    I just made a pair of these and they are sooooo cute! Thanks for the pattern, you did a great job!

    What does rs mean after I get done fastening off the heel … Im confused and I know it must be something simple :/

    • Naomi

      Hi Rachel, Sorry RS = Right Side of the work.
      In this case after fastening off the sole, to keep the right side facing you as start the heel, you need to count the 9 stitches clockwise from your last slip stitch.
      Does that help?


  3. I just love these baby sandals and can’t wait to make them! I would love to feature them on my blog. Would it be okay if I used your photo of them? I know my readers will love this pattern and want to make them too!

  4. EJ-USA

    These are soooo cute! I always do a gauge before I begin a project. Can you supply the gauge you had using the hook and the yarn? How many dc per inch? Thanks so much.

    • Naomi

      Hi EJ,
      I never use gauges or tension squares although I probably should! I have just worked one for you though and with my hook and yarn its 6dc per inch. Hope thats useful ๐Ÿ™‚

        • EJ-USA

          Guage was useful. Instead of Aran, I used Baby Sport and the E Hook. All worked out very nicely. I took some photos and will post to my Pinterest with a link back to you. Thank you for posting very well written directions. And I’m not really a crocheter; I generally do doilies with size 30 thread and tiny steel hooks. However, I’m an avid knitter (for about 60 years). Congratulations on your first attempt of writing directions. Great job!

          • Naomi

            Hi Brandy, I’m not sure why they are coming out too big for you. Are you translating the stitches from UK to US terminology? If you are reading teh pattern as though it written in US terms they will be bigger. xx

  5. Hello! I came across this pattern just love it! I am the editor of AllFreeCrochet.com and would love to feature your tutorial on my site with full credit to you.

  6. Corrine

    Hi Naomi,
    I just wanted to say thank you for the pattern, Im new to crochet, But thought these were to cute to pass up. I am going to attempt to make these……..I have made 3 pairs of booties this past week usinga u-tube tutorial…….they came out great.I just now posted them to Facebook…….
    thanks again…..

    • Naomi

      Hi Corrine,
      I hope my pattern works ok for you, feel free to ask any questions if you get stuck and I’ll do my best to help you out ๐Ÿ™‚
      When you’ve finished them feel free to share your pictures of them on Lovely Little Life’s facebook page, I’d love to see how they turn out ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Katie

    This pattern is so cute! Can’t wait to make them for my soon to be little grand-daughter! Thank you for sharing!

  8. Tess

    I’m a bit stuck on round 2 ๐Ÿ™
    My counts are perfect fornround one. I ss in the first DC and did the 2TR at the base. I counted the directions forward and I’m somehow short by 4 stitches ๐Ÿ™

    • Naomi

      Hi Tess,
      After the ss to close round 1, are you chaining 3 before the 2tr at the base of the ss? Although missing this shouldn’t cause you to be four stitches short, if your counting is correct in round one.
      I will try to create a photo tutorial for you, it’s just finding the time, I have quite a demanding little 6 month old!

  9. Tess

    If you could post a photo of each round beginning…that would help SO much. I’m a veteran Hooker but have not dine anything intricate in over 20 years. I just found out km pregnant with number five at 38 ๐Ÿ™‚ fornskme reason I’m compelled to hook lmao. And I’m a photographer so ive been sweeping up the girlee things for props. I have three girls…a son and I’m POSITIVE with my gut this one is a boy. Will be a blessing. We list our sweet angel in a water accident when he was five years old. ๐Ÿ™
    Four years ago last week. This has been keeping my mind busy ans I must thank you firnsuch nice free patterns to work. (They ALL used to be free). I paid for a chunky hat pattern after no luck findings a free one. $4.99 for a half page instructions for magic ring and about 12 rounds of HDC!! ๐Ÿ™ would have gladly paid $1 or so but $5? And it only included a newbirn size!!!!

  10. These are so cute! Can’t wait to make a pair. I pinned it to my Pinterest board, What’s Knot to Love! Hope it brings you many viewers! thx

  11. Tess

    I finally realized inwas NOT converting to US stitches lol. Am working great AND have realized the other way makesna bigger shoe! Win win! Thanks

      • Tess

        Weeelll….lol. for woke reason my “base” sole is longer and skinny? A chubby baby foot will spill over. Is there another point that will add to this? I thought of just repeating ur directions a second row but I’m at about 6 month size in length just eyeballing it. Possibly 9months BUT its skinny ๐Ÿ™
        I DO have a question. You didn’t mention for the second Sandor that it will have to be flipped? I have a perfect sole corns left foot. Flipper over makes it a right foot based on how the shape came out. I wasn’t familiar with the weight yarn u used so I chose a smaller sport weight 100% cotten that has a flat feeling when stitched that Literally seems PERFECT for soles of a shoe (not busy toddlers but you kwim)
        I switched projects so I could come back with fresh eyes. Will let u know what i end up with. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Naomi

          I’m sorry that you are having such trouble with these! The second sandal shouldn’t have to be flipped, although the sandal should widen at the toe end it shouldn’t lean in either direction. As for being skinny I’m not sure why this is, unless you have used a significantly different weight of yarn to me which might cause a problem possibly?
          I am going to try and take some pictures this week but in the mean time some other lovely commenters have posted photos of their completed sandals maybe take a look at those too?

