Well, these will be my summer shoes from now on, the ribbons are temporary, until I find some in light brown leather.

Instructions for making these are as follows: Get some Prym soles, or use some old espadrilles that you don’t like and some cotton yarn. I have used Solberg Fiol, and crocheting needle 1,25 mm. It’s important to use as small a needle as possible, so that the fabric wont stretch too much in use. You can also of course line these with a sturdy cotton fabric if you want more solid shoes.

Front part:

Start with chain 48.

Row 1: Chain 3, 48 double crochets.

Row 2: Chain 3, 46 double crochets, skip 1, 1 double crochet.

Row 3: As row 2, but only 45 double crochets before the skip 1 and 1 double crochet.

Row 4: Chain 3, 9 double crochets, 8 half doble crochets, 8 single crochets, 8 half double crochets, 9 double crochets, skip 1, 1 double crochet.

Row 5: As row 4, but only 7 single crochets in the middle.

Row 6: As row 4, but you should have 8 double crochets first and last instead of 9.

Row 7: Chain 1, 17 single crochets, 16 half double crochets, 7 double crochets, skip 1, 1 double crochet.

Row 8: Chain 3, 8 double crochets, 16 half double crochets, 15 single crochets, skip 1, 1 single crochet.

Row 9: As row 7, but 15 single crochets in the start.

Row 10: As row 4, but you should have 7 double crochets first and last instead of 9.

Row 11: As row 4, but you should have 7 double crochets first and last and 7 single crochets in the middle.

Row 12: As row 4, but you should have 7 double crochets first and last, and 7 half double crochets on both sides.

Row 13: As row 2, but only 35 double crochets before the skip 1 and 1 double crochet.

Row 14: As row 2, but only 34 double crochets before the skip 1 and 1 double crochet.

Row 15: As row 2, but only 33 double crochets before the skip 1 and 1 double crochet.

Make the other one the same, but turn it when you attach it to the sole.

Heel – optional:
(I’m not entirely happy with this, it’s a little too big I think, so you can try and make it smaller if you like, maybe 10 to start instead – adapt as needed in the numbers of stitches), and skip the repeats of rows 13 – 18 and 36 – 41 to get a tighter fit)

Start with chain 18.

Row 1: Chain 3, 17 double crochets.

Row 2: As row 1, but make 1 extra double crochet in the start and skip 1 in the end.

Row 3: As row 1.

Row 4: As row 2.

Row 5: As row 1.

Row 8: Chain 1, 3 single crochets, 3 half double crochets, 6 double crochets.

Row 35: As row 11.

Row 36 – 41: As row 30 – 35.

Row 42: As row 1.

Row 43 – 46: As row 2 – 5 (be sure to check if this makes a crescent shape, otherwise change the end in which you increase and decrease).

Ribbon – optional:

Use a little scrap of yarn and chain as many stitches as it takes to get around 125 cm. Turn and make single crochets all the way to the end.

Finishing – optional:

On the inside of the front parts farthest away from your toes, make 3 double crochets, turn, chain 1 and crochet those 3 stitches together with the main part, so that you make a little loop to tread the ribbon through. (This is not shown in the photos just yet, but you start with the middle of the ribbon through this little loop, then go to the back of the heel, and then to the front again and tie it toghether. This will make the shoe sit better on the foot.)

Assembly:

Fasten the front and heel parts to the sole by using slip stitches. Be sure to place them symmetrically. Also secure all corners thoroughly, so that the shoes won’t fall apart when in use.
