Baby Star Barefoot Sandals
(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)
Let your precious baby be the star of the summer with a pair of star barefoot sandals! These pretty star-shaped barefoot sandals are stellar accessories for your little star’s wardrobe and much cooler than wearing baby shoes or socks on a hot summer day.
Crochet a pair of barefoot sandals for your baby using my free pattern, and they are so quick and easy. That’s my favorite part of this project. Make several pairs for babies and as shower gifts too. Create the star barefoot sandals in many colors 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
RND = round
SL ST = slip stitch

Start with a magic ring (tutorial here).
Ch 1, 10 sc in ring, tighten loop, sl st to 1st sc.
Rnd 1: [Ch 5, sl st to 2nd ch from hook, sc, hdc, dc. Skip next st in magic ring, sl st in next space.] 5 times, and end with sl st to same sc as join from round 1. Do not fasten off, proceed to toe loop instructions.
Toe Loop -
Ch 15, sl st to round 1 to form the toe loop, fasten off, weave ends.
Ch 40 (Ch 80 if you want the strap to wrap twice around ankle), sl st to back of star point 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,