  12. How would I make this pattern bigger for my 7 month old daughter? I would probably need to make them 9 month to almost 12 month so they would fit her for a while. Any ideas on how to adjust the pattern?

    Thank you for the cute pattern! I’m excited to make a pair for my daughter!

    • Naomi

      Hi Holli, I haven’t tried this myself yet but some other readers have found that by scaling the stitches up a step it produces a slightly bigger sandal and it might be enough to be a 9-12month size? I can’t say for sure though as I’ve not personally tested it and I’m not sure what size a 9-12month would really be… my little girl is only just 6 months and she has small feet like her mummy!
      If you wanted to try though it would just mean reading my pattern as it is but thinking in terms of US terminology. I’d love to hear how it goes if you do try! xxx

  13. Tess

    Okay. success up to the heel. Is it NORMAL for the right side (I’m thinking it will be the buckle side to be two (looks like two maybe three) stitches shorter than the other side or are they supposed to be equal?
    lovely surprise with the scallop in back of the heel!!!

  14. Lisbeth


    I came across this site and i think the baby pattern is so cute. I want to start knitting so I would like to see if anyone has info for beginners. Also is it the same hook size for US?

  15. Bridget

    Soooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!!! I will be trying out your pattern soon, for my granddaughter. I will also see if I can make a pair for myself.

  16. Sarah-Ashley

    I just finished both of them! I kept having one extra space at the end of R2. It called for *1tr in next 9 sts* so i just made it 10 because if i didn’t I would be off one space for R3! My sister had the exact same problem. i reworked it 3 times but still had the problem. But other then that I LOVE this pattern and would love use the sole and heel again to make a variation of a sandal if you don’t mind. They turned out amazing and I am so glad we found this pattern. Thank you so very much for making this pattern!

  17. Veronica

    I am planning on making these sandals. I have a craft business and would like to ask your permission to sell the finished product.

    • Naomi

      Hi Veronica, I am quite happy for you to sell the finished sandals, I only ask that design credit is given. Thankyou!

  18. R

    A friend saw these and asked me to make her daughter a pair because she doesn’t crochet. Can’t wait to see what they look like.

  19. Joni

    I just sent this pattern to my sister i saw them this morning and had to send her a picture she loved them and then i found your pattern. I will let you know how she does.


  20. Hi,

    I love these shoes, and can’t wait to make them. But, I am on round 1 at the working back part, and I am confused. Am I supposed to turn and work on the bottom in the loop from my initial chain?


    • Naomi

      Hi Gaby,

      This just means you are turning the work as if continuing around an oval shape (a very long skinny oval!) So you are working 2htr in the same chain you have already worked 2htr in but from the other side, effectively creating a mirror image. This first round creates the centre of the sole.

      I hope this has made it a bit clearer for you!

  21. Karen

    Hello! These are very cute! I want to make them for my 6 week old. I am no crochet-er! I really only use crochet to embellish my knitting, so I don’t know how to fudge the math to get a different size. Would using sport weight cotton and a smaller hook do the trick? (I have not measured my babe’s foot yet, as she is sleeping)

    • Naomi

      Hi Karen, Using a smaller hook and lighter weight yarn would certainly yield a smaller sized sandal but whether it would be the right size for your little one I can’t say! Sorry for not being more help! xx

  22. Melanee Bingham

    love the pattern. Can hardly wait to try it. I’m in the US and cannot figure out what size hook to us. Could you help me with that. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Joann

    Hello Naomi!
    This pattern is very adorable. I’m working on a pair as we speak. I had a quick question and suggestion. On R2, when doing the ** instruction, we are to do it 3 more times, which would equal a total of 4 total, right (I realize how ridiculous this sounds now, since obviously 3+1 is 4)?
    Also, I’ve found it very helpful to have a total stitch count at the end of each instruction, just so that I know I have the right amount of stitches. I think this is a crutch of mine, but just wanted to throw it out there!!

    Thanks so much for the pattern!

    • Naomi

      Hi Joann,

      Yes it is 4 times on total ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you are right about having total stitch counts on each round and I think in the future I will try to include this in any patterns I write! xx

  24. Ashley

    Hi, I am a complete newbie to crocheting. I have played around and learned a lot but this is my first real attempt at making something real! I am having trouble on the first round…where it says to work along the other side of the chains…I have 14 chains but this part of the pattern “2htr in next ch, 1htr in next 5ch, 1dc in each of the next 5ch, 2dc in last ch, join with ss in top of first dc” only goes back into 12 chains leaving 2 left over. I know I must be missing something here.

    • Naomi

      Hi Ashley,

      So the very first chain actually acts as the first stitch as you work the first 2dc into the 2nd ch from the hook, which means you really only have 13 chains to work into. The 3htr into the last ch is chain 13 so you discount that as the “2htr in next ch” goes into chain 12 working back along the other side and creates a mirror image of the stitches already worked into those 12 chains. You then ss into the top of the first st. There shouldn’t be anything left over.
      I hope that makes some kind of sense! If you are still unsure do ask again and I’ll do my best to help!


