also created a YouTube video to go along with the changes in hopes that it will also be an aide to creating the pattern. (The YouTube video is for the adult pair, and the beginning heart is the same on both patterns.)

Instructions: (Make two)
Start with a MR, ch 2, dc 3, hdc 3, dc, ch 15. Sl st to first chain to form toe loop. Hdc 3, dc 3, ch 2, sl st to magic ring. Pull magic ring tight.
Break yarn, weave ends.
Ch 40 (Ch 80 if you want the strap to wrap twice around ankle), sl st to back of heart opposite of the toe loop. Ch 40 more (Ch 80 if you want the strap to wrap twice around ankle). Finish off. This forms the ankle straps. (See image.)
Rock the hook,
