Ring of Petals – Barefoot Sandals

Flower Foot Thong

Who does not love the warm summer!  As much as I love all the seasons I wait with much anticipation for those days to grow warm enough for me to ditch the socks and shoes and run around the yard barefoot (Yes, I know this behavior is normally suited for younger children and not a 30+ woman).  I just can’t deny myself the feeling of the warm earth beneath my feet.  Foot Jewelry But I still wanted my feet to look cute, so there came my obsession with ‘Foot Thongs’.

This pattern does work up quickly, but care should be given to make sure that they don’t get twisted.

It is easy to twist the flower (causing the back of the flower to twist to the front), so check your flower often as you make it. This is especially prevalent when doing the final two flowers (flowers 3 and 4 for the adult size pattern).

Flower:
CH7, SLP ST in center of CH3 circle (forming a circle, this will be the circle that you 7DC in), working in the CH7 just completed RSLP ST in last 4 chains made (you only need to go through one loop of each chain) (leaving the first 3CH unworked), CH1, 7DC , SLP ST in CH3 circle

Well, its getting to be that time of year again when I can’t wait to go barefoot and feel the warm earth under my feet.  (Okay, its only the second week of February so I might have the ‘itch’ a bit early)

So, when I stumbled upon this beautiful Circle Necklace by Cre8tions Crochet I knew I could take the tutorial, change just a few basic things and have some beautiful foot jewelry.
Ring Necklace, Cre8tions Crochet
Materials:
Plastic Rings – I used 1/2, 3/4 and 1 1/8th inch
Size 10 thread – Aunt Lydia’s
2.25mm hook/3 steel
Sewing needle that you can thread the thread through, but is small enough to thread beads on
Circle Foot Thong/KatiDCreations
Keeping it simple – I followed the basic directions listed on Cre8tions Crochet – Circle Necklace (while using size 10 thread) for crocheting the circles, deciding circle placement (keeping in mind that it will go on my foot and not around my neck) and connecting/placing beads.

Where my design varies is –

Toe loop: Join with a Slip Stitch in the top of a Single Crochet working from front to the back, then Chain necessary length to go around my toe and join with another Slip Stitch in the same Single Crochet this time working from the back to the front, finish off.  (this keeps both unfinished ends on the back)  Tie a secure knot and then worked ends back under a few Single Crochets on the back side of ring.

Ankle tie: *Join with a Slip Stitch in the top of a Single Crochet working from front to the back, Chain necessary length to tie around ankle, and finish off*, repeat from *to* once more.  Tie a secure knot where the two ties are and then work ends back under a few Single Crochets on the back side of ring.

If you are curious where I got those cute Nail Wraps, they are Jamberry!  I really love them and are (in my opinion) so worth the time and money!