  25. Autumn

    I made a pair of these for my 2 and a half year old. I crocheted a sole for them out of hemp twine, so she could wear them outside. Awesome pattern, thank you so much! Oh, and thanks for the translation of terminology, I didn’t know there was a difference!

    • Wilda

      Autumn, can you share how you increased stitches and where to make them for a larger size? I need to make them for a one year old. Thank you for your help!

  26. indie

    I love this pattern I’m making them for my 1st grand but I don’t understand what the* stands for. Please help.

  27. Sharon

    Would anyone make me a pair? I have a baby shower August 25th and I do not
    know how to do this…… if anyone will please email me and let me know ..I love these and no one else would have anything like this.

    thanks so much.

      • Naomi

        Hi Wilda, I do now sell pairs of baby sandals for 0-6 month olds but I have not patterned for bigger sizes. I have had feedback from others that a bigger hook and yarn produces a bigger size but I haven’t tried this for myself so cannot vouch for the outcome.

  28. Ashley

    I absolutely love these, but there is no way in the world I would ever be able to make these. Is there any way I could buy a pair for a 6-9 month old baby girl?! If so please let me know! Thanks so much,

  29. Ashley

    I just made a pair of these using some Caron Simply Soft yarn and just did them all one color, still turned out super cute! Thanks for sharing for free and for the easy to follow directions.

  30. alisa wilcox


    I am having trouble on R3 of the sole: ” 3ch, 1tr in base of ss, 1tr in next 20 sts, 2tr in next st, 1tr in next st, 2tr in next st, 1tr in next st, 2tr in next st, 1tr in next 16sts, 2tr in last st, join with ss in top of first ch-3.” After I stitch the 16sts, I still have 4 left sts left before joining the ss in the top of the first ch 3. Should it be 20sts like the first side? R2 worked perfectly, so I cannot figure out what I did incorrectly.

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    • Naomi

      Hi Alisa,

      I’m sorry for the slowness in replying. I don’t know why you have so many stitches over I’m afraid. I have had a few people with one or two stitches to spare but not 4! I would imagine that using 20 sts is the right thing to do. I went over this pattern a number of times to catch errors before publishing it but it would seem perhaps I have overlooked this somehow! I will go over it again and correct it if needs be. Sorry for any confusion!

      Naomi x

      • Wendy

        Hi Naomi and Alisa,
        I’ve just hit the exact same problem!! I THINK it’s because of the R2 instructions (see Joann , July 18th above) You said that the ** is 4 times TOTAL, but it reads as ” 4 more times”. This gives me the extra 4 stitches! ๐Ÿ™‚ It should therefore say ‘ repeat between ** 3 more times.
        Do you think this might be the answer?
        I’m just like Joann in relying on the stitch count at the end of the rows ( being a newbie and not trusting myself!)
        This pattern is lovely – thank you SO much for sharing it and helping us newbies have a ‘try’ at the hobby before we spend a fortune on patterns we can’t use. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Wendy xxx

        • Wendy

          Hello again Naomi,
          I ripped the whole lot and started again, omitting the word ‘more’ from the ** repeat in R3 & R3. It worked!! ( happy dance ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Not only that, but it solved the curving problem that both Tess (above) and myself had also.
          Sarah-Ashley above pointed out the R2 9sts issue. I changed that too and the count was spot on!
          I’m feeling chuffed that I’ve finally hit a point where I can problem solve a pattern now whereas a few weeks ago said pattern made my eyes boggle!
          The finished result I am DELIGHTED with! Thanks again
          Wendy xxxx

          • Naomi

            Hi Wendy, I’m so glad you’ve worked it out ok! I’m currently writing up a photo tutorial for this pattern with the improvements you’ve already discovered and probably a few more tweaks and I’m including stitch counts for each round this time. Pattern writing is a steep learning curve! If you stop by over the weekend the new tutorial should be up! Thanks for your support and feedback ๐Ÿ™‚ Naomi xx

  31. Katie

    I just made these for a friend’s new baby and the instructions are so easy to follow. They turned out sooooo cute! Thank you for sharing this adorable pattern!

  32. Jess

    These are so adorable!!! I don’t have a 3.5mm hook yet (my smallest is a 5.0), and I so wanted to make these… When I started they were SO large (I think because of the hook) they actually would have been quite cute for a toddler… but not what I wanted. So I kind of melded them with another pattern for baby boots that I’ve used successfully before (used the sole of that pattern, then kind of winged it for the rest of the directions to work). Thankfully they turned out fantastic! I can’t wait to get the correct hook and try them properly!

    • Naomi

      It’s probably best to google ‘crochet magic circle’ as there are lots of really good tutorials out there. It is just a way of crocheting into a loop that can be pulled closed tightly as opposed to using a circle of chains that always leaves a little hole in the centre. x

  33. Rebecca


    Finally after days of searching pinterest and other websites for baby crochet sandal patterns, I found you! These are just adorable and I hope they will turn out great..I am making crocheted baby sandals and booties for newborn to 3 months.. so I hope these will be the perfect size..
    It is so nice to find someone who shares their patterns without charging for them. Thank you so much for sharing your creative, beautiful pattern and for being so helpful in answering questions…
    If you have any other baby bootie or sandal patterns I would love to see them.

    Thank you

    • Naomi

      Hi Rebecca,

      Thankyou for your lovely comment ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope they work up well for you.

