Crocheted Barefoot Sandals.

<!-- cats-rockin-crochet_crosscol_AdSense1_468x60_as

What better way to dress up your bare feet this summer with barefoot sandals. The variations are only limited by your imagination. Some lovely soft left over cotton yarn a few beads and you are on your way.
Some lovely blue pearls and small cats eye beads match this cotton yarn really well.
A sturdy pink cotton yarn and some wooden beads really give off that beachy feel.

Flowers that really grow on you, with a contrasting variegated cotton.
Mmm, pink and beads.

Made especially for Alisha, who loves green and barefoot sandals.
I really had a challenge here with the single crochet foundation row used in the ties for a much neater look. Not only is it time consuming, but at times I found it difficult finding the space to crochet into. So I used sight and feel to over come the slowness and to find the correct opening. I crocheted all of my ends in as I went along to avoid the sewing in of ends once finished. These are really quite easy and quick to make. I made a couple of pairs for a xmas gift and the pair for Alisha is for her birthday which is just after the new year.
