The best summer project 2018
This has been the best and not so easiest project we’ve taken on this summer for Café Knitting.
First the instructions were almost impossible to follow. Then the stitch count was always changing and we were for ever unraveling our work. I revised the pattern for easier reading and made several mistakes myself. I think we may have this pattern down pat by the time we finished our second set, and we just bought a third pair of flip-flops this week. By the time summer is finished we will be experts, hear me laugh hysterically! You’d think such a little pattern would be easy to follow, with only 7 rows. The rows that gave us the most problems were (3-4), rows (1, 2, 5, 6 & 7) didn’t give us problems.
Problems aside, these cosy boho inspired flip-flops were fun to whip up, I even added a charm on my second set.
Just before summer we finished the first set of flip-flops and you’ll see one has a bigger hole in the front than the other, I just call this air ventilation. I don’t care they are not perfect, they’re still cozy and good enough for me.
You can see we did a great job with our crocheting for the second set, and these ones fit me much better. The charm was easy to put on as I crochet, on the fourth row.
Now that we have our third set of flip-flops, I don’t know what colour of yarn I’ll use or what colour the next set of flip-flops look like because my friend picked them up, only that they are size (6). A note on how much yarn you need and one ball does a set of flip-flops. It took us about 5-6 two hour sessions to finish a set of flip-flops.
Yarn: T-shirt yarn, by Bernat maker fashion, 72% cotton, 28% nylon, 115 m, Bulky (5) weight, colours are red & blue.

Question: Has anyone crocheted these flip-flops and how did it go?