      I don’t have any other patterns for baby booties at the moment but I’m working on an idea for some baby shoes which will hopefully make their way on to my blog at some point!

      Naomi xx

  34. Hello and thanks a lot for the pattern!!! I want to make these for my niece who is 1 year old and I wanted to ask (because I am a beginner) what should I do if I want to make them bigger? Chain more than 14? Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Naomi

      Hi, a bigger size is a popular request today! I’m afraid I haven’t properly worked out the pattern to up the size but given that the difference between 0-3 months and 6-12months is a couple of cm, I would suggest that even just using a thicker yarn and slightly bigger hook would give the desired size.
      Alternatively chaining perhaps 16 to start and then in R1 increasing to 1dc in 7sts instead of 5sts, in R2 1tr in next 11 sts instead of 9, etc..
      I have had some people work the pattern as if its written in US terms and this would certainly yield a larger sandal but I’ve not tried this myself and suspect it would be a slightly looser fabric for a sole, which doesn’t matter unless they are walking I guess?
      I hope this helps in some way, sorry I can’t be more specific or certain! xx

  35. Lilithia


    I fell in love with these sandals…but I want to make them a bigger size…how can I make them bigger??what sould I do??

    thx in advanced for replying ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Naomi

      Hi there,

      I’ve just replied to the comment above yours who had a similar request so I thought I would just direct you to my above answer ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope it helps a little xxx

    • Naomi

      Hi Edith,
      I’m sorry they are coming out too big, the only things I can think of if you are using the correct terminology is that perhaps you are using a thicker yarn or it could be that I crochet quite tightly and we are working at different tensions guages. Gaye the commenter below has had the same problem and she has dropped a few stitches in the side of the soles to compensate or perhaps you could try using a slightly smaller hook?
      I hope you manage to get them the right size! xx

  36. Gaye


    Love your pattern it is gorgeous. Please can you tell me what a magic circle is – the start of the flower motif ? Mine also are coming out big so have used fewer stitches in the sides of the soles (:


    • Naomi

      Hi Gaye,
      I’m sorry they are coming out too big I think perhaps I crochet quite tightly. I’m glad you managed to scale them down though ๐Ÿ™‚ A magic circle is also known as an adjustable ring, it is a way of closing what would otherwise be a hole in the centre of the motif. There is a photo tutorial here that shows you how to start ๐Ÿ™‚ http://www.crochetme.com/forums/t/28917.aspx

  37. bia

    lovely pair u just made…i just went through ur blog last night .. n couldn’t resist to make one of these n it goes pretty well .. love your work… really appreciated.. ๐Ÿ™‚ stay blessed!

  38. Chelle

    Wish you had a picture of the heel.. It would help since that’s where I’m stuck & I just kept at 17sts period. I think there’s a few things missing in the pattern. Like in the sole part as well.. I have come up different in the sole. Always short one st than what is in the sole pattern.. Can you help me..

  39. Kelly

    These are adorable! Would you be willing to make some a pair to sell? Needless to say I do not know how to do this but I sure wish I did. Love them ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Maria

    I got through sole and heel but I am confused when the next step of adding second color comes in R7. Do I join yarn at the last scallop?

  41. This is pretty awesome for your first pattern! I followed it fairly easily, a few confusing parts which would be helped much by pictures. I’ve made one sandal so far, and I’ve posted it on my brand new blog, with credit of course! I was wondering if I would be able to sell the finished product?

      • Shayla

        wow… thanks, I am going to use this pattern and sell them then! ๐Ÿ™‚ awesome! mine are adorable as all get out!!!

  42. Cazz

    My little baby is wearing the 9-12 mo. How much should I add and where exactly? I’m kinda new at this… Thanks!

  43. Cheri

    I LOVE your baby sandal pattern! Thanks for sharing it!! I am, however, a bit confused as to where to join the straps – got the sole and heel done and tried looking at the picture for exact placement of the straps, but the picture doesn’t show it. Any help you can give would be appreciated! Thanks again for sharing this free pattern!

    • Naomi

      Hi Cheri,
      Do you mean the ankle straps? I simply stitched the end of the strap about half a cm in from the edge of the heel, it sits on the edge of the first little shell stitch. It is really just your best judgement! I hope that helps a bit! xx

  44. Renate van Kesteren

    Thank you for sharing this pattern. With just a babygirl born at one of our friends it’s lovely to make them. Ik think they wille love it. Best regards from Holland, Renate van Kesteren.

    Thank you so much for this adorable pattern! It was the first actual pattern I have been able to understand. It was so easy! Thanks again!

  47. Sharon

    Thank you so much for this adorable pattern. My daughter sent me a picture of these and I was so excited when I found the pattern. I plan to make them soon.

  48. michele

    I saw these and I am in Awe, that I actually found your page…These are the best thing I have seen in a long time. Thank-you, for sharing your knowledge. ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. linden

    I just made one of these and it seems to have come out quite large. It can almost fit my 2 year old =/ any idea what i may have done wrong?

    • Naomi

      Hi Linden, Sorry you are having trouble. If the hook size and yarn weight are as listed in the pattern the only thing I can think of is perhaps you crochet quite loosely, which would yield a slightly bigger sandal, whereas I tend to crochet quite tightly.

