my feet were cold so I made these from some scraps I had lying around. They were sooooo easy and I love them!



ok, here's how to make them:

1. knit a rectangle as long as your foot, switching colors for the last 1/4 of the rectangle (remember they will stretch depending on needle size and yarn)

2. Last two rows K2tog for entire row

3. break off yarn and string through last row, cinch yarn

4. sew the heel and toe together and add the straps and buttons!

I love the buttons! And the two tones of yarn! OooOh!

I made a couple pair for myself but I just cast on 32 and knit about 7" garter stitch.  Then you cast off, fold it in half lengthwise, sew up one end then sew up one end AND about 2-3" of the top.  You'll have a slit style opening and then you knit (or crochet) a strap.  They're easy peasy.  They turn out just like these, too... but I like the addition of buttons  Cheesy

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

those are amazing.  and i hate that they're supposed to be easy (i'm a beginner knitter!)! 

Then you cast off, fold it in half lengthwise, sew up one end then sew up one end AND about 2-3" of the top.  You'll have a slit style opening and then you knit (or crochet) a strap.  They're easy peasy.  They turn out just like these, too... but I like the addition of buttons  Cheesy

so you sew up one end and that's the heel and then you sew up the other end and a bit of the top and that forms the toe?

I can do garter stitch!

thanks a ton for the instructions i'll try and make a pair!!

There's no sole (they're not too slippery, but you can get a product that you can dot on to make them anti-slip) and all you have to do is knit a rectangle that's as long as your foot (they stretch A LOT!), make sure to knit two rows of Ktog at the toe and run the end string through to cinch. Sew up the heel and toe, add buttons and make two straps!
