Crochet Flip Flops

 

Ask Me Monday with Vickie Howell: Crochet Flip Flops

Crochet Flip Flops

This week on Ask Me Monday, we’re closing out the Summer months (and already planning for the weekend) with a quick project that personalizes a poolside staple! Crochet Flip Flops are just a pair of any type you like, with a little embellishment to make them uniquely YOU. In this tutorial, I show how to create a granny stripe stip, how to single crochet over a strap, and how to bring yarn (and studs) together to finish your pair. Enjoy!