  50. Hi there!! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing this lovely pattern…… I got this picture from a FB friend who found it on Pinterest or something like that, and she begged me to make a pair of these for her daughter. I was wondering how in the world I was going to be able to figure out the pattern and just after a quick search online I found it!! I was sooo happy! And so is my friend now that she got her sandals. I made another pair for another friend (she loved it too!) and am currently working on a 3rd pair. They are really lovely and not very many people share their patterns for free… so just wanted to thank you and show you mine (this pair is very similar to yours, the others are in different colors).

    • Naomi

      Hi Laura, I’m so glad you like the pattern and they turned out so beautifully! Thank you for sharing your pictures ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

  51. Judy

    R2: 3ch, 2tr in base of ss, 1tr in next st, 2tr in next st, 1tr in next 9 sts, *3tr in next st, 1tr in next st*; repeat between ** 4 more times, 1tr in next 9 sts, 2tr in next st, join with ss in top of first ch-3.

    seems like there should be another tr between the last 2tr and the joining with a ss – I have an open stitch and it would balance the other side of the heel. I guess I’ll see how it goes in future rounds! Thanks for posting this free pattern – they are so cute!

  52. LInda

    I so want to make these but I really don’t know where to begin. I have tried but im so lost im a beginner and I tried to look up the stitches on you tube but everyone goes so fast I loose myself I get frustrated and give up is there any advice you can give me thank you

  53. Eva

    lol just decoded your pattern into U>S> wording and I love it. Already had two people begging for me to make them for their girls. Thanks for your pattern!!

  54. Camille

    Seeing these adorable little shoes is what inspired me to start crocheting in the first place.. it is the only reason I learned LOL. After practicing on some granny squares and looking up a couple you tube videos I was able to make these shoes for my little girl who will be born soon ๐Ÿ˜€ They turned out SOOOO perfect and cute! Thank you so much for the pattern! ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Hi Naomi,
    thank you for the beautiful pattern. I have started a crochet club in memory of my sister Teal Denise Reynolds. she passed away from Breast cnacer. She loved to crochet and would donate to to the nursey at the hospital where she lived at in Belmont , NH to make sure every newborn had an outfit to wear home from the hospital. So i decided to start this club to send items up to the hospital in her memory. i am always looking for new and easy patterns and loved your. I will keep you updated on our progress. Our goal is to send at least 10 items there each month.
    Keep up the good work.

  56. Luciana

    Ola, amei esta sandalia e faรงo sapatinhos para vender, uma amiga minha viu esta foto e quer uma mas nรฃo estou conseguindo entender a receita, vc nรฃo teria um grafico desenhado ou a traduรงรฃo dos pontos para o portugues? Ficaria muito grata.

      Hi Jia, Thankyou! I’m so glad I’ve inspired you to take up crochet, it’s wonderful isn’t it ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  58. Debbie

    I am going to make a pair for my brand new neice.. Thank you so much they are so adorable… ๐Ÿ™‚

  59. Where do you start the second color on the heel position, at the top or bottom? I’m a little new to this, it’s hard to tell from the picture, it looks like it is at the top of the heel in one picture, and around the edge in anoyher.

    • Naomi

      Hi Brenda,
      The second colour runs around the very top edge of the heel, not around the sole. Hope that helps! xx

    • Wendy

      Oh yes, please make a youtube video. I had to fudge a few things because I’m a knitter, not a crocheter. I’m quite certain I’d do better with a video. For my practice sandal, it looks like it could fit a 4 year old ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I can’t believe how quick these crochet up!

  60. Juanita

    These are the cutest little sandals, I am going to make so many as I have friends that have just had babies. I am also going to make them in brown and put a car button on them for a boy. thank you so much. It is so sad that people will do anything for a buck. I promise you this I will not re-post or try to sell your pattern. again thank you

  61. Amanda

    Thank you so much for this pattern! This was my first pair of sandals and my second pattern ever and it was super easy to follow!!! SN: My sandals turned out to be a size 5/6 and I used a size 4 worsted yarn with a 3.75mm hook.

  62. dwisoca

    I really……really loved your pattern and i already one for a gift and since a lot of my friends requested it so i intended to sell it. it’s that ok……… thanks alot

  63. Sue

    How gorgeous are these. I sat and made one in scrap yarn last night. Today I went to my local wool shop and bought lime green and tango orange cotton, I’m going to make my granddaughter, Emily a pair for her holidays in a few weeks time. Could they be made any larger just in case?!…….

  64. Paula White

    Thank you sooo much for this gorgeous pattern!! i spotted these on pinterest and loved them and had to make them!! Very talented lady! xx

  65. Carrie

    Cute, Cute, Cute…Thank-you so much for sharing the pattern!! I can’t wait to make them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Toni

    I was wondering if i could post ur pic to my facebook page i come frome a family where everyone crochets and is it ok to pass along ur link as well?

    • Naomi

      Hi Toni, you are of course welcome to pass along a link to my site but I prefer my photos not to be used by others, I’ve been having some problems in this area. Thanks for your understanding ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

  67. So I made these sandals…they came out too big.. not sure if my stitch was too loose… I tried to take the entire pattern and translate it lol to American…. before I made them… still came out a bit big. I think it was my stitch or needle size… Anyhow my website has the link to the sandals that I made… I put a button… I could not figure out the bobble.

