Crocodile Stitch Gladiator Sandals for Women, Crochet Pattern, Both Indoor and Outdoor Versions Included, Boho Dreamz Sandals, US Sizes 5-12

Crocodile Stitch Gladiator Sandals Crochet Pattern for Woman

Crocodile Stitch or Dragon Scales Slipper Crochet pattern

Now includes a bonus outdoor version with Flip flop Soles!

I am so stoked about this crochet pattern! Now, why did I not come up with this idea before? My Baby Gladiators were probably the first pattern of its kind and I got rave reviews for it. I got many requests for adult size Gladiator sandals, but a plain one did not catch my fancy. Adding the crocodile stitch to the toe top has made all the difference, don't you agree? From the many pictures I added, you might have already guessed that I really enjoyed photographing this sandal. It looks even more fab when you wear it on your feet. If you make one, I would love to see a picture.

A big thank you to Nikki Little for suggesting the beautiful name, Boho Dreamz Sandals. I loved it because it has the "Dreamz" from my blog name. 

* The pattern includes US sizes, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12. Includes an indoor version with crochet soles and a bonus outdoor version with Flip Flop soles.

*Hooks F(3.75mm) and H(5mm) are used for the pattern.

* The sole of the indoor version is worked using worsted weight yarn. It has two layers and a layer of quilter's batting is added between them to make it sturdy and cushy.

* The right and left soles are shaped differently just like regular sandals.

* The upper is worked using DK ( size 3 yarn). I picked Baby Bee Sweet Delight Yarn from Hobby Lobby, as this yarn was thinner than most DK and did not make the crocodile stitches bulky. The yarn comes in many colors making it a delight to work with. The colors used were Carrot, Infant Teal, and Naked. 

* The crochet pattern is designed in such a way that you get a sturdy sandal that you can comfortably walk in. 

* Additional supplies for outdoor version: 
 1.) A pair of beige Flip flops (Old Navy preferred)
 2.) 48LB hemp cord for border
 3.) A 2.5mm hook or any piercing tool
 4.) Shoe goo or any footwear adhesive
 5.) Sewing pins to position the ankle side on the sole

Crochet Baby Headband Pattern

Crochet retro Headband Pattern

Use this crochet pattern to make a retro style headband. Who wouldn't look cute in a headband like this? The pattern includes all sizes from baby to adult. The headband is worked using the same stitch as my popular Brooklyn mittens pattern, the extended single crochet. Both the front and back of the stitch look equally good. It is completely up to you which side you want to tie the bow on. I hope you enjoy crocheting this headband.

Pin it for later:
