Frequently Asked Questions

Will The Yarn Rip Through The Soles Of My Flip-flops?

Most crochet shoe and sandal patterns suggest using an old pair of flip-flops as a base so they can be worn outside. You simply make holes in the top of the sole and crochet through them. This is by far the most difficult part about crocheting footwear. Once you have got the first row through the holes, the tension of the yarn is evenly distributed and so the chances of the holes ripping open are very low.

Why Is My Yarn Ripping Through The Sole In My First Row?

When using flip-flops as a sole for your crocheted shoes, you need to make sure that you are using as small a tool as possible to make the holes that you eventually crochet into. If the hole is too big then there will not be enough strength in the sole to cope with crocheting or with wear.

You also need to make sure that you are leaving enough of a gap at the top of the sole before piercing so aim for ¼ inch or more.

You should also use a small crochet hook for the first row where possible to prevent tearing or weakening the holes you have made. Once the first row is done, the tension from the yarn will be evenly distributed so you can move onto the proper hook size.

What Should I Use To Make Holes In The Flip-flops?

Really, you can use anything that is narrow and has enough of a point. Clay modeling needles are quite good, as are small leather awls. If you don’t have these types of tools you can always try a small drill bit or a knitting needle. Just remember to be careful and not to poke into yourself!

What Yarn Do I Use For My Crochet Sandals?

For crochet, you can sort of use whatever yarn you like as long as you make any necessary adjustments to the pattern. Crochet is your hobby and a chance to experiment with your own creativity so go wild! 

Try to opt for a durable yarn where possible for shoes as you will be wearing them. If you like warmer shoes you can always go for some wool – it has insulating properties and is antimicrobial to reduce foot smell!