  68. Julia

    My daughters is 8 months and her shoe size is sometimes between 0-3 to 3-6. When I made the sole part for the pattern, I have a whole inch on the sole that is to big for her foot. I’m not really sure what to do because her foot is so small ๐Ÿ™
    Should I continue with the pattern or should I just try to use a smaller hook size to shrink the pattern down?

    • Julia

      Okay so I am using a 3.25 sized hook and that got me to 11 cm…… not really sure why my other one was turning out so big because I was using the 3.55 sized hook you recommended but I figured it out ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Naomi

        Hi Julia,

        I’m sorry you’ve been having some problems, I use a 3.5mm hook and that gives me an 11cm sandal. It could be the yarn weight is different or that your tension when you crochet is considerably looser than mine. I’m glad you’ve figured it out though! ๐Ÿ™‚

  69. Madeline

    Hi Naomi, really love this pattern, I’m going to attempt to make them for my baby girl. Just one question on R1 when you say “Working back along the other side of the chains” after the 3 htr on the last 2 CH, what do you mean? If I sound ignorant it’s because I’m new to crocheting. I’m not sure if you mean I need to turn my work or what exactly. Sorry… Thanks again!

  70. Cassie

    Hi! I made these today and they are adorable! However, mine were huge. I don’t have a daughter, but I used my son as my model, and they were way too big on him. I wonder why?

  71. marj

    I made my first pair using your pattern and its owesome nd cute for my newborn and im planning to make more pair in diff. Color thanks to you.

  72. Nguyet Dang

    At last, I found it. I’m a beginner in crochet and I’ve been looking for this pattern since I had seen the photo of your cute sandals. I saw it on some other sites where they sell the pattern. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    • Naomi

      Thankyou! I would be very interested in the links to sites selling my pattern if you could pass them on. Thanks xxx

  73. swathi

    would be great if u can tell how many stitches should be there at the end of each row. ๐Ÿ™‚

  74. Ellen M

    Hi there,

    R1: Using first yarn make a magic circle, 2ch, 6dc into magic circle.

    6dc into first chain?

    Thank you!

  75. Ellen M

    Hello again,

    Never mind. I got it! (The Magic Ring …) Love that name.

    Sandals coming along!

  76. Dianna

    Hi, My name is Dianna

    I have two girls ones three, and the others is 17 months. How can I make them both a pair of these sandles? How do you add to the length of the sandels?
    Thank you!
    – Dianna.

  77. Adri

    I want to make some of these for my ten month old, any suggestions on how to increase the size of these without changing the proportions/shape?

  78. Priscilla Fries

    I love these. I would love to knit some up for our layette program. Can I print them ? How?

    • Naomi

      Hi Priscilla, you can print my pattern for personal use. I don’t have a print function so you will need to copy & paste into a word processor to print it out. Thanks, Naomi ๐Ÿ™‚

  79. Karen

    so cute! I love that these sandals do not go between baby’s toes and rub that delicate skin. Can’t wait to get started ๐Ÿ™‚

  80. Marissa

    Hello. I’m a little confused as to what you mean by when you were listing the stitches it says “Double crochet (single crochet)

    • Naomi

      Hi Marissa, It is the same stitch called different things in the UK & USA. I write in UK terms where there is no such thing as a single crochet it is called a double crochet, so if you use USA terms everywhere my pattern refers to double crochet (dc) you need a single crochet (sc). Does that help? x

  81. Dina

    I am still a beginner, so this pattern was a little difficult but I did it! It would just have been a little easier to have pictures along the way ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. Ashley

    Hi Naomi! I’m a beginner and there are a few spots i am having some trouble with and the are basics. is there a website that has good instructions on fastening off, sewing, finishing a row, and attaching. I do great with the beginning of each round and the middle is fine is just the trans. between each part i am having trouble with that is throwing me off a little.

  83. Maria

    Thank you for the pattern. It is so cute. I am working on a pair for my newest granddaughter. My question is: On row 7 at the point of, *1 dc in next 2 sts, ss in next st*. Should the dc’s be stitched into the back loops of the sts?
    I looked at your pictures and that is what it looks like. I did it according to the pattern and it did not look the same. So I stitched in the back loops and it does look like the picture. And it makes the tr stitches pop better.
    Again thank you.

    • Naomi

      Hi Maria, I’m glad you like the pattern! I do actually stitch through both loops as you would normally and that’s what I have done in the photos too but if you think it looks better just using the back loops then definitely do that! ๐Ÿ™‚

  84. mara

    The sandals are so beautiful, wish I knew how to crochet. I can make a chain, but that’s about it.

  85. debbi

    Hi, I am having a small problem with making the flowers. I am not quite sure what a magic circle is.Can you explain.

  86. Eva

    I would LOVE to purchase a pair of these from you – would you send me the info as to how to order them online?

    thanks – you do an outstanding job- these are just too adorable!โ™ฅโ™ฅMy nephew is going to have his first child in August (girl!!!) and I would love to give he and his wife this precious pair of sandals.


  87. Pam Taylor

    I would love to purchase a pair of these. I have a granddaughter coming in a week or so…Can i please buy a pair?

