They are seen all over the world. The trend of the season influenced me to try something new: create my own espadrilles.
At the moment they hang in every store: soles by Prim for espadrilles. There are endless possibilities to create your own shoes. By sewing, crochet, knitting or any combination.
I chose to crochet. The only tools you need are a crochet hook, yarn (preferably cotton), scissors and a pointy sewing needle. Perfect project for your summer holidays.
Pattern: by myself
Hook size: 3.0 mm
Yarn: Naturaline, mercerised organic cotton
Yardage: 50 g/ 120 m
Off course I wanted something unique. The patterns I found on the web weren’t appealing to me. So I had to create something by my own. I tried several forms like squares, rectangles and ended with a triangle. Some crochet stitches around and I had the form I was looking for.
With the same colour I attached the pieces to the soles.
These shoes are my favorite summer accessory. They are very comfortable.
Though I blocked into shape, the heel part stretches a lot. The sheet that comes with the soles shows the size for fabrics. Crocheted or knitted pieces are more stretchable. For the next espadrilles I will crochet smaller pieces. But overall, I’m in love with my new shoes. Definitely not the last ones :-)
