Women's barefoot sandals - knitting pattern
Two patterns for women’s barefoot sandals, quick and easy to knit! One in a V shape, flattering to the leg, with ties that you can fix at the back or cross at the back and tie at the front. The other has more coverage and a lacy triangle which ties at the back. Make them for beach weddings, to take on holiday, or as gifts. Embellish with beads, buttons or bells – or leave unadorned and let the yarn shine through. Because they are simple and have long ties, it doesn’t matter what size foot you are knitting for – so you can make these as gifts and not worry about sizing! There are four pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. Oddments of yarn weight 2 and 3 were used for the pictured sandals, which are knit flat, so only straight needles are required

I learned to knit as a child living in both Ireland and England. I love the intricate work of aran garments, but it was only when my first grandchild came along that I began to design for babies and children - for her first child my daughter had wanted a tiny sweater with a particular aran stitch on the front, I couldn't find a pattern so decided to make one up!