  88. Terri

    These are so adorable. I am saving the pattern so the next time I’m blessed with a granddaughter.

  89. Brian

    I have two new baby nieces and would be interested in purchasing two pairs of the sandals if possible. My sisters would love them….



  90. bharathi mahesh

    Hi Naomi, I’m a beginner … My 1st project was a poncho for my one year old n now want 2 make this lovely sandals for her. But this is my 1st… and d size is for 0-6months, How do I do d same for my daughter?

    • Naomi

      Hi Bharathi, I haven’t written a pattern for a 1 year old size yet I’m afraid, I have concerns over how much support they would offer a new walker! Sorry! xx

  91. Deb

    T would love to buy a couple of pairs, please e mail me if this can be done by aug 6th
    Thank you

  92. Hi there

    I would like to ask your permission to do a Danish translation of your pattern with full credit ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kind regards
    Marianne Topping

    • Naomi

      Hi Marianne,

      You are welcome to do a Danish translation as long as the pattern and any photos are all properly credited and linked back here. Thankyou for asking ๐Ÿ™‚
      Naomi xx

  93. Rachel Solis

    Do you have the pattern for a larger size? My niece is 10 months old and I would love to make these for her. She has Krabbe disease and does not walk or crawl so I wanted to make something soft for her feet. Thank you.

    • Naomi

      Hi Rachel, I don’t have a changed pattern for bigger sizes at the moment sorry. All I can tell you is that when I use a bigger hook (a 4mm) it gives me a sandal for approx. 6-9months, it is possible these might fit a 10 month old too but past that point I think the dimensions need to change slightly and I haven’t written this out yet!

  94. Asther Uy

    Hello Naomi,

    My sister-in-law showed me the picture of this sandals and said it’s so cute only she don’t have a baby. To my surprise I found the pattern and it’s for free! Now she needs to have a baby coz I can definitely make this for her.


  95. madison

    Are these for 6 month old babies. Cause I’m making the soles for them and they look a little on the big side.

      • Naomi

        Hi Madison,
        They are sized approx for 6 month olds yes (11cm). However we all crochet differently so if yours are coming up big I’d recommend using a smaller 3mm hook instead ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope this helps!
        Naomi xx

  96. Shakina

    Hi, I loved ur work.. I used your base and created these sandals for my one year old.. thank u so much i love these

  97. Elizabeth - USA

    These are just adorable!! I was wondering how i could modify the pattern for a 9/10 mo baby. I would need the sandal just slightly longer and wider. Should i go up a larger hook size or is there a better way? Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Naomi

      Hi Elizabeth,

      For a 9-10 mo I would start by trying a 4mm hook, as it stands I think increasing the hook size is the best way to size up as long as your not increasing too far.
      Hope they come out ok ๐Ÿ™‚
      Naomi xx

  98. Hello there!
    I am putting together a weekly series of free crochet patterns for baby items on our blog, The Firefly Hook, and I would love to feature your pattern. Our readers would click on a link which would bring them directly them to your site, and these sandals. Let me know if that’s okay.

    Abbey (for The Firefly Hook)

  99. abbi

    Thank you so much for your delightful pattern. My niece has asked me to make some , the first pair are finished, and they will be travelling abroad to her home where I know they will create much excitement.
    I found your pattern easy but did do a trial run so that I could resolve any mistakes – and they were mine, not yours.
    Second pair to be started next! Thanks again. Abbi

  100. I just love your blog and have made me an instant reader! I am in love with these sandals and I cannot wait to make them for all the little girls in my world! Please come check out my blog!

  101. Ally

    Hi, This is a lovely pattern but I am a little confused . You say start with 14 chain but that doesnt work do you mean 17 chain or am I missing something ? Im an Aussie and use UK terms although I am adapt with US terms . I am also a beginner . Love the sandals ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. Hi Thank you for writing the pattern according to British crochet terms. I live in SA and we go according to these. I have previously converted patterns but it makes it so much easier not to have to. I am about to try your pattern for my second pair of baby sandals. Thank you once again Helen

  103. jessica Mercado

    I am brand new at crocheting and I’m not sure what this means ” Working back along the other side the chains”. Is that the same thing as turning? I think what throws me off is the “other side”.
    Thanks for your patience with me ๐Ÿ™‚

  104. Jan

    Hi Naomi, just found your site of baby slippers. Printed the flower power baby sandals, but am unable to get the rest of the patterns on that site. Could you direct me back to that site, so I can get the rest of your adorable patterns? Thankyou, Jan from USA

    • Naomi

      Hi Jan,

      This is my only pattern for baby sandals. Quite often it is included in other blog round-ups of crochet baby sandal patterns but as there have been a number I have no way of telling which may have led you here!
      That said… The most recent to include my pattern was HERE so perhaps this will be the one or at least similar to the one you have lost?!
      I hope that helps and thanks for stopping by!
      Naomi x

  105. Karisa

    Such a cute pattern, I finally found the time to sit down and work it. I am stuck on the bobble button part. It wasn’t included in the picture tutorial, a button was used instead, but I thought the bobble button was cute and wanted to learn how to do it. Would you happen to have a photo tutorial or a link to a helpful video? It doesn’t seem to come out correctly when I do it.

