Free Crochet Pattern – Barefoot Sandals!

Free crochet pattern – barefoot sandals. It’s the season for barefoot’n! What a fun project this free “Pearl of the Sea” Barefoot Sandals crochet pattern is to make, wear and gift! Easy, hooks up fast, great yarn stash-buster; and by adding the beading, they become elegant and festive. I made the coral colored pair up and my daughter-in-law saw them and promptly claimed them as hers! That made me smile, as she is very fashion-forward and has great taste. So to pass the “test”, was a nice feeling. I used 100% mercerized cotton, category 3, for this pattern and my model is made with Omega Sinfonia. Another great yarn for this project is Patons Grace. The gorgeous wooden crochet hook is an Heirloom Wooden Crochet Hook from Furls Crochet, a size H in Rosewood – YUMMY! As for the beads, really any size bead will work, as long as you can string it onto your yarn. I have a new tutorial on adding beads to your crochet projects, specifically posted to help aid in your success with this pattern. That “Add a Bead” tutorial can be found here.

You can really assist this designer (me πŸ™‚ ) in the visibility/popularity of the pattern listing on Ravelry by using the button below and adding the listing to your favorites and queues πŸ™‚


Pearl of the Sea Barefoot Sandals

Designed by The Hooked Haberdasher


  • Category 3, mercerized 100% cotton yarn 60-75 yards. I used Omega Sinfonia for the model; another good option is Patons Grace
  • Size H (5.00mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry/yarn needle
  • 16 Beads


  • One size fits US women’s shoe size 6-9. Can be adjusted to smaller/larger sizes by reducing/adding motif(s) and chains for toe/ankle straps.


  • +B=add bead with sl st method
  • Ch=chain
  • Dc=double crochet
  • R=row
  • Sc=single crochet
  • Sl st=slip stitch
  • Sk=skip
  • Sp=space
  • St(s)= stitch/stitches


  1. When instructions are in brackets [ ] those sts are worked as a set.
  2. Parentheses ( ) at the end of a row = total sts for that row.


  • Adding beads to your project: String 16 beads onto your yarn. When the pattern reads +B, add bead using a slip stitch. If you are unfamiliar with adding beads to your yarn and project, see my tutorial here.
  • Beginning ch1 does not count as a st for R3 and repeats of R3.
  • Always keep your bead to the right side of your work. R3 and repeats of R3 is the wrong side of your work. When working your sc rows, bend/push your bead forward, essentially working the st behind the bead to keep the bead on the right side of your work.
  • To don your sandals, tie a loose single knot approximately 2-3 inches from the end of one ankle strap. Hook toe loop over one toe, motifs lie flat on top of foot, draw straps around ankle to heel, crossing over and back around ankle. Place the unknotted ankle strap through the knot on the other ankle strap, pulling the unknotted strap taut to your comfort and tighten the knot at the outside of the ankle. ENJOY wearing your Pearl of the Sea Barefoot Sandals.

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.
