I found a very simple, easy to follow pattern for crocheting bottomless sandals online a few weeks ago and was finally able to give it a try. It was really easy and quick. The stitches are very basic- slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. I used cotton yarn, so it is safe for baby to chew on. I was able to make both “sandals” in an hour. Like I said, very easy.
The hard part came when I attempted to convince Letty to wear them on her feet. It was not happening. She was so mad! She would kick and yell and take them off faster than I could tie them. However, she was in no way adverse to wearing them as a fingerless glove instead. She loves wearing them on her hands and having something new and fun to chew on. Overall, I’d say that they were a success.