  106. Marie

    Hi love these sandals for my friends little girl what is confusing me is when I started the left sandal the bottom didn’t look the same as the right sandal is there any way of getting them the same bottoms xxx

    • Naomi

      Hi Marie, I’m not sure why that is there is not a left or right, it is a straight sole as tiny baby feet need no curvature. They really ought to be exactly the same, sorry I can’t be more help! xxx

  107. Heather

    I just made one of the pair today for my daughter to wear for a special function. I love them!

  108. Sharlene

    Thank you so much for posting this pattern. I’ve been looking for sandal booties for some time now. You will never now how much I appreciate this. Now my granddaughters will have feet everyone will talk about.

  109. Amanda W

    I have a daughter that I would like to have some of these for but she is 2 can these be made for bigger kids or just babies?

    • Naomi

      Hi Amanda, I’m afraid I have never made these sandals up to that size, they really are just baby sandals. An extra round could be worked out to increase the size but you would also need to add something to the sole for grip for little walkers, and at this time I haven’t done it myself.
      Sorry not to be of more help! Naomi xx

  110. Cheryl

    LOVE these sandals. My niece just had her first baby in April and I want a pair of these for her (size 3-6 months). Would you be able to make me a pair in white with a light pink flower? Please tell me how to go about ordering this. Thank you.

    • Naomi

      Hi Cheryl, Thankyou for enquiring! I will email you the details on ordering to the address you have given ๐Ÿ™‚ Naomi xx

  111. Joan Haines

    I just made two pairs. They turned out beautifully. I don’t know how I could show you the pictures I took so you can see how cool your pattern is!!

    • Naomi

      Hi Joan, I’m so pleased! If you have a facebook account you can share your photos on the Lovely Little Life page, I’d love to see them! xxx

  112. Afeefa

    Hi Naomi!
    I love what you’re doing , keep up the good work!! Just wondered if I could have the information to buy a pair of these beauties?
    Please please let me know

    • Naomi

      Hi Susie, at the beginning of this post there is a link to the photo tutorial for this pattern, there is a picture that shows just what I mean for the beginning of round 2. I hope this helps! Naomi xxx

  113. Nikki

    Hi!! I’m in America and I’ve got my pattern ready and marked with the conversions…. quick question, do you know what the conversion is for the hook? I can’t seem to find the “letter” size

      • Nikki

        I adjusted your pattern perfectly to a NB size
        Same size hook, US D
        ch 10 instead of 14

        So, I basically removed the interior 4 stitches, on the first round I removed 2 htr and 2 sc. Then adjusted the remaining 2 rounds accordingly.

        You have made an excellent pattern. I have never been able to use a free pattern offered on the internet before and not have problems. You, have done a fantastic job, very impressive!! I have been crocheting for 15 years and this is the easiest pattern I have read for making baby sandals.


  114. Brittni


    I had a question. Is there anyway you have a pattern for this in a bigger size like adult sizes. Like a women’s 5 or 5.5

    • Naomi

      Hi Brittni, I’m afraid I have never tried to make theses sandals in an adults size so I don’t have a pattern. Sorry! xx

  115. Terra

    I like your patterns so I’m going to give then a try for my 4 month old daughter. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

  116. I love these baby sandals. Just made a pair with a bigger hook, 4mm, 12cm from toe to heel. I’m translating it to Portuguese to add it to my blog http://www.amocroche.com, where I put a link to your blog. I love everything you make and want to keep translating your patterns so that Brazilian crocheters can profit from your good taste, if it’s okay with you. Thanks!

    • Naomi

      Hi Maria, I’m very sorry to say that I don’t. Those gloves were designed as I went and I didn’t make notes back then. I am hoping to revisit them and write the pattern soon, I will email you as soon as I have!
      Naomi x

  117. Arua

    Hello! This is a pretty pattern! Would you mind if I made this item and sold it? I will definitely credit you!

    • Naomi

      Hello Arua, Thankyou for asking! I have no problem with you making and selling from my patterns as long as I am properly credited as the designer on labels/ blog posts/ etc.. and a link is given back here where relevant ๐Ÿ™‚ I only ask that the pattern and photographs are not replicated or sold in any way.

      Thanks for coming by! Naomi x

    • Naomi

      Hi Sofiia, it sounds like you might be having a tension issue. Perhaps try working them with a looser tension in mind or on a slightly bigger hook to counter tight tension? xx

  118. Tracy

    Love the pattern! I just made a pair and it was so easy! Your pattern is easy to follow! Thanks for posting it!

  119. Lillian

    Thank you Naomi these turned out adorable! There was a posting with three beautiful pairs of sandals last week one of which was these. I have received several requests from people to make them. So far one order is complete. What does one charge for a completed pair? I looked on the etsy site but prices on there I’m not sure people here would be willing to pay. Any suggestions?

  120. Regina

    LOVE your patterns. My daughter is expecting my first grandchild, a girl. I am making these like crazy for her and my step-son’s new daughter also.

  121. Lois

    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern for these sandals……….they are so cute. I made a pair this morning from your pattern and they turned out so well. I am a knitter by nature, rather than a crocheter, but honestly, these may turn around my thoughts on crocheting. Thanks again

  122. fareha
