Lacy Crochet Boots Pattern For Adults (Made with Flip Flops!)

Don’t know which shoes to wear to that music festival? Want to wear something that’s more comfortable than a pair of sweaty socks and some old sneakers? How about these bohemian, gladiator sandal inspired lacy crochet boots? You can even re-use last year’s flip-flops and turn this into a green DIY recycling project – only this one will turn out cute.

The Make & Do Crew free pattern is available on their site, but if you’d prefer to look over an ad-free, printable PDF with a photo tutorial, you can purchase it from the website for a small fee. The bonus to buying the PDF is that it comes with a ruler to ensure you get just the right fit when sizing your flip-flops and crocheting the boots. Whichever pattern route you choose to go, you’ll have the makings of an adorable pair of crochet boots your friends and family will love. You may even have to make your sister, friend, mom, or aunt a pair!

If you make yourself a pair of these lacy crocheted boots with flip-flop soles, you might want to check out the other flip-flop sole shoe patterns available from the Make & Do Crew – there are plenty of options to choose from, including the Cabin Boots, Moccasins, Breckenridge Boots, and Lightweight Slippers. You can also sign up for the Make & Do Crew newsletter, which arrives in your inbox each week with free patterns, tips, and tricks for all your crochet needs.

While the lacy crochet boots are made for womens’ sizes 5-10, you can make larger sizes by adding additional rows to the boot foot base (there are instructions in the pattern). If you want to sell these, you can do so with permission from the author, but be sure and link back to the original post. You may not, of course, sell or distribute this pattern as your own. Always be sure to link back to the original source when sharing.

To make your lacy crochet boots, you’ll need to gather the following materials:

  • 4 skeins of cotton yarn (the pattern recommends using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton in “Ecru”)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Size “B” and “H” crochet hooks
  • Ruler
  • Tape
  • Flip-Flops (one size smaller than you’d usually wear)
  • Sharp tool (the pattern recommends an awl, skewer, or drill bit)
  • Sharp scissors
  • E6000 glue (available at most craft stores)
  • Stitch markers (these are optional but always a good idea to keep track of where you are in the pattern)

Gauge is important in this pattern to ensure the right fit, so be sure and work  up some stitching before you jump into the project. Make sure that for 13 stitches, it equals 4″, and just under 9 rows should also equal 4″ (this is for the ankle shaft portion of the pattern). You’ll also need to be familiar with the following stitches: single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), skip (sk), slip stitch (sl st), chain (ch), wrong side (WS), right side (RS), main color (mc), single crochet two together (sc2tog). All of these should be familiar to a wide range of crocheters, so even if you’re a beginner, these should not be too difficult to make.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
