Please help a 'dumb-dumb' How are these worn??? And what is the advantage of them???


Decorative like foot jewelry hence "bare-foot sandal" and no you are not stupid (I just found a spoiled packet of cream cheese in my canned goods cupboard, now that's stupid)--I challenge the first person to make one and photo it on their foot! Really cute and that is why a lot of grand daughters will enjoy these. Not really a sandal because there isn't a sole or is that soul or solo or Seoul--no that's a city--well spell check okayed all spellings but not the city unless you capitalize the "s".

Thanks for the pattern Knottyme! My 88 yo friend will love this pattern--she's an avid crocheter and makes things for anybody's grand daughter.

Thank you so much for the education. I'm with you alol that would be a great present for grands. It is now on my list too. Thank you very much. I love this web site and everyone on here who is so helpful and not making anyone feel dumb!!!

LOL, Ask4j, I have probably done more mindless things than that! My fridge and microwave sit next to each other. I can't tell you how many times they get mixed up.

Maybe we should rename these sandals as No Sole on Mio!

Just thought of another use, Dot-I. You can walk in the surf with these without ruining them.

Not just for the young (I hope!). I'm 71 and the first pair I make is for ME, then I will make a pair for my DD. She always wore toe rings, which I thought were a bit much, but, hey, whatever makes one happy! I bought her a toe ring from a jewelry party and she loved it. She will love these, too. I go barefoot a lot and these will be such fun to wear. I will please myself! I am grateful for the pattern.

Thank you for the pattern. I've just tried one and think I must be misinterpreting the instructions for knitting together.

It's "Skip every 2 sts on the anklet" that I'm having trouble with- I had to stretch the foot triangle a lot to achieve this and then the finished sandal wouldn't go over my foot!

Any ideas to help me, please?

I've sorted myself out!

I skipped one stitch on the anklet and that worked perfectly.

Thank you! I have never found a knitted pattern for these and all the crocheted patterns have a 'string tie' that is really a pain to make and probably to wear. going to love trying this one out. Is this the only design you have done? I think I have a knitted butterfly that would be so cute on these,....
